Nick Jonas called his daughter, Malti, a “gift” following the infant’s extended NICU stay.

“Life is beautiful,” the Jonas Brothers member, 29, gushed during a “Today” show appearance when asked about becoming a new dad.

“She’s a gift,” the “Jealous” singer added. “We’re just so blessed.”

Jonas and the “Quantico” alum, 39, revealed in January that their daughter had arrived via surrogate.

The couple shared a photo of their baby girl earlier this month, revealing that Malti spent “100 plus days in the NICU” and was finally home.

“Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is,” the actress captioned the May 8 Instagram photo with her husband and little one, calling their journey to parenthood a “rollercoaster.”

“Babe, you inspire me and every way, and you are taking to this new role with such ease and steadiness,” the “Dancing With Myself” star wrote via Instagram. “I am so grateful to be on this journey with you. You are already an incredible mother.”
