Shahid changes Misha’s diapers, plays and dances with her: Mira Rajput

Mira Rajput is a young mother and she is enjoying every moment of motherhood. Since Misha is a star kid, she gets all the attention of the media everytime she steps out with her mom and dad but both Shahid and Mira make sure that Misha gets her own space.

"(We will) make sure Misha has her own space and not feel the pressure of being in a certain way because there are people around her (referring to fans)," Mira said.

"I think she is growing to see her father work so hard. She will have to respect that and figure out how she is going to manoeuvre her way through that, and I will help her with that," she said.

Mira said every child should enjoy their childhood the way they feel like.

"They should stay happy, they should have the freedom to do what they want. They should not feel that someone is getting into their space," Mira said during the book launch of noted nutritionist Pooja Makhija's book, 'Eat Delete Junior'.

Mira says Shahid loves Misha very much.

"He loves her so much, I can't explain it in words. Misha knows this as well and she uses that to her advantage."

Mira said she is extremely happy and also surprised to see a different side of Shahid as a doting father.

"He (Shahid) has it in him to be very loving and caring and the love that you have for your children is different. Seeing the fatherly love was surprising for me," she said.

New mothers mostly face sleepless night but Mira has set timetable for her daughter so that both she and Shahid could relax as well.

"I had started with a sleep schedule for Misha much earlier. Both Shahid and I decided that we are going to put Misha to sleep early, so that we get time to be on our own. I did not face any sleepless nights," she said.

Mira said she got a lot of help from family members during pregnancy and even after the birth of her daughter.

"I had a great support system from my family. My mother, sister all of them have gone through motherhood and faced its challenges. There was nothing better than getting the tried and tested advice," she said.

Mira says Shahid is a hands-on dad.  “Shahid as a dad is very hands-on, he wants to do as much as he can, at times I ask him to take it easy and relax. He is always so excited to spend time with Misha. He is a little paranoid when it comes to keeping things clean around Misha, and she is just like her dad, she loves looking at herself in the mirror”.

“Shahid has changed Misha’s diapers, has taken her for a walk, dances with her, he gives her a bath, there is nothing that he hasn’t done with her. It is really great to see that relationship”, Mira Rajput quips.
