Priyanka Chopra’s Mom Gushes Over Future Son-in-Law Nick Jonas
In just a short amount of time, Nick Jonas has already won over the heart of one of the most important people in Priyanka Chopra’s life. A few days after the newly-engaged couple celebrated their relationship with an extravagant party in India, the Quantico star’s mom, Madhu, has spoken out about the Jonas Brother singer, revealing he’s made quite an impression on her.
“Priyanka has always been ambitious about her career and I was just supporting her and wishing the best for her, as a mother. I used to pester her, but in the last two [to] three years, I had stopped,” Madhu told After Hrs, according to DNA India.com. “I had given up.”
But because destiny works in mysterious ways, Priyanka eventually found Nick, who Madhu describes as “calm and mature.” She added, “He’s a wonderful person and everyone in the family just loves him. He’s so polite and respectful towards elders. What more can a mother want!”
Madhu also recognized Nick and Priyanka’s lightning-fast engagement, adding that she trusts her daughter’s decision. “I always trust Priyanka’s judgment; she’s not impulsive,” she said. “She gave it a lot of thought and when she decided on something, I was sure it would be good.”
The two reportedly started dating in May, and they’ve had a whirlwind romance ever since. Then, reports that they were engaged began to swirl in July with the couple finally confirming the news over the weekend with a series of Instagram pictures from their engagement party.
Both Priyanka and Nick’s families attended the event, but while his brothers, Joe and Kevin couldn’t make it, his parents did, and Madhu seemed to approve of them. She also said that she was very impressed at how seriously Nick took the roka ceremony, which is a traditional Indian ceremony that occurs before an Indian wedding and marks the union of the bride and groom’s families.
“Nick enjoyed the prayers during the puja,” she said. “It was a new thing for him and he took it seriously. He followed what our panditji said, and chanted the Sanskrit mantras accurately. Both he and his parents did it beautifully. They are nice people.”
In the interview, Madhu revealed that she’s not rushing Nick and Priyanka’s wedding plans, but she would love for her daughter to have a traditional Indian wedding. As for the wedding date, Madhu said it hasn’t been determined yet. “They haven’t decided on a wedding date yet. It’s too soon,” she confirmed. “Both of them have work commitments right now which they need to finish. They will take some time to decide where they want it and when they want it.”
Fair enough! The wedding will come, we just all need to be patient – even though all we can think about is the beautiful babies Nick and Priyanka will have someday!
