A baby boy was born to a surrogate mother in China four years after his biological parents died in a vehicle crash, local news outlets reported on Tuesday (Apr 10).

The child's parents, Shen Jie and Liu Xi, were married for two years when they made a decision to try in-vitro fertilization, The Guardian reported. 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.

For the next three years, the parents of the couple fought a legal battle to be allowed use of the embryo. Given the legal ambiguity around untransplanted embryos, the group had to look outside the country. A surrogate mother from Laos gave birth to the child in December, according to media reports.

According to South China Morning Post, the grandparents were overjoyed that Tiantian finally made it into the world after years of stuggle and will continue on their bloodline.

The four grandparents-in-waiting eventually made a decision to enlist the services of a surrogacy agency in Laos, where it is legal.

He was born in December last year, more than four years after his parents died in March 2013.

The newspaper explained how the lack of precedent for a case of this kind had forced the couple's parents to go through a legal minefield before the surrogacy could proceed.

When they were killed the embryos were frozen at -196C in a liquid nitrogen tank in a hospital in Nanjing.

She gave birth to Tiantian in China while visiting on a tourist visa, ensuring the boy's citizenship.

In another, Tiantian - smiling, wearing a cartoon bib that says "HAPPY" - is about to celebrate his first 100 days, a significant milestone for newborns in China.

When the child was born, the grandparents were also required to take paternity tests to prove they were, in fact, Tiantian's relatives, but the extraordinary effort was worth it. "Other babies have their fathers and mothers, but he doesn't", said his paternal grandfather Shen Xinan. We will definitely tell him in the future.
