Shreya Talpade, wife Deepti welcome baby girl via surrogacy

Shreyas Talpade and his wife Dipti are on cloud nine. After 14 years of marriage, the couple turned parents. Due to medical complications, the couple opted for surrogacy and now today their family is complete.

Talking about how it all happened, Shreyas says, “The scheduled day for the baby’s delivery was around 15th or 20th of this month. We had planned a small vacation to Hong Kong on the 7th. But the doctor suggested that the day of delivery might shift to around 10th or 12th. So we decided to go by the 2nd or 3rd and return by the 7th. After we landed in Hong Kong, we got ready, had our lunch and were heading to the cruise terminal since we had planned to go on a cruise. While we were on our way, we got a call from the doctor saying that the surrogate is gone into labour and that we would have to return. We immediately booked a flight on the same day and returned. The baby was born while we were mid-air so we headed directly to the hospital. Our baby has already got both of us wrapped around her little fingers. She is a little stubborn and it feels like she is telling us - ‘Where are you going without me! Come back!’ (smiles).”

When asked about the daughter’s name, Shreyas says, “We have shortlisted a few names but have not decided on a name yet. Friends too have been suggesting us many names further confusing us even more. But we will decide a name for our baby in a day or two.”

Talking about the newborn's look, Shreyas quipped, “I think she looks more like Deepti with her round face but her features are changing every day.”

Congratulations to Shreyas and Deepti. Wishing you both a happy parenthood!
