Priyanka Chopra has gone viral on social media after she joked about ‘expecting’ shortly after announcing that she and Nick Jonas would be parents.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her husband, singer-actor Nick Jonas, surprised their fans last Friday, announcing that they had become parents via surrogacy. Since the announcement, many of their fans have congratulated them on social media. One person dug up Priyanka’s clip in which she had said that she and Nick were ‘expecting’, only to deflect after seeing Nick’s expression.
This video is from the Jonas Brothers Family Roast which aired on Netflix in November. In it, Priyanka says, “If you don’t know, we’re the only couple who doesn’t have kids yet, which is why I’m excited to make this announcement..” As she said this, Nick raised his eyebrows and looked nervous. Priyanka continued, “Sorry, babe. Nick and I are expecting…” As the audience started cheering, she added, “to get drunk tonight and sleep in tomorrow!”
She pointed at Nick and said, “Your face was really funny when I said that”. To which the American singer replied, “Yeah, I was a bit concerned.”
As soon as Priyanka announced that she would become a parent, her fans realized she wasn’t joking. “So Priyanka wasn’t joking about expecting a baby soon with nick during the jonas brothers family roast special on netflix” a Twitter user wrote. Another added, “WAIT so priyanka’s ‘we’re expecting’ joke on Jonas Brothers Family Roast was NOT A LIE?!?!” Another fan commented, “Priyanka Chopra was definitely not kidding when she said they were expecting a baby in Jonas Brothers Family Roast.”
After announcing the arrival of her baby, Priyanka asked for privacy. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate.” We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.” Her post was showered with love from Kevin and Joe Jonas, who dropped heart emojis in the comments section. Lara Dutta, Mushtaq Sheikh, Mini Mathur, Lilly Singh, Neha Dhupia, Shefali Shah, Anusha Dandekar, and Bhumi Pednekar, among others, congratulated the couple.
