Actor Priyanka Chopra has written posts about her late father Dr Ashok Chopra as well as her father-in-law Kevin Jonas Sr on the occasion of Father’s Day on Sunday. What’s more her husband Nick Jonas too shared pictures of his father and Priyanka’s dad with a touching note.

Priyanka has always been her ‘daddy’s little girl’ and on a day dedicated to fathers, she posted a tender note on Instagram. Sharing a picture from her childhood with her dad, she wrote: “Father’s Day on moms birthday.. it’s almost like dad is here celebrating with us. Don’t need a day to miss and appreciate you dad. I love you. #HappyFathersDay #daddyslilgirl for life.”


Incidentally, June 16 is also her mother Dr Madhu Chopra’s birthday. She posted another picture with her mother and wrote: “Best birthday girl ever. @madhumalati I love you. Thank you for being my rock.”

She wrote: “Happy Father’s Day @papakjonas I feel blessed to have you and @mamadjonas in my life! Thank you for taking me in as your daughter with so much love and warmth. Love you loads.” 

Nick too seem to reciprocate the sentiment. Not only did he post a childhood picture with his dad, Kevin, he also posted the same picture that Priyanka put and wrote how he regretted not getting to know her dad better, addressing him as ‘Ashok sir’. He also thanked him for bringing “an incredible woman” into this world. He wrote: “Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there. I hope to be half the father you are dad. I love you very much... and I so wish I could have had the chance to get to know you Ashok sir. Thank you for bringing such an incredible woman into this world.”
