Nick Jonas credits Priyanka Chopra for Malti’s ‘wacky’ sense of humor!

Oh, how we adore Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ little family! The couple’s 10-month-old daughter, Malti Marie, is a bundle of joy, and she clearly takes after her mom. During the latest episode of the “Read the Room” podcast, the Jonas brother himself joined the discussion and couldn’t help but gush about his precious daughter, and how her “brilliant” sense of humor and mischievous attitude come from none other than her wonderful mother.

In a lighthearted tone, Jonas shared, “It’s so encouraging to be around people like that [who don’t take themselves too seriously], I’m not talking about self-deprecating stuff, [but] like if you walk into a door, it’s funny. It’s not like, ‘Haha, you’re an idiot.’ It’s like, ‘We love you and we all saw it.’ I think it’s a really lovely quality to have in people. And obviously, my wife embodies that in spades.”

The rock star continued, “We’re seeing it now manifest in our daughter in a way that is brilliant. Her sense of humor and her ability to laugh at situations, and even her mischievous attitude, it’s great.”

You can’t help but admire how Jonas acknowledges and appreciates his wife’s influence on Malti’s personality. It’s clear that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and in this case, Malti has her mom’s wit and humor.

Now, let’s pause for a moment to appreciate the fact that Malti is “always laughing.” Even Podcast host Cavanaugh James, who has known Jonas for ages, chimed in, saying that Malti is always in high spirits whenever he visits the Jonas family.

But let’s not forget – Malti’s journey from birth to where she is today wasn’t without its share of challenges. She was born via a surrogate in January 2022 and had to spend almost 100 days in the NICU before she was able to join her parents at home.

Jonas candidly shared, “You realize quickly once you have a child that you can’t control everything. I think that was the biggest lesson for me at a stage in my life I didn’t expect to learn … You know, we went through a really tough couple of months at the start of her life and you have that vision [of] how it’s going to go throughout your whole life, and then it’s something completely different. Then, every day from there is completely different and presents its own set of challenges.”

Parenting is full of surprises and unexpected curveballs, and Jonas and Chopra Jonas have navigated it all like pros. Since Malti’s discharge from the hospital, they have thoroughly enjoyed every second with her. In fact, they brought her along on Jonas’ Jonas Brothers tour, and by the sounds of it, she’s been enjoying herself! But there’s no denying that being a dad comes with its own share of challenges, particularly when you’re also a global superstar. Take it from Jonas himself, who joked about a wrist injury he sustained from holding Malti: “I think this [new wrist injury] comes from holding our daughter. I sort of do this thing where I become her seat and she just points to where she wants to go. She likes to be looking forward when she’s being held and doesn’t like it to be an embrace. It’s like you’re her ride. And now that she’s getting bigger, thank God, yesterday when I felt this pain in my wrist, I was trying to figure out where it was coming from. ‘Oh, it’s the baby’s fault.’”

Oh, the joys of fatherhood! Jonas’ witty take on fatherly duties and the humorous situations he encounters as a parent to Malti show that he’s embracing it all with the same lightheartedness that defines his family. It’s parents like him and Chopra Jonas who show us that it’s okay to laugh at ourselves and not take life too seriously.

And now, we eagerly await more heartwarming updates and delightful anecdotes about little Malti as she grows up. She’s off to a great start with her radiant personality, infectious laughter, and mischievous sense of humor, all thanks to her amazing parents. Here’s to the Jonas-Chopra Jonas family and their endlessly entertaining and heartwarming journey as a family!
