"Ecstatic" Karan Johar announced the arrivals of his twins, Roohi and Yash adding that he was blessed to be a parent of the baby boy and girl

Filmmaker Karan Johar has officially announced the birth of his twins, Roohi and Yash adding that they were the “most wonderful additions” to his life. Karan Johar confirmed the news of him becoming a parent of two twins through surrogacy on March 5.

“I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines; Roohi and Yash. I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science,” Karan Johar said in a statement.

He stated that it was “emotional yet well thought out decision which I have taken after considering all the responsibilities and duties that come with being a parent. In order to arrive at this decision, I have prepared myself mentally, physically and logistically to ensure that my children get all the unconditional love, care and attention.”

He further thanked the surrogate mother for fulfilling “his lifelong dream and providing warm, loving and nurturing environment” to his children. Read his full statement here:

It was earlier reported that Karan Johar had twins last month at Masrani Hospital in Andheri. However, it is only now that Karan Johar has made the official confirmation. During the launch of his autobiography, “An Unsuitable Boy”, Karan Johar had asserted that he would like to father children while adding that he could either adopt or use surrogacy.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do about it but I feel like I would like to be a parent. I don’t know how it’s going to happen but I do feel the need because I have plenty of love to offer and I’d like to take it forward. This feeling needs a release and requires a platform. And that platform could be by being a parent,” he said.

Last year, Bollywood actor, Tushar Kapoor also became a proud father of a beautiful baby boy using surrogacy. Bollywood’s King Khan and Karan Johar’s close friend, Shah Rukh Khan also had his baby boy Abram Khan through surrogacy.
