AceShowbiz - Nick Jonas is grateful to have Priyanka Chopra as a "teammate" in parenting. Having been married to the "Baywatch" star for around three years before they welcomed Malti Marie via surrogate, the one-third of the Jonas Brothers admitted his actress wife has been his rock throughout the whole process of their baby girl spending more than 100 days in intensive care.
"What we shared on social media was the feeling that we had - the gratitude, obviously, to have our baby home, but also for each and every person that was a part of her journey in the hospital. It was eye-opening in a lot of ways, " the 29-year-old pop star said. "Priyanka was a rock the whole time and continues to be. I'm grateful to have a teammate in Pri."
The former Disney star, who shot to fame alongside his older brothers 34-year-old Kevin Jonas and 32-year-old Joe Jonas in the early 2000s, was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes at the age of 13 and explained how "powerful" social media can be when it comes to coping with the insulin disorder.
He told PEOPLE magazine, "It was really important that people know that whatever their journey is or whatever challenges might come up, you're not alone. The power of social media is that it connects us all and makes this very big world a little bit smaller.."
Meanwhile, Priyanka thanked her husband for "being so present" even though she watched him be so creative in her career throughout their marriage and her pregnancy. The 38-year-old said, "I've watched Nick create music, write scripts, launch businesses, among many other things, all while being so present. He's an incredible son, brother, husband, friend and father. I don't know how I got so lucky."
