Priyanka Chopra, the global icon known for her versatile roles in both Bollywood and Hollywood, recently shared some adorable insights into her life as a working mom. In a candid interview with Quint Neon, the 40-year-old actress opened up about the challenges of balancing her career with motherhood, particularly in the eyes of her two-year-old daughter, Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.

Chopra, who shares Malti with her husband, musician Nick Jonas, revealed that their precocious toddler has her own unique interpretation of her mother’s profession. According to Priyanka, Malti believes that her mom “does make-believe for a living.” It’s a charming perspective that highlights the innocence of childhood and the imaginative world that young minds often inhabit.

Chopra said, “I was raised by a working mom and my mom’s sisters were working moms. Even the moms who are not working (hold a job) are working all day. Working women don’t get enough credit… you have to surround yourself with a village, you have to make sure that you find a supportive partner.”

The actress, who was raised by a working mother herself, Madhu Chopra, expressed empathy for the struggles faced by working women. Reflecting on her upbringing, Priyanka recalled accompanying her mother to hospitals, where she would spend time in the nurses’ station, and visiting her father’s office. These experiences, she believes, helped her understand the importance of her parents’ work and the sacrifices they made while she pursued her education.

Despite having a supportive network of caregivers for Malti, Priyanka admitted to experiencing bouts of guilt when she has to leave her daughter to fulfill work commitments. However, she has found a solution by having Malti accompany her on set whenever possible. This way, she can strike a balance between her professional obligations and her role as a mother, ensuring that she remains present in her daughter’s life even during busy filming schedules.

Joined by Nick Jonas, they explored Mumbai, Ayodhya, and Noida, creating cherished memories together.
