It's been three years since Priyanka Chopra changed her Instagram name to her married name - Jonas Chopra - following her marriage to her musician husband Nick Jonas.

So, when she decided to remove her partner's name from her profile on the social media platform in November last year, speculation about the state of the 39-year-old and her 29-year-old husband's marriage started to surface.

Now, The Matrix actor is putting rumours of a split to bed.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Chopra said of her decision to revert her Instagram name back to her maiden name: 'It’s just a professional hazard… Because of the noise of social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot larger than it is. I think that we give it a lot more credence in real life, and I don’t think it needs that.'

The actor also spoke about when she had commented on a video clip of her husband working out in the same month that she changed her marital name on Instagram.

In the comments section of the footage showing Jonas pushing weights, she wrote: 'Damn! I just died in your arms… ', which she accompanied with a series of romantic emojis.

Chopra continued, noting: 'It’s a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a picture, everything that’s behind me in that picture is going to be zoomed in on, and people are going to speculate.'

Even so, Chopra's husband of three years says he's never seen his wife let the pressures of fame take a toll on her. 'We both know that public life is something that comes with what we do,' he told VF.

'But we’ve set real boundaries around our personal lives, our privacy, and worked really hard to create that little safe haven for ourselves with our friends and family.'

Chopra, who's previously expressed her desire of becoming a mother, also spoke about wanting to have kids.

'They’re a big part of our desire for the future,' she said. 'By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.'

And when it comes to her and Jonas' busy schedules potentially getting in the way of them trying for a baby, she insisted: 'No, we’re not too busy to practice.'

In an interview with E! News in 2019, Chopra spoke similarly of wanting to becoming a parent, while saying she had 'baby fever'.

'I just have a few of my friends who are having babies right now and I'm like, "God I need to catch up!"'

As well as the prospects of future motherhood, Chopra is at the peak of her career, as not just an actor but also a producer. But she also admits having fears. 'I’m very excited about the future. I’m terrified of it too,' she told Vanity Fair.

'I want to do movies that are not always bright and shiny. I want to work under the tutelage of really brilliant minds. And I want to be pushed.'

Jonas is clearly supportive of his wife, telling VF: 'She can come across as so regal and refined, which she certainly is, but she’s also got this carefree joy about her and she just exudes it.'
