A baby in Shah Rukh Khan’s house | written update | review
Please post your review.
Mumbai: The mystery around Shah1Rukh1Khan’s rumoured1surrogate baby has taken yet another turn, say media reports.
According to reports in a certain section of the media — reports over which Shah Rukh1has assiduously maintained a silence – the baby is due to be born in July. But according to information available with this newspaper there seems to be another baby in Shah1Rukh’s1andGauri’s1l ife these days.
This child, a male, was delivered by1GauriKhan’s sister-in-law1NamitaChibber. She was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital on June 4 under the care of Dr1IndiraHinduja.
Dr Hinduja is a pioneering doctor in assisted reproductive health who had delivered India’s first test-tube baby in 1986; she was approached by1Shah Rukh Khan1a few months ago to discuss the possibility of assisted delivery, sources say.
The baby delivered by1Namita Chibber1was born premature at seven months and has since been kept at the hospital’s neo-natal intensive care unit. The baby is in the care of1paediatrician Dr Cyrus Contractor, who is closely monitoring its health.
According to several family members of patients we spoke to,1Gauri Khan1has been routinely visiting the hospital and Shah Rukh was spotted there earlier on Tuesday when he went for a follow up visit for his shoulder injury; he also visited1the NICU1that day.
While the baby — unconfirmed reports suggest he is called Abram,1a variant of Abraham1which means father of multitudes (nations) — continues to remain in the NICU, sources say he might be kept there until he attains healthy weight, Namita Chibber was discharged on Friday. The discharge form carries not Chibber’s or her husband’s telephone number but1Shah Rukh Khan’sprivate number. Though of course that’s not proof that the baby is SRK and1Gauri’s, it does suggest that there is a new child in their larger family.
Shah Rukh has been dodging all talk of a surrogate baby, neither denying nor confirming anything each time he has been specifically asked about an addition to his family. The star would instead prefer to focus attention on his upcoming1film1Chennai Express1that releases this Eid amid great expectations.
Nobody knows about Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan's surrogate baby's due date, neither the couple has said anything about the baby. But there seems to be a big twist in the story. As reported by a Tabloid, Gauri Khan's sister-in-law Namita Chibber recently gave birth to a male child in Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital.
The Tabloid also reported that Gauri has been regularly visiting the hospital and Shah Rukh was spotted there earlier on Tuesday. The report further adds that the discharge form of Namita Chibber carries Shah Rukh Khan's private number.
The baby might be kept in NICU until he attains healthy weight. We congratulate Shah Rukh Khan’s family.
