Nick and Joe Jonas Both Used This Move to Get a First Date With Their Wives
Nick and Joe Jonas make up two-thirds of the group The Jonas Brothers. Back in the day, it didn’t seem like there was a teenage girl alive that wouldn’t love to date any one of these brothers. During the course of their career, The Jonas Brothers toured the world and sang to sold-out arenas, starred in a couple of Disney Channel movies, and won several awards, including two Teen Choice Awards. In 2013, when they were at the height of their career, the boys decided to split up the group and focus more on their solo careers.
The three famous brothers decided to get back together earlier this year. However, fans noticed that they are no longer the same fun-loving boys that they once knew. Now, they are full-grown, extremely-talented men that are married and have families of their own. While Kevin Jonas has been married to his wife for almost a decade, many fans were surprised to learn that Nick and Joe had also found their one true loves.
So, how did Nick and Joe get a first date with their wives? Well, it turns out that they actually used the same plan to get their wives’ attention.
How did Nick Jonas meet his wife?
Nick Jonas didn’t actually meet his wife, Priyanka Chopra until after they had been talking on the phone for a few months. According to Elle, Nick had been following Chopra on Twitter. After admiring her from afar for a few months, he decided to slide into her DMs with a message that said: “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet.” She instantly replied, letting him know that her direct messages were not private and that he should text her instead.
They corresponded back and forth on the phone for a couple months until they were finally able to meet in person at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars Party. Nick told Extra about the first time he had ever seen Chopra in person.
“I put my drink down, got down 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.”
After dating for a little while, Nick asked Chopra to marry him. It reportedly took her “45 seconds” to finally say yes.
How did Joe Jonas meet his wife?
The way Joe first started talking to his wife, Sophie Turner, almost mirrors the way that Nick and Chopra started to talk. Instead of introducing himself to her on Twitter, Joe first messaged Turner on Instagram. While we don’t know exactly what the message said, Turner did say that she and Joe had mutual friends that had wanted them to be introduced to each other for a long time. So, we can only imagine that Joe’s message to Turner was very similar to Nick’s message to Chopra.
Joe and Turner continued talking for a few months before confirming that they were in a relationship in late 2016. In October 2017, the couple announced that they were engaged.
Are the two couples still together?
Just four months after Nick and Chopra got engaged, they tied the knot during a three-day wedding ceremony. The wedding took place on December 1, 2018, in Chopra’s home country of India.
Chopra said that she loves the married life and she didn’t realize that it would feel so much different from dating. “When you say your vows, it’s like this person is my family, and it’s the family I chose. There’s a weird responsibility to them. And safety that comes from that.”
Joe and Turner’s engagement lasted a little longer than Nick and Chopra’s engagement did. Although, they were engaged for a longer period of time, they made up for it by having two weddings. They first got married in a small ceremony in Las Vegas on May 1, 2019. They then had a more extravagant wedding in France where they were able to share their happy day with all of their friends and family members.
Today, both Nick and Joe seem to be very comfortable in their new roles as husbands. Recently, it was announced that Nick and Chopra’s family may be soon growing as she reportedly would love to have kids very soon.
