Ekta is fond of kids in general and if you take a look at her Instagram profile, you will notice that she’s pretty close to her nephew, Laksshya

It was reported that when Tusshar Kapoor had his baby on June 1, 2016, parents Jeetendra and Shobha were a little apprehensive about announcing to the world that he had opted for IVF and surrogacy, as they didn’t know how it would be perceived. But Tusshar was happy with the way people accepted and were happy about his news.

In a media statement, Tusshar had said, “I am thrilled to be a father. The paternal instincts in me have been overpowering my heart and mind for some time now. I am thrilled beyond words to have Laksshya, now the greatest source of joy in my life.”
