Kareena Kapoor Khan is gearing up to become a mother in December. The plan, according to close friends of Kareena and Saif, is to give birth to the baby in London, a city that the Pataudi family adores and treats almost like second home.
Says a source close to the family, “There are too many prying eyes in Mumbai to let Kareena go naturally into motherhood. The paparazzi is clicking close-ups of her baby bump and making her feel odd rather than special.”
In fact Kareena recently vented an outburst when she said, “I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty.”
This was clear indication of where she was heading.
London , according to the source close to the family, is where the Pataudi parivar spends the maximum time when away from India. Saif and Soha have both spent their formative years in the city and their mom Sharmila Tagore has very fond feelings for the city as her husband Nawab Pataudi loved to spend time in there. Sharmila too spends a good part of the year in London. She advised Kareena and Saif that London could be a quiter less stressful option for the couple to have its first child.”
