Shahid will be “world’s best dad,” says mom Neelima Azim


Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor and wife Mira Rajput are expecting their first child. While there were speculations about Mira’s pregnancy, Shahid only recently confirmed that he is going to be a father.

However, the would-be-granny and Shahid’s mother Neelima Azim has revealed that she had sensed it much earlier, even before her son told her about Mira’s pregnancy.

“Of course, Shahid had told me at the right time, but I guessed it much earlier. Call it a mother’s intuition or sixth sense, but I was pretty sure Mira was expecting earlier. I was extremely happy when Shahid confirmed what I was thinking,” the dancer-actress was quoted as saying by a leading publication.

“It’s a great feeling becoming a grandmother and very difficult to express in words. We are all feeling so thrilled, excited and yet emotional... It’s a happy time for us all,” an excited Neelima said.

She also said that Shahid will be a wonderful father. “The world’s best dad,” she said. However, she is not fretting over a grand-son or grand-daughter in particular. She just wants the baby to be healthy and happy. “I just want the baby to be happy, healthy and fine... Whether it’s a boy or girl doesn’t matter,” Neelima, mother of two sons – Shahid and Ishaan Khattar said.

Shahid and Mira’s baby is due in autumn – late September or early October. The couple got married  on July 7, 2015.
