Priyanka Chopra Reveals How Husband Nick Jonas Asked Her Out For The First Time
In her very first U.S. televised interview since getting married, Priyanka Chopra not only revealed a few details surrounding her wedding but also shared how Nick Jonas initially asked her out.
Chopra is getting back to work
Almost two months after marrying Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra is getting back to work.
After traveling the world and spending time with family, the actress is now focused on promoting her new movie, Isn’t It Romantic.
On January 29, Chopra revealed on Instagram that she would be appearing on The Ellen Show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
The actress shared a picture of her talk share outfit along with the caption, “Ready for ya @theellenshow – tune in tomorrow! #isntitromantic.”
Their love story began on Twitter
As in regular Ellen DeGeneres fashion, the talk show host had a few pressing questions for the actress. One of those questions being how her romance with singer and actor Nick Jonas started.
It came as a shock to many fans that Nick Jonas casually sent Priyanka Chopra a direct message on Twitter asking if she’d be willing to meet him in person.
“He DMed me actually. So millennial of us! He DMed me on Twitter saying ‘I’ve heard we should connect and uh… I’ve heard from common friends that we should meet. What do you think about that? I was like, ‘just text me,’” Chopra revealed to Ellen DeGeneres.
Priyanka Chopra revealed that once she started dating Nick Jonas, they had a show-and-tell in order for them to learn as much as they could about each another.
The actress told DeGeneres that she did not know a thing about Nick Jonas before they started dating and Jonas knew nothing about her.
“We showed each other our work from when we were younger — the embarrassing stuff, like, the horrible stuff,” Chopra revealed. “It was great. That’s how we got to know each other’s careers.”
The wedding was not big enough
Not only did DeGeneres want to know how the two started dating, but she also wanted a little insight into their lavish nuptials that took place in December.
According to Ellen DeGeneres, Chopra and Jonas’ wedding could easily be compared to the royal wedding but the actress didn’t think her wedding ranked that high.
“It was just three days!” Mrs. Jonas said, defending herself. “One Indian ceremony and one western Christian ceremony, and one day of pre-rituals — which we have in the Hindu wedding. But it was not, like … usually Indian weddings are a thousand people, at least. We only had 200, which was mostly family because both of us have giant families.”
Though Chopra and Jonas had quite a few people attend their wedding, the actress’ revealed that her mother was upset not all of the people she knew were in attendance.
Priyanka Chopra revealed that her mother was not a fan of keeping the wedding intimate which caused tension between the two on her special day.
“For an Indian family and an Indian wedding, [it was small] for sure,” Chopra said.“My mother was so upset with me the whole time. She was like, ‘I need to have another wedding for the other 150,000 people that I know! How can I not invite my jeweler? How can I not invite my hairdresser?’ So it was a whole conversation.”
The actress continued, “When you have 100 people in your family … my dad’s side, my mom’s side, they have brothers, sisters, cousins, kids, it’s like a whole thing.”
Where was Ellen’s invite?
Even though Ellen DeGeneres was interested in learning about Priyanka Chopra’s wedding, the talk show host was a little offended she did not get invited to the lavish event.
DeGeneres has known Nick Jonas for years and even let him rent out her condo. So, of course, she was a little hurt that she was not sent an invite.
Priyanka Chopra set the record straight that they did, in fact, invite DeGeneres, she just didn’t respond to the rsvp.
“We were so offended that you didn’t even respond to our invite,” Chopra said, sarcastically. “It’s so true! I was like, ‘We’re not good enough for Ellen? She wouldn’t come to India? She doesn’t even respond anymore? Nick, you’ve had such a good relationship with her …’ I was very offended for him, honestly. But I’m just the wife. I don’t know anything …”
Ellen DeGeneres is not letting the missing invite get to her and is genuinely very happy Chopra and Jonas tied the knot.
Priyanka Chopra revealed many things on The Ellen Show but one thing we all knew from the start was how much she loves and adores Nick Jonas.
