Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's baby, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, has been making news ever since his birth on 20 December last year.

Khan finally opened up on the fuss surrounding Taimur's name, discussed the baby's adorable habits and how his mother 'Bebo' thinks that their son has taken after his father in many ways.

Clarifying the confusion around the baby's name, Khan said that Taimur had not named after the Turkish invader and ruler.

"I'm aware of the heritage of the Turkish ruler and my son

was not named after him," Khan said. "He was Timur, my son is Taimur. Perhaps the root is similar but it's not the same name. Taimur is an ancient Persian name, meaning iron."

On the reason behind naming their son Taimur, Khan said, "Both my wife and I liked its sound and the meaning. In fact, of all the names I ran by Kareena, she liked this one the best because it's beautiful and strong. Taimur was the name of a boy I had grown up with and a cousin too. It's an old family name, like Sara who was also named after a cousin I admired."
