Doting mom and actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas blessed her Instagram feed with more pictures of her daughter Malti Marie. The first picture is from the present where the little munchkin is in the former Miss World's arms, while the second one is a rare frame that appears to be from the time she was a newborn. Malti's tiny hand rests on Priyanka's chin. Priyanka captioned it as, "Time really flies. starting the week right. #mondaymusings #nostalgia." The post also received a heart emoji from Nick Jonas. Check out the adorable post below.

Priyanka and Nick Jonas got married in a Christian and a Hindu ceremony in Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace on December 1 and 2, 2018. Later, the couple also hosted two receptions in Delhi and Mumbai. In January 2022, the two announced that they welcomed daughter Malti Marie via surrogacy.

While there were reports of Malti being born prematurely, in an interview with Today magazine, Priyanka shared that Malti spent over 100 days in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) after she was born. "[In the NICU], you know your child is alive because you can see their heartbeat (on the monitor). I couldn't sleep for days because now suddenly she was home without a monitor. I used to put my ear on her chest. I would wake up every couple of minutes just to see if she was OK. For weeks, this went on," she said.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka turned executive producer for the Oscar-nominated documentary 'To Kill a Tiger'. Directed by Nisha Pahuja, the project is based on a poor farmer whose 13-year-old daughter becomes the victim of a brutal sexual assault. The film takes place in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand (where Priyanka was born). Sharing the trailer, Priyanka wrote, "Trailer. Truly remarkable."

'To Kill a Tiger' has won two dozen prizes throughout the world, including Best Documentary at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the Amplify Voices Award at TIFF, and Best Feature Documentary at the Canadian Screen prizes. The Directors Guild of Canada recognised Pahuja with the 2023 Excellence in Documentary Award.

Apart from this, Priyanka Chopra will be seen in 'Heads of State', alongside John Cena and Idris Elba. She will also be seen in Farhan Akhtar's next directorial 'Jee Le Zaraa' alongside Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
