Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have a whirlwind romance for the ages. Despite first interacting in 2016 — in which Jonas slid into his future wife’s DMs — the pair didn’t actually meet in person until 2017. Even then, they weren’t “official” until 2018. However, after just two months of dating, the couple got engaged in July before tying the knot mere months later in December. While their 10-year age gap initially worried Chopra, who is ten years Jonas’ senior, she revealed to Hoda Kotb on TODAY, after their first date, “I realized my husband is just like an old soul. He’s stability in human form.”

Since tying the knot, the heartthrob singer — one-third of the iconic Jonas Brothers boy band dynasty — and his uber-talented actress wife have gone on to welcome a baby girl into their family, and their love only seems to grow stronger with age. From their first red carpet appearance to the birth of their baby girl, to the present day, here’s a complete look at the couple’s relationship timeline.

September 2016: Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra First Connect.

Nick Jonas initially won his future wife over by sliding into her DMs — a true modern-day love story, if you ask us! Jonas initially reached out after watching Chopra’s show, Quantico, writing, “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet.” From there, Chopra gave him her phone number, and the two entered into a texting relationship.

In May 2023, Chopra appeared on the Call Her Daddy podcast, where she said, “The fact that he had the confidence to slide into my DMs and ask me out. I was like, what? I mean, people slide into my DMs, but no one has ever asked me…literally, like his message was, ‘I’ve been told we should meet.’ How cocky, so sexy.”

February 26, 2017: Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra Meet in Person for the First Time.

After flirting back and forth via text message for months, Jonas and Chopra met in person for the first time at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars party. Here, Jonas actually got down on one knee in front of what he described as “a bunch of people.” Luckily, his moved work, and Chopra joined him for a drink; however, they didn’t see each other again until months later at the 2017 Met Gala, but more on that below.

May 1, 2017: Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra Attend the Met Gala Together

Jonas and Chopra were both invited to attend the Met Gala with Ralph Lauren, where they got to know each other even more. “We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun," Chopra later revealed on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

After, Chopra invited Jonas back to her apartment. “We hung out for a couple of hours,” Chopra told Vogue. “He patted my back before he left.” In the same interview, Chopra joked that she was disappointed Jonas didn’t kiss her; however, she said, “There was a back pat.” After their Met Gala “date,” Nick’s older brother, Joe Jonas, told Vogue, “I think she [Chopra] kind of knocked him off his feet. He was just this little puppy dog.”

A month later, the two started publicly flirting on Instagram. After Chopra posted a snap of a recent trip to In-N-Out, Jonas commented, “That smile,” along with an adorable heart emoji. Chopra, meanwhile, returned the favor,  commenting, “Who is cuter?" on a video of Jonas with a koala bar.

In early June, Chopra went with Jonas to his cousin’s wedding, where the two were spotted walking arm-in-arm. They were also spotted enjoying dinner together in NYC.
