- 'My children were born two months premature,' said Karan
- 'I was terrified,' he added
- 'Thankfully, I had a great support system,' said Karan
"Knowing that there were complications with my babies' birth owing to how soon it was, I was terrified. All I wanted to do was hold them and protect them but they needed to be in the NICU. It was painful to see how tiny they were. Thankfully, I had a great support system. Roohi and Yash were in the hands of the most competent and patient doctors. Something that had its roots in an ordeal, soon turned into an experience that I will never forget," Karan added in his post.

The 44-year-old filmmaker has earlier told PTI that seeing his children for the first time was the "most surreal" feeling ever. "When I saw them for the first time, I didn't realise there were tears rolling down. I couldn't believe they were two big pieces of me who are staring at me, who are innocent, vulnerable. It was the most surreal overwhelming emotion I have ever experienced," PTI quoted Karan as saying.
Karan Johar joins the league of other Bollywood actors who embraced parenthood via surrogacy. Aamir Khan and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao are parents to five-year-old Azad, who was born via surrogacy. Actor Tusshar Kapoor also became a single father via surrogacy last year.
