Say that ten times fast! Anyway, wonderful news! Bebo had her baby! Saif is a father again! To a baby boy, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.
Isn’t that nice, keeping the Pataudi name pattern! Saif and Soha and their father Mansoor Ali Khan and grandfather Iftikar Ali Khan and so on and so on. All the “Ali Khan Pataudi”s. And now there is a new little tiny one!
The first name, Taimur, I trace back to Timur, who was the founder of the Timurid empire, and a great great great I-don’t-even-know-how-many-great grandfather of Akbar. Which seems a bit of an odd source for a baby name, so I am just assuming there is some Pataudi relative more recent than the 1300s who he is named for.
Equally important, a new little Kapoor! Which means a little Kapoor parade at the entrance of the Breach Candy Hospital.
Kareena’s father Randhir and grandmother Krishna (Krishna looks SO GOOD! Ranbir living with her must keep her young). And I think that is Babita, Kareena’s mother, who for some reason I always have a hard time recognizing.
Saif was there too, of course, and went outside to say good-bye when Randhir left.
And of course Karisma.
No Sharmila spotted yet, or Sara or Ibrahim to visit their new brother. Either the Tagore-Singh-Pataudi family is too classy to visit hospitals, or they are just too fancy to be photographed visiting hospitals.
