Priyanka Chopra recalls when she feared her daughter wouldn’t make it
Priyanka Chopra has recalled the heartbreaking moment when she thought she and husband Nick Jonas’ baby Malti Marie wouldn’t make it.
The Quantico The star revealed her baby girl was born “extremely early” at just six months via surrogacy in an interview for the cover of British Vogue.
“I was in the [operating room] when she came out,” the global sensation revealed. “She was so small, smaller than my hand.”
Chopra went on to praise the NICU nurses for doing “God’s work” to care for their “precious gift”.
“I’ve seen what intensive care nurses do. They are doing God’s work,” she said. “Nick and I were both standing there as they intubated him.”
“I don’t know how they even found what they needed [in her tiny body] to intubate her,” Chopra added. “We spent every day with her on my chest, on my husband’s chest.”
“I didn’t know if she would make it or not,” she said before revealing that she had medical complications that led her to opt for surrogacy.
“I had medical complications, [so] it was a necessary step, and I’m so grateful that I was able to do it,” she said.
“Our surrogate was so generous, kind, adorable and funny, and she took care of this precious gift for us for six months,” she shared with the outlet.
