Nick Jonas reveals why Priyanka Chopra and he kept a huge birthday bash for Malti

On Kelly’s show, Nick said, "We had to celebrate. She went through a pretty wild journey in the early part of her life, so we had to celebrate in style.” He added, “She's one. She's beautiful. It's amazing. The best."

For the unversed, Nick and Priyanka welcomed their daughter Malti through a surrogate last year in January. The couple took it to their respective social media accounts to announce the wonderful news to fans, followers, and fans. In the post, they wrote, “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate.” They also sought privacy and added, “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”

When Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra opened up about Malti Marie’s hospitalization

It was five months after her birth that Nick and Priyanka Chopra revealed that Malti was in the NICU for about 100 days. On International Mother’s Day last year, Jonas took to his Instagram handle to share an adorable photo featuring him with Priyanka and their baby daughter. He wrote a long, heartfelt caption to the post, which started, “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. “

Reiterating the emotion that they are overjoyed to have Malti home after all those tensed weeks at the hospital, Nick also extended his gratitude to the medical professionals, nurses, specialists, and staff at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who took care of their daughter. He also proclaimed his love for Malti Marie, and wished his actress wife a very happy Mother’s Day. “Babe, you inspire me and every way, and you are taking to this new role with such ease and steadiness. I am so grateful to be on this journey with you. You are already an incredible mother. Happy Mother’s Day. I love you,” Nick thus ended the caption.

Later in June last year, Nick told People magazine why he and Priyanka decided to share the information about their daughter’s hospitalization on social media. The 30-year-old said that they just wanted to share their feeling and express their gratitude to have Malti back home and for everyone who was part of their rollercoaster journey in the hospital. Nick termed their experience ‘eye-opening’ and stated that it was important for them to share that. “And make sure that people know that whatever their journey is, whether it's something like we went through or diabetes or whatever challenges might come up, you're not alone,” Nick was quoted saying. He further thanked Priyanka for being a teammate and a rock to him.
