Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have named their baby girl Malti Marie, the media reports.
According to a birth certificate obtained by the outlet, their daughter, who was born via surrogate, arrived just after 8:00 PM.
On January 15, at a hospital in San Diego, Calif.
Malti is of Sanskrit, Indian origin and means “fragrant flower” or “moonlight.”
Jonas, 29, and Chopra, 39, announced the exciting news of their baby’s arrival in January.
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” shared a joint statement on Instagram.
“We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”
Their baby girl arrived just one week after Chopra expressed her desire to have children in an interview with Vanity Fair.
“By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens,” the actress said. “They are a big part of our desire for the future.”
In a March 2020 interview, she also said that family is “essential” to her.
“It is something that I want to do, and I am hoping that whenever God wills it, at the right, opportune time, it will happen,” she told Tatler magazine.
Chopra and Jonas tied the knot in 2018 during an extravagant three-day affair in India.
More than 250 of their closest friends and family, including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, attended the nuptials, which blended traditions from each culture in a “beautiful” way.
“It melted my heart. In India, being able to have two big weddings with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special,” Chopra told People.
“It has been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figure out how to blend them respectfully and meaningfully.”
