Mira Rajput is pregnant and this is what Shahid Kapoor’s mom Neelima Azeem thinks…

Shahid not just kept the news under the wraps from his fans, but also his family members for quite some time. If his mother Neelima Azeem is to be believed, she had sensed it long before his son broke the news about Mira’s pregnancy.

In an interview to DNA, the actor said, “Shahid had told me at the right time, but I guessed it much earlier. Call it a mother’s intuition or sixth sense, but I was pretty sure Mira was expecting earlier. I was extremely happy when Shahid confirmed what I was thinking.”

A close friend of the couple had earlier revealed that Mira is in her third trimester and the baby is said to be expected in late September or early October. Reportedly, Shahid’s ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor Khan was the first one to know about Mira’s pregnancy.

The news of becoming a grandmother has left Azeem thrilled. “It’s a great feeling becoming a grandmother and very difficult to express in words. We are all feeling so thrilled, excited and yet emotional… It’s a happy time for us all,” she added.

When the 56-year-old actor is happy that her son with soon become a father. In fact, when asked what she thought of Shahid as a father, she said,  “He will make a wonderful one — the world’s best dad!”
