The happiness just stepped into the Chopra and Jonas family as the Bajirao Mastani actress Priyanka Chopra and “Introducing Me” singer Nick Jonas announced that they became parents to a newly born baby via surrogacy through their social media. Let us get into it.
On Friday, both Priyanka and Nick posted the same statement on their respective Instagram where they announced that they welcomed their first baby via surrogacy, and respectfully asked for privacy during their special moment.
The statement reads:
“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. Thank you so much”.
This announcement came as a surprise as nobody knew about this, and there was not even a slight hint. However, the couple has decided to keep the gender of the baby a secret. But according to TMZ, “sources with direct knowledge” revealed to the outlet that the couple welcomed a baby girl, and she was born on January 15, 2022. Both Priyanka and Nick have yet to confirm these details about the reports.
The couple started dating back in May of 2018, and it is said that they met through Instagram. Jonas proposed to Chopra on 19th July, 2018, just a day after her birthday in Crete, Greece. Later, they got engaged in August of 2018 in a Punjabi Roka ceremony in Mumbai, and finally got married grandly in December of 2018. The marriage took place at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India, and the couple tied a knot in both traditional Hindu and Christian ceremonies.
Priyanka has always been open about wanting children. Shortly after tying the knot, the Quantico actress told People, “I am a very ‘live in the today’, maximum ‘live in the next two months’ kind of person.” She went on to say, “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.”
Back in 2019, she spoke to Access Hollywood when her Bollywood movie The Sky is Pink was going to be released, saying, “I have been ready since I was 12. I have always wanted to have kids. It’s not about being ready, it will happen when we are destined for it. It’s something both of us want, it’s something that we have talked about, it’s something that is important to both of us, and now it’s just about when it’s supposed to be.”
The 39 year old actress has also appeared in four music videos of her husband, Nick Jonas, which are “Sucker”, “What a Man Gotta Do”, “Until We Meet Again” and “Spaceman”. Among these, “Until We Meet Again” and “Spaceman” were the singles of Jonas, while “Sucker” and “What a Man Gotta Do” were the songs of Nick and his brothers Kevin and Joe’s boy band, The Jonas Brothers.
Even though the couple seems to be in love every time, their relationship has been heavily criticized and slammed by a lot of people due to their age difference of ten years. Recently, when Priyanka dropped the last name Jonas from her Instagram, there were rumors that the couple is getting divorced.
However, Priyanka not only dropped Jonas but also dropped her last name Chopra, because she wants to be known only by her first name like other celebrities such as Beyonce, Shakira, Adele, Zendaya, Rihanna, etc. Soon after the rumors started to arise, the couple cleared them, and now they have announced this good news to the world.
A lot of well known faces have showered their love to these new parents through the comments, such as Mindy Kaling, Lilly Singh, Barkha Dutt, Vanessa Bryant, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Pooja Hegde, Neha Dhupia, John Legend, to name a few.
We congratulate both Priyanka and Nick on their first baby, and we hope all three of them are in good health.
