Parenthood, whether biological or not, is a blessing. In the past, adoption and surrogacy have always prompted uncomfortable questions. Thankfully, the stigma has faded, and we can now also admire the celebrities for it. Many of them have aided in filling the void and inspiring others to have a child through surrogacy or adoption. Several television personalities have turned to surrogacy and adoption to experience the joys of parenthood. Take a peek at:
1) Sanjeeda Shaikh and Aamir Ali
While Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Shaikh are no longer together, but through surrogacy, they have a daughter, Ayra Ali, who turned two last year. The couple decided to keep the birth of their child a secret until 2020. Now, the couple frequently posts gorgeous pictures of their baby on their social media accounts. Sanjeeda has been handed custody of Ayra.
2) Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary
Another television couple who has adopted children is Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee. In 2017, they adopted two sisters, Pooja and Lata. After realizing that the little girls were forced to work as a domestic help after their father died, they decided to adopt them. They’ve been living happily ever after ever since. “The general perception is that you only adopt if you can’t have children of your own,” Gurmeet said in an interview. “That isn’t the case at all. Debina and I both like children and hope to have a few of our own in the future. When they arrive, they will be Pooja and Lata’s siblings, and Choudhary will be able to live contentedly under one roof.”
