Ekta Kapoor has become a mother of a son via surrogacy on January 27, 2019, and has named him Ravie Kapoor, after her father Jeetendra. Jeetendra original name was Ravie Kapoor before he made his Bollywood debut.

Ekta took on to social media to break the news and 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."

Her doctor, Doctor Nandita Palshetkar too gave out details about Ekta and her road of motherhood. "Ekta Kapoor came to me some years back to become a mother. We tried to help her get pregnant with multiple cycles of IUI (Intrauterine insemination) and also multiple cycles of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). But we were unsuccessful. Hence we had to take help of the technique of surrogacy which we performed 9 months back at our Bloom Ivf centre. Nine months later she had achieved success with the birth of a child on Sunday." stated the doctor.

As soon as the news came out, celebrities and fans took to Twitter to wish Ekta for the new chapter in her life. A couple of years back, Ekta Kapoor's brother, Tusshar Kapoor also became a father via surrogacy.

"Ekta is a family-oriented person and has been like a mother to my son Laksshya. This marks the beginning of a new phase in her life, an exciting time of completeness and fulfilment," stated Tusshar.

Here's wishing Ekta and her newborn son all the happiness.
