The couple has not officially revealed the name of their daughter, however, according to a copy of the birth certificate obtained by TMZ, the baby has been named Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.

According to the birth certificate, the couple’s daughter was born just after 8 PM at a San Diego hospital on January 15. Following the birth, the couple announced they were overjoyed after sharing they have now embraced parenthood.
