Weeks of speculation drew to a close on Tuesday, when Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan announced the birth of their baby boy, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.
While they remained elusive to the media, the new parents issued a statement that read, “We are very pleased to share with you all the wonderful news about the birth of our son: Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, on the 20th of December 2016.
We would like to thank the media for the understanding and support they have given us over the last 9 months, and of course especially our fans and well-wishers for their continued affection. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all... With love, Saif & Kareena”
According to sources close to the couple, Kareena delivered the baby at 7.30 am at Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital. Saif’s sister and the new aunt, Soha Ali Khan said, “We are delighted. Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is a beautiful baby boy. Both mother and son are doing well!”
Meanwhile Karan Johar took to Twitter to congratulate the couple. He said, “My Bebo had a baby boy!!!!!!! Am so so happy!!!!!!! #TaimurAliKhan. (sic),”
Kareena seems to have proved to the world that pregnancy and being a professional can be balanced.
All through her pregnancy, she has worked hard and partied even harder. In fact, on Sunday night, she was spotted partying at her friend Dianne Pandey’s 48th birthday; and early Tuesday, the news of the baby was already out.
Kareena also posed for selfies with her granddad’s friend Simi Garewal, who had paid them a special visit. The true professional that Kareena is, people are eager to see how long she will take to get back to her sexy, shapely self. Our guess is as good as yours.
Twitteratis Troll Taimur
Taimur the invader?
Kareena and Saif’s son is hardly a few hours old, but the baby has already had a hashtag trending after him, #TaimurAliKhan, and has even brought out the trolls online. Here’s how Twitterati reacted.
Shashanl Shekhar@sharky1983: #KareenaKapoor though it does not interest me anyways , but naming the kid after a invader, good job, proves stupidity knows no bound.
Kapil Yadav @bkapilyadav: Seriously ???
#KareenaKapoor named her child Taimur Ali Khan after a plunderer Taimur The Lame who killed 17 million ppl in central Asia
Aima @_AimA_: #TaimurAliKhan What kind of people name their children after nomadic invaders? Does anyone name children as Hitler in Poland?
Yusra Askari @YusraSAskari: If my TL’s to be believed,Taimur isn’t historically appropriate choice of name for a new born across the border....
