Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas welcomed a baby via surrogate in January.
Though the Jonas Brothers singer and his Baywatch actress bride have been open about their relationship over the years, the two kept their baby news private until after their child was born.
"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. Thank you so much," Priyanka and Nick wrote in their statement, which was shared on their respective public Instagram profiles. The spouses added a red heart emoji to the end of their message.
Just minutes after the statements were posted, the two received an outpouring of support from their friends and loved ones.
Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Jordan McGraw (who opened for the JoBros during their Remember This tour) shared red hearts, while One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder wrote, "Omg HUGE CONGRAAAAAATS WOW WOW WOW" underneath Nick's post.
Lilly Singh added, "AYE!!!!!!!! Can't wait to cuddle them!!!" on Priyanka's post. The 39-year-old's longtime pal, Kal Penn, wrote, "Congratulations! Kalpen uncle is ready to babysit!" Vanessa Bryant shared "Congratulations!!!" on the Quantico alum's feed, too.
The name of Nick and Priyanka's daughter has officially been revealed.
Nearly three months after her birth, TMZ obtained the Jonas baby's birth certificate. The outlet announced that Nick and Priyanka's daughter's full name is Malti Marie Chopra Jonas. The document also reveals that Malti was born just after 8 p.m. on Jan. 15 at a San Diego hospital.
Malti will be in good company in the extended Jonas family. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have a daughter named Willa, 1, while Kevin Jonas and Danielle Jonas share Alena, 8, and Valentina, 5, together.
Is it too early to start wishing for a next-generation Jonas girl group?
