Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover have revealed that their daughter Devi Basu Singh Grover, was born with two holes in her heart.
In a chat with Neha Dhupia on Instagram Live, Bipasha said that Devi had to undergo surgery when was three months old after being diagnosed with VSD [ventricular septal defect]. She stated, “Our journey has been very different from any normal mother-father, it has been a lot tougher than the smile that I have on my face right now. I would not wish this to happen to any mother. For a new mother, when you get to know that…I got to know on the third day of me having a baby that our baby is born with two holes in her heart. I thought I’ll not share this, but I’m sharing this because I feel that there are a lot of mothers, who helped me in this journey, and it was very difficult to find those mothers… ”
She further added, “We [Bipasha and Karan Singh Grover] didn’t even understand what a VSD is. It is a ventricular septal defect…We went through a crazy period. We didn’t discuss this with our family, we both were in a little bit of a blur. We wanted to celebrate but we were a little numb, me and Karan.”

Describing the journey, she said, “The first five months have been very difficult for us. But Devi has been fabulous from day one. We were told that every month, we have to do a scan to know if it’s healing on its own. But with the kind of large hole that she had, we were told that it was doubtful, you will have to go through surgery. And the surgery is best done, when the child is three-months-old.”
