Congratulations are in order for the Nawab and Begum of Pataudi!

After months of speculation about an impending pregnancy, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have finally confirmed that they are expecting their first baby. They sent across an official statement to Pinkvilla announcing the good news.

Announcement made by the couple

"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," declared Saif.

And when the same question was put across to Mrs Khan she sent across a similar response.

"Saif 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," she said.

Here's how her pregnancy rumours started...

The begum of Pataudi sparked rumours of her pregnancy when she was first spotted at a UNICEF covering her supposed baby bump. This event was followed by her funny remarks during a promotional for her recent film Udta Punjab.

When she was asked about her pregnancy during one of these events, she responded, "I am a woman and god willing it may happen. But right now I have nothing to say about it. Every time I go on a holiday, there is news! But the fact that you all are talking about me, I am very excited! I have five children hidden in London.” Watch her funny response video here.

The couple have been dodging questions about their pregnancy, most likely because it was too early to announce. But now that we know that the baby is due in December, we can all finally say that Mrs Khan is stepping into her second trimester.

This will be the Kareena's first child and Saif’s third. He has two children from his earlier marriage.

Kareena almost confirmed her pregnancy earlier...

We had also reported earlier that Kareena had almost confirmed her pregnancy.

While answering questions about the subject, she said, “Of course, everyone has to ask me if I am pregnant or not. It is amazing, everywhere I go, even normal people are asking me. I think it is fine you know, I honestly don’t feel bad about it or I don’t even judge people for making comments or saying things like may be, is she, is she not.”

“Of course, I have never denied the fact that motherhood is a part of me. I don’t want to be the PM or President of USA, I don’t want to own the world but I definitely look forward to having a child,” she added.

She went on to add further, “But when it does happen, Pinkvilla will be the first to know, that much I can tell you. That can be anytime, I am not giving a timeline. I am not saying yes or no, but you guys will know at the right time. I saw the video and I was like ‘Was I? I was stiff, because I had been on a holiday’.”

Randhir Kapoor started the first rumour!

Kareena's dad Randhir Kapoor first fanned the paparazzi while speaking to the media about speculated pregnancy.

“Well, they haven’t told me yet, so I have no clue, but I hope it’s true. It’s high time that they had a baby,” he said as he spoke to a leading Mumbai daily.

We wish the gorgeous couple all the very best!
