A Complete Timeline Of Nick Jonas And Priyanka Chopra's Relationship

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have enjoyed a whirlwind romance straight out of a rom-com.

The "Jealous" singer is most famously known as a member of the Jonas Brothers and as a coach on NBC's "The Voice." Jonas' Indian actress wife, Chopra, crossed over from Bollywood to Hollywood with her starring role in NBC's "Quantico" before appearing in Hollywood films like "The Matrix Resurrections" and "Baywatch."

Before they were a power couple with a net worth of $70 million (per Celebrity Net Worth), Jonas courted Chopra in the most 21st-century way: by sliding into her DMs in 2016, according to a 2018 interview with Vogue.

The two would enjoy a long-distance friendship that would turn into love. Eventually, they'd wed in not just one but two weddings and jet set across the globe before settling down in Los Angeles to welcome their baby girl in early 2022 (per Chopra's Instagram). Here's a look at Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's relationship throughout the years.

Nick Jonas slid into his future wife's DMs in 2016 before ever meeting her

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's whirlwind romance began with a Twitter DM, as many love stories do these days. Jonas told Vogue in a joint interview with Chopra in 2018 that he initiated the chat in 2016 after a mutual friend, actor Graham Rogers, Chopra's co-star on ABC's "Quantico," told Jonas they should meet and that he'd connect them. Jonas would later go on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" in 2020 to say that Rogers took so long to introduce them that he took it upon himself to send a direct message to Chopra himself.

Speaking to Vogue, Jonas said his direct message started like this: "I'm hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet." Chopra replied and said to text her directly since her entire team has access to her Twitter messages. That began a texting relationship that was "friendly with an eye toward flirtation," Jonas told the mag. They wouldn't meet in person until 2017.

Nick Jonas got down on one knee when he first met Priyanka Chopra in Hollywood

Nick Jonas may not have proposed to Priyanka Chopra when they first met in person, but he did get down on one knee. Speaking to Vogue in 2018, Jonas set the scene of his and Chopra's first encounter in the real world. They both were in attendance at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars Party. Jonas was the first to notice Chopra, who walked into the room wearing a long black Michael Kors dress. "And I put my drink down," Jonas told the outlet, "get 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." Granted, the two had texted for months prior when Jonas directly messaged the actress on Twitter.

After that public display of affection, Jonas suggested they get a drink. Chopra looked at her manager for approval since they had a flight to catch to India, and Jonas said it would only take five minutes. They got that drink and talked, but then Chopra left for India, and their hush-hush texting relationship continued.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra first sparked romance rumors at the Met Gala

The 2017 Met Gala brought Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra together again. This time, their public meeting would spark romance rumors. In a joint interview with Vogue in 2018, the couple shared that iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren invited them together to rock two of his designs at the gala. Lauren reportedly didn't know anything about their months-long texting relationship. Following the event, Chopra was a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" — where the host was less concerned with the gala and more about Chopra's relationship status. "Are you dating Nick Jonas? Isn't he, like, 11 years old?" Kimmel jokingly asked.

Chopra didn't say yes or no. "We were both wearing Ralph Lauren," she said, adding, "We decided to go together. It was fun."

While the duo remained secretive about their budding relationship, the couple told Vogue in 2018 that they met over drinks a week before the Met Gala in New York. Chopra even invited Jonas back to her apartment. "We hung out for a couple of hours," Chopra told the outlet, adding, "He patted my back before he left." Jonas said he didn't kiss her because, at the time, her mom was staying with her.

The two didn't see each other for a year after meeting

After appearing together at the 2017 Met Gala, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra wouldn't see each other for a year between their busy work schedules, not until the next Met Gala in 2018 when they ran into each other and walked the carpet separately, according to Vogue. In the joint interview, the couple told the outlet that, while in the past timing wasn't right, this time, they decided to see what their relationship could be.

According to Just Jared, the duo spent Memorial Day weekend together in 2018, fueling the fire to those dating rumors. The outlet revealed that the two went on a date to the Hollywood Bowl to watch "Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert." That same weekend, they were spotted at a Los Angeles Dodgers game and then on a yacht with some of Jonas' famous friends like Chord Overstreet and Wilmer Valderrama, per this Twitter post published by a Jonas fan page account. 

In 2018, a media outlet declared the couple officially dating

After sparking romance rumors at the 2017 Met Gala (per Vogue) and being pictured together on Memorial Day weekend of the same year, according to Just Jared, an Us Weekly report published in May 2018 confirmed that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were officially an item. "It's brand new," a source told the outlet exclusively, adding, "It's a good match and they are both interested in each other." 

While the couple didn't confirm or deny the report, it appeared all signs pointed to yes on social media. In the couple of months leading up to the Us Weekly article, the duo liked and commented on each other's Instagram photos pretty regularly. For instance, Chopra liked a photo of Jonas posing by a balcony in Las Vegas, and he favorited a photo of her standing outside as it snowed on her in New York City.

Nick Jonas got down on one knee (again), this time to propose

In late 2018, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra got engaged, two years after he first slid into her Twitter DMs (per Vogue). While Jonas had already gotten down on one knee before, when he first met the actress in person at a Vanity Fair Oscars Party in 2017, according to the outlet, this time he was proposing marriage.

A source told People in July 2018 that the Jonas Brothers member and NBC's "The Voice" coach proposed to Chopra after two months of officially dating. Per the source, Jonas shut down a Tiffany & Co. in London to purchase Chopra the perfect engagement ring. Chopra debuted the show-stopping engagement ring on Instagram. Ring expert Andrew Brown, president of WP Diamond, estimated the ring was worth $200,000, according to E! News.

In the interview with Vogue in 2018, Jonas said he proposed to Chopra in Crete on what Chopra thought was her birthday celebration. "I got down on one knee, again, and I said: 'Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?'" Jonas told the outlet, adding that the move left Chopra speechless.

The happy couple tied the knot in two different ceremonies

One wedding wasn't enough for this power couple. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in two ceremonies in December 2018, just several months after news of their engagement in July. 

Per People, the duo hosted two weddings in India in December: the first, a Western wedding at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, the second, a Hindu ceremony at the same venue the next day, per another People article. Leading up to the Hindu ceremony, the couple participated in various traditions, wore traditional garments, and more. During the Western wedding, Chopra walked down the aisle in a traditionally white Ralph Lauren wedding dress to a string quartet, while Jonas wore a traditional tuxedo. "I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up," Chopra told the outlet, adding, "We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us."

The wedding weekend in India featured over 200 guests, including Jonas' famous brothers, Joe and Kevin, alongside their significant others, actress Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas, respectively. Following their Hindu ceremony, the two participated in a bridal ritual called Bidaai, a blessing onto Chopra and her new husband.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra spent their early newlywed life mixing business with pleasure

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra know how to mix business with pleasure. Following their extravagant wedding celebrations in India (per People), instead of immediately jet setting on their honeymoon, they attended a few business and personal engagements together as husband and wife.

According to another People article, the two appeared at a Bumble red carpet event and party in New Delhi. Chopra is an investor of the online dating app, which was hosting an app launch party in India. Then, they flew to Udaipur, India, for a friend's wedding celebration. Per Time, they did enjoy a mini-honeymoon in Oman, which they followed up with a Jonas family vacation in Switzerland.

Even without a honeymoon right away, it's clear the newlyweds still had a chance to enjoy their newly married life throughout their busy post-wedding season. Chopra posted an intimate selfie of herself cuddling up next to her hubby on Instagram with this caption: "Marital bliss they say."

They embarked on their official honeymoon a month after their wedding celebrations

While the couple didn't immediately follow their two lavish Indian weddings in late 2018 with a honeymoon (per People), once they did, they celebrated married life in the Caribbean with some one-on-one time.

According to E! News, the couple flew to the Caribbean a month after their weddings. A source told the outlet that Jonas planned the honeymoon himself. "She had no idea it was going to be the Caribbean and Nick is planning everything for the trip, it's all a complete surprise to Priyanka," the source told the outlet. "She knew it was a honeymoon trip but didn't find out where they were going until they landed."

Chopra, who often displays personal moments on Instagram, shared a photo of the two posing in front of a dreamy pool. Chopra wore a floral maxi dress, while her hubby donned an orange suit jacket-and-pants combo. The new wife wrote in the caption: "And then... there was only him..." Jonas also documented the trip on his Instagram story, per E! News.

They bought a house in California to fit a growing family

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas already had a baby on the brain when they bought and renovated their Los Angeles home in 2019. A source told People that the duo purchased the mansion in the coveted Encino, California, suburban neighborhood with "children in mind," adding that they spent months on renovations. 

Per The Wall Street Journal, they purchased the mansion for $20 million — definitely evidence of their glamorous life together. According to Dirt, their 20,000-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms — more than enough room for their growing family. The modern mansion, which sits on three acres of land, features a gate and guardhouse, plus an underground garage for extra security. 

Not only does it have plenty of room for the Jonas family but also for their guests, who can enjoy the on-site movie theater, bowling alley, gym, indoor basketball court, and more, making for some epic sleepovers. The two-story home has large windows throughout, showcasing the far-off mountain range and an indoor-outdoor space with plenty of seating and an infinity pool that's out of this world.

The duo continued a long-distance relationship through marriage

As a Hollywood power couple, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have responsibilities that often take them away from each other.

When Chopra appeared on InStyle's "Ladies First With Laura Brown" podcast in 2021, per People, the actress spoke about how difficult it was for the couple to manage busy work schedules and spend time with one another. "This year has been really, really tough. It was really, really tough to be away from home for an entire year, especially at a time when you can't travel to see your family," said Chopra, hinting at the COVID-19 pandemic. She went on to say that, while she was in the U.K. working, her hubby, Jonas, was in America.

Even so, they managed to make a long-distance relationship work through quarantines and all. "He flew down a bunch of times, I flew down a couple of times," Chopra shared on the podcast.

While they didn't spend much of 2021 together, the duo visited each other as often as time allowed.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas both hinted at their desire to grow their family

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have spoken candidly about their desire to grow their family. Chopra expressed this desire to Vanity Fair in a feature published in January 2022. Chopra told the outlet, "By God's grace, when it happens, it happens." Even though the actress and her hubby, Jonas, are busy people, Chopra told the mag she's okay with slowing down their work schedules to make time for a baby.

Before Chopra sat down with Vanity Fair, Jonas spoke to Extra in early 2021 about their desire to have kids. "We'd be blessed with any child, son or daughter or anything... I'm sure her mother will want to weigh in and my family would want to weigh in, too... But just knocking wood that it happens," he told the outlet.

At the time of Jonas' profile in People's "Sexiest Man Alive" issue in 2020, the couple were parents to three dogs, a German shepherd named Gino, a chihuahua named Diana, and their husky and Australian shepherd mix, Panda.

The couple welcomed a daughter via surrogate in 2022

While Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had discussed with the media their desire to have kids, they surprised fans when they welcomed their first baby together via surrogate on January 15, 2022. Chopra shared the news on Instagram: "We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family." 

Several sources told TMZ that the baby, a girl, was born in a Southern California hospital. The couple has remained rather mum on social media, though Chopra did post a photo album on Instagram in February 2022, and one of the photos featured several stuffed animals.

The baby announcement came weeks after Chopra expressed to Vanity Fair her plans to one day start a family with Jonas, saying, "[Children are] a big part of our desire for the future."

We can't wait to see what this Hollywood power couple does next!
