Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra Welcome Child Together
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” both Chopra and Jonas posted on their individual Instagram accounts, tagging each other in the captions. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.”
The couple has been married since 2018, after first connecting when Jonas sent Chopra a DM on Twitter. Recently, the pair has unfortunately been plagued by divorce rumors, after Chopra removed the surname “Jonas” from her Instagram account.
Chopra recently appeared in the Netflix special Jonas Brothers Family Roast, where she joked about her and Jonas’ ten-year age gap and faked out the audience by announcing, “Nick and I are expecting … to get drunk tonight, and sleep in tomorrow!”
The Couple Has Talked About Wanting Kids in the Past
Both Chopra and Jonas have been open in the past about their desire to have children together. As Chopra told InStyle in 2019, “I want my existence to have meant something. I want my kids to turn around and be like, ‘Yeah, that was my mom.'”
In 2021, Jonas told Extra about what the baby-naming process would be like, saying, “We’d be blessed with any child, son or daughter or anything… I’m sure her mother will want to weigh in and my family would want to weigh in, too… But just knocking wood that it happens.”
Congratulations to Jonas and Chopra as they embark on the journey of parenthood.
