Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are both global stars with huge individual reputations, but to each other they are also simply husband and wife.

Following a few careful direct messages from the former Jonas Brothers band member in late 2016, Priyanka and Nick finally had the opportunity to meet in 2017 – and once they had they didn't waste any time before making the most of their evident chemistry and connection.

The couple have now been married for four years and share one child together.

Join HELLO! magazine as we look back at how this celebrity couple's relationship blossomed from a few flirtatious text messages to a strong married relationship.

How did Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas meet?

Priyanka and Nick were first introduced via a mutual friend, Graham Rogers. The actor had worked with the Bollywood star on her film Quantico, and with the singer when he starred in Careful What You Wish For.

After being set up by Graham in 2016 to chat via Twitter and through text messages, Priyanka and Nick got to know each other in what the former Disney star later described to Vogue magazine as "friendly [messages] with an eye toward flirtation". But the two didn't get the opportunity to meet until several months later.

The couple first spent time together in person at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party in 2017. Nick made his move and propositioned to the Baywatch star that they should hang out and get a drink together, despite the fact Priyanka was about to leave to catch a flight to India.

"I put my drink down, [got] on one knee and [said], 'You're real. Where have you been all my life?'" Nick explained in 2018.

"Five minutes," was her reply, but those five minutes still provided the spark which the couple needed to see to consider making things more official.

When did Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas get married?

The two A-listers tied the knot in 2018 in a wedding covered exclusively by HELLO!. Following on from their first meeting in February 2017, the couple continued to talk and meet up before they made their first public outing together as a pairing at May's Met Gala. However, they were still shy about media attention relating to the nature of their relationship.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! just one week following the Met Gala, Priyanka refused to admit that she and Nick were an item, instead teasing: "We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together. It was fun."

The couple then didn't meet up again until a whole year later, but their chemistry was still obvious to see. Again in the tell all interview about their relationship which they did with Vogue in 2018, the 30-year-old artist revealed that after just their third date, he called his parents to tell them he wanted to marry Priyanka.

His dreams came true in late-2018. After getting engaged during a Greek holiday in Crete in July 2018 and following the couple's Roka ceremony in August, Priyanka and Nick married at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur in a three-day ceremony which lasted from November 30 to December 2.

Are Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas still together?

Yes, the couple have been going strong for over five years now and are showing no signs of breaking apart.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight following his wedding to The Matrix Revelations star, Nick explained how their love had been "an instant thing." He continued: "I knew once we locked in together that I had a partner for life and a teammate, someone I could walk through the good times and the bad times with, and that was the key."

Speaking at the Women in the World Summit in April 2019, Priyanka opened up about how for her things had taken a little longer, up until one date in 2018. "I didn't think that this would be what it turned out to be, and that's maybe my fault. I judged a book by its cover," she admitted.

She then went on to explain that this changed when Nick refused to convince her to cancel a meeting so that they could hang out together, instead telling her: "I will never be the one who will tell you to cancel work because I know how hard you've worked to be where you are. So if you could've cancelled it, you would've done it."
