Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra surprised fans when they announced that they welcomed their first baby via surrogate. The adorable couple hasn’t yet shared whether it’s a baby boy or baby girl. But, either way, the little one will surely be showered with love.

The couple shared identical posts on Instagram and said, “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.”

Nick and Priyanka haven’t shared the sex of their baby, but TMZ confirmed via an unknown source that the couple has welcomed a baby girl. According to the network, the baby was born on Saturday in Southern California.

The new parents have not commented on TMZ‘s gender claims and have not yet responded to the hundreds of congratulation comments on their Instagram posts. Fans are excited that the adorable couple has added on to their family.

The surprise baby announcement comes just a couple weeks after Priyanka said that she wanted a big family with Nick Jonas. She previously joked with E! News that she wanted enough kids to make their own cricket team. Was the Bollywood actress hinting at their baby news?

In an interview with Vanity Fair, she said, “They’re a big part of our desire for the future. By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.”

The actress joked during the interview and said that their busy work schedules haven’t gotten in the way of the couple practicing.

In March 2020, the actress opened up about her desire to have kids with Nick and said that it was a big goal of hers. She said, “It is something that I definitely want to do and I’m hoping that whenever God wills it, at the right, opportune time, it’ll happen.” She also told Tatler Magazine, that she’d be willing to put her busy work life on hold so that they could raise their child.

If the couple, who got married in 2018, have had a girl, this would be the fourth girl for the Jonas Brothers. Nick’s brothers, Kevin and Joe Jonas, both have daughters. Joe Jonas and wife Sophie Turner recently welcomed a daughter named Willa in July 2020.

Kevin Jonas has two daughters with wife Danielle, Alena Rose, 7, and Valentina Angelina, 5.

Fans are unsure what the couple will name their baby, but many guess that the pair will pick a name that beautifully combines their two heritages. When the couple got married back in 2018, they famously had two weddings that lasted over five days.

The two ceremonies, one for Nick’s Christian heritage and the other for Priyanka’s Hindu religion, allowed the couple to blend their families and cultures during the celebrations. The actress previously said that her wedding was like a dream come true.

“Walking out and seeing him standing at the altar for the first time with the sun behind him was just something out of a fairytale for me,” she said. “I could not have planned for how perfect that sky was or how the birds flew when the music started or what the string quartet sounded like or what he looked like. Everything was perfect.”
