Bollywood diva, Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas are trending on our list of favourite couples and the world cannot get enough of them.
Speaking at The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where Jonas recently made an appearance, the 25-year-old singer shared his love story saying, “The story sort of wrote itself.”
He shared that Jonas and Chopra were connected through a friend and after the initial introduction, the two texted each other but didn’t actually meet in-person until about six months later.
In May 2017, they attended the Met Gala together. While Jonas said the two “had a great time”, he also insisted they went only friends.
“Our lives were kind of taking us in different places,” Jonas, 25, told Fallon.
It was only in the subsequent few weeks that the couple spent a lot of quality time together and started to spark romance rumours. While people around them started questioning what was cooking, Jonas maintained then that their relationship was just platonic.
“People thought we were being coy, and so did we until we cut to now [and] we’re engaged,” he said, adding: “So, the story sort of wrote itself.”
Jonas said it wasn’t until about five months ago that the two decided to give romance a chance.
“It was kind of immediate, and I think we just knew it was right and jumped right in,” he said. “And we’re very happy.”
Jonas and Chopra, who got engaged in July, formalised their relationship with a traditional Indian ‘roka’ (engagement) ceremony in Mumbai, India, last month. Speaking of the ceremony, Nick said that it was special, as it was a private affair with just close family in attendance. He called it a spiritual experience and when it was done, it “felt like an unexpected moment for the two of them.”
The couple has recently been spotted spending time together and were also seen at Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary Event in New York. Priyanka was also photographed attending the New York Fashion Week.
