Becoming parents is the most beautiful thing that a person can ever feel. That happiness, that feeling just makes the person feel out of the world. But enjoying this feeling does not require you to be married as proved by Indian Celebs by going against societal norms. Here we have a list of celebs who brought a revolution to parenthood by proving that marriage is not at all necessary to be a parent.
I think Sushmita Sen is the first name that comes to our mind if we think of someone for setting an example by bringing a revolution to parenthood. Sushmita adopted two girls Renee and Alisah and has raised her daughters very well being a single mother ever since. As per the law if a person adopts one girl child then they cannot adopt another but Sushmita fought with the law to adopt Alisah to accompany Ranee and said, “I wanted to be a mother all over again. The earlier law was that if you have adopted a girl as your first baby, you can't adopt another girl child. And I wanted a girl. Thankfully, the High Court changed the ruling. You can't imagine how happy I was after hearing that."
Tusshar Kapoor dropped the idea of marriage over having his own child. He always wanted his own kid for which he could not wait as he had no plans for marriage at that time, he revealed in an interview. He chose IVF and surrogacy to welcome his kid into this world in 2016 and named his son Laksshya. He is still raising him as a single parent.
