Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas welcomed their first child through surrogacy recently. The couple surprised fans when they announced this on their social media in a joint statement on Saturday. However, sources have said that they had been planning for the baby for quite some time. A new report claims the couple spent a considerable amount of time making their Los Angeles mansion kid-friendly over the past year.
On Saturday, Priyanka and Nick took to their Instagram to share this statement: “We are delighted to confirm that we have welcomed a baby boy via surrogate. We respectfully request privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.”
A recent report from People magazine quotes a source saying that Nick and Priyanka bought their mansion in Encino, Los Angeles, in 2019 with the kids in mind. “When they bought the house together, they had children in mind. They were hoping to have children and needed a place with lots of outdoor space and greenery,” the report quoted the source as saying.
The report adds that Priyanka and Nick “spent months renovating the house” after moving in because they “wanted it to be more family-friendly.”
Priyanka and Nick had purchased the house in 2019. The house broke records for being the most expensive house ever sold in Encino at $20 million. Reports have said that this house has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with ample outdoor space, an indoor gym, an infinity pool, and a backyard that overlooks the city.
While Priyanka and Nick have yet to divulge the gender of their baby, reports claim the couple’s newborn is a girl. Priyanka’s actor cousin, Meera Chopra, apparently confirmed this in an interaction.
