Priyanka Chopra hit the Snowflake Ball red carpet solo Tuesday in NYC, where she was honored for her work with UNICEF.
“Extra” caught up with the star, who just celebrated her one-year anniversary with husband Nick Jonas.
Priyanka recently gifted Nick with a puppy, surprising him by waking him up with his new German Shepherd, Gino.
“I landed from India and I picked up the puppy and went home with me and the puppy both as presents,” she said.
She also spoke about being honored at the Snowflake Ball, saying, “It means a lot getting acknowledged for the philanthropy I have done… It reminded me as well when my journey started with UNICEF… How much of a difference it makes who the children are surrounded by.”
Priyanka said she loves working with children through the organization. “Kids in general are the best people to be around," she said. "I love kids, but then to see kids whose lives are inspiring just because they are living in circumstances we couldn’t even fathom and still have hopes and smiles and laughter, it makes you so grateful to be alive every day.”
