22 Apr – Four months after the birth of their first child, it was revealed that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have named their little girl Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.
According to sources, their daughter, who was born via surrogacy, was delivered on 15 January at a San Diego hospital, but that the child was born 12 weeks premature.
Malti reportedly is of Sanskrit origin which means small fragrant flower or moonlight, and that Marie comes from the Latin stella maris, which means star of the sea.
It was back on 22 January that Priyanka and Nick announced the birth of their baby on social media, adding, "We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family."
In a chat with social media personality and TV host Lilly Singh recently, she expressed, "As a new parent right now, I keep thinking about that I will never be imposing my desires, fears, my upbringing on to my child. I have always believed that children come through you not from you. There is no belief like this is my child and I will shape everything. They come through you to find and build their own life."
"Recognising that really helped me, my parents were very non-judgemental in a certain way."
