Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra ‘had a baby daughter’ who was ‘born 12 weeks early’

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra reportedly welcomed a baby girl who is said to have been born 12 weeks early, it has been claimed.

Nick, 29, and his actress wife Priyanka, 39, shared the happy news they had become parents in a joint statement, posted on their individual Instagram pages on Friday 21 January.

They did not confirm the gender or the name of their child.

New parents Priyanka and Nick shared a joint statement on their individual Instagram pages. It read: "We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate.

"We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much."

The "overjoyed" new parents tied the knot in 2018 and surprised fans with the news, which they had kept away from the public before their announcement.

It's now been reported by the Daily Mail that Nick and Priya's baby girl arrived at 27 weeks at a hospital in Southern California outside Los Angeles.

The tot will reportedly remain at the hospital until she is ready to come home with her parents.

Jonas Brothers star Nick and his actress wife Priyanka are said to have a baby together for "quite sometime".

It's understood the couple contacted an agency to explore their options and were connected with a woman in Southern California whom they believed would be a good match for a surrogate.

A source told the Mail Online: "Priyanka doesn't have any fertility issues preventing her from having a baby, but she is 39 now so it's not getting any easier.

"Their busy work schedules also mean that it's difficult for them to physically be together to conceive when she is ovulating, so some time ago they went down the surrogacy route.

"This is the woman's fifth surrogacy. They met her and really liked her.

"The baby had been due in April but the surrogate ended up giving birth on Sunday, so she was very premature."

She told the publication how 2022 will bring big change as she said: "I feel like I am at a precipice of reinvention.

"What is the new me? I’m very excited about the future. I’m terrified of it too. Change is always scary. But I’ve done it multiple times in my life."
