Mumbai: After months of speculations and denial, the couple has finally gone official with the big news. As per Saif, they are expecting their first child in December this year and the actor has thanked his well-wishers for their blessings and the press for showing discretion and patience.
"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," Saif, 45, said in a statement here.
Gossip mills were abuzz about the stork visiting the couple when Kareena, 35, and Saif recently went to London.
Also some of her pictures were flashed across media apparently showing the baby bump.
While this is the first time that Saif talked about the pregnancy, Kareena has been fielding the question for some time now. In June, she said in an interview, “God willing hopefully. I am a woman. But right now there is nothing to say about it.”
She further jokingly added, “The fact that you all are talking about it is making me super excited. I have five hidden children in London!”
Saif was earlier married to actress Amrita Singh and has two children -- daughter Sara and son Ibrahim.
Saif, son of Tiger Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore, tied the knot with Kareena in October 2012 after a five-year courtship.
