Everything We Know About Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Engagement
Several media outlets have confirmed that the singer and the actress are keeping with this summer’s trend as the latest celebrity couple celebrating their engagement after just a few months of dating.
People reported that Jonas recently closed down a Tiffany & Co. store to purchase a ring for Chopra. He then proposed to her in London last week on her 36th birthday.
A source told Us Weekly that the Quantico star had a feeling he might propose but wasn’t sure that it would be this early in their relationship. However, “she was thrilled” when he asked her to marry him. The insider added that the pair is planning on walking down the aisle soon as they are both ready to start a family.
Another source said that the two are very happy together and that Jonas’ “friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him.”
Chopra was supposed to star in the upcoming Indian movie Bharat but on Thursday the film’s director, Ali Abbas Zafar, sent out a cryptic tweet that hinted at something major happening with Jonas and that she would no longer be involved in the project.
“Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of
@Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her … Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life,” Abbas wrote.

Jonas and his lady first sparked dating rumors in May 2017 when they showed up at the Met Gala side by side. Following their appearance together on the red carpet, the two pulled the old “friends” card when asked about attending the affair with one another.
Jonas explained that since they were both wearing designs by Ralph Lauren and would be taking photos with each other anyway they just decided to go together.
Chopra echoed that when she visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! shortly after the event, telling the late night host, “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.’”
The romance rumors reignited a year later and in June 2018, she attended his cousin, Rachel Tamburelli’s wedding. A few weeks later, the duo made the trip to India so Jonas could meet Chopra’s mother, Madhu.
“We just went out for dinner where Nick was present. But it was a large group. There were 10-odd people, so I didn’t get the time to know him that well. I’ve met him for the first time, so it’s too early to form an opinion,” Madhu said at the time.
Before he found the one, the “Jealous” artist was linked to a few other high-profile beauties including Kate Hudson and Selena Gomez. He was also in a two-year relationship with former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo.
This will be the first marriage for both stars.
Congrats to the happy couple!
