Baby was born four years after the death of his parents

In a remarkable story the parents Shen Jie and his wife Liu XI, have fought a long and arduous battle in order for their attractive grandson to born four years after his parents died in a auto crash.

Tiantian's parents had intended on having a baby through in-vitro fertilization (IFV) and froze several embryos. But five days before they were supposed to have a fertilized embryo transplanted into Liu, both of them passed away in a auto accident in March 2013, in the province of Jiangsu in China.

After the accident, the couple's parents gave a court battle to allow them to use the frozen embryos. Ahead of the little one was first born, the surrogate was taken to China to get the tourist visa. And his name, Tiantian.

The baby named Tiantian was born in China in December to a Laotian surrogate, The Beijing News reported this week.

The child's paternal grandfather Shen Xinan told The Beijing News that until he is older and able to understand the situation, they will tell Tiantian that his parents are overseas.

The child was kept in the hospital for 15 days, until all four grandparents gave blood and DNA tests, establishing the baby was indeed their grandson and that both parents were Chinese nationals.
