Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra went above and beyond to mark their daughter’s birthday. The Jonas Brothers member revealed that he and his wife celebrated Malti’s first birthday “in style,” and explained why.
When she appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the 30-year-old recalled her birthday celebration. He revealed, “We needed to celebrate. We had to celebrate in style because she had gone through a pretty wild journey in her early life… She’s the first. She’s stunning. It’s incredible. The very best.”
Nick and Priyanka had surrogate baby Malti in January 2022. The newborn was in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU) for nearly 100 days after birth before the couple was able to take her home.
On Mother’s Day, the “Baywatch” star reflected on their “rollercoaster” parenting journey. “On this Mother’s Day, we can’t help but reflect on the last few months and the rollercoaster ride we’ve been on, which we now know, so many other people have also experienced,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of her daughter.
“After 100 days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home,” the Miss World 2000 winner added. “While ours was a difficult few months, what became abundantly clear in retrospect is how precious and perfect every moment is.”
It wasn’t until November that Priyanka revealed Malti’s face for the first time. At the time, the Indian native posted an Instagram Story photo of the infant wearing a pink knitted beanie cap that covered her eyes and revealed her blushing cheek.
As the cap fell low on her nose, the baby appeared to be sleeping. She was strapped into a car seat, wearing a cardigan over a T-shirt to keep warm. “I mean…,” the “Quantico” alum captioned the adorable photo, which he accompanied with two heart face emojis.
