Surrogacy through using IVF came under fire by a key government official who described it as the hobby of the Bollywood celebrities.
External affairs minister Sushama Swaraj said “sad to say that what was started to fulfill a necessity is now treated as fashion.”
Bollywood celebrities who had children through IVF came out in support of the system included biggest Hollywood stars like Aamir Khan and Farah Khan who had triplets through IVF.
Actor Tusshar Kapoor is the most famous person who became a single father to a baby boy named Laksshya using IVF in June this year.
Earlier, Tusshar had announced the arrival of his son with an official statement, saying “I proudly announce the arrival of my son, a baby boy, born 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!”
Interestingly, Tusshar Kapoor is not married and is not reportedly dating anyone as well. This in turn raised a lot of eyebrows after he chose to became a single parent.
On the other hand, Tusshar’s parents Jitendra and Shobha Kapoor too are quite happy with this new addition to their family.
The proud grandparents stated, “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.”
Newly become aunt Ekta Kapoor couldn’t hold her excitement for long and was the one to share the first picture of the newly-born with his proud grandfather and veteran actor Jeetendra. In that picture, veteran actor Jeetendra was seen kissing the forehead and showering love on his first grandchild. – CINEWS
