Having a tiny tot to call your own is something many people wish for – but may not always have. With the advancement in medicine, it is possible for all (with money) to get a kid who share their blood and DNA. Many people for all walks of life are making use of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) surrogacy to extend their families and Bollywood stars aren’t far behind.
What is surrogacy?
IVF surrogacy is the use of a third party to carry the pregnancy or the child when a parent is unable to carry a baby themselves. This third-party surrogate may also be called a gestational mother. The whole process of carrying a baby until delivering it is on a contractual basis with the intended parents. The process includes undergoing an embryo transfer procedure using embryos created through IVF and to carry the resulting pregnancy.
Here are some Bollywood actors who opted to have kids through IVF surrogacy:
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao
Aamir Khan who already had two children from his first marriage opted for IVF surrogacy for his third kid. Aamir and Kiran Rao were shattered after Kiran’s miscarriage.
On December 5, 2011, Kiran and Aamir were blessed with an adorable son who they named Azad.
