It’s official! Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are blessed with a baby boy this morning!
A child’s first birthday is a special moment for parents. After all it’s their birthday too as new parents! A journey that they began an year ago with an all new member in the family has reached its first big milestone.

Pampering my tired feet is my idea of ultimate relaxation. I make sure to get my dose of bliss every month with my favourite pedicurist. This Karwachauth, when I couldn’t manage a trip to my parlour, I ended up at Nailspa Experience Spa & Salon’s newest outlet. Though a little skeptical in the beginning, I was mighty pleased at the end of the experience.
