Priyanka Chopra Says it Was Medically Necessary to Use a Surrogate

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s daughter Malti was carried by a surrogate.  And Priyanka has weathered her share of criticism for not doing things the natural way.

And she’s reluctant to talk about it, “I’ve been really protective of this chapter of my life with my daughter.  Because it’s not about my life only.  It’s hers too.”

But she does want to set the record straight.  She says, “I had medical complications.  This was a necessary step, and I’m so grateful I was in a position where I could do this.  Our surrogate was so generous, kind, lovely and funny, and she took care of this precious gift for us for six months.”   (Malti was born premature.)

She adds, “You don’t know what I’ve been through.  And just because I don’t want to make my medical history, or my daughter’s, public doesn’t give you the right to make up whatever the reasons were.”
