They shared the exciting baby news on IG.
Congratulations, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. The celebrity couple are officially parents. On Jan. 21, they announced the birth of their first child. "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," the stars each wrote in matching Instagram statements.
After first meeting at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in February 2017, Jonas and Chopra reportedly began dating that April, and the singer proposed to Chopra during a trip to Greece in July of 2018. They officially tied the knot that December.
The couple repeatedly expressed interest in growing their family. In January of last year, Chopra told the British newspaper, The Sunday Times, “I do want children, as many as I can have.”
Jonas echoed similar sentiments last year during a February interview with Extra. “We’d be blessed with any child, son or daughter or anything,” he said. “Just knocking wood that it happens.”
Their blessing came true. Though the couple didn’t specify the sex of their newborn, TMZ reports Jonas and Chopra welcomed a baby girl on Jan. 15, in a Southern California hospital.
Since the couple hadn’t shared their pregnancy publicly, the announcement surprised some fans. “NICK JONAS AND PRIYANKA CHOPRA HAD A BABY OMG,” one person tweeted.
“OMG!!!! Congratulations to Nick & Priyanka,” another wrote.
Jonas and Chopra’s baby announcement comes a few months after rumors circulated the couple may have broken up. A few days before Thanksgiving, fans noticed the Quantico actor changed her name on IG from Priyanka Chopra Jonas to simply Priyanka Chopra.
Chopra shut down the rumors in a Jan. 13 interview with Vanity Fair, revealing she and Jonas are still going strong. “Because of the noise of social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot larger than it is. I think that we give it a lot more credence in real life, and I don’t think it needs that,” she said.
Here’s hoping Nick’s brothers Joe and Kevin sent him and Priyanka an adorable baby gift.
