So, the question of the hour is, what could be the possible reason that the adorable newborn has been named as Zain?


As per a recent report, actress Neelima Azeem (Shahid’s mother) expressed her joy, and shared her happiness, she said:

“It’s wonderful. Shahid and Mira are complete. I am in the best phase of my life. Misha has been the love of my life ever since she was born. And now, Zain joins her. He is a beautiful child. We all have toiled very hard in our lives and now just reaping happiness. God has been kind”.



She added:

“I had a very strong feeling that they will get a son, this time. I had even shared it with them. I kind of saw a son in their arms in one of my dreams.”


Opening up about the name Zain the actress further mentioned:

“Mira and Shahid decided it mutually. At the time of Misha’s birth, Zain was decided. It was that it will be Misha if it is a girl (combination of Mira and Sasha) and if it is a boy, it will be Zain. Long back I had shared the name with Zain. I had told Shahid that I love 4 names- Shahid, Ishaan, Zain and Kaamraan.”



Shahid had earlier shared his excitement and the name of the adorable baby boy via his official Twitter handle:



For those who don’t know, Zain was born at the Hinduja Hospital which is in Mumbai on September 5. The duo welcomed Zain home on September 7.

As a treat, take a look at some of the pictures of the family. Trust me, you’ll go “Awww”.
