Sources said, it was the decision of Gauri Khan to have a baby through surrogacy as she was keen on having a third child. The report further added that SRK and Gauri consulted the same doctor that Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao had went to during their surrogacy.
To welcoming a third baby special bash has already been planned and invitations to Gauri Khan’s family have also been sent. And the big bash is planned for July.
Shahrukh and Gauri Khan do not want their close friends and family in the hospital where the child will take birth. But, both of them want their family members as well as close friends to be present when they welcome the baby home.
A family member of the actor said that Gauri did not want to go through the whole trouble of pregnancy and risks at the age of 47. Hence, they decided to opt for surrogacy and secretly planned this child in the year 2012 when Shah Rukh was shooting for Chennai Express.
SRK and Gauri are not the first couple to have a surrogate baby. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao were the first B-town couple to have a baby boy through surrogacy. In December 2011, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and Kiran announced the birth of their son, Azad Rao Khan through a surrogate mother.
