Actors Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have welcomed their first baby together. The happy couple posted about the news on their respective social media handles and tagged each other on the same. “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,” they wrote in identical statements posted on Instagram.
Priyanka Chopra has always been pretty vocal about wanting children. In an interview with a leading international magazine, the actress had spoken about how her mother, Madhu Chopra, hopes for a grandchild someday. “By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens,” Priyanka told the magazine and also said that having children was a “big part” of her life and that they also desired for the same. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas got married to each other in 2018 in a lavish ceremony following a whirlwind romance.
Two years ago, when rumours of Priyanka Chopra being pregnant had surfaced, Madhu Chopra had said: “It was a bad angle. The outfit was nice She looked like that only in some pictures, the rest were fine. Blame it on the camera angle! When I spoke to Priyanka on the phone, she told me that she was tired and hence, had a slumped posture. I told her what people were saying, and she simply said: ‘Mamma, give me a break!’ ”
For her grand wedding, Priyanka wore a classic red Sabyasachi lehenga. The custom made lehenga had sequins all over with hand-cut organza flowers French knots in silk floss, delicate Siam-red crystals and threadwork embroidery. It took 3720 hours with 110 embroiderers to create the gorgeous ensemble. Priyanka paired her look with a multi-strand polki raani haar with uncut diamonds and emeralds, a maang tikka, waist band and a nath.
