Bepannaah actor Rajesh Khattar has embraced fatherhood again at the age of 53. Rajesh Khatter and his wife Vandana Sajnani. Rajesh and Vandana have been married for 11 years and have been trying to conceive ever since. The duo welcomed a son two-and-a-half-months ago but kept it under the wraps. The little angel had been fighting for his life in NICU and on the occasion of Janmashtami, the two brought their bundle-of-joy home. Rajesh revealed that they were expecting twins but due to some complications, they lost one of them. But they have overcome the pain and are focusing on their newborn son.
Rajesh told BT, "For me, becoming a father at 50-plus was another challenge, but then, I am neither the first one, nor the last in this category.” Vandana, actress and theatre producer, says, “After a lot of hardships — three miscarriages, three IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) failures, three IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) failures and three surrogacy failures — over the last 11 years, we have reached here. I can’t express my joy. I want to tell my story because it will inspire couples to keep the faith and not give up hope, whatever their age is.”

"I was carrying twins and I was the happiest woman in the world. But by the third month, I was told to stitch my cervix. I was admitted to the hospital and was there with my legs up for three months, absolutely immobile. That was the toughest experience and the most difficult time of my life. Everything took a toll on me and I felt like I was having a breakdown. I prayed for strength and whatever the hardships, I knew I had to fight it out. I did not give up! What mattered was my child; the pain was nothing in front of this miracle baby, who fought for two-and-a-half months in the NICU" Vandana added further.
Vandana went on to reveal that she and Rajesh have named "We have named him Vanraj Krishna Khattar; Vanraj is a combination of our names." Rajesh shares Ishaan Khatter with Neelima Azeem and Shahid Kapoor is his step-son.
