Karan earlier shares the first glimpse of his kids. He captioned the pic as “I miss my babies!!!! #roohiandyash”
On a chat show, Karan revealed how emotional moment it was for him to hold the babies for the first time in his arms. He said, “When I held them for the first time, I don’t think I can describe the feeling. I cannot explain what I felt. I just sat in the chair and held my daughter first, as she is a little more vulnerable medically. I didn’t even realise there were tears rolling down my face. That feeling cannot be replaced by any other emotion.”
The children were born on February 7 in Mumbai’s Masrani Hospital where Shah Rukh Khan’s third child AbRam was delivered also by a surrogate mother.
