Bollywood Baadshah Shahrukh Khan confirmed on Tuesday that the premature birth of his and his wife Gauri Khan’s surrogate baby boy is named AbRam.
Shahrukh Khan made the news official himself via a statement, “Amidst all the noise that has been going around, the sweetest is the one made by our newborn baby, AbRam. He was born prematurely by several months, but has finally come home,” said Shah Rukh.
“Gauri and our whole family have been dealing with his health issues for a long time now,” he added.
Explaining his silence on the matter, he said: “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.”
The superstar also confirmed, rubbishing all rumours that “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,” he added.
The actor also apologized to the doctors and hospitals who faced ‘unwanted scrutiny and questioning by some parties’ and thanked the doctor concerned, Jatin Shah for his expertise and help to make the surrogacy successful.
“We also wish to thank all the other doctors, nurses and medical staff who have made his life possible,” added Shah Rukh,
He has appealed to all “to allow us to cherish this private moment as a family”.
We sure will! Congratulations Shahrukh!
