The baby was reportedly born through surrogacy on May 27 at Masrani Hospital for Women in Andheri. The surrogate mother is said to be a close relative of Gauri Khan, quite probably Gauri’s sister-in-law, Namita Chibber. According to a BMC official as quoted by a leading daily, the baby was born after 34 weeks of pregnancy and weighed 1.5 kg at the time of birth.
Apparently there were some post-birth complications and the baby was shifted from Masrani Hospital to Nanavati Hospital and finally to Breach Candy.
Shahrukh Khan has so far been uncharacteristically tightlipped about the surrogate baby, and has even kept his silence through a raging controversy regarding the baby’s pre-natal sex determination. Last month, a team of BMC officials had visited the superstar to investigate into allegations of pre-natal sex determination (which is illegal in India) but the actor had reportedly denied the allegation.
Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan are both in their forties. They have been married for the past 22 years. They have a son Aryan, 15, and a daughter Suhana, 13. The third baby’s name isn’t known yet.
Buzz is that SRK will soon confirm the birth of his surrogate baby boy.
