Ajay Devgn and Kajol have named their new born son Yug. It is taken
from Sanskrit word Yug, meaning 'life" or 'being". It also means
'eternity" or 'era".
Kajol gave birth to a baby boy on September 13. The couple has a
seven-year-old daughter named Nysa, named after the goddess of
beauty in Greek mythology.
It is reported that Kajol has stored her umbilical cord blood
and cord tissue with a Chennai-based 'cord blood bank' Life Cell
Umbilical cord blood is a source of primitive, undifferentiated
stem cells (of type CD34-positive and CD38-negative). These cord
blood cells can be used in treating various diseases like
leukaemia, lymphoma, blood cancer and bone marrow disorders. Cord
tissue contains mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which create
structural and connective tissue. It can treat injuries including
spinal cord, stroke, and cartilage damage.
