Congratulations are in order for Bollywood power couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput. The couple welcomed a cute little baby girl on Friday evening in Mumbai

According to a leading newspaper, the baby girl was delivered at the Hinduja Healthcare Surgical hospital in Khar (Mumbai). The daughter was born of a normal delivery and weighs 2.8 kg. Dr. Kiran Coelho delivered the child in the evening at 7:56 pm.

A happy Shahid took to Twitter to announce the arrival of his little bundle of joy. This is what he tweeted:

Just yesterday there were news reports which stated that Shahid and Mira would be welcoming a baby earlier than expected as Mira had to be rushed to the hospital on Thursday evening. There was also picture of a frantic Pankaj Kapoor and Supriya Pathak flocking at the hospital after Mira was admitted there. However, all is well that ends well and we're so happy that Mira and Shahid have welcomed their baby girl, albeit a little early.

Two days back the excited father-to-be took to Instagram yesterday to post an adorable picture of wife Mira and her cute little baby bump. It is visible that the Udta Punjaab actor is desperately awaiting the arrival of his bundle of joy.

Shahid's excitement has also been clearly evident in his media interactions and the actor had stated that he would be taking a full-fledged paternity leave.

“I am taking a full-fledged paternity leave. I was almost 14 when my brother (Ishaan) was born. I was grown up enough to know what my mother went through during her pregnancy. So, I want to be around Mira,” said an excited Shahid in an interview last month.

From accompanying him during hospital visits to making the house baby proof, Shahid has been quite the doting husband and has been by his wife's side throughout her pregnancy, despite his busy schedule.

Soon after the good news spread like wild fire and Bollywood actors started congratulating Shahid on Twitter including Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh.
