Shortly after her arrival, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Maltese Marie was born at just 27 weeks, which was 12 weeks earlier than her April due date.

The baby was to remain in hospital until she was healthy enough to return home with her parents, a source close to the couple said.

It is unclear whether or not Malti Marie has been officially released from hospital.

‘Malti’ is considered a popular girls name in the Hindu community and has several meanings, including a ‘small fragrant flower’ or ‘jasmine flower’ and ‘moonlight.’

DailyMail.com’s insider dished in January that the A-list couple had been wanting to have a baby together for ‘quite sometime,’ but their schedules had gotten in the way of their family planning.

They eventually contacted an agency to explore their options and were connected with a woman in SoCal who they believed was a good match.

‘Priyanka doesn’t have any fertility issues preventing her from having a baby, but she is 39 now so it’s not getting any easier,’ the source said.

‘Their busy work schedules also mean that it’s difficult for them to physically be together to conceive when she is ovulating, so some time ago they went down the surrogacy route.

‘This is the woman’s fifth surrogacy. They met her and really liked her. The baby had been due in April but the surrogate ended up giving birth on Sunday, so she was very premature, ‘the insider added.

Nick and Priyanka waited for the baby to be healthy enough to move to a hospital in Los Angeles.

The source continued: ‘Priyanka had been trying to get her filming all done before the baby was due in April – but obviously this has completely thrown her plans.
