Surrogacy is a boon in the field of science. It's an arrangement by a legal agreement, whereby a woman (the surrogate mother) agrees to bear a child for another person or persons, who will become the child's parent(s) after birth. The idea is getting quite popular with the new age couples and they have no inhibitions in opting for this treatment any more. Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra are the newest names to join the list of Bollywood celebs who embraced parenthood via surrogacy. The couple was blessed with a baby girl and they decided to name her Samisha.

Speaking of Bollywood and surrogacy together, there have been popular names in the past like Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Aamir Khan and others who prefered surrogacy to welcome their child in this world. Let's have a look at all those names...
