As a Mother’s Day celebration, Nick Jonas and his wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas posted the first photo of their daughter.
The pair individually uploaded the same image on their Instagram accounts – Chopra Jonas carrying their baby girl (with the baby’s face concealed), with her husband looking at them. In January, the two revealed that they had their first child through a surrogate.
The photo’s caption read: “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,” it further reads. “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.”
Both expressed their gratitude to the doctors and nurses at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles. Jonas also left a special note to his wife.
“Babe, you inspired me and every way, and you are taking this new role with such ease and steadiness,” he wrote. “I am grateful to be on this journey with you. You are already an incredible mother. Happy Mother’s Day. I love you.”
The couple started dating in May 2018, and a few months later, in July, Jonas bent his knees to ask Chopra Jonas’ hand in marriage in Crete, Greece.
They finally tied the knot after a few months, and not just once but twice in honor of their different beliefs: One in a Christian ceremony in Mumbai, India, and the other in a traditional Hindu ceremony at Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, in December 2018, holding four receptions and wearing several outfits.
The wedding was, of course, attended by their closest friends and family.
Chopra and Jonas managed to organize a multi-wedding celebration in only two months with several hands on deck – a whole team of stylists, planners, and vendors.
“One thing you should know is that [Chopra’s] wedding was not planned months in advance or anything; it was barely a two months heads up, which is a tight window frame for a bride,” the actress’ long-standing stylist Ami Patel said in an interview with Vogue India.
“It was a bit of a challenge, but Priyanka’s always thrown challenges at me, so I wasn’t surprised.”
Even with their 10-year age gap (Jonas 29 and Chopra Jonas 39), the couple’s relationship remains as strong as ever. During an episode of Jonas Brothers: Moments Between The Moments, Nick unveiled the story of their relationship.
“I used to think that I can just go go go, a million miles a minute. I think the last 18 months have taught me how to slow down a little bit. Actually, enjoy being home. When I met Priyanka, and we fell in love, one of the things we connected on early was how ambitious we both were. And focused and driven. How deeply we care about our work,” said Nick.
Priyanka replied, “You and I are building our marriage based on prioritizing ourselves together. And it’s just really amazing to find a partner that prioritizes us. Us time.”
