Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘s baby girl has been named Malti Marie Chopra Jonas, TMZ reported, citing the child’s birth certificate. The couple is, however, yet to confirm the news. 

The document obtained by the portal states that Malti was born just after 8 pm on January 15 in San Diego, California.

But why has the couple chosen this name for their daughter? Well, it seems like the name has a special connection to their mother.

The ‘Mary Kom’ actor’s mother’s name is Madhumalati Chopra and her Instagram account name is also Madhu Malati.

Marie, on the other hand, is the middle name of Nick’s mother Denise Jonas.

Recently, during a chat with Lilly Singh, the 38-year-old actor spoke about being a new parent.

“As a new parent right now, I keep thinking about that I will never be imposing my desires, fears, my upbringing on to my child. I have always believed that children come through you not from you. There is no belief like this is my child and I will shape everything. They come through you to find and build their own life. Recognising that really helped me, my parents were very non-judgemental in a certain way,” she said.
