Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, the popular star couple announced the arrival of their baby through surrogacy, recently. The renowned celebs of both Hollywood and Bollywood have been showering Priyanka and Nick with congratulatory messages on the arrival of their first child. However, writer Taslima Nasreen has taken an indirect dig at the couple's choice, thus sparking controversy.
"Surrogacy is possible because there are poor women. Rich people always want the existence of poverty in the society for their own interests. If you badly need to raise a child, adopt a homeless one. Children must inherit your traits---it is just a selfish narcissistic ego," wrote Taslima Nasreen on her Twitter post.
"How do those mothers feel when they get their readymade babies through surrogacy? Do they have the same feelings for the babies like the mothers who give birth to the babies?," the writer added. However, Taslima Nasreen's comments have not gone well with the netizens, thus leading to a social media outrage.

Seriously???? Woah.. have a some respect to them. It's their decision snd their baby. Ofcourse the baby will have the same amount of unconditional love and support just like any other baby. We don't know what was the reason and it's none of our business.— adithya skandan (@SkandanAdithya) January 22, 2022
A mother is someone who raises a child. Not someone who just gives birth. You are trying to hard to sound relevant. Do you know if Priyanka has any issues conceiving? Maybe surrogacy was their only choice?— Tanvinator (@TheTanvinator) January 22, 2022
Do you think before you tweet to label a child “ readymade” ?
Coming back to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, some unconfirmed reports suggest that the couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl 12 weeks early. The sources close to the couple suggest that the baby is still at the hospital under special care. Priyanka and Nick are expected to officially announce the name of their baby after she returns home.
