Kareena Kapoor Khan and Katherine Heigl have a lot in common. Both the actresses had baby boys — born on December 20. Both the actressses also had trouble with the names of their babies. While Kareena Kapoor faced backlash for naming her son Taimur Ali Khan. The former Grey’s Anatomy actress had a tough time naming her newborn son, Joshua. On a TV show, she revealed, “I just struggled with his name. It’s a big decision and you don’t want to fail this child with the wrong name.”
Heigl, ultimately chose to name her baby boy after her husband, musician Josh Kelley. “I sort of approached him with it and said, ‘What do you think about a junior?’ And he was like, ‘Aww, I love that. That would mean a lot to me.
He in the past said that he hated that idea but I wasn’t finding something that I was responding to,” Heigl recalled. Kareena and Saif’s baby name Taimur too created a lot of hiccups on social media. In an interview the Rangoon actor had said, “I thought for a second about changing his name. For a couple of weeks. And Kareena was a little against it. She said, ‘People respect you for your opinion and you can’t’… I said, yeah, but it’s not about people. I don’t want him to get unpopular. And I still might, maybe when he’s one or two.” But now that the furore has died down, perhaps he will stick to his son’s original name.
