Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas are apparently engaged after dating for two months

Celebrities leave the Carlyle Hotel to attend the Met Gala

At first I didn’t cover Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ relationship because I didn’t believe it was really happening. Then when it became clear that they were really happening, I didn’t cover them because I was like “meh, this will last three months, tops.” Did I mention that my Gossip Predicting Mojo has been on the fritz for a few years? Sometimes it’s dead-on and sometimes it’s just not. It was definitely on the fritz with these two. People Magazine reports that after two months of dating, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are ENGAGED. This feels like the fifth sudden engagement we’ve heard about in a month’s time. Something is definitely in the air/water.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are set to marry! A source tells PEOPLE the couple got engaged a week ago on her 36th birthday while the two were in London. Jonas closed down a Tiffany store in New York City to buy an engagement ring, according to the insider.

“They are so happy,” the source says. Reps for both stars did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. A Jonas source tells PEOPLE the singer is “very, very happy.”

“His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her,” the source says.

Late Thursday night, Chopra’s director for the Indian film Bharat, Ali Abbas Zafar, announced the actress would be leaving his project in a cryptic tweet alluding to her boyfriend, which launched rumors among the Indian press the two stars were engaged.

[From People]

Priyanka and Nick have apparently known each other since last year, but they’ve only been dating since May of this year. It’s been a whirlwind relationship – on June 9, Nick took Priyanka to New Jersey to meet his family (including his Judgy Mom) and Priyanka apparently charmed all of them. Then a few weeks later, Priyanka took Nick to India to meet her mom. He’s 25 years old, she’s 36. It’s not a huge, crazy age difference, but there is a significant life-experience difference in that 11-year gap. So… what do you think? Will they end up getting married? Will they have a Chopra-Jonas baby? As a fellow Indian girl who has always thought of Nick as “the hot JoBro,” I can’t hate on Pri’s game. Get some, lock it down, marry it. Good for her.

    I am surprised and feel like she is being foolish??? I feel like this will be detrimental to her career and that she won’t be taken seriously moving forward. However, with every morning feeling as though it is the dawn of the end of days who am I to judge if people want to commit to someone else in the midst of all of this uncertainty.

    • Got says:

      Why would it detrimental to her career or make her look foolish? If you actually hear nick Jonas talked he sounds pretty mature and actually thoughtful he is no Ashton Kutcher . 25 is not that young either why not?

      • Mia4s says:

        It’s a detriment to her career because it’s being reported she dropped out of a movie due to her engagement. If that’s true, she’s beyond stupid.

        Her show has been cancelled and she needs new projects. If she’s pregnant, fine. Still stupid to get pregnant that fast but mistakes happen and health comes first. But ditching work due to an engagement will be noticed by Hollywood producers…and not in a good way.

      • Bridget says:

        It sounds like she decided that an engagement to a Jonas Brother is better for her career than a Bollywood movie.

      • Jessie Mendoza says:

        No Ashton Kutcher? The world famous actor, philanthropist, and savvy investor? If you look into him past Punk’d, he is a seriously accomplished person.

      • J.Mo says:

        Got: I saw him years ago as cohost to Kelly Ripa and was impressed with how well-spoken and gentlemanly he was. I haven’t noticed him elsewhere except those ridiculous butt-crack photos. I’m old and unfamiliar with his work but will look him up again now that someone has seconded my initial impression 🙂

    • Got says:

      She has more several movies taking for time off for her personal life is only normal. No one is going frown upon it it’s not like she is difficult to work with or something

      • magnoliarose says:

        It depends on the personality of the people she was supposed to work for. If they were banking on her name and she dropped out then they may be vengeful and bad mouth her to others. Or block her down the road when she is up for a career breakthrough role. She doesn’t have a foolproof career at this point.

    • Jasmine18 says:

      This ‘engagement’ has ‘contracted relationship for publicity’ written all over it.

      Do their agents think people really believe this stuff??!

  2. Wellsie says:

    Fascinating… I guess this is the new thing to do. He looks like such a child next to her but okay, whatever.

    • Carrie1 says:

      Yeah. I’m not a fan of marriage when it’s this kind of set up… I wouldn’t marry him. That’s a contract. Date him, be steady, but marriage for these two is not smart. That said, I wish them well and luck.

      As an aside, in today’s world, I don’t think it’s smart to marry unless it’s a situation like Meghan and Harry. Royal family is an institution, they knew going in this was more than a love marriage, this was also going to be a career commitment partnership.

      I wouldn’t marry at all. And a ring is like “look what I’m getting paid for slave labour” … not smart.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I agree with everything you said, Wellsie. He looks about 16, but eh, I guess sudden engagements are now in vogue.

  3. Abby says:

    I’m younger than her and I feel like he’s a baby! I have never seen the appeal of the Jonas brothers.

    But… you do you Priyanka! I’ll be here for wedding pics!

    • Jane says:

      He does look like a child next to her. Something tells me he will have a baby face for some time.

    • magnoliarose says:

      He’s afflicted with the dreaded Ralph Macchio disease. When they finally age they look like extras from Children of the Corn. Preternatural yet creepy.

      • Potemkin says:

        @magnoliarose, your comment made me burst into laughter.

      • Enormous Coat says:

        @magnoliarose I’m getting to this late, but this was a comment. I read it to my husband while cackling. ***applause***

      • Nikki says:

        I’m super late reading this, but choked on my bedtime snack. Magnoliarose, that’s so funny!

  4. Léna says:

    What’s going on in Hollywood with all the engagements after a few weeks right now ??

    • B says:

      They all want attention imo.

    • Morning Coffee says:

      Attention and bearding.

    • Mgsota says:

      Because we are all depressed and scared and angry under our orange dictator…so getting married seems comforting…idk…but seems possible.

    • J.Mo says:

      We’re Pete and Ariana the first? That’s the one I noticed and think others saw all the rabid attention it got them and followed suit.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Attention. They can’t be original. Once they see it worked for X then they go for it too. I imagine we aren’t at the end of this.

    • Ange says:

      Yeah right?! Jeez just date for longer than five minutes first, it’s not that hard. If they’re right they’ll still be right a year or two down the line.

  5. Enough Already says:

    I’m here for wedding dress twirling clips.

  6. Crowhood says:

    I know looks aren’t the most important thing but to me she is breathtaking- one of the most beautiful women i have ever seen. And he looks like a sweaty little boy.

    • Wellsie says:

      Sweaty little boy!!!! OMG. That’s so perfect. I hope they are very happy… but the laughs just keep coming for me on this.

      • Jan90067 says:

        OMG that’s it! He’s like Beiber: a sweaty, little boy playing grown-up.

        I don’t know why, but I feel this isn’t going to last. She only came out with him after M & H’s wedding; she didn’t bring him to it. Wonder if this engagement is her feeling a bit competitive with her friend…?

    • Original T.C. says:


    • Mariposa says:

      ITA….I Just kept looking at the pictures of them together and they are like water and oil! She is one of the most poised, stylish women in Hollywood and he looks like he’s just moved out of a frat house. I’m not seeing it.

      • Fubar says:

        Odd Couple

      • lucy2 says:

        I think she is stunning, and agree he still looks like a boy. It’s kind of weird to me, I don’t see the attraction to him, but at least they’re both adults.

    • Adee says:

      Right?! She carries herself very womanly ( like her friend Duchess Meghan)
      He on the other hand has a very boyish quality and demeanor.

      I dunno, I just don’t see the “couple” there, but good for them if they’re happy.

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      I don’t find her all that attractive. Certainly not as attractive as she seems to find herself. I have read a couple of her interviews and she seems a bit smug.

      • Yup, Me says:

        She won the Miss World title and then established a successful career based off of that and her looks. She’s more than earned the right to be smug

      • Queenb says:

        right because people born with such a huge privilege should feel smug about that!
        lets hope all white people feel smug about establishing their careers on their privilege!

      • Starkiller says:

        I agree…I think Americans perceive her as “beautiful” because she’s a refreshing change from the typical Hollywood bleached, plastic and vapid, but by a Bollywood standards she is nothing special. Then again, Joe Jonas is certainly nothing special either.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yes, yes, yes to all of this!

  7. TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    I just turned 37, and I have quite a few ~25 account executives on my team. My first reaction is just….no. But it’s HW, age gaps can be blurred by experience and fame. So 🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe they’ll go the distance and become a classic HW love story. The JoBros seem to believe strongly in marriage.

    • Bridget says:

      A lot of the maturity gap at that phase is due to career and family planning. Who knows what Priyanka’s desire is when it comes to having children, but at least career-wise Nick has been a working professional for a LONG time. He’s likely on par with her maturity level, there. He’s not like a regular 25 year old who’s still fairly fresh out of college and in their first real job (or some random job that you can take when you’re 25 and have no responsibility).

  8. Jane says:

    I’m 35 woman and to date a 24 year old man would be a big deal.

    11 years is a big difference but maybe I am wrong.

    • Got says:

      A Hollywood 35 year old gets so much help to look as young and hot as possible so not fair for the rest of us

      • Jan90067 says:

        Eh, she’s had a lot of plastic surgery and lip filler (just google old pics of her). There’s a lot of upkeep going on (not judging, just fact). He looks like he rolls out of bed and pulls his clothes out of the pile at the foot of the bed.

        I don’t know… just don’t see any real “connection” in pics of them, but…hey…as long as *they* do, guess that’s all that matters, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Even more important than their looks, i feel as though women have a tendency to mature a lot quicker than men (not talking physically). So in reality, this feels to me more like 20 years than 10, which is a looot.

      So for instance, if theyre in the unhappy scenario of having to deal with fertility issues, has he developed the strength of character at 25 to really weather that storm? Hopefully, we’ll never find out.

      I’m a huge Priyanka fan girl, so i really hope she’s not taking this lightly and has thought this through thoroughly.

  9. TassieGirl says:

    OMG I thought that was Eva Mendes in the header.

    And I call showmance on these two.

  10. Original T.C. says:

    Nooooooooo! Don’t do it Priyanka. Musicians, actors, athletes are weak in resisting temptation. Get yourself a 28-36 year old IT billionaire. I can’t co-sign this future marriage, girlfriend you have too much beauty, brains and charm for a Jonas Bro.

    • Queenb says:

      lol because Tech Bros are so kind and feminist, right?

      • Original T.C. says:

        Well at least they don’t bang anything that moves when not with you. Plus the ones who get married champion their wives.

    • How about a nice plumber, auto mechanic or cable installer?

      • Dee Kay says:

        Hey don’t joke about blue collar men. My BFF is a highly educated and accomplished Black woman who just could not find a suitable mate in her peer group (advanced degree white-collar profession). Then one day she gave a second and third look to a man at her church who never went to college but has a steady blue collar job and *bam*, magic. And his job turned out to be a boon, too, b/c those unionized jobs have fantastic insurance — she is on his insurance plan even though she makes more in salary.

      • It wasn’t a joke at all! Interesting that because she is beautiful and has had some success as an actress that “tech billionaire ” is somehow #goals.

        The implication being that she is just now too good for those types of wage earners. Trust me, it was all Blue collar respect and sarcasm.

      • Dee Kay says:

        Oh I see! Yes I agree, it’s weird that we expect stars to marry no less than billionaires, but many would be far happier with a “normal” person. I should say: we expect female stars to marry extremely wealthy men, while male stars (Damon, McConaughey) can marry non-wealthy women without any criticism.

  11. Beth says:

    WTF are they all rushing for? It might be a good idea to actually get to know each other before running down the aisle.

  12. MsCatra says:

    Do you think all these whirlwind engagements and weddings are almost like a pre-war effect? As in, with all the uncertainty, people are diving in? Just a random thought.

    I’m 38 and while I’d never picture a 27 year old being interested, I can see me going for it.

    • margie says:

      I have never thought about it this way, but I like this theory. Things are garbage! Let’s make our own happiness, we might be nuked or sold to Russia tomorrow!

    • Case says:

      I think you’re right. These days I think people are more likely to say “screw it, we could die tomorrow, let’s do whatever we want.”

    • Christina says:

      Co-signing your theory.

    • minx says:

      I can definitely buy this.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      I think you might be on to something here.

    • Dee Kay says:

      This idea of a “pre-war” mindset is the best explanation I’ve read so far of these fast and/or surprise engagements and weddings (Priyanka Chopra, Michelle Williams, Ariana Grande).

  13. Jaded1 says:

    I’ve never liked Nick J. He always seems to take himself too seriously and his “smolder” pose in every shot is annoying. I get the impression that he wants to be The Man. Hoping PC walks away from this in time. She can do better.

  14. Got says:

    I kind of love it especially if they work out. Indian men tend to be especially sexist and discriminate about age so I love the message it shows. Nick Jonas actually seems decent from the interviews I’ve watched. I think girls feel the have date older or at least the same age because guys are like a flight risk or something

  15. minx says:

    Her expression in the last picture is hilarious.

  16. She looks amazing in the track suit, but pumps would take the leisure out of athleisure for me.

  17. Ela says:

    If you follow Bollywood gossip, you got to wonder about the rumors of her and Shah Rukh Khan (very married superstar). If they were true,this may be a case of her marrying on the rebound. I wanted better things for you Priyanka!!

    • OG Cleo says:

      There were also rumors about her and (married) Akshay Kumar before SRK, which is just…🙄

  18. OG Cleo says:

    “Bharat” was going to be her big return to Bollywood after being based in the States for a few years, so her dropping out is really a terrible move. And her Western career is at a standstill. I’m not even a fan of her acting, but I’m weirdly disappointed in her.

    • me says:

      She just wrapped filming a movie in NYC. Her career is fine.

      • OG Cleo says:

        Sure, for someone who just started out with her career wrapping a fourth-billed role in a Liam Hemsworth film would be good. It’s not where she, a huge Indian star going into her third or so year working in the US, wants to be though. For all her bad acting, she’s an extremely ambitious person, and walking out of a Salman Khan film in India at the last minute and working in small indie films in America isn’t where she needs to be at her age.

  19. otaku fairy... says:

    If Nick Jonas were female instead of male, he’d be raked over the coals/concern-trolled for this- both for the decision to date or marry a 30-something while still a 20-something and for the banging older partners since the age of 18. I have no problem with them dating though.

    • manta says:

      I read on the Karlie Kloss post, that she’s 25 and been dating her now fiancé for 6 years, meaning that she started banging him when she was 19 and him 27( or even younger, since I always suspect this type of relationship goes public when legal age is not too close) . Scrolling through the comments, nobody seemed to bat a lash about it.
      Other concerns were raised but not this one.

      • Got says:

        This. Even on here a female dominated site we aren’t overly critical of age differences unless it like Leo DiCaprio. No one batted an eye between the age difference Tom hiddleston and Taylor Swift they did for the thirst but because of the age difference

      • Miss Margo says:

        I was 18 when I started dating my now husband when he was 25. I’m now 31. Why cant the genders be reversed? Good for them! I support this!

      • Brickyardute says:

        I’ve got no issue with the age difference. I side eye agreeing to marry someone after a few months of dating. Still putting your best foot forward all the time at two months. Know them in all seasons at least!

        Unless there is a driving reason, why dive into marriage unless for the attention? For all the people on here that married their SO and are still in happy marriages, many blessings to you! I still think hoping to be the exception to the rule is risky and thirsty when you are in the public eye.

  20. Tiffany says:

    Lust is a helluva drug.

  21. Case says:

    Ha! I kinda thought this was some weird showmance situation, so color me surprised. These two don’t match up at all — she’s such a sexy, mature-looking woman and he looks like a kid still. And because women (generally) mature faster than men, I do find it odd when women date or marry significantly younger men. But hey, if they’re happy, they’re happy. Good for them. Just such a curious pairing.

  22. Steph says:

    Well, these engagements seem like a PR move, I don’t believe it honestly.

  23. Mimi says:

    It is so hard to find the right person, so I am not going to hate. I am her age and divorced and it is just so very challenging for me as an average person out here on the market that I can imagine it is actually more difficult when you are high profile and very successful trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. On the off chance that there is something real between them, I will wish both all the best.

  24. Mrs. Peel says:

    Beauty and the beast personified.

  25. Bridget says:

    That’s nice, they decided to go with the long term contract option.

  26. harla says:

    I knew nothing about Nick Jonas before watching him on an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylis and found him to be a likeable young man and wow he has a nice set of abs!! Congrats to them both and I hope they have a long and happy marriage.

  27. me says:

    I knew he really loved her when he was willing to fly to Mumbai in the middle of July. That’s love! I hope they have a big fat Punjabi wedding !

  28. Miss Margo says:

    This rush engagement makes sense. Priyanka is GORGEOUS inside and out. I’m a straight woman and even I would put a ring on her finger. So happy for them!

    • KLO says:

      I wish them all the best.

    • minx says:

      Same, she is insanely beautiful. But I’ve read she is really difficult, don’t know if that’s true….?

      • indian says:

        Dont’ they label all women that aren’t doormats as “difficult”. She won’t sleep with director, ohh, she’s difficult:-) sadly, that sentiment traverses cultures.

  29. Happy21 says:

    My fav to quote a comment on one of the celeb gossip magazines FB page:
    “Well, that escalated quickly!”
    Never saw the appeal of the Jonas Bros so totally don’t get the appeal here…

  30. HeyThere! says:

    When you know, you know. If my husband would have proposed after a month or two I would have said yes. I think he feels the force of his jo-bros being either married or engaged. It can make you feel behind sometimes. Not that that is what this is. They are both over 25, so I’m thinking it will last. Best wishes!

    Also, I bet the sex is fire. That is all. LOL

    • lovesot says:

      LOL. the sex is non-existent. this is a bearding, honey.

      • HeyThere! says:

        This made me laugh!! He has never given me vibes of needing a beard….but then again, I don’t know him. I was to old for the jo-bro shows. Not their demographic as I’m in my early 30’s. LOL

  31. lovesot says:

    she loves the publicity and he needs an indefinite beard.


  32. Fluffy Princess says:

    What is it with these Jonas Bros? Two bros engaged to two of the hottest women in showbiz at the moment? Have they got some secret mojo we don’t know about or don’t see?? I’m puzzled and intrigued at the same time!

    • Amelie says:

      The funniest thing I’ve seen about this engagement is an article on People wondering if Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will attend their wedding (if it happens) since Meghan is friends with Priyanka. Can you imagine a member of the Royal family having to attend a wedding of a Jonas Brother??? I want this wedding to happen for the sole reason Meghan and Harry might attend!

      • FluffyPrincess says:

        That is amazing–royalty at a Jonas Bro wedding! Would they attend though? Their presence would over shadow the bride and groom entirely–???

  33. indian says:

    Long time lurker, first time commenter. I dont’ understand the snickering about them. She’s accomplished a lot already and lost her dad a couple years back. Maybe she thinks a family is more important than a career..? She’s surely made enough money.

    As for why is it unbelievable? It’s not strange in our culture to get married quickly if you like someone.. The hard work starts after the marriage right? You can be in love for 10 years but doesn’t mean the marriage will last or the love will last. If you know what you like, why wait?

  34. OriginalMe says:

    She seems immature for her age and he seems mature for his. Who knows? It could work. In terms of beauty… as someone above said, she’s different from you standard HW look, but for a real Indian beauty, check out Deepika Padukone. Wow!

    • OG Cleo says:

      She really is beautiful, and seems like a lovely person. Aditi Rao Hydari is also obnoxiously gorgeous.

    • There are so many drop dead gorgeous women in and from India. There’s no need to act like there’s only one when there are SO many Indian beauties.

      I’ve noticed in every Priyanka thread someone will come in and say, so and so is the real beauty. I’ve actually seen people say that Priyanka is not considered beautiful in India. I just find it unnecessary.

    • ZGB says:

      Why is it that whenever there’s a foreign celebrity covered here, people will come and opposing people’s comments when they find such a celeb stunning? Saying so and so is not that pretty, blah blah…

      I’m a regular Bollywood watcher and yes, Priyanka Chopra is pretty!

  35. Lisabella says:

    Back in 2010/2011 I sat next to Nick Jonas on a plane. Mind you, I never heard his music (I’m too old) but I knew who he was and taken aback as he began reading a book which described traites for a good “Christian” wife. I’m SO happy to hear this wonderful news!!!

  36. Soreall says:

    The are so mismatched!! She looks great but looks like his much older sister that all his friends would lust after. He seems so immature. Weird match.

  37. Mel says:

    They’ll break up in 2-6 months as they ” remain friends with the utmost respect for each other. Please respect our privacy. “

  38. Keke says:

    I’m really irritated by all the comments on here shaming her for dating a younger man. If they are both mature and get along then it’s okay. Im 36 and have dated men ten years younger than me. It is all about how mature the person is. I’ve also dated guys older than me (41) who were emotionally immature. It all depends on the person and their life experience. Some guys want to have a baby at 25, some women wait until their 36. It’s timing/chemistry/maturity levels and things you have in common.

    If joe was 36 and she was 25 no one would bat an eye.

  39. Sam H x says:

    This is surprising news! Didn’t expect them to be engaged so soon. They make a very good looking couple. You wouldn’t take a potential partner to a family wedding or to meet your family unless you were serious about them. I imagine they want to get married at some point this year hence her dropping out of the film which she was due to film from September onwards.

  40. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Mazel tov, kids. I’ll have cake and wine when the divorce is announced.

  41. D says:

    Games on point but the pickets broken this will end badly in a KFed kinda way. Run girl lock down a good one.

  42. Aggie says:


  43. jenna says:

    I dont wanna hear about the age difference when Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were those exact ages when they married. And people absolutely wet themselves over that freakin couple.

  44. MerrymerrymonthofMay says:

    He seems like a Man-Baby

  45. serena says:

    I don’t understand why celebrities often have this mad rush to get married.. I mean, after just 2 months? Doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.

  46. Jezza says:

    She’s so thirsty. That’s all I got.

  47. Marianne says:

    Whats with this recent trend? Nick and Priyanka, Ariana and Pete, Justin and Hailey.

    I get for some people you might *know* that they’re the one that early. But call me cyncial. I doubt these relationships will last and will be surprised if they even make it down the aisle.

  48. Jessica says:

    What do they call that? a May-December romance?
