Former superstar Jeetendra seems rapturous about the birth of his second grandchild, as his daughter the TV czarina Ekta Kapoor welcomed her first child via surrogacy on January 27.
While actor Tusshar Kapoor is excited to announce the arrival of his nephew, former superstar grandpa and Kapoor’s patriarch Jeetendra is also happy, as you can hear the happiness in his voice while he was exclaiming, “I was dada earlier. Now I have become a nana. My life is complete!”
A close source to his family revealed Jeetendra’s joy knows no bounds, as his dear daughter Ekta blessed with a baby boy.
We have earlier reported that Ekta’s little bundle of joy has been named Ravie Kapoor, after the veteran superstar Jeetendra’s original name Ravi.
The Kapoor family’s patriarch also revealed that he was overjoyed when Ekta told him of her decision, adding, “Shobha and I were over the moon when we heard it first. We are looking forward to him coming home.”
Further he said that the Kapoor family makes daily round of the suburban hospital where the baby is currently under supervision. “My family says Ravie exactly looks like me, but then, a child’s looks keep changing every day. It’s tough to say who he will resemble in the future. Now I have Laksshya and Ravie— they are the apple of my eye. I can die peacefully now as both my babies have their own babies.”
Grandpa Jeetendra even shared how the newborn has been named Ravie Kapoor after him. He reveals that the letter ‘E’ was extra addition to his actual name ‘Ravie’, as their family astrologer recommended to do so. His family wanted an astrologically favorable name starting with ‘R’ and that’s made Ekta thought ‘why not name him after baba?’, said the veteran actor.
Both of Jeetendra’s daughter and son Ekta and Tusshar have never gotten married and chosen to be single parent.
Report says, keen to embrace the motherhood, Ekta apparently, tried Intrauterine insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with little success since last seven years. Then it was Dr Nandita Palshetkar, who advised Ekta for surrogacy.
When Jeetendra was asked if he wishes to see his children get married someday, he asserted, “I believe one must be happy in life. It doesn’t matter whether you are married or single. For me, the idea was that Ekta and Tusshar should have someone to come back home to. A baby is the biggest blessing and responsibility to have. With responsibility comes to passion, love, happiness and a purpose in life. There cannot be a bigger responsibility than taking care of a baby.”
Mother Ekta, on her part, shared the news on social media on Thursday, expressing her joy and happiness on the beginning of a new chapter in her life.
