Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is in seventh heaven with the arrival of his third child, AbRam. Born through surrogacy and prematurely at seven months, the baby boys' heath is now improving.

Speaking to People magazine about AbRam's health, the 47-year-old actor said, "He is getting better and in another month, he should be physically good. It has been a happy and a sad time. We're not allowed to spend too much time with him, as he lives in a protected environment. Right now that suits me fine".

AbRam was discharged from hospital and brought to Shah Rukh's Bandra residence "Mannat" amid allegations that the celebrity couple determined the sex of the child before birth. Under the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, gender-testing is banned in India.

During the entire sex-determination fiasco Shah Rukh and his family maintained silence until he issued a statement asserting that they did not conduct any test to determine the baby's gender. "Just to put the record straight there was no sex determination for our child. The baby was born much before the speculations of 'sex determination' and other 'issues' pertaining to the same were being raised in the media by some organisations," he said.

During the interview the actor also spoke at length about his wife Gauri. "I think it's very difficult to live with a person like me. So I value her for the crap she takes from me, the lack of time I give her and the kind of person I am. I don't think there are very many people who can live with me. I'm strangely passionate. I'm strangely detached. I'm strangely wonderful. I'm strangely nasty. I'm strangely happy and I'm extremely depressed. I'm strangely schizophrenic. I'm a classic case of being an artist without perhaps having any greatness in my art. So what I appreciate most about her is that she is able to take all this," Shah Rukh told the magazine.

When asked about the recent hug with Salman Khan at a iftar party, the actor said , What I feel for things, which are personal, I can't express them. Things happen, we meet people, we accept them, we love people, we leave people, we meet again and we accept them again. I don't know how to explain this."
