Fans are abuzz with the news of Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas’ engagement ceremony today.
Although the official event with friends and family is to be held later tonight, pictures of the happenings have already been pouring in. While some are skeptical of this rather ‘odd’ jodi, others are simply happy for the two artists. On this joyous occasion, let’s take a look back at how their relationship has blossomed, as compiled from Hindustan Times.
1. First public appearance ‘together’
May 1, 2017: Although the two were not dating then, Priyanka and Nick arrived together at 2017’s Met Gala, both wearing Ralph Lauren. That’s actually the reason why they went to the event with one another. “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren, and we decided to go together because it was fun,” the Baywatch actor had shared on The Jimmy Kimmel show.
2. Memorial Day Weekend
May 26-27, 2018: The next time the two were seen spending time together was Memorial Day Weekend the following year. They were spotted at a baseball game and also photographed chilling with Nick and his friends on a yacht. This weekend sparked the initial dating rumours.
3. Nick’s family wedding
Early June, 2018: Other than at the airport, Priyanka was snapped with Nick during their attendance at the latter’s cousin Rachel Tamburelli’s wedding in Atlantic City. Dressed in a silk, olive green dress, Priyanka was captured arm in arm with the Jealous singer.
4. Indian getaway
Late June, 2018: It was during their week-long trip to India that the pair made their relationship ‘Instagram official’. Priyanka and Nick also attended the engagement of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta while in India. They then took off to Goa with the Quantico star’s actor cousin Parineeti Chopra and brother Siddharth. Nick met Priyanka’s mother Madhu during the trip too.
5. Priyanka’s London birthday proposal
July 18, 2018: The duo celebrated Priyanka’s 36th birthday at The Chiltern Firehouse in London. A couple of days earlier, the two stars were spotted double dating with Nick’s brother Joe and his actor fiancée Sophie Turner at 34 Restaurant in Mayfair.
It was in London that Nick allegedly got down on one knee and popped the question to Priyanka. According to Hollywood Reporter, Priyanka’s engagement ring “is a timeless design and features a cushion-cut diamond set in platinum. A gemologist added, “A ring of this size and quality would cost around $300,000.”
6. Official engagement ceremony
