Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas never confirmed their romantic relationship, but here we are, two months after they were first spotted together, reportedly engaged. On Friday, international media reported that Jonas had popped the question to her a week ago in London, where they were celebrating her 36th birthday.
Initial rumours of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ engagement came from the unlikeliest of sources - director Ali Abbas Zafar, who tweeted on Friday that Priyanka had dropped out of his upcoming film with Salman Khan, Bharat. Zafar also alluded to the reason for Priyanka’s backing out might be Nick.

Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life 😊😉😍— ali abbas zafar (@aliabbaszafar) July 27, 2018
“They are so happy,” a source told People.com. “His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her.”
While we wait for either of them to make an announcement, let’s take a look at Priyanka and Nick’s relationship, and all the most memorable moments from the last couple of months.
Met Gala 2017
Priyanka and Nick first met when they walked for Ralph Lauren at the 2017 Met Gala, an event often described as the Oscars for fashion. While rumours of their relationship didn’t take off until a year later, they stayed in touch the whole time.
Priyanka and Nick were spotted at the Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert show in Hollywood. Priyanka was also photographed chilling with Nick and his friends on a boat over the following weekend -- Memorial Day holiday period in the US. This happened at the end of May.
Priyanka explained in an interview to Jimmy Kimmel that because both she and Nick were wearing Ralph Lauren creations, they decided to go to the event together. “Yeah, we were on the same table and we already know each other. So he was like ‘Hey, you wanna go together?’ And I was like yeah, OK, let’s go together. It ended up working out,” she said.
Kimmel, however, did not seem content with her reply. “You know when one day you become the director of FBI, you will be subjected to a polygraph test. And I am gonna make sure they are all Nick Jonas related questions,” he said.

In early June, Priyanka was spotted with Nick’s extended family at his cousin, Rachel Tamburelli’s wedding in Atlantic City, US. They were spotted holding hands and enjoying the ceremony together in the most stylist outfits.
It was during their week-long India trip that the two made their relationship ‘Instagram official’. Priyanka and Nick arrived in India at the end of June for a short holiday and attended the engagement of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta as well. They included a vacation within a vacation when they took off for Goa with Priyanka’s cousin and actor Parineeti Chopra and brother Siddharth. During his time in India, Nick also met Priyanka’s mother, Madhu Chopra. She said that it was too early for her to form a definitive opinion about him because they’d met for a short time and in the company of several others.
Immediately after their India vacation, Priyanka accompanied Nick to Brazil, where he performed a set at the VillaMix Festival. Priyanka posted a short video of Jonas on set, and captioned it ‘Him’, and added a heart-eye emoji. Nick had also teased his fans with news of the performance on his Instagram, saying that he was “Pumped to get back on stage!”
The two rang in Priyanka’s 36th birthday at The Chiltern Firehouse in London. A couple of days earlier, Priyanka and Nick were spotted on a double date at 34 Restaurant in Mayfair with Nick’s brother Joe and his fiance, the actor Sophie Turner.
It was in London that Nick reportedly popped the question to Priyanka. According to a source, quoted by People, Nick closed down a Tiffany store in NYC to buy her an engagement ring.
