Following in her younger brother Tusshar's footsteps, Ekta Kapoor has become a mum to a baby boy.

The producer had her first baby via surrogacy.

The baby was born on January 27 and hasn't been discharged from hospital yet.

Ekta confirmed on Instagram, 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 to 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 to my little bundle of joy, Ravie Kapoor.'

Ekta said it was a seven year journey (to motherhood).

Ekta has named her son after her famous father Jeetendra, whose real name is Ravi Kapoor.

Ekta added another message on Instagram, which read: 'Dr Nandita Palshetkar, who guided Ekta through the process throws light on it and shares, "Ekta Kapoor came to me some years back to become a mother. We tried to help her get pregnant with multiple cycles of IVF. But we were unsuccessful. Hence, we had to take the help of the technique of surrogacy which we performed nine months back at our Bloom IVF centre. Nine months later, she has achieved success with the birth of a child on Sunday.'


Tusshar welcomed his baby boy home on June 1, 2017, and the little one was named Laksshya by his doting bua.

Laksshya has since become quite the star kid, with the paparazzi loving him, as he goes about life with his pal, Taimur Ali Khan.
