The name of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's daughter has been revealed. According to the birth certificate obtained by ET, the couple named their baby girl Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.

The name pays homage to Chopra's Indian roots. Malti, in Sanskrit, means small fragrant flower or moonlight. Also according to a birth certificate, Malti was born shortly after 8:00 p.m. PT on Jan. 15, 2022 at a hospital in San Diego, California.

While not much else is known about the little one, Jonas, 29, and Chopra, 39, announced that they welcomed their first child, via surrogate, in January.  

"We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much," the statement read on the pair’s respective Instagram accounts.  

 A source told ET in March that the couple are loving parenthood.

"Priyanka and Nick love being new parents and have been spending a lot of downtime at home,” the source shared. "The two have wanted children for a while and so happy it finally happened. Priyanka and Nick are private but have let close friends and family meet their baby."

On Sunday, the pair spent their first Easter as parents, with Chopra sharing a few photos from their holiday celebrations.

In the slideshow, Chopra and Jonas can be seen in front of a beautifully manicured hedge, complete with large Easter bunny ears on top, as well as dining on cupcakes. While Chopra shared selfies of both herself and Jonas, no photos of Malti were included in the celebratory post.

"Happy Easter from us. 🐣❤️🥰," the actress captioned the pics.

Jonas and Chopra wed in December 2018 with a series of celebrations, including both a Western ceremony and a traditional Hindu reception -- and have talked about having children together regularly. 

In January 2021, Chopra told The Sunday Times she wanted enough kids with Jonas to have a "cricket team."

"I do want children, as many as I can have," she added, before backtracking on her cricket team idea a bit -- which would take 11. "A cricket team? I’m not so sure."
