It's an emotional time for the star, who recently opened up in an interview with British Vogue about all things motherhood, including the emotional journey to getting Malti in their lives.

Priyanka and Nick Jonas announced that they'd welcomed their daughter a year ago via surrogacy, although due to her being born a full trimester early, she remained in the NICU for 100 days.

"I was in the OR [operating room] when she came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand," she explained.

She also got emotional when mentioning how they dealt with their daughter being in the hospital for so long, with only the couple being able to visit.

"We spent every single day with her on my chest, on my husband's chest. I didn't know if she would make it or not," she recounted, describing their daily journeys to the NICU in hospitals near Los Angeles.

The Bollywood star even cleared the air on why they decided to opt for surrogacy, although chose to keep a majority of the details private.
