Priyanka Chopra Shares a Peek at Baby Malti On Her First Trip to India

On Thursday, Priyanka Chopra shared a rare photo of her baby Malti Marie’s face in a photograph of the one-year-old receiving blessings at Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai. The girl was wearing a small circlet over her baby hair, and wearing a onesie with white embroidery. Chopra was draped in a red shawl over an extended transparent piece of blue embroidered fabric, holding Malti in her arms next to an altar covered in flowers.

“MM’s first trip to India needed to be accomplished with Shree Siddhivinayak’s blessings,” Chopra wrote within the captioning, hashtagging the photographs #HanumanJayanti #GanpatiBappaMorya.

The actress shares Malti along with her husband Nick Jonas, who joined her on the opening of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) in Mumbai this week, where she wore a shocking ensemble by Amit Aggarwal.


While in India, she’s also been doing a press tour for her Amazon Prime series, Citadel, together with co-star Richard Madden.

The star recently told Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast how she got to the choice to have children in her later 30s when she had a younger husband. They welcomed Malti via surrogate in 2022.

“I all the time knew I wanted kids, which was considered one of the large reasons I didn’t want so far Nick at the moment ’cause I used to be like, ‘I do not know if he wants kids at 25,” at the moment,” she explained. “But I’ve all the time wanted kids. I really like kids.”

She then discussed how she decided to freeze her eggs in her early thirties, which she felt freed up time for her profession.

“I could proceed on an ambitious warpath that I wanted to realize,” she said. “I desired to get to a certain place in my profession. I also hadn’t met the person I desired to have children with or I didn’t see that. That is anxiety-inducing. I used to be 35, and my mom’s an OBGYN who’s like, ‘Just do it.’”

Chopra added, “I tell everyone to [freeze their eggs]. My mom had said [to do it as many times as you need] to me, and I did do it for myself as well.”
