Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s love story is pretty much an open book — we all know how the singer first reached out to the actress through social media.
However, that was barely the start of their dating history.
Apparently, the Bollywood celebrity decided she wanted to give Nick a chance when she saw the music video for his hit Close, which he performed with Tove Lo. Priyanka was particularly convinced when she saw him shirtless in the clip, she quipped.
In the 2016 video – the time when the Jumanji: The Next Level star was exploring being a solo artist after Jonas Brothers disbanded — Nick and Tove Lo, whose real name is Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson, were in a dark, empty warehouse (not exactly the most romantic setting, we know). As the song went on, the two started taking their clothes off until only their undergarments were left.
Quite a tidbit there, Priyanka! But the rest is as sweet as it can get:
Close was released in 2016 but it wasn’t until the following year when they sparked romance rumors as they appeared on the Met Gala red carpet together – and you know how people see appearances as big as this as the official confirmation of a couple.
Little did people know that Priyanka and Nick had been talking privately through social media as early as September 2016.
A certain mutual friend was allegedly responsible for linking the two, with the former Disney being the first to send a message to the Quantico star.
All the talking happened online, believe it or not, and they only met at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party in February 2017. But that first time was quite memorable because Nick got down to one knee and let out a loud pick-up line, as in while other big names were present.
A few months later, the now Mr.-and-Mrs. got together again, and this time, Priyanka invited the hunk to her New York apartment, which ended with Nick patting her because apparently, her mom was in the place.
Come May and they attended the fundraising gala together, both clad in Ralph Lauren, and as per big brother Joe Jonas, the 27-year-old was obviously head over heels for his date.
However, as much as their chemistry was obvious, it wasn’t until a year later when they met again. Since then, they spent numerous occasions together and left flirtatious comments on each other’s posts.
By July 2018, Nick, not throwing any punch line, got down on one knee and popped the question to Priyanka, who answered yes. In December of that year, they officially became husband and wife.
