From Sunny Leone, KJo To SRK, These Indians Celebs Took The Road Less Taken To Enjoy Parenthood
Unless you were vacationing in some exotic island and caught up with the Internet only now, you will have come across the post, where Sunny Leone announced the birth of her twins. In the beginning of this week, Sunny announced the news of the birth of Asher Sigh Weber and Noah Singh Weber via surrogacy.
She posted the family’s photo on Instagram and wrote, “God’s plan! June 21st, 2017 was the day Daniel and I found out that we might possibly be having three children within a short amount of time. We planned and tried to have a family and after so many years are family is now complete with Asher Singh Weber, Noah Singh Weber and Nisha Kaur Weber.”
God’s Plan!! June 21st, 2017 was the day @dirrty99 and I found out that we might possible be having 3children within a short amount of time. We planned and tried to have a family and after so many years our family is now complete with Asher Singh Weber, Noah Singh Weber and Nisha Kaur Weber. Our boys were born a few weeks ago but were alive in our hearts and eyes for many years. God planned something so special for us and gave us a large family.We are both the proud parents of three beautiful children. Surprise everyone!
In fact, in July last year, Sunny set another great example by adopting their first child Nisha Kaur Weber. While the couple’s friends, family and fans are thrilled with the news, it’s interesting to know how the two chose to go for the unconventional ways of pregnancy.
However, Sunny is not the only celebrity who chose to go for surrogacy. Before her, a lot of celebrities like Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Tushar Kapoor and Sushmita Sen have set great examples for the world to follow.
So, let’s take a look at all those celebs who got kids either through surrogacy, IVF or adoption.
Last year, filmmaker Karan Johar welcomed twins Roohi and Yash. Both were born through surrogacy. A single father, Johar dotes on his kids and his Instagram speaks volumes about how he is taking his duties as a dad seriously and having the time of his life, with his bundles of joy.
In fact, this year on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Johar shared a special message for his little girl Roohi and wrote, “I was raised by a woman who had a strong mind…an independent mind and a solid soul…she taught me how to live a fearless life along with a strong sense of right and wrong! She also taught me the art of abandon! She made me the man I am….a man who is honoured to be raised by a woman of substance! Roohi my darling I hope I raise you to be just like your grandmother….#happywomensday.”
No matter how you feel about his movies or his acting, there is one role that Tusshar plays just perfectly. That role is of a father to his son Laksshya, who was born through surrogacy using IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation). As a single father, Tusshar stunned everyone with his bold decision of getting a baby and treading the path of parenthood. And his Instagram is proof that he deserves the award for the world’s best dad.

When we talk about adoption, how can we not talk about our former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen? She is not only one of the most successful actresses in Bollywood, but also a powerful source of inspiration for all the single mothers and women in the world.
At a time, when couples were still scared to go for adoption, Sushmita fought with the world, adopted a girl child in 2000 and is raising her as a single mother. She named her daughter Renee. In 2010, she adopted another girl child Alisah. Sushmita is an epitome of true woman power.
Mithun is not only one of the greatest actors in Bollywood, but also a great human being and a hero in real life. Almost every other day we hear stories of a girl child being abandoned or killed. But, how many of us actually do something to change this social evil? Years ago, a baby girl was rescued by an NGO, after they found her abandoned near a garbage dump.
When Mithun got to know about the baby, who was extremely weak then, he immediately decided to adopt her. His wife Yogita Bali was completely supportive of his decision, and the couple adopted her and named her Dishani Chakraborty. Dishani has now grown up into a beautiful young girl who is the apple of her family’s eye. She is currently studying at the New York Film Academy. Honestly, after getting to know this side of his, we feel Mithun deserves or should we say commands all the respect in the world.
“Merry Christmas Eve, Eve.”
Shah Rukh Khan
Bollywood’s King Khan stunned the whole world, when he announced the birth of his third child AbRam. However, what’s surprising was the fact that AbRam was born via surrogacy. Back then, Shah Rukh Khan had reportedly said, “Amidst all the noise that has been going around, the sweetest is the one made by our newborn baby, AbRam. He was born prematurely by several months, but has finally come home.”
Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao also opted for surrogacy using the IVF technique to bring son Azad Rao Khan into the world. The couple was vocal about the process and even released a letter where they thanked the doctors for making it happen, and talked about the medical complications involved in their case.
Farah Khan gave birth to not one kid or twins, but triplets via IVF and surrogacy. The filmmaker is not only proud of the fact she had children through IVF, but also feels that opening up about it will give courage to those who were scared to go for it. Reportedly, Farah said, “It is important that we come forward and take pride in this because it give so much courage and so much hope to people who want to do it, but are scared to do it properly.”
She even jokingly once said, “I proudly say that my children are from IVF and no, a pizza man did not deliver you.”
