Talking to an Indian media outlet, Madhu said that she has not met her granddaughter given the concerns around the baby’s health and the coronavirus situation.

I haven’t seen her. I am here and she is in LA. We do Facetime once in a while. I think she is happy and joyous. This is all I can say for now. But maybe when I go and meet her in the middle of the year, I will be able to answer this better,” she said.

Madhu also said that she is waiting and hoping for her granddaughter to come to India. “I am always hoping. Never say never. It’s her country, she could come,” she added.

Sharing her joy of becoming a grandmother, Madhu said, “It is so joyful! I can’t tell you how my heart just goes…I think it’s something that I have been waiting for, for a very long time. It has happened now and I cannot conceal my happiness. I don’t even remember Priyanka and my son anymore. All I think about is the little one.”

While announcing the arrival of their child, Priyanka and Nick wrote on social media, “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during these special times as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”
