The Connection

Let us tell you that Rajesh Khattar is Shahid Kapoor's stepfather and Ishaan's birth father. Shahid's mother Neelima Azim was first married to Pankaj Kapoor. After they split, Neelima Azim married Rajesh Khattar. However, due to personal differences, they split in 2001. Rajesh Khattar then married TV actress Vandana Sajnani in 2008 and are now proud parents of a baby boy. In his interview to a Bombay-based newspaper daily, Rajesh shared, "Becoming a father in my 50s is yet another challenge for me. But I am so thrilled to become a father after facing so many difficulties with the pregnancy."

I can't express my happiness. I hope to share my story with every couple trying to get pregnant and are facing troubles not to give up and wait for the moment when it happens. Do not lose hope to become parents, no matter what the age is, as the feeling is just surreal."

Congratulations to the couple!
