Saif Ali Khan recently welcomed an adorable bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, with wife Kareena Kapoor Khan. In fact, Taimur's picture from baby Laksshya's birthday have gone viral on the internet.
Talking about their little munchkin's schedule, Saif in a recent interview said, "I have been leaving my house early and I have started waking him up at around 7. He finishes his feed — he has just started on solid foods — and we spend about 20 minutes together. I read to him or put on some music, or nursery rhymes. Taimur incidentally begins his day by listening to aarti."
The 'Rangoon' actor further added, "If I return by 8 pm and he is awake, we spend another 20 minutes together. He begins his day with bhajans and ends his day by listening to Chopin and Tchaikovsky. Other than that he just, burps and farts all day, just like me.
When asked if Saif likes to fancy himself as a hands-on dad, Saif revealed, "It is fashionable to say I am changing diapers, etc. Everyone does it. It’s no big deal. The real thing is being with the baby all day and taking care of him 24/7. Luckily we have a family set-up and everyone pitches in, and we also have help here to do all that for us and that’s a big blessing. I have seen friends in London and they do everything themselves. And it’s a lot of work. No wonder some of them kill their babies. Yes, it happens. I know it is a politically incorrect thing to do. Anyway, I think a father’s role is for other bigger things. When Taimur grows up, and we can talk is when the real father-son equation comes into play. All this is frivolous."
While Taimur's cuteness has been breaking the internet, Kareena had revealed that it was Saif's idea to not hide their son from the public eye.
Talking about the decision to not keep Taimur away from the public eye Saif stated, "For me, it was not about superstition, it was about safety. The paparazzi culture is getting really bad. They are always outside our home. But it isn’t as bad as it is abroad. It will only get there for sure. They will get the picture anyway sooner or later. The more you hide, the more aggressive they will get. I wanted to avoid that push and shove. It’s better to give them that pic. I told Bebo to hold his hand and make him wave to the photographers. Also, I feel, why should Taimur be treated any different from other children out there."
