Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra Welcomed A Baby Via Surrogate

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have officially welcomed a child through a surrogate, the couple announced on Jan. 21. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” wrote the Jonas Brother on Instagram. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.” The child marks the A-list spouses’ first together, and they’ve yet to share any more official details about its identity. But according to a TMZ report, Jonas and Chopra’s surrogate gave birth to a baby girl on Jan. 15 at a Southern California hospital.

After publicly announcing their relationship in May 2018, Jonas proposed to Chopra in July of the same year, and they officially became engaged in in August 2018 at a traditional Punjabi Roka ceremony held in Mumbai, India. The pair’s marriage commenced with two late 2018 ceremonies held in India, which respectively honored both Chopra’s Indian culture and Jonas’ Christian background.

Shortly after the pair’s wedding, Chopra spoke to People about her and Jonas’ prospects to have children. “We both know that that’s something that needs to happen, but it’s not something I think about very much,” she told the publication in Feb. 2019. “We’re both very driven, we love our work, we’re married to our work, and we’re both very supportive of each other’s work... We definitely want kids, and when the time is right, it will happen.”

More recently, she told The Sunday Times UK in Jan. 2021: “I do want children, as many as I can have.”

The following month, Jonas spoke about his hopes of becoming a father during an interview with E! News. “We're blessed to have each other and have a hopeful heart for the future,” he said. “So many of these things are out of your control, but as long as the foundation of a couple is strong and you're excited about the possibility of that, it's bound to be a beautiful journey and we're excited to go on that.”

“It's going to be a beautiful journey, and I hope for many, or whatever that is,” continued Jonas. “We'll go figure that out when they get there, but for now it's just about making sure we're good.”

Minutes after Jonas and Chopra posted the Jan. 21 announcement to their social media pages, supportive comments from their celebrity friends began rolling in. Nick’s brothers, Joe and Kevin, both posted heart emojis in response to his post, while musician Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic (who produced the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” and “What A Man Gotta Do”) wrote, “Omg HUGE CONGRAAAAAATS WOW WOW WOW.” Underneath Chopra’s post, Vanessa Bryant commented “Congratulations,” and comedian Lilly Singh exclaimed, “AYE!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to cuddle them!!!”
