Days before their wedding, actress Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas are opening up on their relationship in Vogue’s January issue!
Jonas revealed that he got down on one knee the first time they met at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars Party. He shared, “And I put my drink down, get on one knee — this is in front of a bunch of people — and I say, ‘You’re real. Where have you been all my life?’ Like, loud.”
They had been texting prior to their first meeting, thanks to his decision to DM her via Twitter. Months later, Nick and Priyanka would meet up again for a drink, which led to her inviting him back to her apartment, where her mom was staying.
Of their first date, Priyanka shared, “We hung out for a couple of hours. He patted my back before he left.”
He added, “There was no kiss. There was nothing.” After Priyanka demonstrated his back pat, Nick explained, “Your mom was in the house! I thought it was a respectful first night.”
Nick’s brother Joe also weighed in on their relationship, saying, “I think she kind of knocked him off his feet. He was just this little puppy dog.”
After not seeing each other for a year after the Met Gala, they would run into each other again at the same star-studded event this year. He would ask her on another date, sharing, “She walks into the Chateau, and I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and understanding about this next chapter of my life.”
By date three, Nick knew that he would marry Priyanka, popping the question in Crete. He said, “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.”
Priyanka’s relationship with Nick made her break one rule. She commented, “I’ve had that rule my whole life. Never publicly acknowledge a relationship. Ever.”
She admitted, “What is happening? I’ve not known myself like this. This guy turned me into such a girl! If I could blush, I’d be tomato red right now.”
Though they aren’t married yet, Priyanka already has her eyes on kids. She revealed, “My ultimate dream is to have kids. As many as I can.”
