This week, the actress took some time out from supporting her husband Nick Jonas on tour to enjoy mommy-daughter hangouts with the couple's adorable 1-year-old, Malti.

Chopra, 41, shared some snaps from their playtime on her Instagram Story Wednesday, including one photo that showed her holding Malti — who wore a floral patterned romper  — on a play mat. And it seems the cute tot may have inherited her dad’s love of music, as she was surrounded by colorful maracas, even raising one above her head in the shot.

“Play date with friends ????.” Chopra wrote over the sweet image.

Another snap captured Malti spending time in a ball pit with two little friends, while a third blurry photo from Chopra's Story seemed to capture the actress's daughter and a friend in motion as they played.

Chopra has previously opened up about how her life and priorities had shifted since she and Jonas welcomed Malti, who was born via surrogate on January 15 2022.

Speaking to TODAY in April 2023, the Citadel actress said she had a new understanding of "work-life balance", adding that no matter what, once her workday is over, it's time to give her baby girl a bath.

"After that, I'm not available. We do bath time, storytime, bedtime," she told the outlet. "And then it's our time (for me and Nick), whether we...have friends over or just sit together and watch a movie."

Baby Malti spent the first 100 days of her life in her NICU after being born via surrogate and in January, Chopra Jonas revealed to British Vogue in February that she, “didn't know if she would make it or not."

Malti was delivered a full trimester before her due date and her mom recalled her daughter being "smaller than my hand" when she was born.

"I was in the OR [operating room] when she came out. She was so small, smaller than my hand," she she told British Vogue. "I saw what the intensive-care nurses do. They do God's work. Nick and I were both standing there as they intubated her. I don't know how they even found what they needed [in her tiny body] to intubate her."

The actress said she and her musician husband spent the next three months making daily visits to the NICU, first at Rady Children's Hospital in La Jolla, California, and later at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.

On May 8, 2022, Jonas shared a moving tribute to his wife on Instagram for her first Mother's Day, revealing that their daughter was "finally home" from an extended stay in the NICU.

Meanwhile, her proud Daddy, 30, also opened up about his fatherhood journey during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show in January. 

Revealing that they’d thrown a “big party” for her first birthday, he said: "She went through a pretty wild journey in the early part of her life, so we had to celebrate in style. She's one. She's beautiful. It's amazing — the best."
