We have often heard from women in the entertainment industry that becoming a mother, takes away the limelight. But Kareena has redefined motherhood and her career by being a yummy mummy, everyone wants to work with. The actress has reinforced the belief that a happy mom is equal to a happy baby. And if you find happiness in your work, then go for it.
Recently, Kareena became the guest of honour at The Love Laugh Live Show, wherein she got candid about her son, Taimur Ali Khan. She revealed the sweetest thing he says while she leaves for work. She shared, "He says the sweetest thing every day when I have to go to work. 'Amma, don't go.' It just breaks your heart. Sometimes, I just have to slip out without saying bye to him."
She further revealed the reason of her son, calling her 'amma', "He can call me whatever he wants. But it's just that Saif and his siblings called their mother (Sharmila Tagore) 'Amma' and their father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) 'Abba', so it's just like a thing now."
In a 2018 interview with Filmfare, Kareena had shared how she is striking the balance between her work and her family. She had stated, "I was working through my pregnancy. Then five and a half months after my delivery, I began working on Veere Di Wedding. I took Taimur to Delhi for the shoot. I’m lucky to have an understanding husband who said, ‘I appreciate the fact that you want to continue your dream’. That’s the most important thing in a marriage."
She had further added, "I had support from my family. I had a lot of help. I had support from my sister (Karisma Kapoor) and of course most importantly, Saif. He comes from a family where his mother was working, his sister is working. It was easy for him to understand that I would take Taimur with me if I had to for a shoot. Absolutely 100 marks to Anil Kapoor and Rhea for being such fantastic producers. Taimur was so well looked after. I’ll always consider them as family. I couldn’t have asked for a better film to do after Taimur. And Taimur, of course, settled so beautifully in Delhi while I shot. He’s a happy trooper. Touchwood!"
Kareena had also revealed how she had handled the pressure of motherhood, "We women somehow know how to multitask. I’m enjoying every minute of it. I’m balancing it well. My time with my child is my time. I don’t need to flaunt it on Instagram. I don’t need to flaunt it in front of the media. Like I don’t need to carry my child at the airport to prove how much I love him. My husband too believes it’s not needed. By carrying the child in my arms I don’t need to prove that I’m a hands-on mother. Even if I have two hours with Saif, Taimur and myself in the bedroom, it’s the quality of time and wanting to be together that matters, rather than the quantity of time we spend. I come from that school of parenting." (Don't Miss: Suhana Khan's Uncanny Resemblance With Gauri Khan As The Mother-Daughter Duo Twin In Blue Outfits)
Well, Taimur is definitely one of the cutest kids in B-town!
