According to a report in the Daily Mail, a source close to Nick and Priyanka had revealed that the couple wanted to have a baby together for quite some time. However, their schedules had hampered their family planning. The source had added that owing to their busy schedule, the couple had explored other options. The source was quoted as saying:
"Priyanka doesn't have any fertility issues preventing her from having a baby, but she is 39 now so it's not getting any easier. Their busy work schedules also mean that it's difficult for them to physically be together to conceive when she is ovulating, so some time ago they went down the surrogacy route. This is the woman's fifth surrogacy. They met her and really liked her."
On the professional front, Priyanka was last seen in the movie, The Matrix Resurrections!
