Karan Johar's newborns are finally set to come home. The babies were discharged from Surya Children’s hospital in Juhu on Wednesday afternoon after spending more than a month in the hospital. The twins, — Yash and Roohi — born prematurely via IVF on February 7 were in neonatal intensive care unit all these days. The news of their arrival however, made its way out only on the March 5, after which Karan Johar put out a long post on Twitter. They are 37 weeks old now.

Daddy dearest we hear, has planned a big party to welcome the two and has elaborately decked up the rooms the little ones will occupy.                                  

 

Speaking to The Asian Age, Dr Bhupendra Avasthi, Surya Hospital, said, “The twins were born two-and-a-half months early weighing 1.5 kg. Due to their weight, the babies needed special care. At the time of discharge, they were healthy and weighed normal.”  Elaborating on the complexities of premature birth he continued, “Premature babies are critical compared to normal since their vital body parts such as lungs, digestive system, immune system and skin are underdeveloped.”

The twins were conceived via IVF. Johar had written on social media then, “I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines; Roohi and Yash. I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science.”
