Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan launched her debut book, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible, on Monday. In a conversation with Karan Johar, the 'Jab We Met' actor, who has two sons with her husband Saif Ali Khan, got candid about her pregnancy and spoke about losing her sex drive.
"You yourself spoke about how you lost your sex drive and your husband was very understanding through those days. What are the notions that surround sex life during a woman’s pregnancy and what does a woman feel herself?” Karan asked Kareena.
She replied by saying, "People just feel like… When you are pregnant, they don’t realise the kind of moods, emotions, feelings, what you actually feel about yourself. That’s so important. Some days, I would feel super amazing and sexy, and feel ‘oh my God, I am looking so hot with this belly’ and I feel amazing, and I would tell Saif that or he would say, ‘You are looking beautiful.'"
"But there were times post six-seven months where I felt like… Of course, I was exhausted and I couldn’t get myself to get up sometimes in the morning. But sometimes, it’s just a feeling of repulsion. You are just in a mental state when you don’t know what to think. It’s so important to have a supportive man and most men should not put pressure on their wives to a) look beautiful while they are pregnant and b) feel they are any less. That pressure shouldn’t be there or like ‘this is it, our regular sex life has to be super-active,'" she added.
Kareena also revealed that her second pregnancy was difficult compared to the first one.
"This time, it was difficult. During the time when I had Taimur, it was like a breeze and that's why I decided to go for childbirth again. But Jeh was difficult," Kareena, who gave birth to Jeh on February 21, said.
