The Real Reason Priyanka Chopra Says She Definitely Wants Kids

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had a whirlwind romance that led to one incredible wedding. The couple got married only six months after they started dating. But despite things moving quickly at first, the pair has slowed down when it comes to having kids. However, kids are in the cards. Chopra revealed that she definitely wants kids for one simple reason.

Chopra and Jonas started dating in May 2018 and wed in December 2018

If people thought Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved fast, they clearly haven’t heard about Meghan’s best friend. Chopra first got to know Jonas when he slid into her DMs back in 2016. The two ended up attending the Met Gala together that year, but no romance rumors sparked right away. It wasn’t until a full year later, when the two were spotted at a baseball game together, that dating rumors swirled. And from that point on, the two were inseparable. They spent only a few months dating before Jonas proposed. The two wed in an incredible weeklong ceremony in Chopra’s native India in December 2018.  

The couple is taking their time with having kids

Although things sped along for the two in the beginning of their relationship, Chopra and Jonas have pumped the breaks a bit when it comes to starting a family. “We’re taking our time,” Jonas said in an interview with Extra. He also told E! News that he and Chopra have been thinking a lot about their future. Fans suspected that the couple would have kids right away, since there is a bit of an age gap between the two (Jonas is 26 and Chopra is 37). People thought that, similarly to Meghan Markle, Chopra would want to have children since she is in her late 30s. While female fertility does decline after 35, it does not mean a woman needs to have kids before a certain age, despite what society says.

Chopra says she wants kids because she wants her life ‘to have meant something’

Although the couple isn’t rushing into starting a family, they have both made it clear they want to have children. Chopra told InStyle in June that when the time is right, she and Jonas definitely plan to start a family. “My big endgame is creating a formidable career and legacy for myself, but at the same time I want to have moved something,” Chopra said. “I want my existence to have meant something. I want my kids to turn around and be like, ‘Yeah, that was my mom.’”

The couple probably won’t have kids until after Jonas’ tour

When it comes to planning a family, timing is everything. And Jonas and Chopra appear to be enjoying life as newlyweds. Plus, Jonas just recently reunited with his brothers to re-from The Jonas Brothers after a six-year hiatus. The band just released new music and announced a new tour, which means Jonas’ mind will be elsewhere for at least the next few months. The couple might be planning on starting a family after Jonas’ tour concludes, since this would allow Chopra to remain in one place during her pregnancy rather than be on the road with the band.
