Priyanka Chopra's fans are gushing over the adorable new pictures she shared of her daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas. 

The proud mum posted the images on her Instagram this week. Malti can be seen holding a Ganpati stuffed toy in the snaps. 

Ganpati (also known as Ganesha and Ganesh) is a Hindu deity. Priyanka shared the pictures to mark Ganesh Chaturthi, a Hindu festival that was celebrated on September 19. 

"A girl and her Ganpati. Always with us.. wherever we go.. #ganpatibappamorya #ganeshchaturthi," Priyanka captioned the photos. 

The 'Love Again' actress dressed her one-year-old in a white traditional dress, bangles, and a bindi. "She has grown so much and beautiful just like mama and papa," one of Priyanka's 89 million followers gushed. 

Another fan added: "This is so beautiful. May Lord Ganesha continue to bless our little princess Malti and your beautiful family!"

Priyanka and her husband Nick Jonas welcomed their first daughter together via surrogate in January 2022.

The couple named her after their mothers. Malti is the middle name of Priyanka's mother, Dr. Madhu Chopra. Marie is the middle name of Nick's mother, Denise Jonas.

According to the TODAY digital cover star, "Malti" is the middle name of her mother, Dr. Madhu Chopra, and "Marie" is the middle name of Nick's mom, Denise Jonas.

Malti was born four years after the couple's 2018 wedding celebrations in India.  They held two ceremonies in December of that year. The first was a Christian ceremony that took place at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. 

They hosted a traditional Hindu ceremony at the same venue one day later. 

Just like their wedding, Priyanka and Nick often celebrate each other's culture, especially on special holidays. 

"Marrying an Indian woman who is Hindu, I have learned so much about that religion and faith that it is so inspiring. We are raising a child who is going to have elements of biblical principles and also from the Hindu faith," Nick told Dax Shepard on the 'Armchair Expert' podcast.
