Priyanka Chopra calls Nick Jonas bold, confident and self-assured during their first meeting – Daily Mail

Priyanka Chopra recently opened up about spending quality time in quarantine with husband Nick Jonas, where they talked about their desire to raise a family together. 

With her husband back home in Los Angeles and the actress now in London shooting the Amazon series Citadel in London, Chopra reminisced about the couple’s courtship, which began with Jonas’s bold introduction on Twitter that was followed by another bold move when they met in person the following year.

‘I was shocked by his audaciousness, actually,’ the Indian star, 38, said of her first impression about the musician in an interview with People.

‘He held my hand, he turned me around. I was like, “What is happening?” He was bold, confident, self-assured,’ Chopra said of her first meeting with the Jonas Brothers star at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in 2017.

‘And that was the most attractive thing about Nick and still is for me.’

She continued: ‘But I was so taken in. Our courtship was such a short time. I just rode the wave because I trusted him. I’m someone who likes to have a sense of control, but he’s the only one I don’t feel like I need to do that with. I feel protected, calm.’

The couple actually had their first communication with each other the year before the Oscars party. And Jonas once again showed his ‘confidence’ and ‘audaciousness’ when he reached out to her via Twitter and suggested they go out on a date.

It would be many months later that they would have that first in-person meeting at the Oscars Party. At one point during the encounter, Jonas got down on one knee and said: ‘You’re real. Where have you been all my life?’ 

The actress gave him her phone number, and the two soon began a texting relationship that Jonas described in an interview with Vogue as ‘friendly with an eye toward flirtation.’

Things went into overdrive from there. Jonas proposed to Chopra on July 18, 2018, less than two months after they began dating. They then sealed their engagement with a traditional Roka ceremony in Mumbai the following month in front of members of both families.  

They were married December 1, 2018 at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India in traditional Hindu and Christian ceremonies.

In the proceeding months, the couple have spoken out about their desire to expand their family and have kids of their own.

‘I do want children, as many as I can have,’ Chopra recently told The Sunday Times, before clarifying that she does not want so many that she could start her own ‘cricket team,’ which has 11 players. 

Priyanka has loved spending so much quality time with her husband over recent months, as they’re normally so busy with their careers.

‘It’s great because we still like each other. That’s important,’ Priyanka told The Late Show With Stephen Colbert about their time together in quarantine.

‘We both have had such individual careers that I don’t think we would’ve had six months with each other ever, so that’s really a blessing. I was really happy to be able to have that time with each other.’
