Filmmaker and television producer Ekta Kapoor has become a mom for the first time and welcomed her first child, a baby boy via surrogacy. The baby was born on January 27 and it is reported that the whole Kapoor household is all set to bring home the little one soon. Ekta is yet to share news on her social media.

Ekta followed in the footsteps of her younger brother Tusshar Kapoor, who welcomed his son, Laksshya Kapoor, via surrogacy three years ago. Ekta has been very close to Tusshar's son and even named him Laksshya. Seems like the years of babysitting her precious nephew might have inspired the filmmaker to have one of her own.

Ekta and Tusshar Kapoor are the children of veteran actor Jeetendra and producer Shoba Kapoor and have never married. Tushar after opting for surrogacy in the year 2016 also inspired Karan Johar to go for the same. And now even his sister Ekta joined the brigade of single mothers in Bollywood after opting for surrogacy.

Tusshar in an interview had revealed why he decided to be a single parent. He said, "I was thinking about it for some time before I finally had the baby because I was running out of time. I am not married yet. I may or may not in the future. I felt the time was running out fast and I couldn't wait to have a family, have a child. That's something I won't be able to do as I grow older. I can always get married. That's why I decided to become a single parent."

On the work front, Ekta is working on the recreated version of popular TV show Kasautii Zindagii Kay while also producing other TV shows such as Naagin season 3, Dil Hi Toh Hai and Qayamat Ki Raat. Her latest Bollywood productions were Veere Di Wedding and Laila Majnu and also has a few projects lined up this year including Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao, Dream Girl with Ayushmann Khurrana and Jabariya Jodi starring Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra.
