Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra celebrate baby Malti's first birthday 'in style'

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are celebrating quite the milestone for their family, as their daughter, Malti Marie, is officially one year old. The couple, who married in 2018, welcomed their first child on 15 January 2022 via surrogacy.

Though they have kept their daughter largely out of the spotlight, her dad couldn't help but give insight into what they were doing to celebrate her very first year.

During his latest appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the singer revealed they kept the holiday's festive energy going by celebrating baby Malti's birthday a tad bit early.

It wasn't until May that she was finally able to be home with her parents, though her arrival was quite timely, as it coincided with Priyanka's very first year celebrating Mother's Day.

In a statement shared on Instagram at the time, Nick wrote: "Every family's journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is."
