It was way back in 2008 when Saif Ali Khan had Dil Haara to his Tashan co-star, Kareena Kapoor and then began the fairy tale romance of #Saifeena, which became an inspiration to every couple out there. After dating for more than three years, Saif and Kareena had tied the knot on October 16, 2012, and had embraced parenthood with the arrival of their little prince, Taimur Ali Khan on December 20, 2016. Since their dating phase to their married life and finally their parenthood phase with Taimur, Saif and Kareena never failed to make the headlines and their little bundle of joy has crossed the stardom of his star family with his cuteness.
It was Saif Ali Khan's sweet gesture of love for Kareena Kapoor when they were dating, that had given major goals. Saif's decision of getting Kareena's name in Hindi inked on his forearm was a spontaneous one. Now, that Saif and Kareena's son, Taimur Ali Khan is more than three-year-old, he has started to understand things and is curious about everything around him. So, when the little one noticed the tattoo on his father's arm, he asks him what is it. In an interview with Brides Today, Kareena had revealed Taimur's reaction and had said, “He has done lots of romantic things. I think the most romantic thing is when my son points at it now and asks. Like, he is all the time looking at that tattoo. And Saif is like, 'This is your amma's name'. And he (Taimur) keeps wondering like, 'What is he saying?' I think that's a special moment for me."
Recalling the spontaneous decision of getting his ladylove, Kareena Kapoor's name tattooed on his forearm, Saif Ali Khan had said in a media interview in 2009, “We were in the car one afternoon in Bandra, talking about David Beckham. I don't know why I brought him up. And then the tattoo came up, and I said, ‘Maybe I should get one on my shoulder, would it look cool?' And [Kareena] said, ‘Why shoulder? Put it on your arm.' I thought, ‘Maybe a nice K?' and she said, ‘That's a bit ambiguous.'” (Also Read: Chahatt Khanna Finally Removes Her Ex-Husband, Farhan's Name Tattoo, Revamps And Flaunts The New One)

And as Kareena had promised, “of course, there will be once in a while a picture of Taimur", she posts his pictures too.
