Nick Jonas recently delighted fans with a rare professional snapshot capturing his special bond with his daughter, Malti Marie

The heartwarming photo, taken by photographer Nicolas Gerardin, showcases the proud father cradling his 16-month-old daughter while sporting a silver sequined jacket. Little Malti steals the show in her light blue ruffled dress, accessorized with a bracelet and white sandals, as she gazes ahead with pure innocence.

The picture, shared on Nick's social media, was likely taken on June 11 during the band's performance at Capital's Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium in England, where Nick donned the same eye-catching ensemble. 

Although the 30-year-old singer chose to keep his caption simple with a heart emoji, he has previously expressed how fatherhood has transformed him.

When the family is back home, Priyanka, 40, emphasizes being present for Malti's milestones and prioritizes her nighttime routine. As her own boss, she can schedule her commitments around these precious moments. Priyanka shared with E!
