Adding that he had a close relationship with Alia, Karan said, “I watched her grow from a young kid to a gifted artist and then to this amazing, confident woman. And I’m so proud of myself. She was my first brief experience with parenthood. When she entered my office at age 17, I immediately began to parent. These past 12 years have been fantastic for both of us; she is now 29. She and I have such a close relationship. I’m so excited to have her child in my arms. Similar to the time I held my own children, it will be a highly emotional experience.”
