An official statement released by the couple to the media on Wednesday has confirmed the news. “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family!! Thank you to all our well-wishers for all their love and support. Saif and Kareena,” the ‘Tashan’ actors were quoted as saying.
The stars who fell in love during the filming of ‘Tashan’ tied the knot in October 2012 after a five-year courtship. They had their first child, son Taimur, on December 20, 2016.
Taimur, who has often been spotted with his parents, can be considered a mini-celeb himself. Apart from being snapped by lensmen when he steps out, escorted, there have also been multiple memes and GIFs themed around the toddler. Kareena, who joined Instagram last year, also keeps posting updates about her ‘boys’.
Congratulatory messages poured in for the couple on social media. Khan’s sister Soha posted a picture terming the ‘Omkara’ actor, ‘The Quadfather’.
Kapoor’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’ producer Rhea Kapoor also congratulated the couple.

Riddhima Kapoor Sahani also took to the photo-sharing app to congratulate her cousin and brother-in-law. Sharing the Story on her profile, Kareena thanked her ‘sista’.

The 49-year-old Chhote Nawab as Saif is called, has two children – Sara and Ibrahim – from an earlier marriage to actress Amrita Singh. Sara has been seen in a few filmy outings, and is known to share an easy rapport with Kareena.

On the professional front, Saif was last seen in a cameo in ‘Dil Bechara’, while Kareena Kapoor had started shooting for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ alongside Aamir Khan, before production was halted due to the pandemic. The film is a remake of Tom Hanks’s ‘Forrest Gump‘.
Elon’s ‘Musk’-eteer, Hasan’s ‘Mini Minhaj’ & Baby Boris: Here Are All The Kids Born During …
If there’s anything that attracts public attention more than politicians and sports stars, it’s their babies. The world is on the edge, thanks to the Covid-19 crisis and the global population is in dire need for a ray of hope.
However, well-known personalities like UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, tech mogul Elon Musk were blessed with a bundle of joy in these trying times and became parents to a newborn in the middle of the pandemic.
Here’s a look at all the famous babies born during corona crisis.
Baby Boris, or perhaps we should call him by his full name, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, was welcomed into the world by his parents, Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds, last month. While it’s the first child for the couple, the UK Prime Minister is already a father to five.
The news came a few weeks after Johnson was released from hospital following treatment for Covid-19. In fact, Symonds’ posted that their baby boy’s middle name was in honour of the two doctors that saved Johnson’s life, saying: “Nicholas after Dr Nick Price and Dr Nick Hart – the two doctors that saved Boris’ life last month.”
Well, we could try to call Elon Musk’s latest addition to his family with his girlfriend Grimes, by his full name but we wouldn’t know where to start. Spelt, but pronounced ‘X Ash A 12’.
“The X is just “X” and the A-12 is just “A 12,”” revealed Musk in a podcast. The parents also added that the A-12 part of their son’s name was partially based on the Archangel-12, the precursor to their favorite aircraft, the SR-71. The baby is the first for the couple and joins Musk’s brood of five boys.
While the Indian cricketer may be taking a forced hiatus from sports, there’s one thing he has to double up on: daddy duties. Suresh Raina and his wife Priyanka welcomed their second child, a baby boy, during lockdown.
The star shared a photo of himself with his wife and the newborn, who they are naming Rio, and added, “The beginning of all things wonder, hope, possibilities and a better world!”
Hasan Minhaj probably summed up the arrival of his little one during a pandemic perfectly. As he and his wife Beena Patel welcomed their baby boy in April, Minhaj posted, “Even in these crazy times there are so many beautiful moments.”
The proud couple are already parents to a daughter and hinted that this may be the last little Minhaj to join their gang. But, you never know, added Minhaj before saying, “The Minhaj family grows, and according to Beena it’s done growing. But ya never know, shooters shoot.”
