New Delhi: Global star Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram on Friday night to announce the arrival of her baby with Nick Jonas. The couple welcomed their newborn via a surrogate, stated Priyanka.

Take a look at her Instagram post:
As soon as the news broke, several media outlets started speculating about the gender of the Priyanka’s newborn.
As per DailyMail.com, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas became parents for the first time on Sunday after welcoming a daughter 12 weeks early.
The report also states that the baby girl, who was born via surrogate, arrived at 27 weeks at a Southern California hospital outside Los Angeles, where she’ll remain until she is healthy enough to return home with her parents, a source close to the couple said.
“Their busy work schedules also meant that it was difficult for them to physically be together to conceive when she is ovulating, so some time ago they went down the surrogacy route. The baby had been due in April but the surrogate ended up giving birth on Sunday, so she was very premature,” the report added.
The report further added that Priyanka wanted to get her filming schedule wrapped up before the baby came along in April. But obviously, this has completely thrown off her plans.
“There were rumors and speculation that the marriage was in trouble and that they might divorce, but that’s total nonsense. Nick and Priyanka are very happy together”, the news outlet concluded.
