Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor are going to be parents for the second time. Their first born, Misha, turns two on August 26 this year. The news came as a pleasant surprise. After all, cuteness runs in the family, and Misha is proof of it.
Mira's recent story on her Instagram got me thinking about the struggles of pregnancy. Suddenly, it felt too real too fast. Especially given that Mira's my age, on her way to a second baby while I'm sitting in my chair thinking about where things are going between me and my boyfriend!
I legit cry when I can't fit into my old jeans so I can only imagine what a fashion fix Mira is going through.
