Bollywood actress and well-known model Lisa Ray became the mother of two beautiful kids a few months back. The actress welcomed twin daughters via surrogacy. As per the reports of a leading news portal, Lisa Ray had the two beautiful girls in the month of June in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The diva shared the news with a popular news portal and said, “At the moment, my life is full of cascading emotions, attempting to co-ordinate feeding, napping and play schedules while juggling work, self-care, travel and time with friends, family and my hubby. My life has been full of crazy adventures, but right now, I’m experiencing a new level of anarchy and love. I can’t wait to bring our daughters to our home in Mumbai.”
The former beautiful model took to her Instagram account to share a picture of an article featuring her and wrote, “It’s certainly official. Jason and I have chosen to share the intimate story of our surrogacy journey as a way to normalize and embrace fertility possibilities for everyone. Please do read and share the piece. It’s not easy but achievable. Our luminous daughters Sufi and Soleil are expanding us in ways we never thought possible…and catching me by surprise as I grow into motherhood. Takes a village, and I am grateful for all your love and support(I’m going to be leaning on some of you for mama night outs and baby-sitting backup as I complete my book) Thanks @bombaytimes and @bazinga_ent @aligphoto for the images (and as always @preetasukhtankar for all the support and baby styling ) Stand back world: here comes Soufflé (Sufi plus Soleil equals the best dish in the universe)”
Lisa is very elated about stepping into parenthood and she and her husband was very unhappy when they couldn’t conduct the surrogacy in India, Lisa said, “It has been an arduous and interesting experience. Having been diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2009, which requires me to be on a lifelong dose of medication, pre-empted the possibility for me to carry children myself. Fortunately, technology has progressed where there are choices and new possibilities for having children. My husband and I decided to pursue surrogacy. India was the obvious choice.”
Lisa further added, “We consulted a reputed fertility doctor, but a week before we could begin, India outlawed commercial surrogacy. We were crushed. While I understand the pressing need to regulate the industry and prevent unfairly treatment of surrogate mothers, it was a case of literally throwing out the baby with the bath water. But, I was determined. My husband and I were advised we could continue the process in India and that there were ‘ways’. But we did not want to bring our children into the world under a cloud of uncertainty.”
Many congratulations to the lovely couple!
