A birthday is the most special day in everyone's life, no matter whether they celebrate it or not! It is a perfect day to pause from your busy schedule and celebrate the life you are blessed with. While some plan for lavish birthday bashes, there are some, who likes to keep it simple with their family. And Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor is from the latter category. The actor, who never fails to make every girl's heart flutter, is a married man and he values his family time above all.

There was a time in the film industry when stars were considered to marry another star and everyone had thought that Shahid will also end up marrying a B-town beauty. But he gave all his fans a shock when he had fallen in love with the Delhi-beauty, Mira Rajput Kapoor. The duo was introduced to each other in an official rishta meeting. And the moment we saw them together posing for happy wedding pictures, we knew they have always meant to be and it was destiny that has brought them together.
Recently, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Shahid revealed that he will be celebrating his 39th birthday in Chandigarh as he is shooting for his film. However, his family is with him and he will be spending time with them. Shahid also shared that he values his family above all and had said, "Being grounded is very important. Success and failure come and go but family is a priority for me. To sustain a career that’s long, you need to stick to the basics and you need to stay connected with yourself as a human being. I feel very fortunate that I’ve two kids and my wife by my side. I’m happy that we’re always there for each other."
On July 7, 2019, Shahid and Mira had completed four years of marital bliss and the star-wife had taken to her Instagram handle to wish her superstar husband. Mira had shared a candid picture from their wedding with Shahid, and it radiated couple goals. She had captioned it as, "You make my world and me go round #happy4". On the other hand, Shahid had shared the first-ever picture of Mira he had saved on his mobile. Along with it, he wrote, "Her first picture I saved on my phone. And now almost every second picture has her in it. She is #life. I love you @mira.kapoor thank you for being you."

Shahid was a completely different man before tying the knot and the actor himself agrees with it. We remember in another interview with the Hindustan Times, Shahid had talked about the changes marriage and kids have brought in his life. He had said, "It’s like a wild horse that used to be free in the wild. But for four years, he has been domesticated. So, my self-image has completely changed. I’m a domesticated horse now (laughs). On a serious note, your sense of identity becomes different before marriage as compared to when you have children and wife to come back home to. Then, it’s not just ‘you’ anymore, but more about ‘us.’ I think once you get there, then it’s difficult to get back to ‘you’ in terms of how you even think about life. Your thoughts and decision making a transition from ‘I, me and myself’ to ‘us’. I think that’s a big change."
In the same interview, Shahid had revealed the one thing that he loves about Mira. The actor had said that Mira is so comfortable in her own skin that she never looked out of the showbiz. She had blended beautifully in the industry and became a part of it. Shahid had also revealed that he knew about this from the first day itself when they were done with the marriage rituals and had stepped out for the pictures. In that moment, he had realised that Mira had her own individuality that made her extremely special.
