“I was in the [operating room] When she came out,” Chopra, 40, recalled of his baby girl. “She was tiny, smaller than my hand.”

The “Quantico” alum praised NICU nurses for doing “God’s work.”

she said loudly, “I don’t know how they got what they needed [in her tiny body] to intubate him.

Chopra and Jonas, who “spent every day” at the hospital with their infant, told their Instagram followers in May 2022 that their “badass” baby was finally home.

However, Chopra admitted to the magazine that the child “looks like Nick.”

The former pageant queen has also been tight-lipped about her and Malti’s “medical history”, though she revealed that surrogacy was a “necessary” choice for her family.

“I had medical complications. I’m so grateful that I was in a position where I could do that” Chopra explained, calling her surrogate “so generous, kind, lovely and funny.”

Although she and the 30-year-old “Jealous” singer celebrated Malti’s birthday earlier this month, the new mom is still in fear as a “NICU mom.”

The “White Tiger” star said her stakes as a parent are “high,” noting she will “give up” those worries one day.

Citing an example, Chopra said, “The first time he had a solid morsel [of food]He gagged and I thought I killed him. [My parents and in-laws] talk to me about it.

The former Bollywood star and Jonas have been together since May 2018, making their “zero to 60” relationship official seven months later with a star-studded wedding in India.

The pair kept their growing family a secret until Malti’s birth in January 2022, with the “overjoyed” new parents requesting “privacy” to “focus” on their new roles.
