A DailyMail.com insider said in January that the A-list couple had been wanting to have a baby together for ‘quite a while’, but their schedules were getting in the way of their family plans.

They ended up contacting an agency to explore their options and hooked up with a woman at SoCal they believed was a good fit.

“Priyanka doesn’t have any fertility issues preventing her from having a baby, but she’s 39 now, so it’s not getting any easier,” the source said.

‘Their busy work schedules also made it difficult for them to physically get pregnant together while she was ovulating, so a while ago they went the surrogacy route.

‘This is the woman’s fifth surrogacy. They met him and liked him very much. The baby was due in April but the surrogate ended up giving birth on Sunday, so she was very premature,” the insider added.

Nick and Priyanka wait for the baby to be healthy enough to be transferred to a hospital in Los Angeles.

The source continued: ‘Priyanka had been trying to finish filming before the baby was due in April – but it’s clear this is really messing up her plans.
