Bollywood couple Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan were blessed with a baby boy on Tuesday.
According to sources, Kareena delivered the baby in the morning today at the Breach Candy Hospital, in south Mumbai. The entire Khan and Kapoor families were with Kareena moments before she was taken for delivery.
Both the actress and the baby are reported to be in good health.
“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,” Saif and Kareena said in a statement.
A few weeks back, there was speculation that the couple were planning to call their baby Saifeena. The rumour started after Kareena had joked about it during a television show. “He finds it really funny. He says we’ll name our child Saifeena,” she had said.
Following the comment, Saif had to issue a statement to put an end to the speculation.
While it is the first child for the 36-year-old actress, Saif already has two kids Sara and Ibrahim with ex-wife Amrita Singh.
Kareena was lauded by the industry and others for fulfilling her professional commitments during pregnancy.
The actress, who is a workaholic, was even seen posing for magazine covers, walking the ramp, hanging out with her friends until a few weeks back.
“We are very happy. The baby is fine and so is Kareena. All of us are absolutely delighted,” Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor told a leading daily following the birth.
