The star filmmaker of Bollywood has finally become a dad. He will be now mentoring his very own toddlers instead of talented stars back on the sets. Karan Johar brought home his babies, whom he fathered through a surrogate– Yash and Roohi this Wednesday after they spent a long time at the neo natal care department at Masrani Hospital For Women And Mimas, Vile Parle.

The twins, one boy and a girl, were prematurely conceived and hence required the strict supervision of Bhupendra Avasthi, the director of the hospital, before they could be discharged. “The children were admitted on February 7. They were born premature at 30 weeks. They are now 37 weeks old. Today was the 50th day of their admission to the hospital,” a source said. Probably that is why when Karan finally brought home the babies, he thought to take it slow. Allowing only a couple of friends every day, lest the kids be in the danger of infection, Karan has invited Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra and a handful others to show off his loves of life.

The latest to join the club are Shahid Kapoor and Gauri Khan who visited the new dad at his house in Mumbai. Both the stars were seen happy and congratulated the director heartily. Here are a few pictures from the outing.

In the HT Brunch column for this month, Karan revealed, “She(Gauri) is there for us quietly, seamlessly and without burdening anyone with her presence by making them feel obligated by her. She sometimes may not have the actions to prove it but her presence has always been spectacularly soothing in every dramatic or crisis-laden situation in my life. Every time my mother’s been in and out of the hospital with major back and spinal injuries, whether it was morning, afternoon or evening, Gauri was there. I would ask her, “Why are you still here? Go home” and she would say, “What am I doing? I just want to be here,” That quiet strength is what defines her.”

It is no news that Gauri Khan and Karan Johar are buddies and in fact quite close ones at that. What’s more, Gauri Khan has actually designed the nursery for the twins!

So Gauri being there for Karan Johar even now is quite expected. As for the dad himself, he is busy dotting over his darlings and is even playing some select music for them. “I have grown up listening to lot of Hindi film music whether it is Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle among others. “I want in their (twins’s) nursery; some of my favourite music should play all the time,” said Johar. Well we are sure that these two babies are two of the luckiest with such an adorable and loving father.
