Former Disney Channel star Nick Jonas and actress Priyanka Chopra are one of Hollywood’s hottest power couples. The pair, whose love story began when the Jonas Brothers singer slid into her DMs, look more in love every time we see them! With news that they’re now sharing that love with a new baby, we’re looking back at the timeline of their romance!
We had no clue about this at the time but it was only in December 2018 during an interview, Nick revealed that he *sneakily* sent a DM to Priyanka on September 8, 2016 (while the only ones that slide in my DMs are bots.)
He texted saying, “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet.”, with her responding, “My team can read this. Why don’t you just text me.”
They continued to text for a long time and but it was only at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty that they met IRL. Ngl we thought it was the Met Gala.
So, what happened at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty? Nick revealed in an interview that when he first saw Priyanka enter the room, he *actually* went down on one knee amidst the crowd to say, “you’re real. Where have you been all my life?”
Here comes the Met Gala in 2017 where Ralph Lauren called in the two to wear his label at the event. Just a few weeks before the event, Nick and Priyanka went out for a drink and also spent some time at her apartment.
And, we all remember the internet meltdown that happened after the two walked the Met Gala red carpet together, don’t we?
Fast forward a year later when Us Weekly revealed that the two were officially dating. “They are dating and it’s brand new,” a source said. “It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other.”
Then, we see some flirty IG comments with Nick commenting, “That smile ❤️” on Priyanka’s Instagram post at In-N-Out.
Priyanka too commented on Nick’s koala bear post with, “Who is cuter?”
Priyanka celebrated her 36th birthday with Nick in London where he proposed to the Quantico star.
Believe it or not, Nick shut down a Tiffany & Co. store to select an engagement ring for his beau. “I got down on one knee, again, and I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me? No joke—she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.” After that, he told Priyanka, “I’m going to put this ring on your finger now unless you have any objections.” How cute!
Priyanka mentioned to Elle UK later in Feb 2021 that, “I didn’t expect the proposal at that point…It was two months. I thought it would happen, but it was still a complete shock. [But] I relinquished control and I just went with it. We were just sporadically meeting for about two years”, the actress said. “We were texting and stuff, and there may have been a part of me that wanted something serious. But I was taking a hiatus from guys at that point. I didn’t want anyone romantically.
But there’s always been something about Nick, which is why we always ended up staying in touch, no matter where we were. One thing to know about my husband is that when he makes up his mind, he’ll get what he wants! When he knows, he knows. There’s such sublime confidence to it that you can’t help but be like, “OK.”’
They made the engagement official through a traditional Indian Roka ceremony, surrounded by close friends and families.
Remember their first meet-up through Ralph Lauren? This time, they attended the event as a couple for Ralph Lauren’s 50th-anniversary at the New York Fashion Week.
The two made a pit stop in India to attend a charity sports event. Priyanka shared a snipped from the game with the caption, “Bae in Bombae.”
The soon-to-be bride hosted a bachelorette party at NYC’s Tiffany & Co’s Blue Box Cafe. How gorgeous are the photos? *heart eyes*
But wait, there are more bachelorette parties on the way. From extravagant costumes to a pajama themed party, she’s living the dream.
The duo got married at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The couple shared a series of photos from the Christian and Hindu ceremonies on IG with Priyanka adding the caption, “And forever starts now… ❤️ @nickjonas.” while Nick’s caption read, “Happiest day of my life. @priyankachopra.”
For a honeymoon getaway (which Nick planned out btw), the couple went to the Caribbean and Priyanka had *no clue*where they were going until they landed at the destination.
Nick later shared a photo of the newlyweds on their honeymoon:
The couple made their comeback to the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party in 2019.
In the Jonas Brothers comeback single “Sucker“, Chopra starred as Nick’s love interest in the music video.
Obv, the single was a complete hit. And, when it topped the charts, Nick surprised his wife with a Maybach to kickstart the celebration.
This month had events written all over it. The two attended a series of renowned events such as the Billboard Music Awards, Met Gala, and Cannes Film Festival.
Nick shared a super cute birthday tribute to his wife on IG. He wrote, “Light of my world. My whole heart. I love you, baby. Happy birthday.”
On the Virgo singer’s birthday, Priyanka shared a montage of the couple from the past years
A new addition to the family! The actress surprised her beau with a German shepherd puppy, Gino. Watch his reaction here:
The couple hit their one-year wedding anniversary and the couple shared romantic IG posts in honour of the new milestone in their relationship.
Priyanka features in his band’s music video “What a Man Gotta Do”, alongside Danielle Jonas and Sophie Turner.
Nick celebrated his first Holi, also known as the festival of colours, “My first Holi! (Five days early) So much fun celebrating with such incredible people here in my second home in India.”
Their first date together was on May 26 and to mark the occasion after two whole years together they shared throwback photos.
Priyanka captioned the post, “2 years ago today we took our very first picture together. Every day since then you have brought me endless joy and happiness. I love you @nickjonas. Thank you for making our life together so incredible. Here’s to many more date nights…”
Like they hadn’t already taken home the award for best IG couple posts. For their second wedding anniversary, Priyanka shared a cute post to commemorate the day, “Happy 2 year anniversary to the love of my life. Always by my side. My strength. My weakness. My all. I love you @nickjonas.”
With the Jonas brother going on the “Remember This” tour, Priyanka joined in to support her husband.
The two celebrated their first Festival of Lights at their home and shared the photos on IG with the caption, “Our first Diwali in our first home together. This one will always be special. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this evening so special. You’re my angels.
To everyone who honoured our home and my culture by not only dressing the part but dancing the night away, you made me feel like I was back home. And to the best husband and partner @nickjonas, you are what dreams are made of. I love you. My heart is so grateful and full. Happy Diwali”
The couple announced that they welcomed their first baby together via surrogate.
