Shahid and Mira Kapoor‘s daughter, as you know, is named Misha. The name is a combination of both their names, and it seems like they struggled for a while with picking the name they wanted for their kid. They eventually on this one just a few days before the baby was born, and it turns out it was Shahid’s idea.

Here’s what the actor told HT during a recent interview:

Honestly, we got desperate [for the name]. We didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl, and we never even tried to find out. That’s not allowed in India anyway. We just needed to come up with a good name, because, somehow, when you want to come up with a name, you don’t like any. And then you get really scared, because the date keeps getting closer.

He eventually thought of the name Misha:

And I asked Mira, ‘Is it nice? What do you think?’ She liked it instantly, and said it was very nice. All of this was happening five days before Misha was born.

Cute!
