Nick Jonas has opened up about being a first-time father to his 5-month-old daughter, Malti Marie Chopra Jonas, with wife Priyanka Chopra.
The 29-year-old musician revealed that the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 students were killed, changed his outlook on parenthood. As with all parents, even those overseas, the shooting was tragic and no one would want to see their innocent children grow up in such a world and experience something similar.
In an interview published Sunday, May 29 by E! News, he said the shooting gave him a deeper sense of what it means to be a father or parent.
“The weight of everything is much more intense,” he told E! News in an interview published on Sunday, May 29. “I think it’s now about trying to be as present as possible and as caring as possible for your family, but also for other people’s travels,” the Jonas Brother shared. “As a father, as an uncle, I can’t help but think of the children and all the lives that have been lost… I hope change happens and we will see the end of it,” Nick added. .

Nick and Priyanka hid their surrogate pregnancy until they made a joint parental announcement.
We are delighted to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” they wrote on Jan. 21. “We respectfully request privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you very much,” he also said.
However, after being born prematurely, Malti remained in the hospital NICU. Ahead of Mother’s Day, they were finally able to bring her home after she was there for 100 days for therapy. It certainly made Priyanka see the day very differently than any Mother’s Day past.
On this Mother’s Day we can’t help but think back to the past few months and the roller coaster we’ve been through, that we know now, that so many people have also experienced. After more than 100 days in the NICU, our baby girl is finally home,” Priyanka shared. The post is also where the actress shared the first photo of their baby girl.
In said cute photo, she can be seen hugging her newborn baby, but opted to cover her face for the camera.
Reflecting on the emotional experience, she said everyone’s journey as a family will be different, but there’s no denying that after going through what they’ve done to bring their baby to this point, “it becomes abundantly clear in retrospect how precious and exquisite every moment is.”
Nick and Priyanka’s first child is Malti. The couple married on December 1, 2018 in a grand ceremony in Jodhpur, India after just a few months.
