Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas welcomed their first child, one-year-old daughter Malti, via surrogate in January 2022.
At the time, both released a statement to Instagram, which read: “We are delighted to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy at this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you ❤️”, but that didn’t stop people from looking for more information.
In a January 19, 2023 interview with British Vogue, Chopra posed for photos with baby Malti and spoke to Jonas and her daughter about motherhood and family life. She also responded to “internet trolls” seeking information about the couple’s surrogacy journey and why they made the choice.
Priyanka Chopra reveals why she chose surrogacy
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas received plenty of comments, both positive and negative, after sharing they had welcomed a daughter through surrogacy. One person wrote on Chopra’s Instagram post, “You bought a baby what a disappointment.” Harper’s Bazaar Arabia joined the conversation, suggesting that the couple may have opted for surrogacy given their busy schedules Daily Mail claims that the election was not due to fertility issues.
In her interview with British Vogue, Chopra denied all the rumors and confirmed that her decision to conceive via surrogate was due to “medical complications.”
When the topic of internet rumors arose, Chopra said, “I’ve developed a hard skin when people talk about me. But it hurts so much when they talk about my daughter. I say, ‘Keep her out of there.’ I know how it felt to hold their little hands as they tried to find their veins. So no, she won’t be gossip. I have truly protected this chapter of my life with my daughter. Because it’s not just about my life. It’s hers too.”
Chopra also addressed the “internet trolls” directly. British Vogue reports that her tone took on “a sharpness” as she said: “You don’t know me. You don’t know what I’ve been through. And just because I don’t want to make my or my daughter’s medical history public doesn’t give you the right to make up the reasons why.”
Chopra also revealed that the reason she didn’t comment on that backlash at the time was because baby Malti was born a full trimester premature, so she and Jonas focused all of their energies on doing whatever it takes to make sure their baby is born stayed healthy.
Priyanka Chopra stars in Dion’s first film role alongside Celine Dion
Priyanka Chopra also spoke to British Vogue about her upcoming romantic comedy Love Again, which is reported to hit theaters on May 12, 2023 meeting.
Playing Celine Dion herself in the film, it marks the 54-year-old singer’s first major film role after a number of cameo appearances throughout her career, including as herself on the television show The Nanny and as Miss Piggy’s fairy godmother on Muppets Most Wanted’ in 2014.
In the film, Chopra plays a woman who, after the sudden loss of her fiancé, texts him with his old phone number, unaware that she has been assigned to a journalist played by Scottish actor Sam Heughan. When Heughan’s character is hired to write a profile of Dion, he enlists her help in meeting Chopra’s character in real life.
Dion was forced to postpone her planned 2023 tour dates last year when she announced she had been diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome, a “chronic condition that causes muscle stiffness and painful muscle spasms,” according to the Cleveland Clinic. Although there is no cure, there are treatments that can help relieve symptoms and slow the progression of the condition. Dion hopes to continue with her scheduled tour dates in 2024.
