BOLLYWOOD Producer Ekta Kapoor has embraced motherhood through surrogacy and has welcomed her baby boy. It’s believed that Ekta was extremely keen to carry her own child, but that couldn’t be possible. Dr Nandita Palshetkar, who guided Ekta throughout the process reveals, “Ekta came to me a few years ago. 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 the help of surrogacy and now, nine months later, she’s achieved success with the birth of a child.
The baby boy, born on Sunday, January 27, has been named Ravie Kapoor after Ekta’s father. Sources close to Ekta reveal that, “She was keenly involved in the entire process. She would take constant updates about the mother and baby’s health at every stage from the doctor. It was her pure determination to become a mother that made this happen.” Ekta is India’s first celebrity single mother to have a baby through surrogacy. A couple of years ago, her brother, Tusshar had also became a father via surrogacy.
