It was on December 20, 2016, when the most followed pregnancy of B-town diva, Kareena Kapoor Khan had ended with the birth of her little munchkin, Taimur Ali Khan. Surpassing the stardom of his parents, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Taimur had become everyone's favourite. Blessed with the genes of Kapoors' and Pataudis', Taimur has become everyone's sweetheart.
It feels like yesterday when Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan had posed for the paparazzi at the balcony of their residence at Fortune Heights, holding their then-newborn bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan. Since then, baby Tim has been spreading joy and brightening up our lives with just one glimpse.
On Taimur's 5th birthday, let's take a look at some unseen pictures of him shared by his mother, Kareena Kapoor Khan, in her book, KAREENA KAPOOR KHAN'S PREGNANCY BIBLE: The ultimate manual for moms-to-be. The pictures featured beautiful memories of Taimur with his parents. Out of all the photos, one that stole our hearts was of the doting father, Saif Ali Khan adorably holding a few days old baby Tim in his arms.
It was a few months after the birth of Taimur Ali Khan when the media had got an adorable picture of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan's little bundle of joy. A picture of Taimur had gone viral back then, which was a close-up shot of chhote Nawab, and it had melted our hearts in split seconds. While people had wondered if the picture that had gone viral was of Taimur only or a fake one, SpotboyE had contacted Saif to clarify the same. Saif had confirmed that the picture was of his little bundle of joy, Taimur.
When Kareena Kapoor Khan had made her Instagram debut in 2020, we couldn’t be happier. And the cherry on the cake was when Kareena had promised her fans that “of course, there will be once in a while a picture of Taimur." And keeping her promise, Kareena had posted a beautiful frame-worthy monochrome picture of Taimur. Introducing her munchkin, Taimur, on her official Instagram handle, Bebo had left us in awe with the picture as well as its sweetest caption. She had written:
"The only one I will ever allow to steal my frame."
In a promotional video, when Saif and Kareena were asked, “What was it like to hold your baby for the first time?” while she had said, “Even though I carried him for nine months, I think every mother experiences this. I just felt extremely surreal”, he had remarked, “I think we cannot describe it in words.”
From the day Taimur was born, he had stormed the internet and had become a social media sensation overnight. But it was his name that had created a lot of stir on social media. Soon after the star parents had announced the name of their baby boy, netizens had started questioning the origin of his name as ‘Taimur’ was a historical name of a Persian emperor, who had invaded India in 1398.
At an interactive session on India Today Conclave in 2018, Kareena Kapoor Khan had shared why she had chosen the name Taimur. The gorgeous actress had stated that the night before her delivery, Saif had asked her whether she wanted to change the name Taimur and keep a more poetic name like Faiz. To which Kareena had given a surprising response and had said:
"I was like no, 'If it is a boy, my son is going to be a fighter, he will be called 'Taimur'. Taimur means iron, and I will produce (an) ironman. I am proud to have named him Taimur."
On February 21, 2021, Taimur was promoted to a big brother with the arrival of Kareena and Saif's second child, Jehangir Ali Khan.
Bollywood's stunning couple, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are proud parents to two cute munchkins, Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan. A single glimpse of the adorable family is enough to make their fans go gaga over them. The doting mommy, Kareena also often shares cutesy glimpses with her babiesRead More
