Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra reportedly spent 'months renovating' and baby proofing their Los Angeles home in the Encino neighborhood ahead of the arrival of their first child.

While the couple shocked the world when they announced they welcomed a baby girl via surrogate on Friday, the Quantico actress, 39, and singer, 29, had quietly been making the space 'more family-friendly' since late 2019. 

​​'When they bought the house together, they had children in mind,' a source told People. 'They were hoping to have kids and needed a place with a lot of outdoor space and greenery.'

With prime views across San Fernando Valley, the property boasts a large outdoor infinity pool and split-level gardens – perfect for raising a child.

Inside, the home is no less impressive, with guests welcomed through a large entry hall furnished with tasteful, wood-paneled ceilings and inset lighting.

Above, a glass embellished mezzanine floor looks down at the peers down at the entrance and an adjoining living room, where an enormous marble fire-place serves as a stunning focal point.

Upstairs there are no less than seven-bedrooms, while 11-bathrooms are situated throughout the property's 20,000 square-feet of space.

Additionally, the residence is equipped with a two-lane bowling alley, gymnasium, wet bar, indoor basketball court and enormous screening room available for the couple and their little one to use to their leisure.

The property is conveniently located just three miles from the $14.1 million home purchased by Nick's older brother Joe Jonas, 30, and his wife Sophie Turner.  

Speaking to the Architectural Digest in November 2019, Nick admitted he and Priyanka were keen to redesign their new home's interior in accordance with their differing tastes.

'We are overjoyed': The happy new parents announced the big news with their Instagram on Friday

He said: 'I'm on tour, and she's shooting a movie, so we're kind of between homes at the moment. But we're very excited to set up our home together and take those risks, try different things.

'We can go to the drawing board again if it's not feeling right and re-create it. We'll take our time to get that right because there's certainly no rush.'

Their recent baby news comes as a surprise as the couple had not revealed they were expecting a child, however they had been open about wanting kids.  

Earlier this month Priyanka revealed children were definitely in their 'future.'

The performer - who tied the knot with the Jonas Brothers star in 2018 - has insisted starting a family with her other half will happen when the time is right, but when they do become parents, she plans to 'slow down.'

Speaking in the February issue of Vanity Fair magazine - of which she is the cover star - Priyanka said: 'They're a big part of our desire for the future. By God's grace, when it happens, it happens.'

When the interviewer mentioned the couple's hectic work schedules, Priyanka quipped: 'No, we're not too busy to practice.'

The couple both agreed it's best to focus entirely on their future child when they do become parents.

She added: 'I'm okay with that. We're both okay with that.'

Sweet: Priyanka also said last year she wanted to have 'as many' children as she could have with her husband

While the Baywatch star has always been all about the 'next job', these days she is 'craving family life'.

She explained: 'My priority has always been the next job. I'm a very, very ambitious person. But I think the woman in me is craving balance. 

'I'm craving my family life. I'm craving being able to do things for the soul that I didn't do because I was just 'blinders on' and working.'

Priyanka also said last year she wanted to have 'as many' children as she could have with her husband.

'I do want children, as many as I can have,' she said in an interview with The Sunday Times, before clarifying that she does not want so many that she could start her own 'cricket team,' which has 11 players.

Chopra also spoke about having a relationship in the public eye, as she said she feels comforted knowing that Nick can relate to having fame as well.

'To me, I've been a public person for more than half my life. But that's not what dictates my decisions.'

'It's so comforting to find a person who is in your corner. Whatever I may be in my professional life or how the world perceives me, I'm just a girl trying to live her life in the best way possible.'

She concluded, 'I'm so grateful to have a partner in doing that.' 

Nick also expressed his desire for children during an interview with E! News last year, but said Priyanka's happiness was his number one priority.

'She is the most important piece of the puzzle, and it's obviously something we hope happens, and god willing, it comes together,' Nick told the site. 'You know, whatever is right. We're blessed to have each other and have a full heart for the future, I say, and things are out of your control. And the foundation of a couple is strong, and you're excited about the possibility of that.'

He added that he hoped 'for many, or whatever that is.'   

Interestingly, Priyanka cracked an 'expecting' joke last year on the Jonas Brothers Family Roast which got to her husband.

'If you don’t know, we are the only couple who doesn’t have kids yet. Which is why I’m excited to make this announcement. Sorry babe. Nick and I are expecting... to get drunk tonight and to sleep in tomorrow!'

Nick appeared nervous during the momentary pause in her joke, which Priyanka picked up on.   

'Your face was really funny when I said that,' she said to her husband.

'Yeah, I was a bit concerned,' he replied.

Going strong: Nick and Priyanka first got together after Jonas had his eye on Priyanka and made the first move in 2016 via text where they struck up a flirty conversation

Nick and Priyanka first got together after Jonas had his eye on Priyanka and made the first move in 2016 via text where they struck up a flirty conversation.

They met in person for the first time at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2017, where he publicly got down on one knee and said, 'You're real. Where have you been all my life.'

Things did not turn romantic - despite Nick being smitten with her - until they reconnected at the Met Gala in May 2018.

The pair became official weeks later, with Jonas telling his mom after their third date that he wanted to marry her.

He proposed two months later in July and they were married in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony in India - as well as a Christian one - in December 2018, to bind their love while representing both faiths and cultures.
