Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are finally parents! And we are so excited to share their happiness with you! Kareena gave birth to a baby boy at Breach Candy Hospital at 7.30 am on Tuesday morning. Both the mother and the baby are said to be doing fine.
Bebo broke many stereotypes during her pregnancy and we totally admire her for that! She walked the ramp, did promotions, shot for commercials, attended parties and awards... all of it with a baby bump. She is definitely not like other Bollywood actresses who go into hiding as soon as they turn pregnant.
So on the birth of Kareena Kapoor's little bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi (yes, that's what they have named the baby), let's look at the fantastic pregnancy journey of Kareena. So check out her best pictures and quotes from her pregnancy days...
I Do Have A Stomach And Am Big
"I do have a stomach and am big. But I have a child in there and I am carrying it proudly." Stressing that she saw no reason to sit at home and watch shows, she added, "I go to work and come back; I don't want to curl up and hide."
Won't Camouflage My Baby Bump, I'm Proud Of It
"Whichever role I do, I am not going to camouflage it on screen. I am proud of this phase (being pregnant) that I am in and there is nothing to hide about it. Whichever film I choose to do, you will see me the way I am.''
Pregnant, Not A Corpse
As soon as the news of her pregnancy came out, many thought that she would soon vanish from the movie scene and party circle for some time. But Kareena shut up her detractors by saying, "I'm pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It's the most normal thing on earth to produce a child."
Stop Making My Pregnancy A National Casualty
"Stop making it (my pregnancy) a national casualty. We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. I'm just fed up of people making it (pregnancy) a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career."
I Want My Child To Be Well Educated
"I do regret skipping education. I meet Saif and his friends, and I feel like we get stuck in this whole thing of movies and monies, without having anything else to fall back on. His family and friends are so well-read; some are Rhodes scholars, and most have studied at Oxford, Cambridge or Winchester. He is so particular about academics with his kids, Sara and Ibrahim as well, and I am happy that he will be so with this child too. I come from a family which has been obsessed with the movies, but as I have grown older, I have realized there is more to life than just that. Now I try to travel, meet different people, explore new things. And I want that for my child,'' she told a daily.
Pregnancy Is Not A Disease
"The most important thing is that pregnancy should not be looked upon as a disease of some kind. It's the most beautiful phenomenon that can happen to a woman. In fact it's a joy."
I Am A Girl Child, I'd Love To Have A Girl
"I am a girl child; I would love to have a girl, what is the difference? Probably I have done more for my parents than a son would.''
I Am Not Going To Hire 10 Bodyguards
"We don't have bodyguards and we don't believe in having them either. I am not going to hire 10 bodyguards just because my child will belong to a star family"
Why There's Such A Hue & Cry
"Wanting to become a mother was a natural course for me. I don't know why there's such a hue and cry about my pregnancy in the industry. It is the most natural phenomenon for all women."
This Is The Most Guarded Part Of My Life & I Haven't Asked For Anyone's Advice
''What annoys me is when people take the liberty to throw advice at you, tell you how life is going to change, and deliver spiels on what's morally right and wrong. This is the most guarded part of my life and I haven't even asked for anyone's advice. We're not even thinking of names or buying baby stuff. Saif and I want to go by what we feel at the moment. We didn't even sit down and decide this is how we wanted to take these nine months. He just told me to take care of myself, and respected my decision of continuing to work and be active."
Well, more power to you Kareena and our heartiest congratulations!
