Kareena Kapoor and Soha Ali Khan welcomed their respective babies, Taimur Ali Khan & Inaya Naumi Kemmu within a gap of nearly 9 months. We guess the conversations in the family now revolve around the 2 little babies who will grow up together.
Throughout her pregnancy, Soha was working on her book, The Perils Of Being Moderately Famous, which chronicles her life from childhood to motherhood. (It’s a great read, might I add!) Out of the many interesting anecdotes that Soha shared from her life, she revealed one from her early pregnancy days. The mommy-to-be had not yet revealed the good news to Saif & Kareena, until one day when she woke up to a message from the latter saying that she had a dream about her (Soha’s) pregnancy.
In fact a spooky thing happened the other day, which prompted us to spill the beans to Bhai and Kareena. I woke up to a text message from her which said, “I had a dream that you’re pregnant. Please check. WEIRD.” I poked Kunal in the ribs to wake him up so he could read it too. “Maybe she has a new maternal sixth sense or something”, he mumbled sleepily. I wrote back some fluff about how a dream about being pregnant actually symbolised something deeper and that perhaps she was suddenly feeling a closer connection to me which I was appreciative of. There was no reply.
Only a few hours later, as we were returning home from a lunch we stopped at a traffic light under a bridge. There was a massive hoarding of Kareena holding a home pregnancy test and saying, ‘Aaj mujhe good news mili.‘ It was a sign, literally. And so we told them.
Wow, a sign it was! That’s some deep connection between these sisters-in-law. Life has a funny way of surprising us sometimes, no?!
