It is said that it is perfectly normal to welcome a baby into your life either by conceiving, adopting or surrogacy. However, people always find reasons to troll and mentally harass others. The recent target of trollers is Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who welcomed her first child via surrogacy. While a section of society is happy for the new mommy in the town, another set of netizens passed nasty remarks on her for not embracing motherhood naturally to welcome her first baby in the world.
On January 22, 2022, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her husband, Nick Jonas had taken to their respective social media handles to announce the biggest ‘good news’ of their lives. Sharing a picture message, Priyanka and Nick had revealed that they had welcomed their first baby via surrogacy and had requested privacy from everyone so that their family could celebrate the occasion. Their note could be read as:
"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."
A few hours back, Priyanka Chopra Jonas made a comeback on Instagram and dropped the first pictures after her baby’s birth. The actress shared two mirrorfies that she clicked in her car while soaking in the sun. The glow on her face was unmissable and it was evident that she was happy after embracing motherhood. Sharing the pictures, Priyanka wrote:
“The light feels right.”
As soon as Priyanka shared the pictures on her IG handle, a section of netizens started questioning her choice of becoming a mother. As Priyanka welcomed her baby via surrogacy, netizens started making fun of her. While one user commented, “She paid for baby,” another one wrote, “She loves her dog more than her child. Because she is not pregnant.”
While some netizens were trolling her, another section of netizens were happy and gave a grand welcome to the new mommy on social media. While one user commented, “Hi Mommy,” another one wrote, “Omg welcome back mama.” One user asked about the baby and commented, “How you doing? Hope you and your little angel are doing well.” Some even wondered if there was an infant car seat at the back of Priyanka in the picture, and commented, “Is it a infant car seat behind her,” and “Is that a baby car seat in the back?”
According to a report in the Daily Mail, a source close to the couple had revealed that Nick and Priyanka 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. Nick and Priyanka were connected with a woman in Southern California by an agency, and they had believed her to be a good match. 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."
For the unversed, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas had got married on December 1, 2021, at a royal wedding ceremony at Umaid Bhawan.
