Priyanka Chopra shares daughter Malti's glimpse on mother Madhu's birthday
Priyanka Chopra shared the first proper glimpse of her daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas on Thursday (June 16). The special occasion was the 61st birthday of Chopra's mother, Madhu Chopra. Chopra, who regularly shares her personal and professional updates on Instagram, captioned the post, "Love you to the moon and back Nani." The baby's face, however, has still been kept under wraps.
- Chopra got hitched to singer-actor Nick Jonas in December 2018 in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, in both Hindu and Christian ceremonies.
- Their daughter was born reportedly via surrogacy earlier this year, and the couple shared the good news in May.
- The baby gets her name from Chopra's and Jonas's mothers, whose names are Madhumalti Chopra and Denise Marie Jonas, respectively.
The Fashion actor took to Instagram to share the heart-melting picture. She wrote, "Happiest birthday mama! May you always smile that infectious smile of yours." In the photo, we can see Madhu cradling the newborn while Chopra lovingly looks on as the three generations of the Chopra family look tightly bound. Jonas was quick to react with heart and cake emojis.
Things haven't been easy for the youngest Chopra-Jonas, who unfortunately struggled with health complications for over three months. The couple had shared that Malti spent 100 days in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit). Calling the phase a "rollercoaster" and "challenging," Chopra had said the journey was indeed "precious." She had also expressed gratitude toward the doctors and other medical staff.
On the work front, the global sensation has her hands full with a slew of projects. Speaking of Bollywood, she has Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa in the pipeline, a road trip drama co-starring Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt. Currently, she is busy with Citadel with Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) and It's All Coming Back To Me with Sam Heughan (Outlander).
