Jeetendra’s bungalow decked up, Ekta named her newborn Ravie Kapoor

Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor’s producer daughter Ekta Kapoor welcomed a baby boy via surrogacy. Their bungalow Krishna was decked to welcome the newborn. The baby was born on January 27th. Ekta Kapoor named her son Ravie Kapoor after the original name of her father Jeetendra. Jeetendra’s original name was Ravir Kapoor but after entering Bollywood, he has changed his name.

“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,” she said in a statement.

Ekta’s doctor informed that before opting for surrogacy, she tried various methods. “Ekta Kapooor 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.”

No sooner the news was spread, congratulatory messages started to pour in.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta tweeted: “Many congratulations and lots of love dearest Ekta Kapoor. Welcome to parenthood and joy.

Actor Nimrat Kaur also congratulated Ekta, “Wishing you all the love and the most amazing adventures ever,” Nimrat, who starred in Ekta’s web series The Test Case, posted on Twitter.

Sanjay Gupta wrote, “the most heartening news this morning. Many congratulations Ekta. Welcome to the world and joy of parenting. God bless your baby with good health and lots of ‘masti’”.

Years back, Ekta's brother and actor Tusshar Kapoor also turned father of a baby boy via surrogacy.
