Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have been married since 2018 after somewhat of a whirlwind romance and now, the 38-year-old has opened up about how that romance came about.

Speaking in an interview with People, Chopra reminisced about how the couple were first introduced on Twitter in 2016 and then met in person the following year.

“I was shocked by his audaciousness, actually,” she said of the 28-year-old singer.

Meeting for the first time in real life at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, she said, “He held my hand, he turned me around. I was like, ‘What is happening?’ He was bold, confident, self-assured,”

“And that was the most attractive thing about Nick and still is for me.”

She continued: “But I was so taken in. Our courtship was such a short time. I just rode the wave because I trusted him. I'm someone who likes to have a sense of control, but he's the only one I don't feel like I need to do that with. I feel protected, calm.”

Clearly smitten from the get-go, Jonas previously revealed that he didn’t waste anytime courting his future wife. At that Oscars party, he got down on one knee in front of a crowd of people and asked the newly acquainted Chopra, “Where have you been all of my life?”

The following year, Jonas would get down on one knee for real when he proposed to the actress. The couple married a few months later in December 2018 in Jodhpur, India.
