Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Texted For Six Months Before They Started Dating
That is serious dedication.
During Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 25-year-old has opened up about how the pair first hit it off, and it sounds like they're both pretty good at keeping an online conversation going.
The couple were actually introduced to each other via a friend and spent around half a year texting before eventually deciding to meet up. In May 2017, they hit the Met Gala red-carpet together as a pair, despite insisting they were “just friends.”
It wasn’t long before the duo were snapped spending a lot of extra time together, fuelling rumours that their ‘friendship’ had blossomed into something else entirely.
“People thought we were being coy, and so did we until we cut to now [and] we're engaged," he said. "So, the story sort of wrote itself."
They only decided to give their romance a proper shot about five months ago: “It was kind of immediate, and I think we just knew it was right and jumped right in," he said. "And we're very happy."
Describing their engagement celebrations in India, Nick said the occasion was “full of joy” and “really special.” He added: “For she and I, I think it was just nice to be able to have that time with the family first and then be able to share with the world afterwards."
And joking about their ship name, he said: “She likes Prick. I don't like that one very much."
