Everyone was surprised when the news broke yesterday that Tusshar Kapoor is now the proud father of a baby boy through IVF and surrogacy. The actor said that he wanted to become a father, and after meeting a doctor, decided upon this route since he is turning 40 soon.
Tusshar met with the media after the news broke to give a quick statement, and while he wouldn’t reveal when Laksshya was born, he did say that he came home a week ago. Here’s what else he said, according to IANS:
I wanted to be a father. I met Dr. Firuza Parikh and she suggested this procedure. I was in a hurry to become a father.. I am turning 40 in a few months, so I felt I was in the right stage to become a single parent and I went ahead with what was told to me. I am happy that I have taken the right decision. Our family is complete now, we are five now, grandparents, me, my sister and little Laksshya. 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. 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.
