Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput tied the knot on July 7, 2015 in a private ceremony. While Shahid is a Bollywood superstar, whose most recent outing was the blockbuster Padmaavat, Mira is the daughter of Delhi-based businessman Vikramaditya Rajput and his wife Bela Rajput.

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput's marriage was an arranged one. Mira, born on September 7th, 1994, was 20, when she wed Shahid, who is 14 years her senior. They met at a religious function.
When Mira Rajput married Shahid Kapoor, many were doubtful whether she would be able to handle the stardom. But, Mira has impressed everyone by not only becoming a stylish star wife but also a superbly confident one at that.
Mira Rajput did her schooling at Vasant Valley School in Delhi. She has also done an internship in the United States. Mira is fond of music and plays the piano for which she took lessons at a young age.
Mira Rajput graduated from Delhi's prestigious Lady Shri Ram College with a degree in English Honours. Mira was good in studies and ranked tenth in the Delhi University's Common Admission Test in English.
Mira Rajput is quite close to her mother and father and two sisters, Priya Rajput Tulshan and Noorjehan Rajput Wadhwani. Mira is the youngest of the three siblings.
Mira Rajput keeps herself updated with the fashion world. She has graced the covers of several popular magazines. She has also did her first TV commercial for an anti-ageing cream, in which Mira's confidence was exemplary.
Mira Rajput possesses a love for shoes, something that she surpasses husband Shahid Kapoor in. Shahid has revealed in interviews that wife Mira is way too mature for her age and prefers to remain grounded.
It's interesting to note that Mira Rajput hasn't seen many of Shahid Kapoor's films before they married. In fact her favourite Bollywood actor is not Shahid but Salman Khan!
Mira Rajput also enjoys a close relationship with Shahid Kapoor's father Pankaj Kapur, mother Neelima Azim and younger brother Ishaan Khatter. She often shares her pictures with them on social media.

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput became proud parents to baby daughter Misha on August 26th, 2016. Misha's name is a portmanteau of Shahid and Mira's first names.
Mira Rajput keeps herself busy all the time, by devoting attention at her little girl and also makes sure to spend time with hubby Shahid.
Mira Rajput interacts with the media candidly just like hubby Shahid Kapoor. She answers their questions and openly discusses how motherhood has changed her.
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput shared this picture of daughter Misha, to announce Mira's second pregnancy. In the image, Misha is lying on a blackboard next to a drawing of balloons with the words 'Big Sister' written on top.
In an interview a few days ago, Shahid Kapoor told mid-day that he felt ready to embrace fatherhood again. Admitting to being a bundle of nerves during the birth of his first child in 2016, the actor reflected that Mira and he learnt valuable lessons while raising Misha. "It's completely different this time. I think we are calmer and more relaxed," he said, adding that he was "anxious" during his first brush with fatherhood. "Mira and I would be asking questions and having doubts. But this time around, we feel like veterans. We have done it once, so we can handle it this time around."
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcomed their second child, a baby boy on September 5, 2018. The duo has named their new-born Zain Kapoor.
Misha is now an elder sister! When Shahid Kapoor was asked if the couple has made a conscious effort of moulding Misha into the role of an elder sister, Kapoor said that they tried to make the change as organic as possible for their firstborn. "With a two-year-old, you can't tell them too much and at the same time, you can't surprise them completely. So we make subtle mentions because kids are really absorbent. They learn from looking at things around. She is aware of the change without us having had a conversation with her."
Here's congratulating Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor for their little bundle of joy!
