Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Share First Photo of Daughter Malti, Who Spent 100 Days in the NICU

For Priyanka Chopra, this Mother's Day was extra exciting, as it was the first time she got to celebrate the holiday as a mother herself, after she and Nick Jonas welcomed a baby daughter via surrogate back in January. In order to mark the special occasion, the pair made candid posts on their Instagram accounts, along with sharing the first glimpse of their baby girl, Malti Marie Chopra.

In the surprise photo, Chopra is seen snuggling Malti close to her chest and smiling with her eyes closed, while Jonas looks on and holds the baby's hand in his own. The pair slyly covered their child's face with a white heart emoji.

Each of them also included the same first paragraph in their captions, where they said, “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.”

The couple continued, writing, “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. We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every Doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way. Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a badass. Let’s get it MM! Mommy and Daddy love you.”

However, both Jonas and Chopra added their own personal spins to their end of their captions, beginning with the Jonas Brother, who showed his gratitude for his wife by saying, “Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible mothers and care takers out there, but I want to take a minute to say a special Mother’s Day wish to my incredible wife @priyankachopra on her first Mother’s Day.”

He added, “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.”

Meanwhile, Chopra returned the love in her own caption, where she said, “There is no one I’d rather do this with than you. Thank you for making me a mama @nickjonas I love you.” She also credited the person who snapped the photo, as well as the designer of Malti's outfit, saying, “Ps- thx @divya_jyoti masi for the picture and @akarikalai masi for MMs fit!”

We're glad to hear Malti is finally home (and we can't wait for more pictures of her in the future).
