Saif Ali Khan is a proud father of Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan (from his ex-wife, Amrita Singh) and Taimur Ali Khan and the newborn son (with Kareena Kapoor Khan). In an interview with Pinkvilla, Kareena had revealed that Saif loves all three of them deeply, and Taimur resembles a lot with Sara in her childhood pictures. Revealing one common thing in the three of them, Kareena had shared that it is a beautiful connection that Sara, Ibrahim and Taimur have ‘Pataudi eyes’. Kareena had also said that Saif had told her about Ibrahim’s childhood and he was a peaceful child, who would be okay if one would give him a potato chip. However, she had shared that Sara and Taimur are the feisty ones. Bebo had said, “Sara is feisty and beautiful and Taimur, I feel, is a lot like Saif also. He has that slight ‘kabhi kabhi toh thoda twist ho jata hai dimaag and I’m like ‘oh my god’.” We wonder if the youngest one too has Pataudi eyes or not!
