The best friend is the one, who holds your hand when the road is tough and holds your lehenga when you walk under the phoolon ki chadar all decked up and the same person will make fun of you in front of your kids. Recently, producer, Ekta Kapoor's bestie, Mona Singh proved it right! (Recommend Read: Hrithik Roshan Reveals Why He Is Cordial With Ex, Sussanne, Talks About Dealing With Personal Issues)
For those who don't know, Ekta Kapoor embraced motherhood on January 27, 2019, through surrogacy. She got blessed with a baby boy, who she lovingly named, Ravie Kapoor. Time and again, Ekta shares cute snippets of her life.
On August 6, 2019, Ekta posted a video of her best friend, Mona holding her little baby, Ravie. In the video, the producer can be seen asking her if Ravie looks like her. To which, Mona playfully screams a big 'No'. Ekta captioned the video as, "Dost sach bolte hai!" Take a look at the funny video below:
Ekta wanted to become a mother from the past seven years and had tried various methods over the years, but nothing worked. In one of her Instagram posts, she had thanked her doctor, Nandita Palshetkar, who is an IVF specialist, and shared her quote. She has written, "Thank you doctor Nandita it’s been a 7-year journey! By God's grace, I have seen many successes 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 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 Anupama Chopra, Ekta had shared how she felt when she came to know about her surrogate's pregnancy. She 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 realised that I have a lot of guilt even now."
She 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. The baby is a joint venture. My family has been very supportive throughout, and my brother has also chipped in to share parenting duties."
