The post marked the most revealing glimpse fans have had of the little one since the couple welcomed her via surrogate on January 15, 2022. It is also the first time that people have partially seen her face online.
In the snap on Chopra’s Instagram Story, their daughter sported a pink, knitted beanie cap covering her eyes and was strapped into a car seat with the caption, “I mean...” alongside two heart face emojis.
The couple, who have been married since 2018, on Mother’s Day paid tribute to the hospital that cared for Malti after she was born prematurely.
An Instagram photo showed Chopra holding the tiny baby to her chest as her husband tenderly held the tot’s hand. Her face was covered by a white heart.
Chopra, 40, described their parenthood as a “rollercoaster” experience in a lengthy caption.
She wrote: “On this Mother’s Day we can’t help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we’ve been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced.
“After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is.
“We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every Doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children’s La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way.
“Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a bada**. Let’s get it MM! Mommy and Daddy love you.”
She concluded the post by giving a nod to “all the mothers and caretakers in my life and out there”, remarking that they make it look “so easy” and thanking them.
The star also gave special mention to the singer, songwriter and actor Jonas, 30, writing: “Also.. there is no one I’d rather do this with than you. Thank you for making me a mama @nickjonas I love you.”
