Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra made sure that Malti Marie would always be present at special milestones. That’s probably why they allowed her to make her first public appearance at Jonas’ Hollywood Walk of Fame induction with the Jonas brothers.
In his acceptance speech, the singer acknowledged both his wife and daughter, telling the audience how much he loved them. “To my beautiful wife, you are the calm in the crazy, the rock in the storm, and I love being married to you. It is the greatest gift. I love being a parent with you,” he said. “So, Malti Marie … hi, baby. I can’t wait to come here with you in 15 years and embarrass you in front of your friends.”
Jonas has always been open about his fatherhood experience, with the singer telling Variety in May 2022 that he developed a deeper sense of responsibility now that he has Malti to raise. “The weight of everything is much more intense,” he shared. “I think it’s now about trying to be as present as possible and as thoughtful as you can be for your family, but also for other people’s journeys. I’m so grateful for [Malti] and the wonderful perspective of being a parent.”
