The actor had revealed on the sidelines of an awards show that the announcement was not planned. “I am very happy. We just felt like sharing it with everybody. Mira said she wanted to put it on Instagram, and I felt the photograph was really cute. So, it was a spontaneous decision and it just happened,” he had said.
Incidentally, it was during Mira’s first pregnancy that the couple fell in love. The two had an arranged marriage, and Shahid revealed on Karan Johar’s chat show, “I fell in love with her when she got pregnant. That is when you and I become us. It brings you closer in a special way.”
