Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan issued a statement on Saturday confirming that he and his wife actress Kareena Kapoor are expecting their first child.
“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,” read a statement on Saif’s behalf.
Last month, certain sections of the press reported that Kareena was pregnant. When Kareena was asked whether the reports were true, she said: “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.”
Saif Ali Khan, 45, married Kareena Kapoor, 35, in 2012.
With Kareena, Saif has made films like Tashan, Agent Vinod and Kurbaan. Saif was last seen in 2015’s Phantom and will be seen next in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon.
Kareena was last seen in Udta Punjab, which released on June 17.
