Congratulations Saif and Kareena!
The moment that everyone was waiting for has arrived. Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor, who remained active throughout her pregnancy, gave birth to a baby boy at the Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai on December 20, 2016. The new was confirmed by the proud father Saif Ali Khan.
The couple has also finalized the name of their new bundle of joy. Saif released a statement which said,
