New mom Ka­reena Kapoor Khan can’t stop gush­ing about son Taimur

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Saif Ali Khan’s phone prob­a­bly didn’t stop ring­ing when he changed his What­sApp pro­file pic­ture to that of his two-month-old son Taimur. He had an apt re­sponse when his wife, ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, asked him the rea­son for us­ing the baby’s pic on the chat ser­vice.

“I asked Saif, why did he put Taimur’s pic on What­sApp? He was like, ‘It’s okay. I can­not hide him for the whole life,’” said Ka­reena dur­ing a live Face­book chat with di­eti­cian Ru­juta Di­wekar about los­ing weight af­ter preg­nancy.

The stylish new mum couldn’t stop gush­ing about her in­fant: “He is the most gor­geous son, he is very good-look­ing, he has Pathan genes… as I had a lot of ghee [dur­ing preg­nancy], I went [the] con­ven­tional way.”

The ac­tor, who will re­sume shoot­ing in May, in­tends to give her lit­tle boy all the at­ten­tion he needs, even if it means tak­ing him along to the film shoots.

“Taimur is not alone — one par­ent is al­ways there with him. We’re al­ways go­ing to do the same. If not, then I’m strap­ping him on and go­ing for shoots and that’s amaz­ing. He (Taimur) is an in­te­gral part of us, he is part of Saif and me, he is born to us,” said Ka­reena.

About set­ting the trend of flaunt­ing her preg­nancy and not be­ing self-con­scious about the weight gain, Ka­reena said, “I’ve car­ried Taimur with lot of strength, en­ergy, joy. I put on 18kg and I flaunted it till the day I walked into the hos­pi­tal. I didn’t care. And I was pho­tographed from dif­fer­ent an­gles, my dou­ble chin was seen. My friends and fam­ily were like ‘You are [look­ing] preg­nant.’”

Fa­mous for her svelte fig­ure be­fore moth­er­hood, the star has started a spe­cial diet with Di­wekar to lose the post-preg­nancy weight.

“The process has started,” said Ka­reena.

“I wanted to do it. It’s about eat­ing the right food, walk­ing. I am very ded­i­cated. It’s im­por­tant. [The weight] is all com­ing off.”

Ac­tors are of­ten un­der the scan­ner for their weight gain and Ka­reena, too, was talked about on so­cial me­dia dur­ing her preg­nancy.

She said, “How can some­body say I’m over­weight? I want peo­ple to ac­cept me in every phase.”

I’ve car­ried Taimur with lot of strength, en­ergy, joy. I put on 18kg and I flaunted it till the day I walked into the hos­pi­tal. I didn’t care. KA­REENA KAPOOR, AC­TOR
