Nick Jonas opened up about his newfound perspective on fatherhood after welcoming daughter Malti with wife Priyanka Chopra back in January.
The pair's journey into parenthood was no easy feat after their baby girl spent over 100 days in the NICU after arriving via surrogate.
Speaking to Variety on Wednesday, the "Sucker For You" hitmaker briefly touched.
On the recently discussed mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, saying things are "more intense" now that he is a father.
"The weight of everything is much more intense," he told the outlet.
"I think it is now about trying to be as present as possible and as thoughtful as you can be for your family and other people's journeys."
"I am so grateful for [Malti Marie] and the wonderful perspective of being a parent," he added.
After news of the horrific massacre came to light, Jonas took to Twitter.
Where he shared a link to a group called Moms Demand Action that works to end gun violence.
"Kids should not have to worry about gun violence."
"They especially should not have to worry about gun violence at school. Heartbreaking," he tweeted last week.
"As a father and uncle, I cannot think about the kids and all the lost lives," he told Variety.
"I am hoping for change to happen, and we will see the end of this."
Jonas has remained tight-lipped about his and Chopra's newborn.
The couple even kept their surrogacy news under wraps until after Malti was born.
"We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate," the duo wrote in a joint Instagram statement.
"We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time focusing on our family."
