Hollywood star Priyanka Chopra on what drew her to her husband Nick Jonas

‘Quantico’ star Priyanka Chopra did not let her 10-year age difference with American singer Nick Jonas deter her from pursuing a possible fairytale love story. 

Speaking in a recent interview, the mother of one shared what initially drew her to Jonas, detailing how that one particular quality intrigued her. 

“The fact that he had the confidence to slide into my DMs and ask me out. Literally, his message was I’ve been told we should meet. How cocky, so sexy,” said the actress. 

The award-winning star went on to narrate the events that occurred in order for her and Jonas to meet up.

“Kevin, Nick’s older brother had watched Quantico and had told Nick as you guys should meet, and I was doing my TV show Quantico at the time, and I had a co-actor Graham who had done a movie with Nick, and he was also like you guys should meet,” said Chopra.

She revealed that she was in a toxic relationship at the time, and her co-actors from the TV show were not fond of her then-boyfriend. She admitted that she would always be on the phone in tears and they would be waiting for her. 

“I was in a relationship at the time and so was Nick but my co-actors hated my boyfriend at the time because I would always be on the phone in tears and they’d be waiting for me. They wanted me to leave the relationship, so my co-actor Graham would push for me to meet Nick, but I didn’t take it seriously because I was in the throws of my tumultuous relationship at that point, but Nick slid into my DMs,” she said.

It was only after she did her research on the singer that she agreed to meet up with him.

“Like any self-respecting girl, I googled him, and this video called ‘Close’ came up and I immediately send him my number,” Chopra recalled. 

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, undoubtedly one of the most popular couples of Hollywood, have been setting couple goals since they first got together. With their charming personalities and the way they complement each other, it’s no surprise that fans are smitten with them. 

The two love birds met for the first time in 2017, but their love story didn’t begin until a year later. They first caught each other’s eye at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in February 2017. Nick Jonas revealed in an interview that he saw Priyanka walk in, and he just had to go up to her and say hello, but it wasn’t until the Met Gala in May 2018 that they appeared in public together, fueling rumors about their relationship. However, they remained tight-lipped until they made their engagement official in August 2018. The engagement was nothing short of a fairytale, with Nick proposing to Priyanka on her birthday in Greece with a stunning diamond ring.

The couple then got married in a lavish wedding ceremony in Jodhpur, India, in December 2018. The wedding was a three-day affair, with both Hindu and Christian ceremonies, having been attended by their family and close friends.

Since then, the couple has been inseparable, and their love only seems to grow stronger by the day. They frequently share pictures and videos of each other on social media, giving fans a glimpse into their beautiful life together. Whether they’re on the red carpet or just spending time at home, their chemistry is undeniable.

In February 2021, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas announced that they had become parents to a baby boy, whom they named Jinasen. The couple has been open about their struggles with fertility, and their journey to parenthood has been an inspiration to many.

What makes Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas such a beloved couple is not just their love for each other but also their commitment to making the world a better place. Priyanka is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and has been an advocate for child rights for years. She also founded The Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education, which aims to provide education and healthcare to underprivileged children in India. Nick is a type 1 diabetes advocate and has been working to raise awareness about the disease. He also founded the Beyond Type 1 organization, which aims to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
