Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan is happily married to Saif Ali Khan since 4 years and is expecting their first child together, which is due for December this year. She spoke about her pre-motherhood phase in an interview with a popular daily.
Here’s what she said, “I feel absolutely normal. In fact, more than me, it’s the people around me who have changed. Isn’t motherhood the most normal thing to happen to any woman? I don’t understand why people are making such a big deal about it. Everyone keeps asking me how I am prepping for it. I think the only prep I am doing is that I’m not listening to 500 people, because everyone has their views and take on motherhood. Like always, I am doing my own thing (laughs). I don’t want to be riddled with preconceived notions. That’s the best advice I have given myself.”
She also spoke about how her decision to marry Saif Ali Khan was not taken kindly by many people. Bebo said, “Saif and I have been together for nearly a decade, so this was a natural progression in our life. Years ago, when I had started living-in with Saif, I was warned not to do it. Then I was told not to get married, but I didn’t budge from my decision. Now, when I am on my way to being a mom, I know that people will put a tag to it, but it doesn’t bother me. Nothing has ever stopped me from working and I know how to balance my professional and personal life. I know it’s going to be an amazing experience, but I don’t expect him to sit at home. We are going to take each day as it comes.”
She also said that she would take a short break after her baby is born and resume work soon. “I am always going to work and take my holidays too. So, that is not going to change. Once I get into a routine with the baby , only then will I know how I am feeling. Right now, I am reading a script which is great, and people want to lock the post-delivery dates. It all feels the same. People had said that I would run out of work after marriage, but interestingly, I did more work. Saif always tells me, `See, you worked more after marriage, and you are going to do the same after the baby”, said Kareena.
