Soon after, saif also issued a statement mentioning the baby’s name.
“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,” the statement read.
A picture of the newborn is yet to arrive.
Kareena broke all the Bollywood stereotypes and turned out to be an inspiration for all mommies-to be. She walked the ramp, did photo shoots and all that any actors does in her life on a usual basis.
She was recently seen celebrating an early Christmas with her sister Karisma and friends Malaika and Amrita Arora as her due date was fast approaching.
Saif, who was married to Amrita Singh earlier, has two children- Sarah and Ibrahim- with the actress.
