Other than Bollywood Khans, here is a couple from India's well-known lawyer family, who opted for IVF procedure to concieve. Fashion designer Haseena and her lawyer husband, Mahesh, had twins through IVF. The twins were born ten years after their first child. Haseena says, “I think IVF is one of the ways forward for women but most people shy away from it as unfortunately there is a certain stigma attached to being infertile. I’d like to do more for IVF, like reaching out to anyone going through it as it’s an emotionally difficult time.” Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan

There has been a lot of speculation on King Khan and Gauri opting for IVF surrogacy. Recently, a news website carried an article that a top Bollywood couple is using IVF surrogacy to have a child. The report also stated that the couple already have two kids, one of whom is studying abroad. However, Shahrukh and Gauri have stayed mum on this issue.

Well, whatever may be the final outcome of this rumour, yet it is certain that IVF is a medicial blessing for couples who cannot conceive naturally.
