Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan, who recently became father of a baby boy via surrogacy, says fatherhood is the most exciting thing.
    
Aamir and wife Kiran Rao's baby boy was born through IVF to a surrogate mother on December 1. They named him Azad Rao Khan after the actor's great grand uncle and freedom fighter Maulana Azad.
    
"It is a great joy to be a father. Both Kiran and I are really overjoyed about the baby being born. It's a real joy... it's a miracle. A baby being born is like a miracle and nothing comes close to it," Aamir said at an event here where he was accompanied by his wife.
    
Aamir loves to play with the new-born. "I tickle up his little toes and then snuggle him... since he is very small so he does not know who I am. But he knows that somebody comes and troubles him every day for two-three hours."
    
"We can't get enough of Azad. For the first time Kiran has stepped out of the house since the baby was born and we are keen on getting back home soon," he said.
    
The 46-year-old actor has a son and a daughter with his former wife Reena.
