Nick Jonas Gushes About Newborn Daughter Malti And Wife Priyanka: ‘What A Gift…New Life, New Things Growing’
Nick and his wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas welcomed their first child, daughter Malti Marie, in January via surrogate and recently brought their baby girl home after 100-plus days in the neonatal intensive care unit.
“Our little girl’s home. She’s just amazing. What a gift a baby is,” Nick told Fallon, 47. “It really is. Is everyone giving you advice, giving you books?” the host asked.

Nick then joked, “Turns out everybody I know is a newborn care specialist. All these PhDs I didn’t know they had.”
He added that his brothers Kevin and Joe are “amazing” as uncles, revealing that the youngest Jonas brother, Frankie, is the “favorite uncle by far. Well, he’s the closest in age to the kids,” Nick joked about his 21-year-old brother.
In other news, Nick was asked what he gave his wife for her first Mother’s Day as a mom – which was a citrus tree. Nick, however, admitted when it came to planting it, he had figured it out with a little help from YouTube.
When asked to explain the significance of the gift, he shared, “Just new life, new things growing – and the beauty of citrus trees,” as Fallon laughed. On Mother’s Day, Nick and Priyanka, 39, opened up about parenthood and shared the first photo of Malti in coordinated posts on Instagram.

“On this Mother’s Day, we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced,” the caption began.
“After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is. We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every Doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way. Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a bad***. Let’s get it M! Mommy and Daddy love you.”
“Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible mothers and caretakers out there, but I want to take a minute to say a special Mother’s Day wish to my incredible wife @priyankachopra on her first Mother’s Day,” the caption continued.
“Babe, you inspire me and every way, and you are taking to this new role with such ease and steadiness. I am so grateful to be on this journey with you. You are already an incredible mother. Happy Mother’s Day. I love you,” the singer concluded.
