Ekta Kapoor welcomed a baby boy through surrogacy on January 27. A while back, the TV czarina took to her Twitter to announce the name of her little munchkin. Ekta named her son Ravie Kapoor after her father Jitendra whose real name is Ravi Kapoor.
Ekta took to her Twitter to share the news and wrote, “Please send your love and blessing for li’l Ravie. Jai Mata Di! Jai Balaji.” She shared this along with a heartfelt message that read, “By God’s grace, I have seen many success in my life, but nothing beats the feeling of this beautiful soul being added in my world. I cannot even begin to express how happy my baby’s birth has made me. Everything in life doesn’t go the way you want it to be but there are always solutions to these hiccups. I found mine and today I feel immensely blessed to become a parent. It is an emotional moment for me and my family and I can’t wait to begin this new journey of being a mother to my little bundle of joy, Ravie Kapoor”.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Ravie is absolutely healthy and will be home soon. Ekta has been trying to get pregnant for seven years and is finally blessed with a boy. She even went through multiple IVF sessions. Thanking her doctor Dr. Nandita Palshetkar, she wrote, “Thank you doctor Nandita it’s been a 7-year journey!.”.
Ekta is not the first one in her family to welcome a baby through surrogacy. Three years ago, her brother Tusshar Kapoor also welcomed his little munchkin Laksshya Kapoor, through surrogacy.
Talking about why he decided to be a father, Tusshar earlier had told The Indian Express, “I was thinking about it for some time before I finally had the baby because I was running out of time. I am not married yet. I may or may not in the future. I felt the time was running out fast and I couldn’t wait to have a family, have a child. That’s something I won’t be able to do as I grow older. I can always get married. That’s why I decided to become a single parent.”
