Congratulations are in order for Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who welcomed their first baby, via surrogate on Saturday, Jan. 15. Just a few months back, Priyanka Chopra made a joke about expecting a baby, and oh boy! she was not kidding.
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family,” Chopra announced on Instagram Friday.
While the couple hasn’t revealed the gender or the name of the baby, numerous publications report that it’s a baby girl.
Upon their baby announcement, the comments section has been overflowing with love and blessing for Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, and their baby. Taking to the comment section of Priyanka’s post, the Jonas brothers also expressed their joy by dropping heart emojis.
Priyanka Chopra has always been open about sharing her thoughts on motherhood ever since she tied the knot with Nick Jonas.
The actress told PEOPLE in June 2018, “In 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”
She also told InStyle in June 2019 that children were definitely on the horizon when the time was right: “I want my existence to have meant something. I want my kids to turn around and be like, ‘Yeah, that was my mom.’ “
In a Vanity Fair interview this January, speaking of the same Priyanka said, “They (kids) are a big part of our desire for the future. By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.” When Priyanka was asked if she would slow down on the career front after embracing motherhood, she said, “I’m okay with that. We’re both okay with that.”
The actress, 39, and Jonas Brothers musician, 29, tied the knot in two glamorous ceremonies at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India, in 2018.
Nick and Priyanka’s newborn joins a trio of cousins to play with.
Nick’s brother Kevin Jonas’ has a 5-year-old daughter Valentina Angelina and Alena Rose, 7, and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have a baby girl named Willa, 1, whom they welcomed on July 22, 2020.
As we wait for Priyanka and Nick to share more details about their newborn, here’s sending best wishes to the new parents.
