American singer Nick Jonas has finally opened up about what his fans, and also of fiancee Priyanka Chopra, have been eagerly waiting for — their love story. Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show, the 25-year-old singer narrated how they fell for each other and decided to get engaged.
On Friday night, show host, Fallon asked Nick how they met. “We met through a friend, so we got connected first over text and we started talking for a while and it was about six months before we met in person. We attended the MET Gala a few years before and had a great time,” Nick replied.
“People use to ask us ‘Are you guys seeing each other’ and the answer was ‘No’. People thought we were being coy, until we cut to now we are engaged so, the story sought of wrote itself,” he continued.
“Then we met five months ago and I think we just knew it was right and jumped right in, we are very happy,” he added.

When Fallon asked if the couple had a celebrity nickname, Nick quipped that Priyanka likes “Prick”. The late-night host then advised the couple to refrain from using that name.
Nick opened up for the first time about his engagement to Priyanka, with whom he celebrated an Indian ritual last month in Mumbai among family members. He called it a “spiritual” experience.
After getting engaged, the couple participated in a traditional ‘roka’ ceremony, which Nick explained is a “confirmation from both sides of the family that they approve of the engagement”.
“We both left that ceremony so full of joy,” said the 25-year-old, also sharing that his parents were “blown away by the love shared among all the people”.
Nick said their ability to have privacy from the spotlight was most satisfying.
“For she and I, I think it was just nice to have that time with the family first. Have that private moment then be able to share with the world afterward.”
“We had this beautiful ceremony and we felt so connected, our families all met, it was spiritual and then we put it on Instagram, we were like ‘Oh my God! It’s official,” he added.
