Karan Johar, Tusshar Kapoor, Sushmita Sen…Meet the seven single parents of B-town
Raising kids is the most difficult and thankless job in the whole world. No matter how much gratitude we express for all the mothers out there still we would fall short of words to express our feelings for them.
If raising a child along with your partner is so difficult, imagine the kind of difficulties a single parent must be going through. However, there are few Bollywood celebrities who are not only raising their kids perfectly but also setting an example for all single parents out there.
Here we bring you six B-town celebs who are donning the hat of a single parent like a pro.
Celebrated filmmaker, reality show judge, host, actor Karan Johar welcomed twins Yash and Roohi via surrogacy last year. Karan who is very attached to his parents named his son Yash after his father’s name and rearranged from his mother’s name Hiroo, to name his daughter Roohi. The filmmaker is a hands-on father who dotes on his twins and his whole life revolves around his babies and his mother.
Announcing the arrival of his kids the filmmaker issued a statement which read, “I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines; Roohi and Yash. I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science.”
Actor Tusshar Kapoor too welcomed his son Laksshya via surrogacy in June 2016. The elated Kapoors shared the happiest moment of their life by announcing, “We could not be more excited to be grandparents to Laksshya, and are completely supportive of Tusshar’s decision. This is certainly a tremendous blessing, and an exciting time in our lives. Tusshar is a wonderful son, and he has proven, with responsibility, independence and kindness, that he will be a great father to Laksshya.”
