Nick Jonas recently opened up about the experience of becoming a father for the first time with wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas on a TV show. The singer-actor welcomed his daughter, Malti Marie Chopra Jonas with Priyanka earlier this year through surrogacy. Describing his parental journey Nick called it ‘magical’ for him and Priyanka. However, noted that the journey has been a wild one as Malti had to spend over three months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) before they could bring her home as she was born three months earlier than the due date.
Nick spoke about Malti and Priyanka on The Kelly Clarkson Show where he was promoting his upcoming show Dancing With Myself. When he received congratulations on becoming a father, Nick said, “It’s pretty wild.” Talking about daughter Malti, Nick said, “She has got a little heart face. She is the best, it's just been a magical season of our lives and also pretty wild. But it's a blessing to have her home, and it's wonderful.”
He had previously revealed in another interview that his parents are also thrilled after becoming grandparents for the fourth time and said, “It's a huge family now, my brothers got kids, Jonas family keeps growing. My parents are thrilled- grandparents of now four beautiful granddaughters.”
Nick’s eldest brother Kevin Jonas has two daughters with his wife Danielle Jonas – Valentina Angelina and Alena Rose while elder brother Joe Jonas also has a daughter Willa with his actor wife Sophie Turner, and are currently expecting another child.
On Mother’s Day this year, Priyanka and Nick took to social media to share a heartfelt post for their daughter and share a glimpse of her but kept her face hidden with a white heart sticker. They wrote, “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. After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is 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. Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a badass. Let’s get it MM! Mommy and Daddy love you. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and caretakers in my life and out there. You make it look so easy. Thank you. Also.. there is no one I’d rather do this with than you. Thank you for making me a mama @nickjonas I love you Ps- thx @divya_jyoti masi for the picture and @akarikalai masi for MMs fit! .”
