In a new interview, Priyanka Chopra discussed her surrogacy journey with singer-husband Nick Jonas. Due to the couple’s tendency to keep their family life private, their daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas made it into the magazine’s photo feature, where the two matched in red dresses, much to everyone’s surprise. Law Roach, Priyanka’s personal stylist, created their looks, and he recently spoke about working with Malti, his youngest client, in a new interview. Priyanka Chopra posed barefoot in a red midi dress with a statement choker in a photo from British Vogue’s February 2023 cover photoshoot. Priyanka hugged her daughter Malti close to her chest, showing off her baby’s red dress as she modeled with her back to the camera.
Malti, who turned one this month, was “so quiet” on the set, according to celebrity stylist Law Roach, but when asked to pose, she “just smiled.”
“(Malti) was ready to perform! She was so quiet, but when prompted to do anything she just smiled,” Law Roach said in a new interview with British Vogue. “It’s art,” he said of the mother-daughter photo, one of the most striking images from Priyanka’s latest magazine photoshoot. The stylist, who has worked with celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Megan Thee Stallion, Zendaya, and others, also stated that Priyanka and Malti’s photo should be ‘blown-up and framed’ to hang in their Los Angeles home.
In January, last year, Priyanka and Nick Jonas had shared a simple, picture-less post celebrating Malti’s arrival, writing, “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.” While their Instagram post received millions of “likes,” many people weighed in on the couple’s surrogacy decision. Priyanka said in a new British Vogue interview that she was accused of ‘outsourcing’ her pregnancy and’renting’ a womb, among other things. “I’ve developed a tough hide when people talk about me,” she said, adding, “But it’s so painful when they talk about my daughter. I’m like, ‘Keep her out of it.’ I know what it felt like to hold her little hands when they were trying to find her veins. So no, she’s not going to be gossip.”
