  • Not Tiantian's toes

A baby has been born in China to a surrogate mother four years after his real parents died in a auto accident, Chinese media reported.

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

The baby boy's parents, Shen Jie and Liu Xi, had been married for two years before trying IVF treatment to conceive.

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.

But no airline wanted to take a thermos of liquid-nitrogen encased embryos onboard, BBC reports, so the eggs had to be transported across the border by auto.

In Laos, the embryo was implanted in the womb of the surrogate mother, who in December 2017 brought a little boy to the world.

Liu's mother Hu Xinxian told the outlet they named him Tiantian, meaning "sweet".

The newspaper explained how the lack of precedent for a case of this kind had forced the couple's parents to go through a legal minefield before the surrogacy could proceed. The court first gave the parents of the dead couple the right to use the embryos, but only if it could be proved that they would be kept in another hospital.

After the four grandparents won the right to the embryos, a woman from Laos became their surrogate and gave birth to a baby boy this past December.

The new grandparents have not yet decided how they will tell Tiantian about his background. "Other babies have their fathers and mothers, but he doesn't", said his paternal grandfather Shen Xinan.

The mother and father of those deceased bunch repeatedly visited with the hospital in Nanjing at which the frozen embryos have been stored, but senior hospital officials repeatedly denied to meet with them.

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