The first pictures of filmmaker Ekta Kapoor holding her newborn are currently going viral on the internet. In the pictures surfacing online, Ekta is clicked with little Ravie Kapoor. However, only his tiny fingers are visible in the photos. Ekta, however, looks radiant as a new mother wearing white and totally exploring the happiness of being a mother. Here are the photos:
Ekta gave birth to Ravie through surrogacy a few days back. The announcement was made on January 31 when the producer announced the baby’s name on Instagram with a lovely post. Media reports suggest that Ekta had been trying to become a mother from IVF and IUI techniques. However, her doctor advised her to opt for surrogacy. Her brother, actor Tusshar Kapoor is also a proud father of a kid, Laksshya Kapoor, born via surrogacy.
Recently, when Ekta’s father and veteran actor Jeetendra was asked to comment on the news, he said that he feels his life is complete now. Talking about the same to Mid-Day, he said, “I was a dada earlier. Now, I have become a nana. My life is complete!”.
He then revealed why the baby has been named ‘Ravie’ with an extra ‘e’. Jeetendra mentioned that the spelling of the name has an extra ‘e’ because the family believes a lot in astrology. He explained, “They wanted an astrologically (favourable) name starting with R, and then Ekta thought why not name him after baba?” On his reaction to the news, he said, “Shobha and I were over the moon when we heard it first. We are looking forward to him coming home. My family says he (Ravie) looks just like me, but then, a child’s looks keep changing every day. It’s tough to say who he will resemble in the future. Now, I have Laksshya and Ravie — they are the apple of my eye. I can die peacefully now as both my babies have their own babies.”
