Confirmed! Saif Ali Khan, Kareena expecting their first child in Dec

Bollywood star couple Saif Ali Khan and wife Kareena are expecting their first child, Saif confirmed on Saturday (July 2). Putting all speculations surrounding Kareena’s pregnancy, the ‘Phantom’ actor issued a statement saying that Kareena was indeed pregnant.

"My wife and I would like to announce that we are expecting our first child in December. We would like to thank our well-wishers for their blessings and support and also the press for their discretion and patience," the statement read.

Speculations were rife about the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress’ pregnancy after she was spotted wearing loose clothing when she and hubby returned from their London vacation recently. Some of her pictures were also flashed across media apparently showing the baby bump. Coinciding with the pregnancy reports, Kareena had also expressed her desire to start a family during an interview with a leading magazine.

However, when Kareena was quizzed about the pregnancy reports, she had neither confirmed nor denied it. "God willing hopefully. I am a woman. But right now there is nothing to say about it. The fact that you all are talking about it is making me super excited," the actress was quoted as saying.

Kareena and Saif tied the knot in 2012. This will be the couple’s first child, while Saif already has two kids – Sara and Ibrahim from his previous marriage with Amrita Singh. In fact, Sara will be soon making her debut in Bollywood.

On the work front, Kareena was last seen in ‘Udta Punjab’. She has been signed on for ‘Veere Di Wedding’, which also has Sonam Kapoor in lead role.

Saif will be next seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’ starring Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor, who is also expecting his first child with wife Mira Rajput. The movie will hit screens in February next year.
