Indian filmmaker and producer Ekta Kapoor turned a mother to a baby boy on Sunday, January 27 via surrogacy. He is healthy and will be home soon.

Ekta took some inspiration from her younger brother and actor Tusshar Kapoor. Three years ago, Tusshar became a father to an adorable baby boy whom he named Laksshya Kapoor. The actor's son was also born via surrogacy.

She is a doting aunt to the one-and-a-year old who is often spotted with his father on playdates with other star kids like Taimur Ali Khan or at his playschool.

The actor is a full-time father to the boy and juggles his parental duties amid his professional commitments.

Tusshar and Ekta, the children of former superstar Jeetendra and his wife Shobha Kapoor, never got married. It is indeed wonderful to see them grow their family all on their own.

Several times, Ekta has spoken about not wanting to get married but was open to being a mother after Laksshya was born.
