Shahid and Mira became parents for the first time in 2016 when daughter Misha was born. Then, Shahid took to his Twitter handle to announce the happy news. Earlier this year, the Batti Gul Meter Chalu actor made the announcement of expecting his second child and posted a photo of his daughter Misha lying happily beside a drawing of balloons with “Big sister” written above them.
Around, Misha’s birth, Shahid took a break from work for several months. He has been a hands-on parent since then. Earlier in an interview with indianexpress.com, he shared, “I just want to be there for my daughter and my second child. I want to spend my life with them. I want to know about their life. I hope that I’m a good influence. I hope I’m not stuck up and can allow them to fly. They have their own identity and destiny… Your job is to be there when they need you, that’s it.”
