"Thank you for thinking of me all the time."

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas welcomed their first child, a daughter, in January 2022.

The new parents opted to stay on the West Coast, at their LA home, rather than attend the Met Gala in New York City on May 2, 2022, to be with their daughter who is just a few months old.

Nick’s brother Joe Jonas and his pregnant wife, Sophie Turner, attended the gala instead.

The Met Gala is of utter significance in the life of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra.

The American singer and the Indian actress first attended the Met Gala together in 2017, although they weren’t dating then.

It was their first public appearance together.

They began dating a year later, in May 2018, after seeing each other again at that year’s Met Gala.

For Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, the Met Gala is more than just an annual fashion affair; it’s the beginning of their love story.

Nick Jonas proposed just months later, taking Priyanka Chopra to Crete for her birthday in July 2018, according to Elle.

In November 2018, Nick Jonas told Vogue: “I got down on one knee, again, and I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?

“No joke – she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.”

Priyanka Chopra said she was speechless. Nick Jonas then told her: “I’m going to put this ring on your finger now unless you have any objections.”

They got married in December 2018.

Later, Priyanka Chopra too shared details of the proposal by sharing a mirror selfie on Instagram.

She wrote: “To the greatest joy of my life. 2 years ago on this day, you asked me to marry you!

“I may have been speechless then but I say yes every moment of every day since.

“In the most unprecedented time, you made this weekend so incredibly memorable. Thank you for thinking of me all the time.

“I am the luckiest girl in the world! I love you @nickjonas”

The couple announced the birth of their daughter, Malti Marie Chopra Jonas, on January 21, 2022.

She was born on January 15, 2022, according to the birth certificate TMZ recently obtained.

Priyanka Chopra wrote: “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate.

“We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”
