After Filmmaker Karan Johar, television actor Gurmeet Choudhary and his wife Debina Bonnerjee are all set to embrace parenthood. According to sources, the duo will drive down to Jarampur, a small village in Bihar and Gurmeet's hometown, which is five hours from Patna, to adopt two girls.

They met the girls three years ago in 2014, when Debina and Gurmeet went to Jarampur to attend a family wedding. The two girls Lata and Pooja, aged nine and six are orphans and very close to Gurmeet's mother, the sources added.

"After hearing about their plight from my mother I discussed them with my wife. Debina agreed with me that it was time to give the kids a home, a deserving education and my last name," Gurmeet is quoted as saying to a national daily. "All the paperwork is done. We will be going to Jarampur for the final signatures after Holi. It is a two-day process.Everybody, including my parents, keep asking me when I'm planning a baby. Well, it's official now, I'm bringing home two daughters and we couldn't be more excited."
