Happy belated Father’s Day to first-time dad Nick Jonas!
Five months after Priyanka Chopra and Nick welcomed their first child via surrogacy, the singer marked his first Father’s Day by sharing a photo of him and daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas sporting matching white Vans printed with her first initials. While each of Malti’s heels was marked with an M, Jonas’s own shoes read “MM’s Dad.”
“First Father’s Day with my little girl. Thank you @priyankachopra for the incredible Father Daughter sneakers and for making me a daddy I love you so much,” he wrote in the caption of the Instagram post. “Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and caretakers out there. ❤️”
Chopra shared the same image on her own feed, writing, “Happy 1st Father’s Day my love. To watch you with our little girl is my greatest joy..what an amazing day to come back home… I love you. Here’s to many more. ❤️”
On May 8 the couple shared their first photo of Malti Marie and revealed that she had spent her first 100 days in the ICU. “On this Mother’s Day, we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced,” Jonas wrote at the time. “After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is.”
