Heaps of khushiyan are pouring in for the Kapoor family as Ekta Kapoor became a mother to a baby boy, Ravie Kapoor through surrogacy on January 27, 2019, and we can’t wait to see his full-face picture! Ravie is the second child in the Kapoor lineage as Tusshar Kapoor has already been blessed with a baby boy, Laksshya Kapoor on June 2016. And what could be deciphered from Ekta’s social media posts, the entire family is on cloud nine with loads of things lined-up in the months to come.

In this regards, Ekta Kapoor’s brother, Tusshar Kapoor is riding high on the pillion of professional and personal gain. The actor will soon be seen alongside Mallika Sherawat in his very first digital debut in ALTBalaji titled Booo-Sabki Phategi. Other than that, there is an insurmountable amount of happiness in becoming a mamu for the first time. In an interview with SpotboyE, the Golmaal star revealed it all.
About newborn Ravie, Tusshar expressed his happiness and was quoted as saying, “Ravie is the second child in the family and it’s a joy. Honestly I haven't got much time to spend with my nephew as I was stuck with my work but tomorrow onward I can spend time with him and play. Frankly, I just can't wait for that moment.” He also shared that Ekta is devoting a lot of time to her newborn son, “Of course. Ekta is spending a lot of time with her son. It sounds odd for me to call her Ekta's son (laughs). It’s a new thing which I need to get used to. I just waiting for him to start crawling and grow up so that I can play with him even more.”
A few days back, Ekta had shared a picture of ‘big brother’, Laksshya keeping a watch over his baby brother. Sharing the picture, she had captioned it as, “When is he going to get up and play with me?” Tusshar too spoke about the same and shared, “He is very happy in fact, the whole day he just keeps inquiring about him. Like, Bhai kya kar raha hai? Bhai so raha hai kya? Abhi kahan hai. Whole time he is just talking about him.”
Does Ravie have a nickname? Mamu Tusshar revealed in the same interview, “Right now we are just addressing him as baby. But I am sure with time when I will start playing with him and talking new nicknames will come to our mind.” The Yeh Dil actor also spoke about Ekta performing the newbie role of a mother and stated, “I think that is something she only has to get used to--- and she will eventually.” Tusshar also feels that he might have inspired Ekta to opt for surrogacy, “Ravie (Son) was her own decision but I may have inspired her; I might have been the catalyst.” (Must Read: Karan Johar Plans This On Yash And Roohi Johar's Second Birthday Tomorrow, Here's The Guest List)
Tusshar Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s star father, Jeetendra is super-cool with the whole institution of marriage. The legendary actor had once stated “Marriage is not a compulsion for you [Tusshar] and Ekta.” Speaking about the same, Tusshar shared, “Yeah, I think there is no compulsion today. There are a lot of marriages which are successful, then there are marriages that are not successful. Basically, you have to be clear what you want. I was clear that I want a child even if I am married or not so I have one. I still believe in institution of marriage. I might get married. I can't predict when, how? Actually I don't have a deadline now as my life is complete. And I completely believe in 'Never say Never'.”
Expressing his ecstasy upon his daughter embracing motherhood, Jeetendra had shared with Mid-Day, “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.”
