Nick Jonas opens up about Priyanka Chopra romance, reveals their celebrity couple name
Nick Jonas says he’s ready for married life after staying mum on his whirlwind romance with Priyanka Chopra.
“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,” he told Jimmy Fallon on a “Tonight Show” appearance on Friday night. And even though the two sparked romance rumors after attending the Met Gala together in 2017, “now cut to we’re engaged, the story wrote itself” he said.
“We met up again, I think 5 months ago now and it was kind of immediate and we sort of jumped right in and we’re very happy,” he said.
Jonas and Chopra who got engaged over the summer held off on publicly confirming the news until both of their families united in Mumbai for a traditional Roka ceremony.
“Basically its a confirmation from both sides of the family that they approve of the engagement and then theres some beautiful prayers and connection just for athe family to have a chance to meet and hang out and get to know each other,” the “Jealous” singer explained. “It’s really incredible, we both left that ceremony full of joy.
“A little different from Jersey,” he quipped of his native state.
But the 26 year old’s millennial side showed a bit, as he said despite a beautiful ceremony, their engagement felt real once it was on Instagram.
“Its funny we had this beautiful ceremony we felt so connected, our families all met, it was spiritual and then we put it on Instagram and we were like, ‘It’s official!'”
And as for a cute couple name, Chopra — who was in the audience — unfortunately isn’t partial to Page Six’s “Jopra.”
“She likes prick!” Jonas admitted.
