If you’re a sucker for love stories, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have a great one. Maybe, one of the best. After an almost two-year flirtation, a couple months of exclusive dating, and a whole lot of texting back and forth, the pair got engaged. Nick proposed to Priyanka in Crete during a vacation for her birthday. However, all love stories (even the most romantic) have a few bumps in the road. For Nick, he said during an interview with Vogue, that was him getting down on one knee and met with total. dead. silence. Awwwwwkward.
“I got down on one knee, again, and I said: Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?” Nick explained during him and Priyanka’s joint interview. “No joke—she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence.” Priyanka said she was so in shock that she was speechless. Nick (ever persistent) carried on, “I’m going to put this ring on your finger now unless you have any objections.” She obviously didn’t object because that five-carat diamond ring is still perched on her finger.
The two officially tie the knot on Dec. 1 but have been celebrating for the past couple of months. Back in August, they attended the roka, a pre-wedding ceremony. “It was such an incredible coming-together of two really ancient cultures and religions,” Priyanka told the publication. Pastor Jonas, Nick’s dad, performed a prayer, and a Hindi priest led the blessing. Nick added, “Two very different cultures and religious backgrounds, and the beauty of it was, there was so much love and acceptance for our side.”
Nick also participated in the ceremony. “Nick did the Hindu prayers,” Chopra explained. “The prayers are in Sanskrit. Even I can’t say them. But he did it in Sanskrit. The Indians were so impressed.” The two will be wed at a palace in India. Nick’s dad will officiate a Christian service, and there will also be a traditional Indian wedding.
These two are just way too perfect. Happy (almost) wedding day!
