Nick Jonas' daughter is thriving and things are going well for his little family.

The singer and actor, 29, spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday about his first child with his wife Priyanka Chopra Jonas, 39.

Their infant daughter, Malti Marie, was born in January — and from the sound of it, they are thrilled to be at home together.

"It is certainly life-changing," Jonas said of being a father. "[Malti] is amazing. It brings me a lot of joy."

While the 6-month-old did not have the easiest start to life, Jonas said that now "all is good."

As Nick spoke out about things at home, Priyanka posted a new photo of the couple's little one.

The actress shared a photo on Instagram showing herself and her friend Tamanna Dutt enjoying the outdoors with their children.

"22 years and counting ... and now with our babies,"

After their daughter was born via surrogate Jan. 15, Malti's first 100-plus days were spent in the neonatal intensive care unit, but she was able to join her parents in their family home following her NICU stay.

"Our little girl's home. She's just amazing. What a gift a baby is," the "Jealous" singer told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in May.

On Mother's Day, the new parents opened up about their journey and shared the first photo of Malti in coordinated posts on Instagram.

"Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a badass. Let's get it M!" they said.

A source previously told PEOPLE bringing Malti home was the "perfect Mother's Day gift" for the couple, who are "thrilled" their infant is finally home with them.

"They are already great parents," the insider said.
