Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber welcomed twins Noah and Asher via surrogacy in 2018. However, it came after a lot of struggle, as the actress revealed that when the surrogacy didn’t work out for the couple, it was “really heartbreaking” for her.
Nisha, a young girl, was also adopted by the couple. The actress recently opened up about having three children in a short period of time, revealing that when surrogacy didn’t work out, they looked into adoption.
With Bollywood Bubble, the actress revealed that surrogacy took her a year and a half in total, and that it was’really heartbreaking’ for her at one point. That’s when they decided to put their names down for adoption.
“It took about a year and a half from start to finish, and surrogacy wasn’t going as planned during that time before we decided, ‘hey, why don’t we just adopt?'” There were six eggs in total, four girls and two boys.”
The actress explained how in America, once you know your gender, you can go ahead and do genetic testing and other things. IVF (in vitro fertilisation) was used in India, but the girls did not become pregnant. The actress admitted that it was a difficult time for her, and she felt like a failure at times. “You’re so depressed and upset about it,” Sunny explained.
Sunny revealed that she and Daniel were visiting the St Catherine’s Home, a Mumbai orphanage, at the time. That’s when she realised why they couldn’t adopt a child because she would still be theirs, albeit not genetically, but through their hearts. “We went there and saw all these babies, and I thought to myself, ‘Why can’t we just adopt a baby?’ What is the distinction? We still have her. We are not genetically related, but we will be linked by our hearts.”
They found out they were having twin boys and a little girl in the same week after they adopted. Sunny told the news portal, “We call that God’s plan.”
