    Kareena-Saif expecting second child; Soha Ali Khan, Riddhima Kapoor Sahani congratulate couple

    Synopsis

    The couple confirmed the news in a joint statement.

    The couple, in the statement, thanked well-wishers for their love and support.
    There's a visit due from the stork in the Pataudi household. Actor-couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are expecting their second child.

    An official statement released by the couple to the media on Wednesday has confirmed the news. “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family!! Thank you to all our well-wishers for all their love and support. Saif and Kareena,” the 'Tashan' actors were quoted as saying.

    The stars who fell in love during the filming of 'Tashan' tied the knot in October 2012 after a five-year courtship. They had their first child, son Taimur, on December 20, 2016.

    Taimur, who has often been spotted with his parents, can be considered a mini-celeb himself. Apart from being snapped by lensmen when he steps out, escorted, there have also been multiple memes and GIFs themed around the toddler. Kareena, who joined Instagram last year, also keeps posting updates about her 'boys'.


    Congratulatory messages poured in for the couple on social media. Khan's sister Soha posted a picture terming the 'Omkara' actor, 'The Quadfather'.


    Kapoor's 'Veere Di Wedding' producer Rhea Kapoor also congratulated the couple.

    The 49-year-old Chhote Nawab as Saif is called, has two children - Sara and Ibrahim - from an earlier marriage to actress Amrita Singh. Sara has been seen in a few filmy outings, and is known to share an easy rapport with Kareena.

    On the professional front, Saif was last seen in a cameo in 'Dil Bechara', while Kareena Kapoor had started shooting for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ alongside Aamir Khan, before production was halted due to the pandemic. The film is a remake of Tom Hanks's ‘Forrest Gump'.
