Seems like the joke they made a couple of months ago about "expecting" wasn't really a joke after all.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are first-time parents! The couple, who wed in 2018, welcomed their daughter via surrogate on Saturday, January 15, 2021, according to PEOPLE.
"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," Chopra announced on Instagram Friday.
Earlier, before their wedding, Chopra did talk about how she does want to grow and have children with the love of her life, Nick, even though she is someone who doesn't really like to plan ahead for the future, per PEOPLE.
“I am a very live in the today, maximum live in the next two months kind of person,” Chopra said. “But [in] 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”
In a more recent interview with Vanity Fair, Chopra opened up about her and Jonas' interest in having a baby together. "They're a big part of our desire for the future," said Chopra, 39. "By God's grace, when it happens, it happens."
Despite how busy the pair are in their respective careers, Chopra joked that they're "not too busy to practice" making a baby. She added that they're "both okay" with the busy pace in their professional lives and will slow down when the time calls for it.
In November 2021, Nickyanka was a part of the Netflix special "Jonas Brothers Family Roast" and there was a moment while Chopra was roasting her husband when she revealed that as the only couple onstage without kids, before saying "Nick and I are expecting..."
There's a dramatic pause and as the camera pans to Jonas's face, there's happiness and panic on his face, almost as if he was thinking of how this was not how they were planning on sharing the news with the world.
However, the confusion was rather short-lived as Chopra announced they were expecting to get absolutely drunk that night and sleep in the next day. It almost seemed like Jonas let out a sigh of relief, according to Cosmopolitan.
But in retrospect, it's almost like Chopra was hinting that they are about to become parents, and we're sure they'll be the absolute best to their little one.
