The very moment when your little bundle of joy calls you ‘maa’, a zillion of feelings evokes inside a woman. While embracing motherhood is precious, but raising a little ball of happiness is not a cakewalk. It is their ear-to-ear smile that makes everything worth! Motherhood indeed changes you as your life starts revolving around them and they become your priority. And how truly, Mira Rajput Kapoor must have experienced the same twice when she had welcomed her firstborn, Misha Kapoor and second baby, Zain Kapoor.
It was on April 20, 2018, when Shahid Kapoor had taken to Instagram and had shared a picture of their firstborn, an all-elated Misha Kapoor, who was lying on a blackboard with colourful chalked balloons and the words “Big Sister” written on it. Ever since, we had been waiting to catch a glimpse of junior Kapoor when the star wife had decided to make our Diwali happier and had treated us with his first picture! Giving a glimpse of junior Kapoor on Diwali, Mira had written, "Hello world.”
Recently, an unseen picture Of Mira Rajput Kapoor and Zain Kapoor from their family photoshoot has emerged on the internet and we can’t help but drool over the endearing photo. The photographer, Ankit Chawla had posted a picture of the mother-son duo on her birthday and it is too adorable for words. While mommy, Mira looks stunning in an ill-fitted white shirt which she had teamed with a statement neckpiece and had kept her hair straight, her then-newborn son, Zain could be seen wrapped in a grey blanket. Mira couldn’t take her eyes off her little bundle of joy, who could be seen nestled into her arms!
Time does fly within a blink of an eye and on September 5, 2019, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor’s ‘second project together’, Zain Kapoor had turned 1. We all were waiting for a heartfelt wish from Mira and Shahid for their little one on his birthday, it was only in the evening when the former had posted an all-happy picture with her adorable one-year-old son. She had captioned the picture as “Try and find Zain without a kissie patch... Happy Birthday to my world #bigbabyboy.” Beneath the picture, Zain’s chachu, Ishaan Khatter had commented, “Zizi bear.”
With the Vogue Wedding Book 2019, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor had let their fans into their world and had taken us on their journey of how they first met, marriage and kids, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor. Needless to say, Misha and Zain won’t be seeing their dad playing a drug addict or a lovestruck destructive anti-hero on-screen any time soon. Speaking of their roles as ‘Daddy Pig’ and ‘Mommy Pig’, Shahid had remarked, “For now it’s just Peppa Pig. We’re happy being ‘Mummy Pig’ and ‘Daddy Pig’.”
Where otherwise Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor are chalk and cheese as he’s into German techno, she likes Indie pop, when it comes to bringing up kids, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor, they are a team. Roles are perfectly cut out as Mira is the disciplinarian and Shahid is the softy. Shahid had explained, “Our kids are the first two projects we actually did together. One year into an arranged marriage, when you haven’t spent enough time together [earlier], you really evolve around each other.”
Mira Rajput Kapoor often takes to Instagram and shares pictures from her daily family life. Be it their cycling day out on a vacation, her companies during the ‘walking challenge’, the big sister sticking to her baby brother’s stroller on their walk to Misha and Zain’s cute sibling banter, Mira keeps giving glimpses from the Kapoor life. A few months back, Mira had shared that because they have a toddler around when their second baby Zain was born, they don’t want Misha to feel neglected with his arrival. She had stated, "This time I already have a toddler around and keeping a balance between the one you have and the one that's on its way is very important. Everything changes, and you don't want that the one who has been the apple of your eyes for so long and feels that she's the centre of your world to feel neglected and ignored. That is very important.”
A few days after Diwali 2018, two unseen pictures had gone viral from the celebrations of the Kapoor clan and we were in complete awe of them. In the picture, Shahid, Ishaan, Neliima ji could be seen happily posing for the camera, and the then-newbie mommy, Mira could be seen holding baby Zain in her arms.
2019 marked the first Raksha Bandhan for Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor, we didn’t have an iota of doubt that this one’s going to be a grand one for these two lollies. Their mother, Mira Rajput Kapoor had taken to Instagram and had posted a beautiful picture of Misha seated on her mommy’s lap tying her first-ever rakhi to her baby brother, Zain, who was seated on his dad, Shahid Kapoor’s lap. While you gape at the picture in wonderment, do notice how adorably Misha twins with her mom and Zain, with his dad.
Here we send truckloads of happiness and love to the Kapoor family!
