Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have welcomed their first child together. The 39-year-old actress announced they welcomed a baby via surrogate on Instagram
The former beauty queen and actress and her hubby took to their Instagram pages on Friday, January 21, 2022, where she announced the big news.
Chopra wrote, “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.”
Chopra and 29-year-old Jonas have been married since 2018. They’ve both said that they want kids in the future.
In an interview with Spotify’s The Rewind With Guy Raz, Jonas said, “I definitely want to be a father someday. I think that’s a real dream, and I think I have had to grow up pretty quick. With that, you could look at it two ways. You could say that was unfair, or you could say it has given me some real perspective at an early age.
“And I have seen a lot of life at an early age and I hope to be able to share that with a kid of my own someday,” he added.
On her part, Chopra told Vogue India that having a child with Jonas was definitely on her radar.
“Buying a home and having a baby are on my to-do list,” she said.
The couple did not, however, reveal the sex of their baby.
Priyanka and Nick started dating in early 2018. By July of that same year, Nick proposed to the actress.
They went on to wed in a lavish three-day celebration in December 2018 and went on to host four more wedding receptions.
