Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are completely smitten with each other despite their 10-year age gap. Their fairytale romance began in the most remarkable way and has progressed for almost three years.
Indian actress, Priyanka Chopra’s relationship with Nick Jonas is the substance of which fairytales are made. Defying varying factors like age, religion, and race, the twosome found their way to each other’s hearts and became an enviable couple.
Interestingly, the 38-year-old Bollywood star is ten years older than her beau, who is twenty-eight. Notwithstanding, both entertainment icons have remained inseparable in the last three years. Here is a glimpse into their whirlwind romance.
THE ELEVEN MAGIC WORDS
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ romance began with a simple DM on Twitter. The Jonas Brothers bandmate left a message for his to-be-bride on Twitter in September 2016.
His message, “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet,” attracted a corny response from Chopra. She notified the singer that her team could read her DMs before advising him to text her instead.
He did! And those eleven words gave rise to their initial spark, and five months of flirty text conversations.
THEIR DRAMATIC FIRST MEETING
Although things began heating up between the couple from then on, they never met in person until February 2017. They ran into each other in a remarkable way at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
Right after catching a glimpse of his mystery woman, the actor rushed up to her, got down on one knee, and proclaimed, “You’re real. Where have you been all my life?”
Okay… not quite his most flattering move, but Jonas sure deserves some points for confidence!
THEIR RED CARPET DEBUT
