New Delhi:

Choreographer-director Farah Khan recently spoke about her journey to motherhood. She also opened up about the challenges and joys of giving birth to triplets via IVF in 2008 with her husband Shirish Kunder. In a conversation with Nova IVF FertilityFarah Khan shared how she turned to manifestation while reading The secret, hoping for a pregnancy after struggling to conceive naturally. Farah said she and Shirish had already chosen names for their children before learning they were expecting triplets. She shared, “Me and Shirish started talking about kids and what we want to name them and what they will be like and all that. When the doctor called, I was 100 percent sure we were going to get pregnant and she said, ‘Listen, Farah, don’t jump too high. I want you to be calm. You are pregnant, but don’t get your hopes up too much, but they are multiple pregnancies.”

Farah Khan opened up about the shock of discovering her multiple pregnancies and the difficult decision she faced due to her age. On her doctor’s advice to “downsize” one child due to the risks associated with her age, Farah said she bravely chose to go ahead with the triplets, giving her three bundles of joy in 2008: Tsar, Anya and Diva. days she (the doctor) called me and she said it was triplets, and I said, ‘Haan, I just knew doctor.’ Of course we were too excited and the doctor gave us a reality check and said we would have to reduce one, because normally most twins start out as triplets. She said you’ll be 43 when the kids come and that’s not good for you. Your stomach is great, your lining is great, but three children is a big risk and one child can be very small,” Farah said.

Farah Khan opened up about the playful banter in her household as her children jokingly teased her about the doctor’s advice to ‘reduce’ one of them. Farah revealed: “The doctor gave me the worst-case scenario, but I thought, ‘Doctor, tell me what you need, how big you want each child to be.’ So she said they should safely weigh two kilos each. I said I’d make sure they top that. You won’t believe my kids weighed two and a half kilos each. So I was literally carrying seven and a half kilos … half kilos and wandering around. I was like, I’m not going to reduce one child, and now my kids have games like, ‘You should have reduced that child, the doctor said you should have removed one child.'”
