Actress Kareena Kapoor, who is expecting her second baby, has revealed that she has gained 25 kgs during her first pregnancy. However, she seems to be focusing on sticking to the basics.
Kareena and her husband Saif Ali Khan earlier announced that they were expecting their second child. “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family!! Thank you to all our well-wishers for all their love and support.”
‘Tashan’ actress told a local news source that when she was pregnant with Taimur, she “tended to believe the myth that an expecting mother should eat for two.” The actor said that she is now focused on getting “the right amount of nutrition through grains and vegetables.” She said, “Women have a lot of cravings when they are pregnant, but I realized that I must eat for myself as opposed to eating for two.”
She thanked her friends, sisters Malaika and Amrita Arora, for encouraging her to stay fit. “I am blessed to have friends like Amrita and Malaika who constantly motivate me to stay fit. Amrita is extremely conscious of her health and works hard to stay fit. This is great because we keep each other driven, and egg one another on to follow the routine together. We have our group workout sessions often, and that is fun,” Kareena said.
Kareena also said that she likes to indulge once in a while in some pasta and caramel custard while she prefers to keep her meals simple.
