Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor is now mother to a baby boy. Her first child was born via surrogacy on 27 January.

As per a Mumbai Mirror report, the baby boy is healthy and will be home soon.

Three years ago, her brother Tusshar Kapoor opted for surrogacy as well and became father to a baby boy, whom he named Laksshya Kapoor. While talking about single parenting, Tushar revealed, "“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," reports Times Now. 

However, Ekta has not confirmed the news yet.

Ekta shares a good bond with her nephew and often shares pictures of them on social media.
