She posted a photo of hers with a caption, which read, “As I enter my 40th year… I want to sit back, reflect, love, laugh, forgive, forget and most importantly pray and thank the strongest force up there for giving me the strength and thank my experiences and decisions for making me the woman I am… Some right, some wrong, some great, some not so… but still, hey BIG 40 make it BIG.”

December 2020: On working while being pregnant
As the actor was busy with multiple photoshoots and collaborations as well as shooting for her talk show What Women Want during pregnancy, she opened up about working while she was pregnant. She said in an interview with Bombay Times, “I have never been that kind of a person who would sit at home and say, ‘Now I want to put my feet up’. I am doing what I want to do. Working — whether it’s during my pregnancy or post-delivery — has been a point to just say that when has anyone ever said that pregnant women can’t work?”
Furthermore, she also talked about being a working mother and added, “In fact, the more active you are, the healthier the baby is and the happier the mother is. After delivery, too, once you feel fit enough, one should do what they feel like doing, and try to balance it out between giving time to the child as well as your work and yourself. I have always been very proud of being a working mother.” Read more about it here.
With her empowering words, she has set a remarkable example of how motherhood and pregnancy don’t mean a full stop on a woman’s career.
February 2021: About her Second Pregnancy
In an interview with Times Now Digital, Kareena spoke in length about how her second pregnancy is different from her first. She said, “I guess I am more prepared and confident this time around. I was quite nervous and jittery since I was going to turn a mother for the first time. his time around,” she added, “I am way calmer and thankfully, I am not going berserk yet.”
February 2021: An Emotional Note Prior To Delivery
Kareena shared an emotional note on Instagram by an account run by the name of Freddy Birdy, prior to delivering her second child. The post was, “The most important thing to building a relationship, whether at home, at work or in life, is somebody ‘getting’ you. Now, this is a two-way street. We want everybody to ‘get’ us, to understand us, but very few do. Sometimes those closest to us might not get us, but a complete stranger might.”
It further read, “We need people to ‘get’ our jokes, to ‘know’ why at times we need to keep quiet. Which is why we instantly love people we don’t know, like actors and actresses, because we ‘get’ them. We may not know Kareena Kapoor, but we ‘get’ her. May very, very few people ‘have’ you, but may many, many more ‘get’ you.”
Resharing the post on her Instagram Stories, the actor wrote, “I get you @freddy_birdy.”
Moreover, Kareena recently gave us a sneak peek into the evening snack that she ate to quench her cravings. Sharing a picture of her favourite takeout in her Instagram stories, she revealed that she loves to eat roti, rice, a meaty dish along with a snack at dinner.
She also revealed that she is working on her first book titled Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible, which would be a comprehensive guide for expecting mothers. The book is expected to come out this year.
