The date was 25th May 2018 when Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ lives entwined without them knowing that their first date was just the precursor to many more. And today, happily and blissfully married for over a year now, the couple is busy reminiscing fond memories of that special day and celebrated their first date anniversary with the most adorable posts on their social media handles.
“2 years ago today we took our very first picture together. Every day since then you have brought me endless joy and happiness,” Priyanka Chopra Jonas, 37, posted, along with a throwback photo of herself and hubby Nick Jonas at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, both wearing blue baseball caps.
“I love you @nickjonas. Thank you for making our life together so incredible,” she continued. “Here’s to many more date nights…”
Soon after this lovely post, Nick Jonas also posted an image from 2 years ago, from their first date where the happy couple can be seen posing in cowboy hats.
“This beautiful woman and I went on our first date two years ago today,” Nick Jonas, 27, wrote. “It has been the best two years of my life, and to think I am lucky enough to get to spend the rest of my life with her is such an incredible blessing. I love you babe. Happy two years @priyankachopra.”
Well, this was all about their sweet first date, but the story of how they met each other is equally adorbs!
In a 2018 interview with Vogue, Priyanka Chopra shared that it was Nick who reached out to her…with a message sent to her Quantico co-star Graham Rogers. Any guesses what the message was?
“‘Priyanka. Is. Wow,” Jonas shared, stressing that’s not how he talks but evidently someone was smitten.
As he didn’t have her number, he sent a direct message to Chopra on Twitter. “I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet,” he explained, adding, “She responded the day of with a message that said, ‘My team can read this. Why don’t you just text me.'”
The texting soon progressed to “friendly with an eye toward flirtation” followed by them finally meeting at a 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars party, after which they headed to her apartment, and as Chopra shared, Nick was a perfect gentleman and merely “patted my back before he left.”
Well, thus began Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s love story and before fans of the Barfi actress knew, the duo was tying the knot on 1st December 2018, first during a Western wedding in India and then in a traditional Hindu ceremony the next day.
