Back in November 2021, Netflix premiered a special called the Jonas Brothers Family Roast. Friends and family members took turns joking about Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas. When Chopra took the stage, she seemingly hinted at their upcoming baby news.

“I love that I married a man who, like myself, values family,” Chopra said. “If you don’t know, we’re the only couple who doesn’t have kids yet. Which is why I’m excited to make this announcement. Sorry, babe.”

Chopra continued, “We’re expecting…”

It is not surprising that Chopra and Jonas are “overjoyed” at having their first child. After all, the two of them have been open about their desire to expand their family.

“I definitely want to be a father someday,” Jonas once said in an interview (via Daily Mail). “I think that’s a real dream, and I think I have had to grow up pretty quick. With that, you could look at it two ways. You could say that was unfair, or you could say it has given me some real perspective at an early age. And I have seen a lot of life at an early age and I hope to be able to share that with a kid of my own someday.”

Meanwhile, Chopra revealed in an interview with InStyle that she wants to leave a legacy.

“I want to change the world a little bit. My big endgame is creating a formidable career and legacy for myself, but at the same time I want to have moved something,” Chopra Jonas explained. “I want my existence to have meant something. I want my kids to turn around and be like, ‘Yeah, that was my mom.'”
