Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcomed a baby girl at about 8 pm today at the Hinduja Health Care Surgical hospital in Khar west, suburban Mumbai. It was a normal delivery for Mira and the baby weighs about 2.8 kilos.
Both mother and the daughter are said to be doing well and are in a healthy condition, Shahid's team informed.
The couple had tied the knot on July 7 last year and in February, news broke that they are expecting their first child, due in September.
Here's what Shahid tweeted after the delivery.
She has arrived and words fall short to express our happiness. Thank you for all your wishes.— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) August 26, 2016
While there have been strong rumours about him joining the cast of Sanjay Leela Bhansal's Padmavati, post Udta Punjab, the actor hasn't officially signed up any projects as he intends to spend a considerable amount of time with his wife and their newborn.
Just three days ago, Shahid had shared this picture of Mira and him, awaiting their little one.
Soon after the announcement of their baby's arrival, congratulations from the industry started pouring in while the #MiraRajput was trending at number 4.
