At a time when the divorce rumours of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were afloat, the couple put an end to it for once and all by revealing the news of welcoming their first baby via surrogacy.
In a joint statement, the couple stated, “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.” The couple hasn’t revealed the gender of the baby yet.
However, as per US Weekly, it’s a baby girl. Reports also suggest that she is 12 weeks early. The baby was born in a Southern California hospital outside LA and will remain in the hospital until the baby is healthy.

Just a few days before, the couple was surrounded by divorce rumours.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have been recently facing a lot of controversy with their ongoing relationship. The rumours spread like fire when the actress changed dropper Chopra Jonas from her Instagram username in November 2021. This got a lot of people talking about the couple splitting up.
However, in an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress spoke about the whole gossip and how it affected her relationship. She said that the rumours are a “professional hazard” for both her and her husband Nick Jonas. She felt all the assumptions disappointing.
She said, “It’s a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a picture, everything that’s behind me in that picture is going to be zoomed in on, and people are going to speculate,” she said. “Because of the noise of social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot larger than it is. I think that we give it a lot more credence in real life, and I don’t think it needs that,” she added.
The actress also felt that all such rumours are bearing a lot out of her and are making her feel worst. She added, “I’m starting to protect myself a lot more because I realise how much [the entertainment business] takes out of you.”
“It takes a part of your soul, constantly trying to make sure that you say the right thing, do the right thing, dress the right way, not make a mistake, not trip because the whole world is going to watch. Or not fall when you’re waking up on a red carpet or say something wrong or have a bad day,” she continued.
Nick Jonas, too, commented on the same, “We both know that public life is something that comes with what we do, but we’ve set real boundaries around our personal lives, our privacy, and worked really hard to create that little safe haven for ourselves with our friends and family.”
Still, the couple shares a strong bond and was recently spotted on a lunch date in a restaurant in Los Angeles. The restaurant shared a picture of the couple on social media and many of the fans showered their love on the picture.
