Nick Jonas Reveals How He Fell In Love With Fiancée Priyanka Chopra
They might have made us wait MONTHS before confirming their whirlwind romance, but Nick Jonas finally spilled the beans on how he met fiancée, Priyanka Chopra. During his appearance on The Tonight Show, the former Jonas Brothers singer opened up about his relationship with the Quantico actress, as well as shared details about their beautiful engagement party.
Like many couples, the two were introduced by a friend. “We met through a friend, so we got connected first over text and we started talking for a while and it was about six months before we met up in person,” Nick explained. They then walked the Met Gala together (which he insists they went to as friends) in 2017, which led to lots of private and public speculation about their relationship.
“Our lives were kind of taking us in different places,” he told to host Jimmy Fallon. “Now cut to we’re engaged, the story wrote itself. We met up again – I think five months ago now – and it was kind of immediate and we sort of jumped right in and we’re very happy.”
Nick, who couldn’t help but blush the entire time he was telling the story, then revealed that his lady love was actually in the audience. This led Nick to reveal what his and Priyanka’s celebrity couple name is. Though many of us have established that their nickname is #Jopra, Nick confirmed it isn’t. When asked if they’ve chosen one, Priyanka chimed in — from the side of the stage— yelling “Prick!” However, he’s not totally on board with the name. “She likes Prick,” he said as she laughed in the crowd. “I don’t like that one very much.” HAHA, it’s definitely memorable.
Elsewhere in the interview, Nick shared some details on the couple’s recent engagement celebration with their family in Mumbai, India. “We did this beautiful Roka ceremony,” he said. “It’s a confirmation from both sides of the family that they approve of the engagement. There’s some beautiful prayers and a connection just for the family to have a chance to meet and hang out and get to know each other. It’s really incredible. We both left that ceremony so full of joy.”
“For she and I, I think it was just nice to have that time with the family first. Have that private moment then be able to share with the world afterward,” Nick added.
As we all know, Nick and Priyanka announced their engagement by sharing photos of the celebration on social media and according to Nick, it wasn’t until then that the news really sunk in. “And then we put it on Instagram and we’re like, ‘Oh my God. It’s official,'” he joked.
