Shahid Kapoor's stepfather and Ishaan Khatter's father Rajesh Khattar and his wife Vandana Sajnani welcomed baby boy Vanraj Krishna after 11 years of marriage. In an interview to a leading newspaper, Rajesh Khattar opened up about the struggles and complications he had to face. After 3 miscarriages, 3 IVFs (In Vitro Fertilisation), 3 IUIs (Intrauterine Insemination) and 3 surrogacy failures, Khattar and Sanjnani became proud parents of a baby boy who was born three-months premature. On Janmashtami, the couple brought the baby home.
Rajesh was earlier married to Neelima Azim (who is also Shahid Kapoor's mother) and the couple are proud parents of actor Ishaan Khattar. Talking about fatherhood, Rajesh in an interview said that becoming a father at 50-plus was a challenge as 'babies need energetic parents' but seeing his wife Vandana struggle over the years to have a baby, he didn't 'want to come in her way'. Expressing his joy, Khattar said that his son Vanraj Krishna is the 'most beautiful gift bestowed on us by the Gods'.
Vandana Sajnani also took to her Instagram handle to reveal the big news and also shared a hand-written note and gift that Priyanka Chopra Jonas sent them on the arrival of their baby boy. She wrote that Chopra was among the few who knew about the baby since the beginning. Check out the note she sent -
Vandana Sajnani also spoke about her pregnancy last year and revealed that she was expecting twins but by the end of first trimester, she had complications and was admitted to get her cervix stitched. She called it the 'toughest experience and the most difficult time' of her life. She calls her baby boy a 'miracle baby' because after his birth, he fought for two-and-a-half months in the NICU. Vanraj Krishna Khattar is a combination of their names.
She concluded by saying that without her husband's and family's support, she would have crumbled and is thankful for him being a fabulous father.
