“Surrogacy is an arrangement or agreement whereby a woman agrees to carry a pregnancy for another person or persons, who will become the newborn child’s parent(s) after birth.” In India, the act of surrogacy is legal since 2002 but doesn’t have a strong legal backing.
Bollywood has been quite a trend setter in this case. Eminent stars have used this medium for childbirth and made this practice quite famous here in India.
Here are 6 celebs who took aid of surrogacy:
Tusshar Kapoor: He became the first single biological father of Bollywood and welcomed his son, “Laksshya”. The Golmaal actor, who is not married, opted for the means of surrogacy to be a proud biological father of a child.
Shahrukh Khan: SRK is the biggest face of surrogacy in India, as he welcomed his third son via this medium. Shahrukh was already a father of 2, Suhana and Aryan when he opted to go for his third child via surrogacy. And just like father, Abram Khan has already swooned millions of hearts with his cuteness.
Aamir Khan: Kiran Rao and Aamir were facing problems with childbirth and finally decided to have a baby via IVF. They welcomed Azad Rao Khan on 1st December in 2011.
Farah Khan: Choreographer and director Farah Khan and her husband Shirish Kunder struggled with childbirth for 2 years until she finally went with the IVF procedure.
Sohail Khan: Sohail Khan and his wife Seema gave birth to their first child in 2000. 11 years later, in 2011, they planned to expand their family. They opted for the means of surrogacy for giving birth to Yohan.
And last but not the least, the latest addition to this list, Karan Johar kept it a secret for a long time and recently disclosed about the latest development in his life. KJo was blessed with twins last month whom he named as Yash and Roohi. Riding in the ecstatic high, KJo is very happy with the birth of his children which he got successful with surrogacy. The entire film fraternity is also over-joyed with Karan Johar’s family expansion.
