Baby is born in China four years after parents died in car crash

A baby of a Chinese couple who died more than four years ago has been born to a surrogate mother.

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

According to the Beijing News, husband and wife Shen Jie and Liu Xi were planning in vitro fertilization but died in a auto crash in March 2013, just five days before the scheduled transplant.

The biological parents had embryos frozen that they hoped would one day become their children.

. The first lawsuit was unsuccessful, with the court deeming that fertilized embryos "cannot be transferred or inherited" (Beijing News), but the second one granted the families custody.

To ensure Chinese citizenship for the baby Tiantian, the surrogate travelled to China, and gave birth there on a tourist visa. After the accident, their parents fought a protracted legal battle to be allowed to use the embryos.

In Laos, the embryo was implanted into the womb of the surrogate mother who finally gave birth to a boy in December 2017.

"His eyes look like my daughter's", Ms. Hu told Beijing News.

A baby boy has been born in China to a surrogate mother more than four years after the death of his parents in a vehicle crash.

In lieu of a large, ostentatious banquet, however, Tiantian's grandparents held a smaller affair, according to the Beijing News.

Shen Xinnan, the father of Shen Jie, was quoted as saying that he only plans to tell the boy what happened to his parents when he is older and in the meantime will say they are living overseas.

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.

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

Liu was killed right away; Shen died five days later, reports said.
