Kareena Kapoor Khan, the mother of two, opened up about her pregnancy journey in her book titled The Pregnancy Bible. In the book, husband Saif Ali Khan had a guest column where he spoke about the changes he saw in Kareena during both the pregnancy. He said that she transformed into another person after the birth of their second son, Jehangir.
Saif said that Kareena was wary of certain things after the birth of their first son, Taimur. He wrote that Bebo didn’t know how to pick him and so he was the one to carry him around him more. However, he said that she is more maternal this time around with Jeh.
“I have seen Kareena grow from a highly-strung woman (which is good for the job) to a grounded and mature woman. And she has changed as a mother too through her two pregnancies. When she had Taimur, she was wary of certain things,” he wrote in the book.
“She didn’t know how to pick him up, to soothe him. I carried him more and am still very connected with him, though he is very close to his mom. With Jeh, Kareena is very different, more maternal. She holds Jeh, calms him, distracts him – she does everything she found hard the first time. It’s almost like she’s become another person. I suppose the lesson is to be patient with yourself,” he added.
Kareena also admitted in the book that she was not perfect during Taimur’s time as it was her first time. “There is joy in messing up. I didn’t know how to clean Taimur’s poop or put on his diaper properly in the beginning. His pee leaked so often because his mother didn’t secure his diaper perfectly. But here is some advice — mother to mother: it’s about you and your comfort; do what is easy, do what works. When a mother is confident and comfortable, the baby senses it too. It’s why I returned to work so quickly,” she wrote.
