Always wanted a girl AFTER you had a boy! So typical to want a boy first and if not the first, at least the last after all attempts.

It’s what they choose, if Rangoli had not taken a dig like poison ivy no one would have cared

Doesn't he already has a daughter who he abandoned?

That’s what I was thinking

That’s what I was thinking

To all judgemental and bitter life here asking why they did not adopt, here is my answer - “it’s their CHOICE.”

an adoption is always better than surrogacy.

First pay your emploees

Whose girl is that? That girl is not as dark as her parents.

Raj has a daughter from first marriage - he should have taken care of her

They had money to place an order for a human and they did.

It's their choice

they cold have adopted they already have a biological child . why go to these lengths to bring another child into this world ?

Simple. Because they want to have another child. How can you impose your views as criticism on everyone else? Their life, their wish, their choice.

Well said .Life is about choices.each their own .Bless the little one ,she has been born in bleesed home..

You can adopt 2. Simple.

Their choice
