There is a new love in Tusshar Kapoor’s life – and he is cute, tiny and adorable! The unmarried actor just became a proud father to a baby boy through surrogacy using IVF. The little boy, whom he has named Laksshya, is the first grandchild in the household and needless to say, Grandpa Jeetendra, Grandma Shobha and Buaa Ektaa have been going berserk with happiness!
But why, we did wonder briefly, did Tusshar opt to become a single Dad? How does he plan to look after the baby, which is a mammoth task even for couples? The reason, which Tusshar explained at length, and his plans for the baby’s future, are both immensely heartwarming.
"I will be turning 40 in a few months. The paternal instincts in me have been overpowering my heart and mind for some time now. I feel that I am in the right stage of my life to be a single parent. Therefore, I am thrilled beyond words to have Laksshya, now the greatest source of joy in my life. I am thrilled to be a father!
My son looks exactly like me. So, it makes me very, very happy and I don't have words to express how excited or how joyous I am. I am the caretaker, me and my parents and Ekta. I have been learning for the last nine months. By the greatness of God and the excellent medical team (at Jaslok), parenthood is an option for many, who choose to be single parents.”
