Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra welcomed their first child, a daughter named Malti, in January of 2022. They celebrated her first birthday this 12 months, and Jonas said in a recent interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show that that they had an enormous party to mark the occasion.
“We needed to rejoice. She went through a reasonably wild journey within the early a part of her life, so we needed to rejoice in style,” he said. “She’s one. She’s beautiful. It’s amazing. The very best.”

Nick Jonas Dishes On Daughter Malti’s 1st Birthday: ‘She’s Beautiful’
Malti was born via surrogate and had complications at birth that kept her within the NICU for over three months. The couple didn’t share that news until she was safely home, at which point they each posted about how difficult the ordeal had been.
“After 100 plus days within the NICU, our little girl is finally home,” Jonas wrote on Instagram on the time. “Every family’s journey is exclusive and requires a certain level of religion, and while ours was a difficult few months, what becomes abundantly clear, on reflection, is how precious and ideal every moment is. We’re overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just wish 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 best way. Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is really a badass. Let’s get it M! Mommy and Daddy love you.”
In June, Jonas told People who he and Chopra decided to share their story because there’s not enough discussion about how different birthing experiences are for each parent.
“I feel that what we shared on social media was just kinda the sensation that we had, the gratitude obviously to have our baby home. But in addition for every and all and sundry that was a part of her journey while within the hospital,” he said. “It’s eye opening in a variety of ways. And I feel it was really essential for us to simply share that. And make sure that that folks know that whatever their journey is, whether it’s something like we went through or diabetes or whatever challenges might come up, you are not alone. [I’m] grateful to have a teammate in Pri, who was a rock the entire time and continues to be.”
