Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra share first photo of their baby
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra welcomed their baby girl, Malti Marie, home on Mother’s Day weekend after she spent more than 100 days in the newborn intensive care unit.
The couple commemorated the milestone by sharing the first photo of her on social media on Sunday.
In the sweet picture, Chopra, 39, is seen holding Malti Marie on her chest, while Jonas, 29, grabs onto her little arm.
The “Quantico” star and Jonas Brothers member said in a joint statement alongside the pic, “On this Mother’s Day we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know so many people have also experienced.”
They added, “After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home.”

Chopra and Jonas acknowledged that “every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith” and while theirs was “challenging,” they realized in retrospect “how precious and perfect every moment is.”
“We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way,” they concluded.
“Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a badass. Let’s get it MM! Mommy and Daddy love you.”

Chopra and Jonas then added their own custom Mother’s Day message to the posts.
The “Matrix Resurrections” actress — who is a first-time mom — said in a message to Jonas, “There is no one I’d rather do this with than you. Thank you for making me a mama @nickjonas I love you ❤️.”
Meanwhile, the “Jealous” singer told his wife in his post, “Babe, you inspire me and every way, and you are taking to this new role with such ease and steadiness.”
“I am so grateful to be on this journey with you,” he added. “You are already an incredible mother. Happy Mother’s Day. Ich liebe dich.”
Chopra and Jonas announced in January that they were “overjoyed” to have welcomed their first child via surrogate.
The couple have been married for three years. They tied the knot in 2018 in an extravagant three-day affair in India.
Since then, they had expressed in many interviews a desire to become parents.
In March 2020, Chopra told Tatler magazine, “It is something that I definitely want to do and I’m hoping that whenever God wills it, at the right, opportune time, it’ll happen.”
