Priyanka Chopra tied the knot with singer Nick Jonas in Rajasthan in December 2018. The couple announced the news of their daughter’s birth through a surrogate in January 2022, also requesting privacy. They brought their baby girl home from the hospital after 100 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), because she was born a trimester before her due date.
Talking about being accused of ‘outsourcing’ pregnancy, ‘renting’ a womb and acquiring a ‘ready-made baby’ through a surrogate, Priyanka was asked if she expected the kind of reaction she got after she had become a mother. She told British Vogue, “I’ve developed tough skin when people talk about me.”
“But it’s so painful when they talk about my daughter. I’m like, ‘Keep her out of it.’ I know what it felt like to hold her little hands as they tried to find her veins. So no, she’s not going to gossip. I really protected this chapter of my life with my daughter. Because it’s not just about my life. It’s hers too.”
Priyanka and Nick have not revealed their baby’s face yet. The couple continues to hide their baby’s face in photos and videos before sharing it online.
Priyanka will be seen in two major projects Love Again and the web series Citadel. Previously titled t’s All Coming Back To Me, Love Again is scheduled for release on February 10, 2023 in the US. It’s based on Karoline Herfurth’s 2016 German film SMS fur Dich, according to a report from Deadline.
Citadel, on the other hand, is a science fiction drama created by the Russo brothers. In Bollywood, Priyanka will star in Farhan Akhtar’s directorial comeback project, Jee Le Zaraa. Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif will also star in the film.
