Whether you want to call them 'Prick' or 'Nickyanka' you can't deny that these two are a surprising and surprisingly cute couple. With the whole world watching what they're up to, we bring you some of their cutest moments, right from when they met to their wedding.
When Priyanka announced she was gonna marry someone from Hollywood, the reaction was pretty much what your relatives would’ve said, except this time it was the whole country. What a hullabulloo there was!
The grapevine says Priyanka and Nick Jonas’s love story actually began in 2016. Graham Rogers was Priyanka’s co-star in Quantico, and apparently Nick Jonas messaged him saying he thought Priyanka was wow! It didn’t stop there; the man knew he had to slide into her DMs, and he reportedly said, ‘I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet!’ She wrote back to him with her phone number, because her team could read her DMs. He sure knows how to get a girl’s number!
There was the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2017, and that’s where these two actually saw each other in real life. She walked in wearing Michael Kors, and Nick Jonas put down his drink, got down on one knee, and in front of all the people there, said, ‘You’re real, where have you been all my life?’ - really loudly. Maybe he's been watching too many movies but it worked, and they convinced Priyanka’s manager to let her stay longer for a drink, even though she had a car waiting outside to take her to the airport.
After that eventful party, Priyanka headed to India, and they continued texting each other. The next time they saw each other was three months later. Ralph Lauren had no idea what was brewing, but he invited both of them to wear his designs at the 2017 Met Gala. Can’t blame you if you didn’t really notice the two of them together - all anybody had eyes for was Priyanka’s dress, because it became the material of so many memes in an instant.
A week before the Met Gala, Priyanka and Nick met for drinks in New York city. And what did Priyanka do on her first date? They had one drink and she invited him over to her apartment. It so wasn’t like in the movies because when he went there, he met her mother. And how did he exit? By giving her a pat on her back. No matter how much you like a girl, who’s gonna gather the courage to kiss her when her mother’s watching?
They went to an LA Dodgers game together, and by this time people were beginning to take notice of the two of them making so many appearances together. Apparently that’s when Nick Jonas called his mum and said he knew he was gonna marry Priyanka Chopra.
Priyanka said that Nick turned to her and said he loved her drive, and it threw her off because the guys she had been with before had always told her the opposite! Quite a modern romantic, this Nick Jonas. Seems to know all the right things to say!
They headed to Crete to celebrate Priyanka’s birthday. Nick waited for a bit after midnight and just as her birthday ended, he got down on one knee and popped the question. He says she was quiet for 45 seconds, so he just told her he’d put the ring on her finger if she had no objections.
When Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s families decided to meet, her fans were in for a surprise when she posted about it online. We’ve never known her to be a big revealer when it comes to her personal life. And no matter how big a star you are, you do deserve some privacy. But she went all out, posting pictures of their dates, and them doing their thing, and we were all treated to an online edition of a modern day love story.
You can’t say you weren’t surprised when they got married - how many times have you read about celebrity relationships going bust, and this seemed to be moving so fast! But Nick Jonas said his parents got married really early. Priyanka Chopra also said her parents met for the first time in Bareilly, and they were married ten days after they first met.
When it came to the wedding, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas went out of their way to make sure we all knew what they were up to! And they made sure they included a lot of brands while they did this - Priyanka’s bridal shower was held at an eatery in Tiffany, and reports say she wore like a million dollars worth of Tiffany jewels! There’s a heist movie being written right there! And they also made a public statement about their wedding registry being on Amazon - if that isn’t an endorsement, I don’t know what is. But hey, you won’t be lying if you say you shopped in the same place Priyanka Chopra did. Nick Jonas put up sponsored posts for vodka and scooters. They received a lot of criticism for using their wedding as leverage for marketing themselves, and making money. But they’re entertainers - they spot opportunities! Why should a wedding stop them?
The year ended with them tying the knot. They had the wedding followed by three receptions! One in New Delhi, and two in Mumbai, then they went to Papa Jonas’s house to celebrate Christmas with all of Priyanka’s family in tow, and then they all went to Switzerland together for a New Year vacation. Once you hit 30, you’re kinda done with partying, but not Priyanka Chopra! This was a whole month of partying!
That’s not all though! After Switzerland they ended up in the Caribbean; they probably needed some sun, sea and sand after all that snow. And they’re gonna be throwing another massive reception in LA - with even the now royal Meghan Markle attending! Priyanka and Nick’s other friends from showbiz are gonna be there: Ellen, Kerry Washington, The Rock, and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.
What’s coming up for them? They just got married, and Priyanka had once said she wanted to have as many kids as possible. She's changed her mind though, and has now said she’s not gonna be taking any chances and will do the right thing at the right time. She’s always been wise and careful, this one!
That was one whirlwind romance they had right there! And with the number of biopics that are coming out, we won’t be surprised if there’s going to be one about this love story, maybe with a cheesy title. But there’s no need for that yet - just follow them on Instagram and they’ll tell you everything you need to know. I wonder what kind of movies she’ll pick after this - and how much time she’ll waste on jet lag starting now! She didn't get crowned Ms. World for nothing, she actually is all over the place!
