Do not insult Shakuntalaa. A son born of one's own semen takes his father from Yam Lok to Swarg Lok. He is your son. Shakuntalaa has told you the truth."

Bharat had three wives and had nine sons from them, but Bharat said - "They are not like me"; lest Bharat leaves them, their mothers killed them. Then Bharat did Marutsom Yagya with the desire of a son. At its completion Marud Gan gave him Bharadwaaj named child as his son who was born from Brihaspati's semen established in the womb of Utathya's wife Mamataa and was delivered by Deerghatamaa Muni by hitting his foot.

This Shlok is said about naming this boy - "After the son was delivered, Brihaspati said to Mamataa - "This son is born 'Dwaaj' (from both of us), therefore you bring him up (Bharan Karo)"; then Mamataa said - "Hey Brihaspati, This son is born 'Dwaaj", you bring him up". Thus arguing both parents went away, that is why he was named as Bharadwaaj." Because the birth of sons got failed and Marud Gan gave Bharadwaaj that is why he was called Vitath also.
