It’s a boy! On December 20, Bollywood royalty Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their baby boy. They left the social media in a buzz with excitement upon releasing the name of their beautiful baby boy – Taimur Ali Khan.

It was the very close film maker friend of the duo, Karan Johan who took to Twitter to announce Saifeena’s first born. And since, there has been no stopping of the flow of love and excitement on social media, for the couple.

Taimur is a Turkish word, which means iron. However, in the pages of history the name has a special mention. Taimur or Timur was a Mongol conqueror of Central Asia. Historically, Taimur was referred as Ali Tamerlane or Timur Lang.

The conqueror also referred to himself the ‘Sword of Islam’ and intended to purify the human race. Historians also state that Babar, who was the first king of Mughal dynasty, is one of his descendants.

The name in itself has a deep historic legacy attached and with the royal blood of Pataudi and Kapoor, Bebo’s Taimur Ali Khan will sure set his own marks.
