They Died 4 Years Ago, Just Became Parents

Siah Hwee Ang

But five days before one of the fertilised embryos was due to be transplanted into Liu, the couple died in a auto accident in March 2013 in the Chinese province of Jiangsu.

The tragedy set off a years-long battle in court, as the parents of both Shen and Liu fought to claim the fertilised embryos as their own. Given the legal ambiguity around untransplanted embryos, the group had to look outside the country.

After the accident, the parents of the dead spent a lot of time on trials, they were allowed to use the embryos.

Eventually they found a surrogate in Laos but, according to Time magazine, the eggs had to be transported across the border by vehicle because no airline was willing to take the embryos, which were encased in a thermos of liquid-nitrogen.

The baby, a baby boy, was born in December by a surrogate mother from Laos and the case came out this week from The Beijing News.

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

So, in January 2017, the grandparents traveled to Laos to search for a surrogate mother.

Hu Xingxian, his maternal grandma, who gave him the name Tiantian, or Sweet Sweet. To avoid any citizenship issues, the surrogate was later brought back to China on a tourist visa to give birth.

In another, Tiantian - smiling, wearing a cartoon bib that says "HAPPY" - is about to celebrate his first 100 days, a significant milestone for newborns in China.

After the birth late past year, all four grandparents took DNA blood tests to confirm they were related to the boy.

Tiantian's paternal grandfather told the newspaper that they didn't want to tell the child the truth about his parents until he was older.

They've chose to tell Tiantian his parents are overseas until he is old enough to understand how he was born. They would eventually hire a 27-year-old mother from Laos to carry and deliver the child for them.

He said: "The boy is destined to be sad on his arrival into the world".

"We will definitely tell him in the future - how can we not?"
