Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tend to keep their family life with their daughter pretty private, and so far, they’ve only given us her name and a handful of photos with her face covered.
In the interview, Chopra relives the difficult first few months of her daughter’s life, which were spent in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) because of her premature birth.
"We spent every single day with her on my chest, on my husband's chest," Chopra revealed.
"I didn’t know if she would make it or not."
According to British Vogue, the couple's daughter was born a full trimester early in January 2022, making her case “extremely” premature and that much more dangerous with many health complications.
"I was in the operating room when she came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand,” the Quantico actress said in the interview.
After 100 days in the NICU, Chopra revealed her "little girl is finally home" in an Instagram post on May 8, 2022.
The actress also praises the intensive care nurses for working their magic and saving her and Jonas’ newborn's life.
"I saw what the intensive-care nurses do. They do God’s work," Chopra said.
During the interview, Chopra also opened up about her experiences of using a surrogate to have their baby and shared that she made the decision because of "medical conditions."
"This was a necessary step, and I’m so grateful I was in a position where I could do this," Chopra said about her surrogacy.
"Our surrogate was so generous, kind, lovely and funny, and she took care of this precious gift for us for six months."
Thankfully, it seems that the couple's daughter is doing much better now and growing up quickly, as seen from the photos on Chopra’s Instagram.
