Tusshar Kapoor yesterday announced to the world about becoming father to a baby boy born through IVF and surrogacy last week at a hospital in Mumbai. This is the first such instance of an unmarried Bollywood celebrity choosing this method of assisted reproduction.
I proudly announce the arrival of my son, a baby boy, born last week through IVF and surrogacy. The baby, Laksshya, is in excellent health. I am thrilled to be a father! The paternal instincts in me have been overpowering my heart and mind for some time now. Therefore, I am thrilled beyond words to have Laksshya, now the greatest source of joy in my life. By the greatness of God and the excellent medical team at Jaslok, parenthood is an option for many, who choose to be single parents. Thanks to you all for your blessings & good wishes! ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂ»ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
In a media statement, Tusshar said, “I am thrilled to be a father. The paternal instincts in me have been overpowering my heart and mind for some time now. I am thrilled beyond words to have Laksshya, now the greatest source of joy in my life.”
Tusshar’s parents, Shobha Kapoor and Jeetendra said, “We couldn’t be more excited to be grandparents to Laksshya, and are completely supportive of Tusshar’s decision. This is a tremendous blessing, and an exciting time in our lives.”
Wondering what inspired Tusshar? A conversation with 'Rajneeti' director Prakash Jha, who has an adopted daughter, was one of the reasons behind Tusshar's decision.
Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, too, conceived third child through IVF and surrogacy procedure.
