Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's fairytale romance is adding a new character.

The Jonas Brother member, 29, and the Indian actress, 39, shared Friday they have a new bundle of joy joining their family with an announcement on Instagram.

"We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby together via surrogate," Jonas and Chopra both wrote on their Instagram pages. "We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family."

In an interview with Vanity Fair published Jan. 13, Chopra toyed with the idea of adding a baby into their busy family dynamic adding that "big part" of the couple's future plans.

"By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens," she told the magazine.

Jonas and Chopra wed in 2018 in several ceremonies over three days in December. They initially hit it off in May of that same year after seeing "Beauty and the Beast" in concert with a group of friends at the Hollywood Bowl. "One of those friends was the woman that would become my best friend, my confidant, my muse, my beautiful wife," Jonas recalled a year later on Instagram.

The "Death Do Us Part" singer secretly popped the question in Greece just after Chopra's birthday in July 2018.

"I got down on one knee, again, and I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?" Jonas told Vogue in November 2018. "No joke – she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence." But of course, Chopra said yes.

The couple publicly announced their engagement a month later to their respective Instagram accounts following an engagement ceremony in Mumbai in August 2018.

"Happy Diwali to you and yours. Sending you all love and light," Jonas wrote on Instagram. "My beautiful wife has introduced me to so many wonderful Indian holidays and traditions. My heart is so full to be able to share this with our friends and family."
