Baby was born four years after the death of his parents

The baby’s grandparents had to undergo DNA tests to prove their relationship with the newborn and secure his custody
As surrogacy remains illegal in China, the parents had to seek expert medical help overseas and eventually hired a 27-year-old surrogate mother from Laos to deliver the child.
His late parents had been undergoing fertility treatment before their death in a road accident in East China's Jiangsu province. The baby was born to a surrogate from Laos on December 9, after years of battles between the court and his grandparents over the frozen embryos.
The tot was born after an embryo was placed in a surrogate, following years of legal disputes over whether it could be used.
When they were killed the embryos were frozen at -196C in a liquid nitrogen tank in a hospital in Nanjing.
The lawsuit brought up several legal issues, such as whether or not embryos were considered living beings, whether the grandparents had the right to dispose of the embryos and how to give life to the embryos through surrogacy, which is illegal in China.
Speaking about the birth of their grandson both sets of grandparents, said they were delighted that their family bloodline can continue and that their children's wishes have been fulfilled.
The parents of the couple fought for three years for the rights to the four remaining embryos their deceased kids had left, in a complex and unprecedented legal case in the country, Beijing News said. No airline would carry the embryos, which were encased in a thermos containing 196°C (385°F) liquid nitrogen, so the trip was taken by vehicle.
Getting the citizenship of the child, named Tiantian, proved to be another hurdle as he was born in China and not Laos, with the surrogate travelling there on a simple tourist visa.
"The eyes are like my daughter, but still a little more like his father", the baby's maternal grandmother, Hu Xingxian, told the Beijing News. We will definitely tell him in the future.
The new grandparents have not decided how they will tell the boy about the circumstances of his birth.
