For those unaware, Akash Ambani and Isha Ambani Piramal were born via surrogacy to Mukesh and Nita Ambani. Unfortunately, when Nita was 23, she was told by the doctors that she can never conceive. Hence after seven years of marriage, Nita and Mukesh decided to go through the surrogacy way. However, things completely changed when after almost four years Anant was born naturally.
Speaking about the same Nita in a throwback interview to iDiva stated “Becoming a mother. A few years after I got married, I was told by the doctors that I would never have children. Even when I was in school, I would write long, copious essays titled, ‘When I’ll be a mother…’ Here I was at the age of 23 being told that I would never conceive. I was shattered. However, with the help of Dr. Firuza Parikh, who is one of my closest friends, I first conceived my twins!”
Nita Ambani in the same interview has also shared an incident when a friend of Anant said words like ‘Ambani Hai Yaa Bikhari’ to her youngest son. Nita said, “When my kids were still young, I’d give them Rs 5 each every Friday to spend in the school canteen. One day, my youngest, Anant, came running into my bedroom and demanded he is given Rs 10 instead. When I questioned him, he said his pals in school laughed whenever they saw him take out a five-rupee coin saying, ‘Ambani hai ya bhikari!’ Mukesh and I couldn’t help but crack up.”
Isha Ambani in a recent interview with Vogue also admitted that she and Akash are indeed IVF babies and how her mother Nita was a strict taskmaster, while her dad was far calmer and cool.
