Being a mother is one of the beautiful phases of a woman’s life. And gone are the days when a woman could attain motherhood only when she is married. Thanks to the advanced technology, a strong and independent woman need not wait to get the perfect partner to fulfil her dream of attaining motherhood. The queen of television, Ekta Kapoor had chosen surrogacy to embrace motherhood and has proven that if there is a will, then there is definitely a way.

It was on January 27, 2019, when Ekta had welcomed her first child, Ravie Kapoor through surrogacy. And just like her brother, Tusshar Kapoor, Ekta had also opted for single parenting. And more than Ekta, it was her brother, Tusshar, and nephew, Laksshya Kapoor, who were excited to welcome the little cotton ball. Ekta’s motherly instincts were quite visible when she had become a bua to Laksshya. She would often share pictures and videos of her nephew giving a glimpse of their adorable bond.
On May 12, 2020, Ekta Kapoor took to her Instagram handle and shared an adorable video of Laksshya Kapoor. In the video, Laksshya was seen giving a flower to his bua, Ekta and in return, Ekta asks him, ‘Lakku, why are you so handsome?’ She further asks Laksshya whether she is invited for his birthday and the little munchkin gives a hilarious reply. Along with the video, Ekta wrote, “The handsomest boy I know. Fellow Gemini! Older son and a boys boy! Need to teach him girls are not to be ’sitting separate’ but I think in. Time he will learn on his own! He after all has d best parenting from his model parent...dad!”
After 3 months of embracing motherhood, Ekta Kapoor had posted the first-ever glimpse of her ‘whole world in one frame’ with brother, Tusshar Kapoor’s son, Lakshya Kapoor and her baby Ravie Kapoor cuddled in his mommy's arms! In the picture, Lakshya could be seen seated in the corner of the sofa, while mommy, Ekta had clicked a selfie, with her little baby in her arms! Sharing the pictures of her ‘sun and moon’, Ekta had written, “My boys! Two sons!! #mysunandmoon.” (Also Read: Irfan Pathan Flaunts His Hair-Styling Talent As He Cuts His Son, Imran's Hair Amidst Lockdown)
In February 2019, Ekta Kapoor had posted a picture that had a gleeful Laksshya Kapoor, keeping a watch on how his baby brother, Ravie Kapoor is doing, who was sleeping peacefully in his white cot. Bua-cum-mommy Ekta Kapoor had captioned the picture as, “Big brother is watching!!!”
Ekta Kapoor’s parents, Shobha Kapoor and Jeetendra were on cloud nine after Ravie was born as their family is now complete! Sharing about the same with Mid-Day, the legendary actor had stated, “Shobha and I were over the moon when we heard it first. We are looking forward to him coming home. Our family makes daily rounds of the suburban hospital where the baby is currently under supervision. 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."
In an interview with Anupama Chopra, Ekta Kapoor had opened up about being a single mother to her Ravioli (as she lovingly calls her son) and opting for surrogacy. She had shared, “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.” (Also Read: Mansi Sharma Of 'Uttaran' Embraces Motherhood, Elated Daddy, Yuvraj Shares The Baby's Arrival News)
