Bollywood director Karan Johar is said to have become the father of twins, a boy and a girl, through surrogacy.
According to a report in the Times of India, the babies were born in Mumbai's Masrani Hospital on February 7. The births were registered on Friday, according to Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) Executive Health Officer Dr Padmaja Keskar.
The children were reportedly registered in the birth record as a "baby boy" and a "baby girl." The babies' names are Yash and Roohi, as Karan Johar clarified in a tweet earlier today.

Interestingly, Karan Johar's close friend Shah Rukh Khan also had his third child AbRam born in the same hospital via a surrogate.
Johar in his recently released autobiography, The Unsuitable Boy, had written that he wanted to either adopt or have a surrogate child.
"I don't know what I'm going to do about it but I feel like I would like to be a parent. I don't know how it's going to happen but I do feel the need because I have plenty of love to offer and I'd like to take it forward. This feeling needs a release and requires a platform. And that platform could be by being a parent," Karan had said during the launch of his book.
However, the director is yet to issue and official statement.
Not long ago, Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor also became a single parent to baby boy Lakshay, through surrogacy.
