Surrogacy has finally gained recognition and acceptance. Having babies through surrogacy has become a common thing in India. People have started to opt for alternative means, such as adoption, sperm donation, egg donation and in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). India opened up to commercial surrogacy in 2002. With the help of surrogacy, many celebrities have been able to fulfill their desire for parenthood. Let’s have a look at some of the celebrities who have opted for surrogacy.
1. Karan Johar
In February 2017, the filmmaker Karan Johar announced himself as a proud single parent to twins, Roohi and Yash, via surrogacy. The twins are a boy and a girl who was born in Masrani Hospital in Andheri West, Mumbai.
