Nick Jonas and Priyanka were married in Hindu and Christian ceremonies in Rajasthan on December 1, 2018. They have been married for four years and have a daughter, Malti Marie Jonas, who was born in January 2021. The actor was recently seen in the Prime Video web series Citadel in which she plays a spy named Nadia Sinh opposite Richard Madden.
In an interview with singer-actor Jennifer Hudson on her talk show, Priyanka related the crazy story of how a young Nick watched her on TV when she was 18. She recalled, “When my mother-in-law told me that story, I was like ‘I don’t know…’. When I had just turned 18, I won the Miss World pageant. This was in London. This was November and I turned 18 in July. A complete child, and I had no idea what I was doing or what this world entailed, didn’t have a lot of practice. Apparently, my mother-in-law was like ‘I remember watching you when you won!’ I was in London, this is 2000. They were in Texas. I was like, ‘There’s no way!’
Priyanka continued, “She said, ‘I remember it so clearly because it was November. Nick was on some Broadway show at 7 years old. His brother was on some Broadway show at 8 or 9. And she said I remember this clearly because Kevin Sr, my father-in-law, loves watching pageants. I remember he was watching it and Nick came and sat down and watched you win. Which is unfathomable! That was 22 years ago or something. He was 7, and I was 17. And he was sitting there and he was watching. It was so weird. I do think that people are meant to be with each other for whatever that duration in your life is supposed to be.”
She also added, “I think that people collide because you’re supposed to create, on this small short life that you have, memories that you will take forward, family and I think that Nick and I had, through our lives, these weird enchanted little moments. But it’s lovely now to have found your person.”
The actor will begin her next filmHeads Of State, co-starring John Cena and Idris Elba, in the UK. Nick is touring the country with his siblings and their band, Jonas Brothers.
