Thank you to all our well-wishers for all their love and support," the couple announced the arrival of Jeh via joint statement. Recently, Kareena urged everyone to not make a taboo of late pregnancy. "I never planned to have a baby because you know I was like in 36 or Oh my biological clock is ticking so I need to speed it up or whatever.

I didn't give much thought because my thought was always on my work and you know being happy and content with myself. So I don't think late mothers should have this pressure," she had said.
