When Shah Rukh Khan feared losing Gauri Khan during the birth of their son Aryan
Shah Rukh Khan is known as the king of romance on-screen and his real-life story with wifey Gauri Khan is what true love stories are made of. The superstar in a throwback interview had shared how he feared losing Gauri during the birth of their first child.
Shah Rukh had already lost his parents and he got extremely scared when Gauri started shivering during the birth of their first son Aryan.
Shah Rukh and Gauri got married in 1991 and they welcomed their first son Aryan in 1997. During the birth of Aryan, Gauri became delirious and was shivering a lot. When she was taken to the operation theatre for Caesarean, Shah Rukh thought he would lose his wife forever.
Back in 1998, speaking about Gauri’s delivery, Shah Rukh in an interview with Rediff shared, “I’ve lost my parents in hospitals — so I don’t like being in hospitals. And Gauri is quite fragile — and I’ve never seen her fall really sick, or seen her unwell. When I saw her in the hospital, they had put in tubes and stuff. And she was becoming delirious and she was really cold. I went with her to the operation theatre for her Caesarean… And (takes a deep breath) I thought she’d die. Didn’t even think about the kid at that point in time. It wasn’t important to me.”

The ‘Main Hoon Na’ actor further added, “She was shivering so much and I know logically that you don’t die while giving birth to babies… But still… (Lost in thought)… I just got a little scared.”
After the birth of Aryan, the couple welcomed a daughter Suhana in 2000. In 2013, they had their third kid AbRam via surrogacy. SRK and Gauri are happily married for almost three decades. They recently celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary.
I wish someday this power couple’s love story is adapted on the silver screen.
