Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra want 'at least two' more children after welcoming baby via surrogate

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas hope to have "at least two children".

The 39-year-old actress recently announced the arrival of their first child, via a surrogate, and the loved-up couple intends to have even more kids in the coming years.

An insider told Us Weekly that friends of the celebrity duo are "excited" for the new parents, and the married couple is keen to have even more children in the future.

The actress - who married the pop star in 2018 - recently took to Instagram to announce the birth of their new baby.

Priyanka said on the photo-sharing platform: "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. (sic)"

The Hollywood star has previously spoken about her ambition to have kids.

Priyanka admitted she's "very fond of children" and that she planned to have kids within the next decade.

In 2018, she shared: "I am a very 'live in the today,' maximum 'live in the next two months' kind of person. But [in] ten years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it's going to happen in the next ten years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that.

"I'm very fond of children and I want to be able to do that."

Priyanka and Nick, 29, were actually forced to spend much of 2021 apart, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

And the actress recently confessed that the situation was "tough" for them to deal with at the time.

Priyanka - who filmed the drama series Citadel in London while her husband was based in the US - said: "This year has been really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can't travel to see your family."
