Baby Born 4 Years After Parents Die in Car Crash

В Китае ребенок родился через четыре года после смерти родителей

As surrogacy remains illegal in China, the parents had to seek expert medical help overseas and eventually hired a 27-year-old surrogate mother from Laos to deliver the child.

However, Shen Jie and his wife Liu Xi died in a vehicle accident on Mar 20, 2013, just before a scheduled procedure to transplant the embryos, according to the report.

The boy, called Tiantian - Sweetie in Mandarin - was born in a hospital in China's Guangdong province, "after his grandparents won a year-long court battle to use a frozen embryo".

Baby Tiantian was born in December 2017 in a hospital in Guangzhou, a port city to the northwest of Hong Kong.

A surrogate mother gave birth to the baby boy using a frozen fertilised embryo from the dead couple.

Speaking about the birth of their grandson both sets of grandparents, said they were delighted that their family bloodline can continue and that their children's wishes have been fulfilled.

Following the incident, the couple's parents embarked on a lengthy legal battle to obtain the fertilized eggs, which were being kept at a hospital in Nanjing.

Tiantian's eyes look like my daughter's but overall, he looks more like his father.

The cargo had to be transported to Laos by vehicle, where it was strapped to a seat, because no commercial airline would allow a container of liquid nitrogen on board. The surrogate was shot on the tourist visa into China before the little one was first born.

Although he has no parents, his four grandparents have reportedly proven relations through DNA.

Hu Xingxian, the maternal grandmother, said: "We named her Sweetie, because we hoped her arrival would bring sweetness to us after the bitterness".

Eventually, the future grandparents worked with a surrogacy agency and decided on Laos, a country bordered by Thailand and Vietnam where commercial surrogacy was legal. Shen Xinan, Tiantian's paternal grandfather, mentioned that until the child is older, they will tell him that his parents are overseas.

"For sure we will tell him what happened - what choice do we have?"
