Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor and his parents (who are also Bollywood stars) were worried at how people in their native India would react to the news that Tusshar used IVF and Surrogacy to become a father.
“Initially my parents were a little bit apprehensive whether I should announce the child to be one born through IVF and surrogacy or not. Because they were like, ‘You don’t know how it is going to be taken in India, why even announce it, why don’t you just tell friends, then the friends will tell more friends’,” Tusshar told reporters.
In the end, Tusshar did end up announcing the birth of his son and how he was conceived. To which him and his family were happily surprised by the reaction.
“Everybody in the country has been very accepting. That was a bit surprise for me because I thought there would be diverse views, some kind of ‘oohs and ahas’ about it, all kinds of opinion. But nothing of that sort happened. Especially the media has been so supportive of Laksshya and my choice of having a family in this manner,” he said.
It’s always amazing to hear how Surrogacy has positively changed the lives of so many people. To learn more about becoming a parent through Surrogacy click here.
