Nick Jonas offered a look at his wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ birthday month, which was full of yachts, family beach trips, and a pit stop at Wimbledon. Jonas posted a carousel of photos, including shots of her in bikinis with him and two photos of their daughter Malti hanging poolside and on the beach. “July was a movie. ❤️” he wrote.
Jonas spoke adoringly about one-year-old Malti in an April interview with ELLE. “She’s got me wrapped around her finger,” she said. “I don’t even know how I’ll ever discipline her because I just don’t have it in me. I was so close to losing her so many times that she can get away with anything and I just want to see her happy. I want her to be the happiest. She’s a super smiley, happy baby, and that’s all my goal is—to see her joyous. Every time she smiles, it lights up my world, and that’s all I want to do.”
She added that becoming a mother has taught her “just how much you can love something and how viciously you’ll protect it. I’ve seen my mom rip people when I’ve been hurt and I just never understood it. I was like, ‘Mom, chill out. What are you doing?’ Now I get it. I would take someone out.”
She also shared that she and her husband want Malti to see the world—something he posted proof of the family doing this past month. “I was never left at home with a nanny; I was always with family and friends,” Jonas said of her own experience. “I think I had a sense of confidence because I was always around people who loved me, so we’ve really tried to emulate that. Malti is always with her family and she can go anywhere with us. It was very important to us to be able to expose her to just life and its beautiful gifts.”
