New Delhi:

TV czarina Ekta Kapoor has been blessed with a baby boy through surrogacy and has named the little one Ravie, after her dad Jeetendra's real name. Ekta shared the news on Instagram and 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.''

Speaking about becoming a grandfather again, Jeetendra told Midday, ''I was a dada earlier. Now, I have become a nana. My life is complete!” Talking about naming the child Ravie, the actor added that they added the ‘E’ in the end, ''They wanted an astrologically [favourable] name starting with R, and then Ekta thought why not name him after baba?''

Jeetendra said that both he and his wife are super thrilled and looking forward to welcoming the baby home. ''Shobha and I were over the moon when we heard it first. We are looking forward to him coming home,'' he said. 

He adds that the family makes daily rounds of the suburban hospital where the baby is currently under supervision. "My family says he [Ravie] looks just like me, but then, a child's looks keep changing every day. It's tough to say who he will resemble in the future. Now, I have Laksshya and Ravie — they are the apple of my eye. I can die peacefully now as both my babies have their own babies.”

For all those who don’t know, back in 2016, brother Tusshar Kapoor too had become a proud parent to Laksshya via surrogacy.
