Karan Johar has stepped into the magical world of parenthood by fathering twin babies through surrogacy earlier this week. It came as a surprise to the nation and was the most endearing news about the director-producer in a long time. Delightfully enough, he has named his newborns Yash, after his dad and Roohi, an anagram for mother Hiroo – can the whole deal get any more adorable? Maybe when he releases the first look of these babies!
For now, here is how Karan broke the news to the world:

Finally, long time bestie Sharukh Khan had something other than congratulations on his mind. The actor mentioned, “We wish him happiness. It’s still very personal. Don’t think I am being cagey by not answering about it. I have had this moment in my life so I know how personal it is. Let’s respect it and leave it to that. We will have love, celebrations, happiness and health later.”
It’s a wonderful way of expressing happiness without prying into his personal life. We absolutely love the names and cannot wait to see these babies. Powerful decision and good luck on your new journey Karan Johar!
