Nick Jonas Jokes about All the Unsolicited Parenting Advice He Gets

Nick Jonas may be new to fatherhood but he’s already being baptized into the parenting world whether he likes it or not. The singer and husband of Priyanka Chopra recently brought their first baby home after a 100-day stay in the NICU and sat down with Jimmy Fallon to chat about it.

In addition to navigating the unavoidable sleep deprivation and all-around adjustment to taking care of a tiny human, Jonas is also experiencing his first round of unsolicited parenting advice. And Mr. Jonas—we’ve all been there.

Sitting down for the interview, Jimmy Fallon asks straight up, “Is everyone giving you advice, giving you books?” A dad himself, Fallon knows just what happens when you become a parent—you instantly become a parenting expert and thus, must bestow your worldly wisdom upon new parents (insert sarcasm).

But Jonas takes it in stride, commenting, “Turns out everybody I know is a newborn care specialist. All these PhDs I didn’t know they had.” We all know dishing out parenting advice usually comes with the best of intentions, but it doesn’t mean it’s not obnoxious, even to celebs.

In the meantime, Jonas looks like he’s settling into his role as dad quite well (we don’t even see bags under his eyes!). He and Chopra brought home Malti Marie around Mother’s Day after she was welcomed via surrogate and spent over three months in the NICU.

We haven’t seen much of the sweet baby girl as the family of three settles into a routine, but after so much time in the NICU, we don’t blame them one bit. After such an intense experience, we bet Nick will be sharing his own parenting advice in the near future. Hey, it’s a rite of passage!
