The moment a father holds his little princess in his hands for the first time, promising he will never let anything harm her, the world stops for a while. One actor from Bollywood who can’t stop smiling and feel emotional whenever he thinks of this special moment is Shahid Kapoor.
In a very adorable interview, Shahid revealed what he felt when he held Misha for the first time in his hands and how he immediately thought of wifey, Mira’s father.
And guess what? Right in that moment, Shahid called up his father-in-law to apologise for anything he might have done unintentionally to upset him.
This is what the actor had to say about the entire account:
"I was both ecstatic and scared. I began thinking of Mira's father and how he must have felt when he gave away his baby, his daughter to this strange guy, an actor from Mumbai with a ponytail and coloured hair, who perhaps thought he was a 'cool dude'. I called him up instantly and apologised if I had troubled him at any point. I may have overlooked his point of view somewhere, regarding something which may have been important to him, this realisation came when I held a baby girl in my hands when I felt vulnerable. I don't want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything."
Talking about his little angel and the reason why he took paternity leave for six months, Shahid said:
"I've spent a lot of time with Misha. I took a six-month paternity leave. I did it more for myself than her. I didn't want to miss out on the experience. People cautioned me that it was not a good decision. That I'd be out of the limelight. But being an actor I'm a freelancer."
If this is not all, you would be delighted to know that Shahid is a complete hands-on daddy and even changes Misha’s diapers.
“I change her diapers, I give her bottle feeds. I fed her first solids. I enjoy hanging with her when she moves in the walker.”
The Rangoon actor further added:
“I like looking at her when she rolls around. In fact, I mimic her funny sounds rather than teach her words. So that she feel's we're sharing a conversation."
That’s the sweetest interview we have heard from new daddy Shahid Kapoor. Team BollywoodShaadis wishes lots of giggles and cutesy moments to Shahid and his angel, Misha.
