Birthdays are always special, but this year Kareena Kapoor Khan has another reason to smile about. The leading lady is expecting her first baby with actor-husband Saif Ali Khan.

Kareena turns 36 on 21 September and all she plans to do on this special day is eat lots of food and relax. There has never been a grand party for her birthdays and like every year, she will be spending the day with close friends, family and Saif.

"It is [birthday] special this time. But to be honest there are no special plans. I will celebrate my birthday with family and close friends like every year. There is no party as such. I will eat lots of food and just relax," she said.

With an illustrious career spanning over a decade, Kareena is one of the few actresses who refuse to give in to stereotypes and some of her recent statements on motherhood is proof of that.

She put a stop to all the attention her pregnancy was getting right after she broke the news to the media. It was being said she would be taking a maternity break, causing the producers of Veerey Di Wedding quite a bit of loss.

"It's the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn't work with me... but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty," she said.
