Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s whirlwind love story has been one for the history books! The Jonas Brother and the actress raised eyebrows in 2017 when they walked the iconic steps in coordinating Ralph Lauren during the Met Gala. Still, following their fashion-forward (not a) date night, Priyanka played it cool and coy when asked about a potential relationship with the younger musician. 

However, a year -- and some flirty DMs -- later, Nick and Priyanka confirmed their romance, and shocked the world with an engagement. Five months later, on Dec. 1, the couple became Mr. and Mrs. Jonas during not one, but two ceremonies in India. 

While their love story seemingly began in 2017, Nick revealed that the first time he met his wife, at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars party, he got down on one knee.

"And I put my drink down,” Nick told Vogue. "Get on one knee—this is in front of a bunch of people—and I say, ‘You’re real. Where have you been all my life?’ Like, loud.”

Four years, one baby girl, and a lot of love later, Priyanka and Nick are still suckers for each other. In honor of their love story, ET is looking back at the couple's early romance, wedded bliss and all the moments in between. 

September 2016: Down in the DMs

Prior to the world knowing (or thinking they knew) about their romance, Nick took a very youthful approach when it came to getting in contact with Priyanka. In an interview with Vouge, the pair revealed the singer made the first move -- via direct messages.

"I’m hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet," Nick's message to Priyanka said. Nick confirmed the date was Sept. 8, 2016. 

"She responded day of with a message that said, 'My team can read this. Why don’t you just text me,'" he recalled.

Priyanka added, “Boy got the number."


May 2017: Met Gala Madness  

Fashion’s biggest night turned into a breakout moment that no one could have seen coming. During the 2017 Met Gala, Nick and Priyanka turned heads as they arrived at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art with Ralph Lauren. 

At the time, Nick was 24, and Priyanka was 34, and both were single. The "Jealous" singer was the picture of the perfect gentleman as he assisted the Quantico actress with her extended train. 

The following evening, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Priyanka was grilled about a possible romance, and kept it coy, noting that they didn't have the time to consider romance. 

"We didn't have time yet, maybe next time we meet," she told host Andy Cohen.

May 2018: Summer Lovin’  

One year after the Met Gala, Nick and Priyanka kept their love off the red carpet but heated up the romance over Memorial Day weekend. It began with a Friday night date at Beauty and the Beast Live at the Hollywood Bowl. On Saturday night, they were then spotted at a Dodgers game. An onlooker told ET at the time that Nick and Priyanka looked "very happy" and were "super smiley" together at the game. 

"They sat really close and were talking to each other a lot during the game," the onlooker added. "They didn’t show any PDA. It was just the two of them and they definitely were acting very friendly, and couple-like."

Then on Monday, the Baywatch actress joined the crooner and some of his friends for a yacht party. Following their weekend, Us Weekly confirmed that the pair was in fact, a couple. 

"It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other," a source told the outlet at the time.

At the time, a source told ET that an engagement would not come as a surprise to anyone in their inner circle. 

"This is the happiest Nick has ever been. The way he is with Priyanka is like nothing they’ve ever seen between him and any other girl he’s dated. His family adores her," the source said. "He is over the moon for her and knew immediately she was the one."
