Priyanka Chopra Jonas She opened up about what it was like using a surrogate in a new cover story with British Vogue.
For context, this past January Priyanka and Nick Jonas Many people were surprised By announcing that they have welcomed a baby girl named Malty. As noted by British Vogue, the ad was met with some backlash from people who speculated that Priyanka was “hiring” a womb and “outsourcing” her pregnancy for vanity reasons.
While Priyanka wants to keep the details private, she told the newspaper, “I had medical complications. This was a necessary step, and I’m so grateful I was in a position to do it. Our surrogate was gracious, kind, lovely, and funny, and she took care of this precious gift for us for a long time.” six months “.
She continued, “I’ve developed a hard hiding when people talk about me. But it hurts so much when they talk about my daughter. I’m like, ‘Keep it off topic.'”
She continued, “I know the feeling of holding her little hands when they were trying to find her veins. So no, she wouldn’t be gossip.” “I’ve been really protective of this chapter of my life with my daughter. Because it’s not just about my life. It’s also hers.”
In fact, Maltese was born premature at six months and had to spend three months in the neonatal intensive care unit. “I was in the OR when I came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand,” Priyanka explained. “I saw what the intensive care nurses do. They are doing God’s work. Nick and I were standing there while she was intubated. I don’t know how they even found what they needed [in her tiny body] to intubate it.”
In the end, Priyanka had a clear message for people speculating as to why she decided to use a surrogate. She said, “You don’t know me. You don’t know what I’ve been through. And because I don’t want to write my medical history, or my daughter’s history, the public doesn’t give you the right to compensation for whatever reasons.”
