Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan became parents for the second time to son Jeh Ali Khan in February this year. Kareena in a recent interview revealed that she had a ‘fleeting thought’ about going for surrogacy before her pregnancy with Jeh. She also said that Saif was ‘very clear’ about doing it the right way.

In a conversation with HT Brunch, Kareena said, “I was like ‘should we do that? Should we do surrogacy’? And, Saif’s instant reaction was ‘If we can have children, why not try and do it ourselves’? And, if that is the way God wants it (it may happen). It (surrogacy) was just like a fleeting thought. But he (Saif) was very clear, like ‘let us do it the right way and see if it happens’. Sure enough, that is how it happened. And, carrying both my children have been the greatest joy for me as well.”

The Good Newwz actress added, “I am happy I have experienced it (pregnancy) with both the boys. I actually enjoyed it all. I was one actor who actually did not give a damn. My face was bloated, my feet were bloated. I was all over the place. The best part is that my brands and a lot of people I work with did not really care about that. Having two children, it should not matter any size that you are.”

Kareena Kapoor recently donned the hat of an author for the first time and released her book titled Pregnancy Bible wherein she talks about both her pregnancies – with Taimur Ali Khan and Jeh. As per a Pinkvilla report, Saif’s excerpt from the book read: “Things are pressured for a female actor in our industry. How you look is often everything! When we first began our relationship, she was at size zero, shopping in the kids’ section of stores because those were the only things that would fit her. She was doing super well for herself with work and her appearance played a big part in it.”

He added, “Pregnancies take their toll on your body; it takes you a while to return to shape. Kareena was worried about these things. When we first talked about having children, she even briefly wondered if she should consider a surrogate. But she then realised that everything in life needs your 100 per cent. Once she had made up her mind, she was all in.”

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are parents to two boys, Taimur and Jeh. The couple welcomed Taimur in 2016 and their second child, Jeh, was born in February this year.
