Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra welcomed their daughter, Malti, via surrogate about four months ago. Now Nick has recently opened up about his newfound parenting perspective.

After having their baby girl spend over 100 days in the NICU following her arrival through surrogacy, the couple’s journey to parenthood was not simple. The “Sucker For You” singer briefly addressed the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, with Variety on Wednesday, claiming things are “more intense” now that he’s a father.

“The weight of everything is much more intense. I think it’s now about trying to be as present as possible and as thoughtful as you can be for your family, but also for other people’s journeys.

I’m so grateful for [Malti Marie] and the wonderful perspective of being a parent,” 

Jonas took to Twitter after hearing about the awful massacre and provided a link to an organization called Moms Demand Action, which seeks to reduce gun violence.

“Kids shouldn’t have to worry about gun violence. They especially shouldn’t have to worry about gun violence at school. Absolutely heartbreaking.”

Nick stated that he cannot fathom the loss that those parents in Texas went through as their state’s gun laws failed them.

“As a father, as an uncle, I can’t not think about the kids and all the lives that were lost. I’m hoping for change to happen and we’ll see the end of this.”

Jonas has kept it quiet when it comes to his and Chopra’s baby. Even after Malti was born, the couple kept their surrogacy news a secret. However, the couple announced Malti’s return from the NICU while celebrating Mother’s Day earlier this month.
