Good news is coming in heaps and bounty for Ekta Kapoor and her family. Riding high on the pillion of professional and personal high these days, Ekta Kapoor became a mother to her first child, Ravie Kapoor, born to her through surrogacy. As per reports, the little munchkin was born on January 27, 2019, and ever since, the newbie mommy is on cloud nine!

From decorating the house for baby Ravie’s welcome, writing chirpy posts which expresses her state of mind, to tumults of TV stars pouring in their wishes for the newborn, all that we want to see now, is a close-up of Ravie. And also, how are Ravie and his big brother (Tusshar Kapoor’s son) faring. Looks like Ekta has read our minds and gave us all a pictionary glimpse of a ‘bro moment’ of the two Kapoor kiddoes.
A recent picture posted by the Naagin producer owing to the same, is enough to make our hearts melt on a Monday morning. The picture has a gleeful Laksshya, keeping a watch on how his baby brother is doing, who is sleeping peacefully in his white cot. One glipmse at Laksshya and you will see the look on his face which says, “When is he going to get up and play with me?” Bua-cum-mommy Ekta Kapoor captioned the picture as, “Big brother is watching!!!” Here is the picture:
Adorable, isn’t it? It was Ekta Kapoor’s mother, Shobha Kapoor’s 70th birthday on February 01, 2019, and on account of the same, Ekta shared a picture of her mother and wrote a heartfelt note for her indicating that she gave her the best birthday gift ever, by gifting her Ravie Kapoor! The Kumkum Bhagya producer wrote, “Happie bday to my boss! U cannot deny that on your 70th I’ve given d best bday gift to u! And I cannot deny that now I’m RULED BY TWO AQUARIANS.” (Must Read: Genelia D'Souza Shares A Heartfelt Note For Husband Ritesh Deshmukh On Their 7th Wedding Anniversary)
Needless to say, Shobha Kapoor and her hubby, Jeetendra are on cloud nine as their family is now complete! Sharing about the same with Mid-Day, the legendary actor and second time daadu 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."
Ekta took to Instagram on January 31, 2019 and announcing the good news to all her fans wrote, “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."
She also shared how her doctor, Dr Nandita Palshetkar guided her during the entire process, and posted a quote from her which could be read as, “Ekta came to me some years back to become a mother. We tried to help her get pregnant with multiple cycles of IUI and also multiple cycles of IVF. But we were unsuccessful. Hence, we had to take help of the technique of surrogacy which we performed nine months back at our Bloom IVF centre. Nine months later, she had achieved success with the birth of a child on Sunday.”
Ekta’s pictures on her social media account with nephew, Laksshya Kapoor suggest how much she loves children. In a throwback interview, Ekta had shared, “I am a human being who recovered from a lot of pain last year because of my nephew. I had many professional ups and downs last year. Television did very well but films did not and that is very in your face because everyone knows it did not do well. So, it just hits you more. But my nephew would just suck out every bit of tension from me. People, when they used to talk about their children, their eyes would light up. And he is not even my own child, he is my nephew but it is magical. A magic happens when a child comes to a house and as a kid grows, you grow with them and the small things become the big things.” (Also Checkout: Kareena Kapoor Khan Gives A Kiss Of Love To Soha Ali Khan's Daughter Inaaya, Video Inside)
