Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have the world media on their heels. They are living up their courtship days and a rumoured engagement under intense media glare but they are still wary of accepting it in so many words. While Priyanka refused to discuss her engagement while speaking about a recent event in Delhi, Nick was more forthcoming at an event to launch his new perfume in the US.
According to Us Weekly, when a fan congratulated the 25-year-old singer on his engagement, he graciously responded,“Thanks, man.” This is the closest the couple has come to acknowledging their relationship after Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted about Priyanka’s exit from his film in the ‘Nick of time’ and wished her for her future.
Nick also echoed Priyanka when he said he wants to have a family of his own soon. “[Having a family of my own] is the goal,” the Chains singer told US media, adding, “It’s definitely something that I hope will happen. I am not sure of the exact timeline. But, I need to give my nieces cousins at some point.”
Nick said he is already getting trained for the job. “The best part about being an uncle is that it’s like training wheels. You get to spend time with these young people and have some responsibility, which is nice.” His friend John Varvatos with whom he has launched the perfume added, “He is great with kids. He’s like a magnet to them. They latch right on. It’s amazing. He’s great.”
Priyanka had earlier said, “I am a very live in the today, maximum live in the next two months kind of person. But [in] 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”
Priyanka, who is shooting for her film The Sky is Pink, was not a part of the perfume launch. She had earlier shared a message for Nick on her Instagram Story. “Congratulations @nickjonas and @johnvarvatos! Go get it!” she captioned a pic of the cologne bottle on Thursday, August 9, adding a “lit” sticker. “’Fragrance makes us dream.’”

Earlier this week, Priyanka avoided questions about her romance . “My entire life — my personal life — is not for public consumption,” she said on Monday, August 6. “Ninety percent of my life is for public consumption, but 10 percent is for me. I’m a girl; I have the right to keep that to myself.”
She added: “My family, my friendships and my relationships are things I don’t think I need to defend or explain to anyone. I am not running for office, so I don’t think I need to give explanations … Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get annoyed. Mostly, I tell my publicists, ‘Let it be. Today’s news is tomorrow’s trash.’”
