Ekta Kapoor Shares Her Struggle Being A Single Mother To Son Ravie Kapoor
Being a mother is a blessing! When a lady enters motherhood, she automatically becomes more careful and concern. Similar is the case with the renowned Indian television producer, film producer and director, Ekta Kapoor. Ekta is one of the most discussed names in the industry and had recently welcomed a baby-boy in her family. She always longed for having a child and her wish finally came true on January 27, 2019 when she became a mother through surrogacy. Ekta is so fond of her father, Jeetendra Kapoor that she has kept her baby’s name ‘Ravie Kapoor’ on his father’s name, Ravi Kapoor.
After 3 days of becoming a mommy, on January 31, 2019, she took to her Instagram handle to share the news with everyone. Ekta wrote, “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.” Adding on, she wrote, “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.”
Regarding the work life-family life balance, Ekta seems to manage both quite efficiently. She says, “Being a working mother, one has to manage things.” Adding details about her son, she shared, “I checked his chart and got to know that he has a high temper. People think am short-tempered, but he is the one.”
During a conversation with the famous Indian author, journalist and film critic, Anupama Chopra, Ekta revealed that she always feels guilty. She said, “I think the first thing you think as a mother is guilt. I don’t think anyone would say that so openly. I am at work, I am feeling guilty, when I am at home, there is a lot of guilt about not completing the things that I used to normally do. So, you are just dealing with various kinds of guilt. Then it’s responsibility and third is a feeling that there’s someone there that you want to see grow. It’s a bit confusing at this moment. It has been 25 days as of now.”
Well, our best wishes to the newly-become mumma Ekta !
