Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra certainly have a love story for the ages! The pair’s whirlwind romance actually started back in 2016, after Nick slid into Priyanka’s DMs on Twitter like the millennial knight in shining armor he truly is. Celebrities: They’re just like us!

Priyanka responded to him shortly after (as in, the same day), suggesting they text instead. From there, Nick and Priyanka met at an Oscars after-party in 2017, then attended the Met Ball Gala together the same year. Priyanka told Jimmy Kimmel, “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together. It was fun.”

Sure, sure. The ole “we were both wearing the same designer” excuse. CLASSIC.

Anyway, fast-forward to Memorial Day 2018. The pair got the rumor mill going after they were spotted together at a Dodgers game and started flirting with each other on Instagram. Like true millennials, their relationship became official when Nick posted a video of Priyanka on Instagram captioned, “Her 😍.”

Fast-forward to July, a whole two months after making their relationship public, and the pair were engaged! They wed in multiple beautiful ceremonies — a traditional Indian ceremony and a Western ceremony — the weekend of November 30, 2018. Now, the Quantico actress is opening up about the sweet and touching reason why she’s taking on her husband’s last name — something you don’t see too often in Hollywood.
