Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her husband Nick Jonas announced on their Instagram pages Friday that they welcomed their first child together. She said a surrogate gave birth to the couple’s baby on January 15.

“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” the couple’s statement said.

The couple did not reveal their baby’s name or sex and asked for privacy “during this special time as we focus on our family.”

The couple had been dropping hints about their future plans all along — Chopra had told The Sunday Times in Jan 2021 that she wanted a large family. Jonas gushed about his wife and their future as parents, telling Extra in Feb 2021, “We’d be blessed with any child, son or daughter or anything. Just knocking [on] wood that it happens.”

Us Weekly confirmed that their first child is a girl.

Celebrities from both Bollywood and Hollywood congratulated the new parents. Katrina Kaif, Lily James, Kal Penn and Mindy Kaling sent their love in the comment section of the post.

"Kalpen Uncle" also offered his babysitting services to Chopra and jonas.

In 2018, the couple married in India after dating for four months.
