Since Kareena Kapoor Khan's pregnancy and the birth of the child, Taimur Ali Khan, who became a sensation the moment he came into this world, were the most-talked-about topics of 2016, the following year was all about his first birthday celebrations and the expensive gifts he was showered with. Kareena and Saif Ali Khan had celebrated Taimur's first birthday at the Pataudi Palace and were joined by Sharmila Tagore, Babita, Saba Ali Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Samaira Kapur and Kiaan Raj Kapoor. From cosy bonfire nights, horse-riding sessions, tractor rides to a colourful play area, Taimur's first birthday was a grand one.
A few days ago, we had shared with you some unseen pictures from Taimur Ali Khan's first birthday celebrations which were originally posted by Karan Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan's chacha, in 2017. Being a renowned photographer, he had posted some beautiful black-and-white pictures of chhote Nawab, which were a visual treat and they have just added to the charm of monochrome photographs. The pictures have captured the different moods of Taimur as he was enjoying his special day. Karisma Kapoor had also posted a pre-birthday celebration picture from Taimur's special day, back in 2017, and it had featured her with Karan, Kareena, Saif, Zahan Kapoor. She had captioned the post as "#family #bondingtime#chillyevenings #pataudidiaries."
Now, Saif Ali Khan's sister, Saba Ali Khan posted two unseen candid pictures of her nephew, Taimur Ali Khan from his first birthday celebrations. In the first picture, which is Saba's favourite one, Taimur can be seen peeking out of his toy tent and in the second photo, he gurgled with laughter while enjoying in the play zone. For the celebrations, Taimur had begun his day in a pristine white Ralph Lauren shirt and jeans, but later switched up his look after cutting his birthday cake to a baby pink kurta, paired with an ivory Nehru jacket.
In 2020, when Taimur Ali Khan had turned four, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan had hosted an Avengers-themed bash for their little bundle of joy, with the balloons that had the faces of his favourite Marvel characters. For Taimur's love for animals, his birthday cake was shaped like a horseshoe. For the birthday bash, baby Tim was dressed in a black printed t-shirt and a pair of blue denim. Kareena had flaunted her pregnancy glow in a bright yellow ensemble and Saif kept it simple and elegant in a blue and white kurta-pyjama.
Taimur Ali Khan's special day had begun with lovely wishes from his family but the best one had come from his amma, Kareena Kapoor Khan. She had posted a video, comprised of some priceless memories of her little Tim. Kareena had captioned her post as "My child... I'm happy at four you have such determination, dedication and focus on what you want to do... which is now picking up the haystack and feeding the cow... God bless you my hardworking boy... but on the way, don’t forget to taste the snow, pluck flowers, jump up and down, climb trees and ofcourse eat all your cake... Chase your dreams and keep your chin up my boy... but above all else... do everything in your life that makes you smile. No one can or ever will love you more than your Amma. Happy Birthday Son... My Tim."
The memories are still fresh in our minds when Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan had posed for the paparazzi at the balcony of their residence at Fortune Heights, holding their newborn bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan. Since then, baby Tim has been spreading joy and brightening up our lives with just his one glimpse. 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."
Thank you, Saba for sharing such adorable clicks of Taimur!
