Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor is now a proud father of a healthy baby boy Laksshya Kapoor. As we all know the Kya Kool Hai Hum actor resorted to in vitro fertilization procedure (IVF) to become a single father.
This is definitely great news for everybody as nobody had any hint about the development of the baby till Tusshar announced the arrival of the baby and his excitement about being a father!
This is what he said –
“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.”
Not just Tusshar the entire Kapoor family – Ekta Kapoor, Jeetendra and Shobaa Kapoor are excited. Parents of Tusshar, Shobha and Jeetendra said,
“We could not be more excited to be grandparents to Laksshya, and are completely supportive of Tusshar’s decision. This is certainly a tremendous blessing, and an exciting time in our lives. Tusshar is a wonderful son, and he has proven with responsibility, independence, and kindness that he will be a great father to Laksshya.”
So Who Is the Surrogate Mother of Tusshar Kapoor’s Son Laksshya?
Right now there is no clue about the surrogate mother of Laksshya. Also, the exact date of birth of Laksshya is not known as Tusshar announced the arrival of the baby two days ago (He is already a week old). All we know is that Tusshar wanted to be a single father. So he met Dr. Firuza Parikh at Jaslok Hospital and she suggested him to opt for this procedure. No wonder, the actor was in a hurry to become a father as he was turning 40 in few months so he felt he was in a right stage to become a single parent. This is why he went ahead with the procedure that was told to him.
Tusshar wanted to have his own child. This is the reason he went with surrogacy method. In the media interaction expressing his excitement about being a father, he said –
“It’s just your paternal instinct when you feel mentally that you are ready to become a father… Lot of people adopt, but I didn’t want to adopt, I wanted to have my own child. I wanted to be a single parent, my dream has come true. My son looks exactly like me, so it makes me very happy. I have no words to express how excited or joyous I feel right now.”
Interestingly, the idea of being a single parent came to Tusshar Kapoor when he met Rajneeti’s director Prakash Jha in a flight a year ago, who then made him meet a family who had gone with the same procedure. Post meeting them, Tusshar was inspired and also ready to become a single parent.
It is unknown whether Tusshar himself arranged for a surrogate mother or the hospital arranged for him. In either ways, since the identity of surrogate mothers is usually kept anonymous, it is difficult to know the name of the mother.
