Celina Jaitly Gives Birth To Twin Boys, One Of Whom Passes Away
Celina Jaitly welcomed her second set of twins into the world on September 10 but revealed on Saturday that the arrival ‘bittersweet’ for her as one of the babies couldn’t survive. The actor also had two five-year twin sons Winston and Viraaj, with businessman husband Peter Haag.
The official Facebook page of the actor posted a statement from her late Saturday. “Announcing the bittersweet arrival of our 2nd set of twins,” it read. “When it rains look for rainbows, when it’s dark look for stars... My dearest friends, beloved fans and followers. On the auspicious occasion of Dusshera we would like to take this opportunity to share with you all the following bittersweet news,” she wrote.
The actor also revealed the names of her two new sons as Arthur and Shamsher. “The Gods above have blessed us yet again with another set of very handsome twin boys ‘Arthur Jaitly Haag’ and ‘Shamsher Jaitly Haag’ in Dubai on 10th September 2017,” she wrote. “However, life is not always how we plan it to be. Our son ‘Shamsher Jaitly Haag’ succumbed to a serious heart condition and could not continue his journey in this world,” she added.
Celina wrote that Shamsher couldn’t survive due to serious heart conditions. “
Heartbreaking as that is we are very fortunate that a part of him still lives with us through Arthur, whose face will always remind us that an angel who looks exactly like him looks upon us from the arms of his grandfather, my father, in the heavens above, whom we also lost two months ago.
The last two months have been a tumultuous journey for us from loosing my beloved father and now baby Shamsher, however there is always a light at the end of a tunnel, and that light for us is our handsome son ‘Arthur Jaitly Haag’ who seeks your blessings and love in his journey that he commences in this world. We thank you all in advance for your love and continued support,” she wrote to her fans in the statement which was signed in both her and her husband’s name.
Celina lost her father in July and was full of regrets on not being able to meet him one last time. “I couldn’t reach in time to hear his voice one last time. That’s a regret and guilt I’ll live with all my life. No matter how much you think you are prepared for the inevitable, you are never ready for a parent’s loss. Even if you know it’s coming, the shock and disbelief are still unbearable,” she had said.
The actor was also crowned Miss India in 2001 and went on to star in films like No Entry and Janasheen.
