Being a mother is a blissful feeling and nowadays to cherish the feeling of motherhood, one doesn’t need to be married. We have seen many working women opting for adoption and surrogacy to embrace motherhood and they have done it brilliantly. From Sushmita Sen adopting two little angels to Sunny Leone opting for surrogacy and welcoming two wonder boys, to embrace motherhood, one only needs a heart which is filled with love, care, composure and warmth for the child. And Padma Shri, Ekta Kapoor had also welcomed her little munchkin, Ravie Kapoor, through surrogacy on January 27, 2019. And on January 31, 2019, Ekta had taken to her social media handle and had confirmed the news of Ravie’s arrival.

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 but there are always solutions to those 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.”

In an interview with The Times of India, Ekta had shared that she takes Ravie along with her to the office and spends time with him. It is only when there is any problem that she has to go to the sets, otherwise, her team is there to manage things. She was quoted as saying, "Being a working mother, one has to manage things." She had even described Ravie's cute moments and had said, "I checked his chart and got to know that he has a high temper. People think am short-tempered, but he is the one."
In an interaction with film critic, Anupama Chopra, Ekta had talked about the first time she found out that she was going to be a mom and had said, “When I knew that the surrogate had conceived, and it was on June 7. On my birthday I got to know. I was a bit overwhelmed. I was like 'Okay this is happening. This is going to be a huge responsibility. I just wrote a show out which is going to be with an A-list Bollywood actress. It's called Mentalhood. It's about motherhood and every time we did the scripting about the Momzillas and the pressure you go through, the guilt you go through, tiger moms, helicopter moms, I was constantly feeling overwhelmed. But now I have realized that I have a lot of guilt even now.”
Ekta had further added, “I think the first thing you think as a mother is a guilt. I don't think anyone would say that so openly. I am at work, I am feeling guilty, when I am at home, there is a lot of guilt about not completing the things that I used to normally do. So, you are just dealing with various kinds of guilt. Then it's responsibility and third is a feeling that there's someone there that you want to see grow. It's a bit confusing at this moment. It has been 25 days as of now.” Sharing the support of the family for she is a single mom, she had retorted, “The baby is a joint venture. My family has been very supportive throughout, and my brother has also chipped in to share parenting duties.” (Must Read: Unseen Picture Of Radhika Merchant And Nita Ambani Displaying 'Sasu-Bahu' Love Is Pure Goals)
