On World Prematurity Day, Bollywood actress Celina Jaitly wrote a note about the tragic loss of her baby. Celina tied the knot with hotelier Peter Haag and the two welcomed their first set of twins – Winston and Viraaj – in 2012. Celina again gave birth to twins, Shamsher and Arthur, in 2017, but the first one could not survive.

The Janasheen star penned a note about having suffered the tragic loss. She wrote about “premature birth” being a “very serious health problem” and also added several pictures of Arthur, whom she had previously described as a ‘miracle baby,’ for having survived the loss of his twin and two months in an incubator.

“While nothing can prepare parents for how it feels to have a baby in neonatal care, it can be a huge support to know other families have been where they are now,” Jaitly said and added “We went through immense heartache with one baby in NICU and funeral arrangements for his twin, whom we lost to a congenital heart problem. But we survived on hope and the amazing care of NICU nurses and NICU doctors in Dubai, who worked tirelessly with us to make sure Arthur comes back home.”

She continued, “While many preterm babies still carry a huge vulnerability to medical challenges or life-threatening circumstances, many do grow up to become completely healthy, with some even becoming notable public figures, such as Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein and of course our own Arthur Jaitly Haag. Keep your love and blessings coming for Artu and don’t forget to read up on how you can prevent/support premature babies.”
