Tusshar Kapoor opted for surrogacy last year, and welcomed home his little boy, Laksshya. The adorable kid has since then, been the apple of his grandparents’ eyes and bua Ekta Kapoor. Ekta dotes on her nephew, as we all have seen through her pictures on social media.

As much as she loves kids, the TV czarina does not plan to take the plunge as of now. She wants to embrace motherhood someday, but isn’t sure about marriage. Speaking to an entertainment portal, she said:

My parents want me to (have a baby) but I don’t know if I am ready. I am too busy. So, I have huge respect for women who manage both the home and their work. It’s superb multi-tasking, kudos to them. At this present moment, I have to take out time for a work-out.  At 1’o clock, I am going for a walk. I need to plan my life first before I plan a child.

She also spoke very fondly of Laksshya:

I am a human being who recovered from a lot of pain last year because of my nephew. I had many professional ups and downs last year. Television did very well but films did not and that is very in your face because everyone knows it did not do well. So, it just hits you more. But my nephew would just suck out every bit of tension from me. People, when they used to talk about their children, their eyes would light up. And he is not even my own child, he is my nephew but it is magical. A magic happens when a child comes to a house and as a kid grows, you grow with them and the small things become the big things.

And finally, the inevitable question – is marriage on the cards?

All my friends, who were married are now unmarried. With the amount of divorces I have seen recently, I think I am the more patient one. Atleast, I waited for it. I definitely know one thing, that I want a child but marriage, I don’t know.

Take your time, girl!
