Honest insight. Priyanka Chopra Jonas made rare comments about becoming a mother — and how the newest addition to the family changed her perspective on life.
“It’s been 20 years of hustling and working at breakneck speed. I’ve always been like, ‘What’s the next thing?’ Chopra Jonas, 40, told British Vogue in an interview for their February 2023 cover, which was published on Thursday, January 19. “But now I feel I have a center, a sense of calm, because every decision ends up being about her.”
The Baywatch star, who shares 12-month-old daughter Malti with husband Nick Jonas, noted that her outlook on her career has shifted. “I want her to be able to look back and be proud of my choices,” she said. “I want to do right by her.”
The twosome announced the arrival of their first child in January 2022. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” the couple, who tied the knot in 2018, said in a statement. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”
Before expanding their family, the pair made headlines for their romance. Chopra Jonas and the musician, 30, sparked romance rumors after they crossed paths at the 2017 Met Gala. Us Weekly broke the news in May 2018 that the duo were officially dating.
Jonas and Chopra Jonas got engaged after two months together and tied the knot that same year. The band member later praised his unique bond with the Isn’t It Romantic star.
“It’s just that magical connection you’ve got with somebody when it’s right. We’re very lucky. We knew each other well before we started dating properly, and I think that foundation as friends always helps in relationships that have evolved in an organic way,” he explained during an interview with SiriusXM in March 2021. “It’s been a wild first couple of years of marriage, and I’m very blessed to have a life partner that I can rely on, and vice versa hopefully.”
Since becoming parents, Jonas and Chopra Jonas offered a glimpse at their new roles. “I have, like, seven cameras in her room,” the India native admitted on Thursday. “There’s really nothing more satisfying than seeing her face as soon as her eyes open.”
Meanwhile, the former Disney Channel star said there was “nothing better” than being a dad, adding, “Overwhelming. The joy, the anxiety, all of the things.”
