This puts to rest the rumours surrounding the news after months of speculation and denial. Previously Kareena had denied the reports saying “God willing, hopefully soon. But right now there’s nothing to say.”
She further jokingly added, “The fact that you all are talking about it is making me super excited. I have five hidden children in London!”
Now her husband and Bollywood actor Saif has confirmed the news himself. He thanked his fans and well-wishers for their blessings and requested privacy and discretion from the media.
“My wife and I would like to announce that we are expecting our first child in December. We would like to thank our well wishers for their blessings and support and also the press for their discretion and patience,” he said.
This will be Kareena’s first child and Saif’s third. He has two children from his earlier marriage from Amrita Singh which includes a daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan. The couple tied the knot in 2012 after a five-year relationship.
Kareena Kappoor has previously said that she has no ambitions to work in Hollywood unlike other actresses such as Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone.
She said that she has different priorities and is more satisfied and content as a married working women. While appreciating the amazing work which Priyanka has done, Kareena thinks she doesn’t think that she could ever do anything like her. She earlier expressed a desire to start a family.
However, her father Randhir Kapoor while speaking on the issue said that “Well, they have not told me yet, so I have no clue. But I hope it is true. It is high time that they had a baby,” he had told an entertainment website last month.
It is also reported that Kareena will not be a part of the next franchise of the popular comedy film franchise, Golmaal. Director Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgan are said to have patched their differences and starting working on Golmaal 4 but Kareena has been dropped from the sequel.
Kareena has been part of Udta Punjab and Ki and Ka this year. The good news is she will continue shooting for her upcoming film Veere di Wedding which also stars Sonam Kapoor. The shooting will start in August and the schedule has been confirmed by producers Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor.
“Ekta Kapoor and I, with our families and companies, are delighted and excited for Kareena and Saif! As producers of Veere Di Wedding we are thrilled to be part of their special journey!
Rhea said that Kareena is a thorough professional and they are proud to work with her. She said that the spirit of the film also celebrated the modern girl.
