Shah Rukh Khan becomes father for third time

Shah Rukh Khan becomes father for third time The month-long wait for details of actor Shah Rukh Khan’s third baby, born with the help of a surrogate mother, is over.

BMC officials have received a birth report with details that a baby boy was born on May 27 to parents listed as Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Shah Rukh Khan at Masrani Hospital for Women in Andheri. The child was born at 34 weeks of pregnancy and weighed 1.5kg at birth, said BMC executive health officer Dr Arun Bamne.

The baby was reportedly taken from Masrani to Nanavati Hospital, Juhu, and finally to Breach Candy Hospital. It is believed that the child has been discharged from Breach Candy and is home with the Khans.

On Tuesday, Bamne told TOI, “We have received from Masrani Nursing Home a birth report, which has to be mandatorily filed by nursing homes and hospitals to register every birth in the city.”

Masrani Hospital is located in Lalubhai Compound, S V Road, Andheri (W).

On the basis of this birth report the BMC has to issue a birth certificate to the parents.

There are no official details about the surrogate mother, but some reports in the media had said that Gauri’s sister-in-law Namita Chibber may have been the surrogate. Khan family friends said the surrogate mother had already flown back to London.

Civic officials said the birth report was received by K-West Ward officials in June-end and was immediately sent to the head office because there was widespread controversy over whether a pre-natal sex determination test had been conducted. Reports in a section of the press had said that the baby’s gender had been known before birth, suggesting the use of sex-determination methods.

While Indian guidelines for Assisted Reproductive Techniques allow the use of surrogate mothers, the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act forbids testing to determine the gender of a foetus.

The BMC had sent a team to Khan’s residence on June 18 to determine the facts of the case, but the actor denied the reports. “Now that we have the birth certificate, we will follow the details of the child’s journey from the nursing home to Nanavati Hospital in Juhu to Breach Candy Hospital,” said a civic official.

When contacted, BMC additional municipal commissioner Manisha Mhaiskar said, “Our officials will now get back to the actor and get details about whether sex-determination tests were done in Mumbai.”

    So the rumor going on for a month turned out to be true.

    Don’t understand what was the need for SRK and Gauri to have a surrogate baby at this age when they already had kids who are teenagers now. I thought surrogate baby was for parents who had no kids. At least in Aamir’s case Kiran Rao had no kids of her own.

    I think SRK has lost it or this is some midlife crisis. Why could they not adopt one of the so many orphans out there?

      You are right Sputnik, it doesn’t look normal to have a baby at this age when they already have two teenage kids, that is why I sense there is something more to it and SRK’s silence on it also is adding to the mystery.. But of course I could be wrong.

      • Baba 10 years ago

        are you hinting a priyanka chopra angle? 😉

        • Nilda 10 years ago

          Lol! Though I dint think of it, but could be the case.. Situation is pregnant with possibilities. 🙂

    Silence could be for 3 reasons
    – they did not want all the media attention and wanted to have him a normal childhood.
    – the baby is not well.
    – Gauri is not baby’s mother or some such controversial thing.

    But in any case he should not have denied to BMC officials on 18th. Maybe the 4th reason is CE promotions should not hamper due to this?

  3. ank_16n 10 years ago

    “Why could they not adopt one of the so many orphans out there?”

    yes Adoption was always a better and nice option..!!

  4. Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

    #SrkApologiseToBMC 😛

    They did not adopt because the child needs to have Pathan blood – which he is over-proud to be.

    Now waiting for SRK to use that child name in every possible way Or a reply to any question unrelated.

    • ank_16n 10 years ago

      will get answers as he will be launching the CE music at an event with Press Meet..!!

  5. phoenix 10 years ago

    34 weeks is about 7 and half months. Baby is premature. 1.5 kg is very low birth weight (though right for 34 weeks). As per the original TOI article baby moved from one hospital to another, Masrani to Lilvati to Breach candy. Looks like some complication. Chances of birth defects are higher when mothers age crosses 34.

    May 27th is the baby birth date. News about of gender that caused controversy came out out in mid June. Gender was known as the baby was already born.

    SRK only denied doing Gender test, he neither denied or confirmed surrogacy.

  6. raj 10 years ago

    srk had planned the delivery of this baby to coincide with the release of chennai express. alas, the child came premature and srk lost out on a lot of publicity around chnnai express release time.

    why else wud he have a child at this stage, wen he has two kids, one male one female, and offcourse at age 48, his ‘pathan sperm’ may not be all that healthy (the premature delivery is one indication of that. and the child weighs 1.5 kg).

    so basically srk is a selfish man who is not even bothered about what his kids go through

    1. produces a child who may suffer life long

    2. his propoerty will now be distributed in three making the elder two children suffer (loosing 17% each of their share)

    3. his children may be burdened with taking care of the 3rd child if he is not healthy and normal

    4. his children must be already goiung through ridicule among freinds etc as its a very starnge and uncommon thing.

    5. if the news of gauri’s bhabhi being the surrogate mother is true, it leaves a real ba dtaste in the mouth. basically with his money he has used a female relative to spread his chengiz khan genes. how is it any different than having an affair with ur sis in law becoz u r rich?

  7. ank_16n 10 years ago

    moreover its SRk’s personal matter….so we should not Stretch it too much..!!

    whether he wants to say about it or not that’s totally his decision..!!

    My only problem was rumors of Sex Determination since it doesn’t look so… my matter rest here….!! 😛

  8. jeetu 10 years ago

    So called family man or chichora SRk. He cheated nation by determining gender and corrupt bmc supported him once more.

  9. Ankur 10 years ago

    He has to clarify on this. His silence is odd. Sometime back K Jo expressed desire to adopt a child. Will SRK hand over this child to K Jo?

        I initially was about to delete this comment but then saw you requested to delete the other comment so deleted only that one. I thought you must have requested deletion of this comment by mistake. So should I leave this comment now or delete it?

        • FS 10 years ago

          Delete it. Why didn’t u warn me 4tht ridiculous comment btw?

            I thought you first comment was a joke. I did not think this comment was bad. Anyways I don’t always warn people for every comment. When someone keeps repeating or people are already fighting over the comments I step in.

    First Aamir, then SRK … next Salman?
    Who will be the oldest dad … the new pissing competition for the Khans!

  12. sauravjha 10 years ago

    My request to all will be to refrain from commenting sad thing about the baby as well as parents. Its not in good taste and if at all its their personal decision. Even if we don’t like it we should respect it. We are here to discuss movies, stars and their work and this doesn’t come under it! ank_16n and FS have shown the way and that should be the way to go.

    couldnt resist this. two news item headlines

    Shah Rukh Khan, wife Gauri blessed with a baby boy

    Why is Hrithik Roshan thankful to Shahrukh Khan?

  14. Bored 10 years ago

    @Baba – Going for Lootera? Can u come online now?

  15. Bored 10 years ago

    I dont get the need for 50 yr olds to become fathers? Its a biological problem that at this age your degraded sperms can only produce retarded kids (as if bollywood is already short on retarded star sons!!!)

  16. Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

    C’mon guys let us not badmouth the kid. Here is wishing the kid a healthy and normal life.

    It may be a mishap / unfortunate event for SRK and family.

    Btw on a lighter note – after “Aryan” SRK should name this kid “Dravidian”. It will help CE promotions 😉

  17. Bored 10 years ago

    Here is scientific proof for the biological problem:

    Amitabh Bachchan gave birth to Abhishek at 33.
    Rishi Kapoor gave birth to Ranbir at 30.
    Rakesh roshan gave birth to Hrithik at 24.

    Khans are doing it at 50 … Ahem!

  18. Suprabh 10 years ago

    I don’t understand this absurd discussion..Srk is not answerable to anyone else about his family kids and reproductive means.

    All this is total Aunty Panchayat types talks going on.

    Good luck to parents and the kid.

  19. Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

    Well said Sup.

    But he is answerable to BMC if sex determination was done. And thats was the whole point atleast as far as my view was concerned.

    SRK talking about the ‘baby’

  21. Serenzy 10 years ago

    Irrespective of the Superstar Issue here(and Shah Rukh-Gauri actually going ahead with it at this time of their lives), I personally will prefer Surrogacy to Adoption in real-life of whatever little I know of both.

    Even in VICKY DONOR, though they adopted the girl-child in the end, she was born through Ayushmann’s Sperm Donation only and NOT totally someone else’s child.

  22. Nilda 10 years ago

    So infact there is something more to it,as he says “he will talk abt it when the sad part is over”
    Wishing him all the good.

    SRK’s official statement on his new-born baby AbRam

    Amidst all the noise that has been going around, the sweetest is the one made by our new-born baby, AbRam.

    He was born prematurely by several months but has finally come home.

    Gauri and our whole family have been dealing with his health issues for a long time now.

    As a family our silence on this subject has been because of the personal nature of emotional strife that we have been going through due to his health.

    We wish to make a special mention and thank Dr. Jatin Shah for his expertise and contribution. We also wish to thank all the other doctors, nurses and medical staff who have made his life possible. As trying were the times, we never lost hope that life always brings with it.

    Just to put the record straight there was no sex determination for our child. The baby was born much before the speculations of ‘sex determination’ and other ‘issues’ pertaining to the same were being raised in the media by some organisations.

    Suffice to say his coming home puts to rest completely false and at times insensitive claims of sex determination and alleged illegalities.

    We also apologise to all those other doctors and hospitals who had to face unwanted scrutiny and questioning by some parties.

    Our son is a surrogate baby and the entire process is bound by strict confidentiality. We would appeal to all, to allow us to cherish this private moment as a family.

    It seems unfortunate that I have to explain/clarify so many aspects for our new-born baby. Wish it were just a simple message of happiness on behalf of the family.

    They say a baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on. Post this statement, I hope we all move on too.

    Thank you.

    Shah Rukh Khan

    now kamal hassan is ready to make a film called AbRam after making HeyRam. 😀


  25. I.One 10 years ago

    So SRK have named his 3rd child as AbRam, which is basically a shorter and older terminology for Abraham. Aryan, Suhana and now AbRam, sounds like Amar, Akbar, Anthony to me 🙂

    SRK’s son Abram looks just like SRK from his childhood pictures and he is trending on twitter.
