Among these uncertain times, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan had brought a smile to everyone's face by announcing their second baby's birth. Kareena Kapoor Khan had given birth to a baby boy on February 21, 2021. We had spotted Taimur, Saif, Karisma, Randhir ji and Babita ji outside the hospital as they had gone to meet the newborn baby and mommy, Kareena. 

As per reports in SpotboyE, Saif Ali Khan feels it is very unsafe to shoot and complete his upcoming movie, Bunty Aur Babli during the times of COVID-19. The reason the actor has taken paternity leave is to protect his baby from infection. Also, according to SpotboyE, a source from the Government informs, "It is now felt that the decision to re-open cinemas and resume shooting was premature. We should have waited until next year when the COVID situation would be clearer. Shooting at the moment is not safe."

In an interview with the Times Of India, Taimur Ali Khan's nanu, Randhir Kapoor had revealed his reaction to becoming a big brother, and had said, "Oh! He's delighted. He is very happy about having a little brother. In fact, even Saif is excited. He is very happy, so is my daughter, and I just bless them all from the core of my heart." Talking about his feelings on becoming a grandfather once again, Randhir ji had said, "Both Kareena and the baby are doing well. I have not seen my grandson yet but I have spoken to Kareena and she's told me she's alright, and the baby is healthy, too. I am very happy, in fact, over the moon to become a grandfather again. I am eager to see the little one. I am already praying for his well-being.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Is Excited To Meet Taimur Ali Khan's Newborn Baby Brother, Congratulates Kareena And Saif)
