Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are engaged and we cannot handle it!
Apparently, two months was all it took Bollywood’s hottest export to Hollywood, actress Priyanka Chopra, to fall head over heels for singer Nick Jonas. While the two never made any official statements about having the hot’s for one another, their whirlwind romance—which has culminated into an engagement according to People’s magazine—has taken many by surprise.
The news first came out in the open when director Ali Abbas Zafar, took to Twitter to reveal that PeeCee had backed out of his upcoming film Bharat, co-starring Salman Khan in the “Nick of time,” for a “very very special reason.”
A director doesn’t simply gush about losing a lead heroine like Priyanka…not unless the reason is monumental! No wonder, the cryptic tweet was a reference to her impending nuptials with Nick Jonas. While an official confirmation from either Priyanka or Nick’s team is still awaited, here’s taking a look at the couple’s relationship timeline!
The Met Ball, May 2017
We may not have heard much about our desi girl PeeCee interacting with Nick Jonas, but apparently the two were seen together publicly for the first time at the 2017 Met Gala. Yes, the one where Priyanka wore a Ralph Lauren dress that led to some hilarious memes. N and P got along like a house on fire and kept in touch ever since!
The Jimmy Kimmel Interview, May 2017
Jimmy Kimmel was seen grilling the Quantico star about her relationship with Nick. Speaking about their appearance at the Met Gala the actress added that they walked the red carpet together as they were both dressed by the same designer. She said, “Yeah, we were on the same table and we already know each other. So he was like “Hey, you wanna go together?” And I was like, “Yeah, OK, let’s go together.” It ended up working out.” Throwing some jibes PeeCee’s way, Kimmel also said, “You know when one day you become the director of FBI, you will be subjected to a polygraph test. And I am going to make sure they are all Nick Jonas related questions.” He even poked fun at Nick’s age, calling him an “11 year old.”
The First Few Dates, May 2018
Since their first public appearance a year back, the two were seen spending some quality time as a couple at the “Beauty and the Beast” live concert in Los Angeles. Post that Priyanka was also seen hanging out with Nick’s squad during Memorial Day, towards the end of May.
The Wedding, June 2018
Nick has been in the news for dating several girls, but according to reports he’s never been this serious about anyone else before. His family got a chance to meet Priyanka for the first time at his cousin Rachel Tamburelli’s wedding and that is when they realized that he really had fallen for our home girl.
The India Trip, June 2018
Now, it was Mommy Chopra’s turn to meet Nick. The two came to India for a trip week long trip, where they not only met Madhu Chopra, attended the engagement of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta but also took a quick detour to Goa with Piyanka’s brother Siddharth and their cousin, actress Parineeti Chopra. The paps in India obviously went crazy tying to shoot the couple left, right and centre! However the real reason that made this trip special was the fact Priyanka and Nick made their relationship public on social media. While the two had been fawning over each other on Instagram for some time, it was during their Goa sojourn; Parineeti Chopra shared a video of herself dancing with Priyanka on ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani ‘ with Nick looking amused in the background.
The Brazil Trip, June 2018
After their trip to the subcontinent, the couple was spotted in Brazil. With Nick performing at the VillaMix Festival, the actress was seen stepping out in support of her boo, sharing instagram stories about his performance, peppered with some heart emojis.
The London Trip, July 2018
While June seemed loaded with action for the two of them, it was only in July that Nick finally popped the question. Apparently this happened during their trip to London, where the paps spotted the Bajirao Mastani star celebrate her 36th birthday with boyfriend Nick at The Chiltern Firehouse. Reportedly, Nick shut a Tiffany store in New York City to choose a special engagement ring for the actress!
And now that #Niyanka, #Prick or #NiYanka is finally happening we can’t help but wait for the wedding prep to begin!
