Karan Johar recently welcomed his children Yash and Roohi born to him via surrogacy. But what many do not know is that the twins were born two months premature, and they have been in the NICU ever since.
On Twitter, Karan penned an emotional note to express his gratitude to doctors and his legal team.
In the note, Karan confesses that he was ‘terrified’ that there were complications with his babies’ birth.
“Even the most anticipated events can sometimes leave us shaken, confused. And events that occur without any warning can turn our worlds on their very heads. My children were born two months premature and worryingly underweight. Like any person in this situation and on the brink of fatherhood, my heart sank.”
It goes on to read, “Knowing that there were complications with my babies’ birth owing to how soon it was, I was terrified. All I wanted to do was hold them and protect them but they needed to be in the NICU. It was painful to see how tiny they were… Thankfully, I had a great support system. Roohi and Yash were in the hands of the most competent and patient doctors. Something that had its roots in an ordeal, soon turned into an experience that I will never forget.”
Karan says that “as someoone with a voice” he wants to speak out about preemies and reassures that babies are resilient and stand a good chance of survival with the right care.
