Yesterday, it was revealed that film and TV producer Ekta Kapoor was blessed with a son via surrogacy. 

The filmmaker shared a special post on Instagram revealing the name of her son. In the post, she revealed that she has named her son Ravie Kapoor, after her father and veteran actor Jeetendra. His original name was Ravie Kapoor, before he made his Bollywood debut. 

“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. 

Her doctor says Ekta tried other methods before opting for surrogacy. “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.”

Her son Ravie was born on January 27.

A couple of years back, Ekta Kapoor’s brother, Tusshar Kapoor also became a father via surrogacy.
