  • Priyanka Chopra Jonas spoke about her and Nick Jonas’ daughter in a cover story for British Vogue.
  • Chopra Jonas said she and her husband spent every day for three months in the NICU with their baby.
  • “I didn’t know if she would survive or not,” said the actor.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas has opened up about the premature birth of her and Nick Jonas’ daughter, Malti Marie, and said she didn’t know if her child would survive.

“We spend every day with her on my chest, on my husband’s chest,” Chopra Jonas said of being in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for three months in her cover story for the February 2023 issue of British Vogue , released on Thursday. “I didn’t know if she would survive or not.”

Their daughter was born three months ahead of schedule, and Chopra Jonas recalled that the child was “so small, smaller than my hand” at the time.

“I’ve seen what intensive care nurses do. They do God’s work,” she said. “Nick and I were there while they intubated her. I don’t know how they found what they needed. [in her tiny body] to intubate her.”

The “Quantico” star’s British Vogue feature marked the first time she has opened up about motherhood in such detail, following the birth of her daughter via surrogate in January 2022.

The couple, who were married in late 2018 at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India, during two extravagant ceremonies, had spoken about their desire to become parents in several interviews.

Chopra Jonas and the singer revealed the birth of their baby in a statement shared on their separate Instagram accounts on Jan. 21, 2022.

“We are delighted to confirm that we have received a baby via surrogate,” they said. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you very much.”

At the time, they did not release additional details about the newborn. A birth certificate obtained by TMZ three months later revealed the child’s name and birth details (she was born after 8 pm on January 15, 2022, at a hospital in San Diego).

Jonas shared more information about the “roller coaster” experience of parenthood in an Instagram post honoring his wife on Mother’s Day.

“After more than 100 days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home,” he said. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while our months have been challenging, what is clear in retrospect is just how precious and perfect each moment is.”

Since then, the stars have continued to talk about their baby on social media, but have refrained from showing her face in an effort to protect her privacy.

Chopra Jonas told British Vogue that she developed a tough skin to deal with criticism and judgement, but it was “painful” when people speculated about her and Jonas’ reason for choosing surrogacy.

“You don’t know me,” Chopra Jonas said. “You don’t know what I’ve been through. And just because I don’t want to go public with my medical history, or my daughter’s, doesn’t give you the right to make up whatever reasons you might have.”

The “Matrix Resurrections” star wouldn’t reveal details about the couple’s situation, but said she “had medical complications” so surrogacy was “a necessary step and I’m so grateful to be in a position where I was able to do that. Our surrogate was so generous, kind, adorable and funny, and she took care of this precious gift to us for six months.
