Priyanka Chopra Jonas leaned on her husband Nick Jonas amid their daughter Malti’s agonizing birth. Malti was born through surrogacy in January 2022, then hospitalized in the NICU for 110 days, an out-of-body time for the new family.

Having a baby through surrogacy is an option for individuals or couples who are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy themselves. Surrogacy involves a woman, known as the surrogate or gestational carrier, who agrees to carry and give birth to a child on behalf of another person or couple, known as the intended parents.

The “Citadel” star was thankful for Nick’s steady presence when told their daughter would come early.

“I remember he just held me by my shoulders, and I said, ‘Just tell me what to do, because I don’t know what to do.’ And he’s like, ‘Just get into the car with me,'” said Priyanka. “And we drove to the hospital. She was born, and from the moment she took her first breath to now, she’s never been without one of us, ever.”

It’s crucial to understand that surrogacy laws and regulations vary significantly across countries and even within different states or regions. It’s essential to consult with professionals experienced in surrogacy and reproductive laws in your specific location to ensure compliance with legal requirements.

Surrogacy can be a complex and emotional journey, involving financial, legal, and ethical considerations. It’s recommended to seek guidance from fertility specialists, surrogacy agencies, legal professionals, and support groups to understand the process thoroughly and make informed decisions throughout the journey.

Malti Marie Chopra Jonas spent first 100 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), making it home just in time for Mother’s Day.

“Our baby is truly a badass,” Jonas wrote on Instagram while reflecting on her homecoming. “Our next chapter begins now.”

The Bollywood star has seemingly passed down her “Desi Girl” nickname to her little one, a title that the actress earned after her 2008 hit film Dostana, which featured a song of the same name. In August 2022, she shared an adorable snap of Malti wearing a onesie with the name written on it.

Although Mommy Pri maintains their daughter’s privacy, earlier this year 2023, she finally revealed her daughter’s gorgeous figure.
