On January 21, 2022, Nick Jonas and his older wife Priyanka Chopra announced they’ve become parents after coming to terms with the baby’s surrogate birth mother in California. Also referred to by feminists as reproductive prostitution, the cost of surrogacy normally ranges from $90,000 to $150,000.
“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,” they both said in statements on social media.

The name and sex of the baby have not yet been officially confirmed. The celebrity couple started dating in May 2018 and got engaged just three months later. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra married in December 2018 and this is their first child together.
“We both know that that’s something that needs to happen, but it’s not something I think about very much. We’re both very driven, we love our work, we’re married to our work, and we’re both very supportive of each other’s work. So I’m sure it will happen in an organic way,” Priyanka told People in 2019 about wanting to have children.

According to Daily Mail, their baby daughter was born on Saturday, January 15, 12 weeks early via a rented womb in a Southern California hospital. BBC reports that the unregulated international baby trade has come under criticism for targeting vulnerable women.
“Their busy work schedules also mean that it’s difficult for them to physically be together to conceive when she is ovulating, so some time ago they went down the surrogacy route,” a source told the newspaper.
Nick Jonas is the third and final member of the Jonas Brothers to become a dad.

According to People, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are not concerned about their 10-year age difference and couldn’t care less about the gap. She will turn 40 on July 18, 2022, while Nick Jonas will celebrate his 30th birthday on September 16, 2022.
“The age difference is not a big deal to them whatsoever,” a source close to Jonas told the magazine.

According to the source, Nick is happy to have an older wife. He “loves dating older women, and if anything it makes Priyanka even more attractive to him.”
The former Disney star has “always been very mature for his age” and is “an old soul,” the inside source added.
While a woman’s peak reproductive years are between the late teens and late 20s, Nick has not been concerned about potentially not being able to have children with his wife.

While the then 26-year-old American singer wore a tie-less maroon Ermenegildo Zegna Couture XXX suit, his then 36-year-old taller Indian wife flashed her legs in a sexy high-low Galia Lahav Fall 2019 dress featuring a plunging neckline and a chain mail bodysuit underneath.
Priyanka accessorized with subtle black pumps and sparkling Chopard diamond earrings.
