Nick Jonas confirms engagement with Priyanka Chopra, says he wants a family

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have sent their fans into a tizzy with speculation about their rumoured engagement and upcoming nuptials. When addressing questions about their relationship, the two are choosing their words very carefully.

While Priyanka didn’t want to answer any questions about her engagement at a FICCI event in Delhi, Nick was a little more forthcoming at an event to launch his new perfume in the US.

According to an entertainment portal, when a fan congratulated him on his engagement, Nick said, “Thanks, man.” This is the closest Nick and Priyanka have come to acknowledging their relationship, after director Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted about PeeCee’s exit from Bharat in the ‘Nick of Time’.

Nick also said that he would like to start a family soon. “Having a family of my own is the goal, It’s definitely something that I hope will happen. I am not sure of the exact timeline. But, I need to give my nieces cousins at some point.”

Priyanka had earlier said, “I am a very live in the today, maximum live in the next two months kind of person. But [in] 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully earlier than that. I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”

Priyanka and Nick sparked rumours when they arrived at last year’s Met Gala together, both dressed in Ralph Lauren creations. The actress had explained on Jimmy Kimmel’s show, “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together. It was fun.”

It was Priyanka’s Quantico co-star Graham Rogers who introduced them, Nick revealed. “We met up like in New York the first time and the same day I think we found out that we are both going to the Met Gala with Ralph Lauren. And as strange as it sounds but we couldn’t have planned it. We just had a great time. She’s a lovely person,” he had said in an interview last year.

The two created quite a stir with their photos and social media PDA, and Mumbai visit. Nick also had dinner with Priyanka’s mother, Madhu Chopra. Priyanka has met and bonded with Nick’s family, and was his date for a cousin’s wedding, a while back.

It is reported that Nick popped the question to PeeCee on her 36th birthday in London. Nickiyanka- as their fans call them, are expected to get married on September 16.
