Finally, putting all rumours to rest, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas made their relationship official on Saturday morning. In the low-key ‘roka’ ceremony, Priyanka looked like the diva (that she undoubtedly is) in a yellow suit and Nick, who wore a traditional Indian attire, surprised everyone with his Indian choice of clothes. But one thing that no one could miss is how love-struck both were!
In a photograph, which is doing the round on social media, we can see Nick whispering sweet nothings in Priyanka’s ears. And the lady in yellow, curled her famous lips in a shy smile and her eyes were cast down demurely while she grasped Nick’s kurta with her right hand. The message was clear: come what may, we are together. The shy bride-to-be and her handsome beau, are very much in love.
Why age is just a number
Much have been said and written about the pair who met at 2017 Met Gala. The 11-year-age difference has been the biggest criticism while the stars never confirmed their relationship. Once the world got a whiff of the brewing romance, there was no escape for both. When the gossips were growing out of control, Priyanka simply chose to pay a deaf ear. But the former Miss World who is also known for her witty replies and demeanour won everyone’s heart when she said, “My entire life, especially my personal life, everything about me is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption, but 10 per cent of it is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself.” It’s her life and it’s her choice where age is just a number. She had our respect!

Why secrecy was a big part of their relationship. Or not?
To say that Priyanka and Nick kept their relationship secret would be wrong. They simply refused to engage people with their private life. While distancing themselves from the prying eyes of the people, the couple did leave a trail of breadcrumbs for fans to follow. We could see Priyanka cheering Nick during his concert in Singapore. Or a picture of her brother Siddharth and Nick gazing at the sea in Goa, was shared on Priyanka’s Instagram account with the caption ‘my favourite men’.
She was also Nick’s date to his cousin’s wedding a few months back. And like an obedient beau, he met her mother during his last visit to India. And not to forget the now-famous quote by director Ali Abbas Zafar who announced that Priyanka was opting out of Bharat in the ‘Nick of time’ and the reason was ‘very special’. It was a hint big enough not to miss. And we waited patiently for the couple to speak.
A love story just like any other
They are in love and like any other couple, they too valued their privacy. They too wanted the blessings of their elders before they made it public. At the same time they were like any other young couple, adventurous and romantic. And the ‘proposal’ was what dreams are made of: Nick closed down an entire Tiffany store to buy her a ring.For a few months, they seemed almost inseparable. Travelling together, dining with family and enjoying movies. While everyone was curious to know what was brewing, the two love birds were slowly building their nest.
What brought them together
A few say it’s music that brought them closer and others give the credit to their friends who played cupid. But whatever the reason maybe, love happened and there is no stopping. Priyanka is that beautiful note of music, which had wooed the world much before it found the musician. And we wish she will keep surprising us in the ‘Nick of time’ always. Cheers to the happy couple!
