It has been two days since Kareena Kapoor Khan had celebrated her 40th birthday with friends and family at her Mumbai residence but even till now, the pictures and videos just keep coming in. And no, we aren’t complaining! The Khans and Pataudis are on a celebratory roll as in the month of August, Kareena had announced her second pregnancy. The announcement was followed by the 50th birthday celebrations of Saif Ali Khan and a few days from then, the expecting mommy celebrated her 40th. Though the milestones in Saif and Kareena’s lives were significantly big, the couple had kept the celebrations to a low-key one at their home.

The celebrations had begun for Kareena Kapoor Khan’s 40th bash with the arrival of her star family including Randhir Kapoor, Babita, Karisma Kapoor and Samaira Kapoor on the birthday eve. Karisma had given the glimpses of the to-be mommy, flaunting her pregnancy glow in her favourite outfit, kaftan. But what caught everyone’s attention was Bebo’s ‘Fabulous at 40’ birthday cake, which featured two tiers and a fondant miniature of Kareena on top. Sharing the pictures on her social media handle, Karisma had written, “Birthday girl. We love you #happybirthday #fabulousatanyage.”
While Kareena Kapoor Khan had ringed in her birthday with her family by her side, she had ended it with another in-house bash with her friends in attendance. Kareena had cut a ‘Super Mom’ cake with a Wonder Woman logo on it. Kareena had looked stunning in a super-comfy beige coloured printed dress which she had accentuated with a gorgeous necklace, no-makeup and of course, her pregnancy glow and beautiful smile. An unseen video has emerged of Kareena apparently from the last year celebrations, wherein she can be seen holding two sparkling candles in her hand while grooving to Don’t Stop Me Now - Queen. Kareena looked gorgeous in her black dress and she perfectly defines the caption on the video, “40 and Fabulous.”
A day before she turned 40, Kareena Kapoor Khan had written a beautiful note to herself and had posted it with her solo black-and-white picture on Instagram. Bebo had written, "As I enter my 40th year... I want to sit back, reflect, love, laugh, forgive, forget and most importantly pray and thank the strongest force up there for giving me the strength and thank my experiences and decisions for making me the woman I am... Some right, some wrong, some great, some not so... but still, hey BIG 40 make it BIG."

Strong, empowered, free and full of love. And as your family expands and life becomes more full, may you continue to balance the passions of your life with grace. You make it look easy even though I know it can’t always be! Happy birthday to you @kareenakapoorkhan.” Soha’s husband, Kunal had posted an IG story to wish Bebo on her birthday.
