Joining the bandwagon of celebrities with surrogate kids, 44-year-old famous filmmaker, producer, costume designer and actor Karan Johar has become a single proud parent of a baby girl and boy, Roohi and Yash, respectively. The news about his newborn twins started surfacing after news on the birth registration of his kids were confirmed by BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) health officials.
Karan, of course, chose social media to announce the news by publishing a statement saying that he feels blessed and ecstatic to welcome his twins. He even expressed his gratitude to the surrogate mother without naming her in the letter.
“I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines – Roohi and Yash. I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science,” reads Karan’s letter.
Karan’s heartfelt message in the same letter for the surrogate mother reads, “I am eternally grateful to the surrogate who has fulfilled my lifelong dream and provided a warm, loving and nurturing environment to my children before bringing them into this world. She will always remain in my prayers.”
The man with style and persona even expressed that the amount of responsibility will be more towards his children from now on and he is ready for that. His children are going to be his only priority and that all his work and other commitments to get a back seat for some time. Karan Johar is not the first and only one in the B-Town to embrace the method of surrogacy for becoming a parent.
