Shahrukh Khan

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan Tuesday confirmed for the first time the premature birth of his and his wife Gauri Khan's surrogate baby boy, who has been named AbRam.

Shah Rukh, 47, made the news official about his surrogate baby 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 longstanding 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 called the 'baadshah' of Bollywood, also put the record straight 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.

On his part, the actor-producer has also apologised to "all those other doctors and hospitals who had to face unwanted scrutiny and questioning by some parties", and he has thanked the doctor concerned, Jatin Shah, for his expertise and contribution 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, who also said the entire surrogacy process is bound by "strict confidentiality".

He has appealed to all "to allow us to cherish this private moment as a family".

Shah Rukh, who began his tryst with showbiz through the small screen in 1988, married Gauri in 1991. They have two children together - son Aryan,16, and daughter Suhana, 13.

    Srk has given his baby the name AbRam because it shows the unity of their family. This should be obvious. Gauri is Hindu and Shahrukh muslim. There is no right and wrong here. The path to God are several but God himself is one.

    Very happy for Srk. Finally he has cleared the air and his baby is home. Congrats


    Um excuse me bt cleared the air for who?? The public,the media nd everyone else who questions the religion of his baby?? or him?
    Wow Mr.Khan should feel so ashamed of himself if thts wt he is doing.Coz i thought he showed tht peace nd unity in My name is khan where a muslim man married a hindu girl nd yet they were able to live in peace nd hearmony...well i get wt ur saying its nt the same 4 him as his mental stabilty is 100%,hes rich like there is no tomorrow .
    I believe tht there is one God bt at the same time nt everyone has tht belief and we should respect tht.
    Its higly offense to ppl when u merge those 2 names.But again wht is he trying to prove...
    his child is unity...
    Mr khan is trying to prove so much things with this child first surrogacy then religion..

    Sharukh and Gauri definitely know what they are doing. Kudos for giving a fusion name to the baby.

    Heartiest congratulations to Shahrukh Khan for his third baby. Embarrassed

    About the sex determination issue, I'll say that when it comes to big superstars like SRK, they are hell bent to create such rumours. If he really did that & didn't wish to have a daughter, then he would have never gone around publicly saying to love & respect females!

    But no matter what, we still love you SRK and will always do so. Heart

    Its interesting how people in today's day and age, still worry about spreading religious hatred rather than appreciating this man's effort to accept both the religions under single roof. I am not a big fan of Shahrukh Khan the actor...But I sure as hell respect this man for loving Gauri for who she is, and not making her, and their children chose between the religions, or dividing them based on religion. I appreciate the fact, that he has truly understood the meaning of love, and meaning of real religion=humanity. Salute you dude, AbRam is a wonderful name. And respect your values, and upbringing. Keep it up :) Congratulations for the new born, and wish he prospers to new levels and heights :)

    It's his decision but what type of example he is setting here...he should have opted "hum do hamare do" he has so much wealth he could have adopted 5-6 kids...as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt...he could have given good life to some orphan kids...anyway congrats to him for new addition to his family...
