  • The couple's grieving parents had to file two lawsuits

At the Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, Liu's fertilized embryos sat in a tank of liquid nitrogen, preserved at minus 196 degrees Celsius. As Liu and Shen had no siblings, per the New York Times, their deaths might've meant the end of their family lines-if their parents hadn't intervened.

Xinhua News Agency reported that both Shen's and Liu's parents then embarked on a years-long legal fight for the joint rights to the embryos.

Shen Jie and Liu Xi had been married for two years and chose to go for in vitro fertilization, The Guardian reports.

The court granted the four grandparents-to-be the right over the fertilised eggs. Since no precedent existed, they were eventually granted the embryos.

A baby boy has been born in China to a surrogate mother more than four years after the death of his parents in a auto crash. In December 20-16, the surrogacy service received the embryos, which it drove to Laos in early 20 17. They were killed five days before they were scheduled to transplant one of the fertilized embryos. During her pregnancy, the surrogate mother traveled to Guangzhou, China, on a tourist visa.

He was born in December last year, more than four years after his parents died in March 2013. Their unique case was controversial, since there is now no existing law in China that grants parents of couples inheritance of their children's embryos.

Liu's mother Hu Xinxian told the outlet they named him Tiantian, meaning "sweet". The new grandparents had to carry out DNA tests to prove their relationships to Tiantian and keep custody.
