"You inspire me so much."
Priyanka Chopra shared a small glimpse of her daughter Malti Marie on June 16, 2022, as she took to Instagram to share a picture with her and her mother Madhu Chopra.
The occasion was Madhu’s birthday, which Priyanka marked with a special picture.
Taking to Instagram, Priyanka shared a picture of herself and Madhu cradling little Malti in their hands.
In the picture, Madhu smiled at the camera while Priyanka Chopra looked at Malti.
The baby’s face, however, was not visible in the picture.
Wishing her mother on her birthday, Priyanka Chopra wrote: “Happiest birthday Mama.
“May you always smile that infectious smile of yours. You inspire me so much with your zest for life and experiences every single day!
“Your solo Europe tour was the best birthday celebration I’ve seen in a while. Love you to the moon and back Nani.”
Nani refers to maternal grandmother in Hindi.
Several of Priyanka’s fans dropped heart emojis and showered love and blessings for the family in the comments section.
Priyanka Chopra and her husband, singer Nick Jonas, welcomed their daughter in January through surrogacy.
She was born four months premature.
Nick and Priyanka shared in an Instagram post in May that Malti was born premature and had to spend 100 days in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) before they could bring her home.
In her post, Priyanka wrote: “On this Mother’s Day, we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced.
“After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home.
“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.
“We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way.”
Nick recently revealed that he felt it was important for them to share their journey with others.
Speaking to People Magazine, Nick Jonas said: “I think that what we shared on social media was just kinda the feeling that we had, the gratitude obviously to have our baby home.
“But also for each and every person that was part of her journey while in the hospital. It’s eye-opening in a lot of ways.”
