Priyanka Chopra said she hopes this new phase of motherhood will be "amazing" for the Duchess of Sussex.

"I would, as a friend, just say that I'm really excited for her (Meghan)," the 36-year-old told People magazine at the JBL Fest in Las Vegas. PeeCee added, "I think this is a new phase in every woman's life and I hope hers is as amazing as she wants it to be."

Earlier this week, Kensington Palace confirmed the royal baby news and announced that the 'Suits' alum is expecting to deliver in the spring of 2019.

Prince Harry, sixth in line to the British throne, and Markle, got married on May 19 at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel.

Chopra, 36, and Markle, 37, have been close friends for several years. In May, the "Quantico" star attended Markle's wedding with Prince Harry in England.

Last month, Chopra said that Markle is "doing amazing" after taking on the role as the Duchess of Sussex. 

In an interview with Extra on Wednesday, Priyanka avoided talking about Meghan but admitted to having 'baby fever.'  'A few of my friends are having babies,' she said. 'It's that time. I guess I'm having baby fever now.'   

The Baywatch star is currently engaged to singer Nick Jonas.
