After years of expressing a desire of fathering a child, producer-director Karan Johar has become a proud parent of twins, a report in Mumbai Mirror says.

According to the report, the director opted for surrogacy and now is a father to a son and a daughter.

Johar's twins, who he has named, Yash (after his late father) and Roohi (a re-arrangement of his mother, Hiroo's name) were born in February, although the exact date is not known.

They were delivered by Dr. Makrand Masrani in the Masrani Hospital in Andheri.

While Johar is yet to make a statement, the Mirror report was confirmed by a senior official from the BMC, the body responsible for issuing birth certificates.

Johar is not the first to have a child via IVF in Bollywood.

Recently, Tusshar Kapoor became a single father to a boy, Lakkshya.

Shah Rukh Khan too opted for surrogacy for his third child, AbRam while Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao had their son, Azad Rao Khan, through the same procedure.
