Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas only dated weeks before the Jonas Brother proposed — a moment the actress wasn't expecting at all.
In an interview with Elle UK, Chopra opened up about how they maintain their relationship, given their busy schedules, and what those early days of dating were like.
Jonas proposed in July 2018; the two started dating that May. They got married in December 2018.
"I didn’t expect the proposal at that point... It was two months!" Chopra explained with a laugh, reflecting on their rapid-fire timeline. "I thought it would happen, but it was still a complete shock. I relinquished control, and I just went with it. We were just sporadically meeting for about two years [before we started officially dating]. We were texting and stuff, and there may have been a part of me that wanted something serious. But I was taking a hiatus from guys at that point. I didn’t want anyone romantically.
"But there’s always been something about Nick, which is why we always ended up staying in touch, no matter where we were. One thing to know about my husband is that when he makes up his mind, he’ll get what he wants! When he knows, he knows. There’s such a sublime confidence to it that you can’t help but be like, 'Okay.'"
Now, the couple make a point to spend time together at least once a month, no matter where they are based for their projects.
"We see each other every three weeks. Wherever we are in the world, we fly to each other at least once a month for a couple of days," Chopra explained. "It was our rule when we first got married. Otherwise, we’d never see each other. Our teams also had to get married!"
She continued: "They have to talk to each other like, 'I am scheduling her here. No, we can’t do it... This is when we’re free... We have to move this.' It’s like a big marriage. It’s not just us but our families and teams, too."
