Choreographer Farah Khan is a mother of triplets who are currently 12 years old. For those who don’t know, Farah Khan embraced motherhood at the age of 43 via IVF. Becoming a mother at such a later stage of life and that too with some unconventional method is still considered a taboo in our society. However, Farah did what she thought was right for her. And now, at the age of 55, she has opened up about the same.
In an open letter posted on social media, Farah said, “I became a mother when I was ready for it, not when the society deems “the appropriate age to conceive.” Thanks to advancements in science, I was able to do it via IVF at my age.”
She further said, “As a daughter, wife and a mother, I’ve had to make many choices because of which I have become the choreographer, filmmaker and producer that I am. Every time I felt the moment was right, I listened to my gut and seized it. Whether it was for my career or for my family. We think about people’s judgements so much, we forget that it’s our life and it’s our call!”
Farah wrote in her caption, “Our choices make us. I became an IVF mom at 43 and I am glad I did so. I wish a great motherhood to all women out there who want to be mothers – naturally or otherwise.”
Undoubtedly, Farah has set an example for thousands of women. Be it her career or her personal life, the choreographer has lived the life on her own conditions.
