When Kareena Kapoor Khan gave birth to Taimur Ali Khan, the Indian media and paps collectively lost their minds. Taimur quickly became a media favourite, a veritable celebrity who garnered the most likes, clicks and retweets on social media.
There were (and are) fan pages dedicated to the Pataudi scion along with a range of toys that have attracted ire from his mother, Kareena Kapoor Khan.
In the midst of the national lockdown in August 2020, the Jab We Met actress and her nawab husband announced that they were pregnant with baby number two.
This news followed Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s announcement that they were too expecting a baby. Sharma gave birth in January and requested the media to give her and her family some privacy and the paps seem to have complied.
Now, over the weekend, Kapoor Khan has also given birth to a baby boy. The news was met with much joy and mirth on social media.

In a press statement, Saif Ali Khan said: “We have been blessed with a baby boy. Mom and baby are safe and healthy. Thank you to our well-wishers for their love and support.”
Pictures of the Kapoor family and young Taimur visiting the baby went viral on social media. The couple hasn’t announced the baby’s name or shared his pictures yet. It remains to be seen if the couple will go the Virushka way and request privacy or if the baby will become a media favourite like Taimur.
