Quoted by Hindustan Times, Priyanka said, “I felt such freedom, I did it in my early thirties and I could continue on an ambitious warpath, I wanted to achieve, and I wanted to get to a certain place in my career. Also, I had not met the person I wanted to have children with. So, with that anxiety-inducing, and with my mom who is an ob-gyn, telling me ‘just do it’.”

She went on to explain how she always advises her younger friends that the biological clock is real and that it can get “harder to get pregnant after 35 and to carry to term,” especially when they have been working all their lives. She further added that she always knew she wanted to have kids. She said, “I always knew I wanted kids, which was one of the big reasons I didn't want to date Nick at that time 'cause I was like, 'I don't know if he wants kids at 25,' at that time.”
On the work front, Priyanka is all set to make her web-series debut with the Russo Brothers' Citadel. She has Farhan Akhtar’s Jee Le Zaraa, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt, and her Hollywood projects, Love Again and Ending Things in the pipeline.
