Filmmaker Karan Johar has become the proud father to a pair of twins — a girl and a boy. The twins were reportedly born via a surrogate in February 2017.
According to reports, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials confirmed that the babies’ birth had been registered with them on Friday, 3 March 2017.

“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,” Johar said in a statement.
“I am eternally grateful to the surrogate who has fulfilled my lifelong dream and provided a warm, loving and nurturing environment to my children before bringing them into this world. She will always remain in my prayers,” he added.
Johar is not the only celebrity to be a single father. In 2016, Tusshar Kapoor too had a son via IVF.
