When in January 2019, Ekta Kapoor had welcomed a baby boy via surrogacy and had named him, Ravie Kapoor after her father, Jeetendra a.k.a., Ravi Kapoor, the elated grandfather had expressed his feelings in an interview with the Mid-Day. The proud grandfather of two 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.”
Ekta’s brother and actor, Tusshar Kapoor had also embraced fatherhood through surrogacy and has a son whom the family had lovingly named, Laksshya Kapoor. In an interview to Firstpost, Jeetendra had said that it doesn’t matter if one is married or single, what matters is to be happy in life. He had elaborated, "I believe one must be happy in life. (It doesn't matter) whether you are married or single. For me, the idea was that Tusshar and Ekta should have someone to come back home to. A baby is the biggest blessing and responsibility to have. With responsibility comes to passion, love, happiness and a purpose in life. There cannot be a bigger responsibility than taking care of a baby."
