Actor Shahid Kapoor has stated that he's going to take a month's break from filming to spend quality time with his wife Mira Rajput and their newborn daughter. The actor became father to a baby girl on 26 August and has made it clear that he's only going to resume to work from October.

Meanwhile, the entire Kapoor clan is rejoicing the arrival of the newborn and is waiting to bring the baby and the mother back home.

Shahid's mother, Neelima Azeem, had a special something to say about her son and her granddaughter. Talking about how Shahid is being a fantastic new dad, an ecstatic Neelima told a leading daily:

"His baby is my firstborn's firstborn and the first grandchild in the family. I wanted a granddaughter. I am on top of the world. We would have been happy to have either a boy or a girl. But as I have two sons, I wanted it to be a girl. Bachchi ke kadam ghar mein pade hai, main bahut khush hoon (a girl child has come into our home, and I am very happy). We are all so blessed with God almighty's kindness. We are all very joyous. While some men might shy away or hesitate to hold babies, he is very good. He is like a pro, a veteran. He has been taking care of his Mira very well. He makes a great husband and a wonderful dad."

Such a bundle of joy the baby is!
