23 years ago, in 1997, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan were blessed with their little bundle of joy, whom they have named Aryan Khan and the couple had embarked on the journey of parenthood. Simi Garewal had brought together Shah Rukh and Gauri for an interview post they became parents for the first time. When Simi had asked Gauri if she wants Aryan to become a super-achiever, the newbie mom had said that she just wants her son to become a good boy. Gauri had shared that she doesn’t want Aryan to become a spoilt brat but was sure that he’s going to be one. Well, we can’t say about Aryan being a spoilt brat, but we can vouch that he has definitely grown up to be a fine man!

While lockdown was mostly about digging up throwback pictures from photo albums and reminiscing those beautiful memories of pre-pandemic days, a few celebs had shared some beautiful memories from their archive and for some, their fan clubs did the work on social media. Gauri Khan had reposted the pictures on her IG stories that her fan clubs had shared. It was in 1991 when Shah Rukh Khan had married his crush, Gauri, and while the former was 26 at that time, the latter was 21-year-old. Reposting a picture from her fan page, Gauri had recalled the earlier days of her marriage and revealed she was already married at her son, Aryan Khan's age. In the picture, Gauri had sported a Harley-Davidson cap, which didn't fit well on her head. Sharing the picture, Gauri had written, “When I was Aryans age and married…!!!! this cap is out of control.”
Aryan Khan turned 23 on November 12, 2020, and his lovely family posted pictures on their IG handles to wish him. Suhana Khan posted a throwback picture from Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday celebration in Dubai to wish her ‘bestie’, Aryan. Suhana posted a lovely picture with Aryan on her IG stories and wrote, “Happy Birthday to my bestie. Jk eww xxx” atop it. Suhana and Aryan’s cousin, Alia Chhiba too, posted a throwback picture from one of their parties in Dubai with the birthday boy. After Suhana and Alia, Gauri showered love on the birthday boy and posted a picture of Aryan chilling and posing with his siblings, Suhana and AbRam. Gauri captioned her post as “Birthday boy.”
To make their ‘happily ever after’ even more fairytale-like and beautiful, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are blessed with two dapper boys, Aryan Khan and AbRam Khan and a gorgeous sunshine, Suhana Khan. When Shah Rukh had turned 54, Gauri had posted a family picture with Aryan, Suhana and AbRam ‘squeezing into one frame’. Gauri had captioned her ‘family in blue’ post with snow-capped mountains reflecting in the mirror in the backdrop as “Squeezing memories into one frame..."

A few days before New Year 2019, Gauri Khan had treated the Khan-fans with a post-card worthy photo with kids, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan. While Gauri, Aryan and Suhana had posed happily for the camera, the little one AbRam was distracted with a pizza slice in his hand. We missed Shah Rukh in the frame to make it a perfect family photograph. Gauri had captioned it as “My three pet designs for 2019 @GkD”. Gauri had captioned another picture of the brother-sister duo, Aryan and Suhana, as “Zooming into 2019 at #GauriKhanDesigns. Seatbelts on please.”
According to a Times Of India report, Shah Rukh Khan had revealed in a throwback interview that when his wife, Gauri Khan had gone into labour for the first time, he had thought that she would die. Gauri had a Caesarean to deliver her firstborn, Aryan Khan and seeing her in so much pain with all the tubes inserted and his wife completely frozen, Shah Rukh was very scared. Shah Rukh doesn’t like being in a hospital as he had lost his parents there, so when he had seen his fragile wife in extreme labour pain, he was scared of losing her forever. Shah Rukh had also said at that moment, he wasn’t thinking of the baby and was just worried about his wife, who was shivering in pain.
