According to an insider, Jonas had to get a Tiffany store in New York closed down to buy an engagement ring. “They are so happy,” the source told people.com. Another source close to Jonas said that the singer is “very, very happy.” Seems like even Jonas’ friends and family and happy for the young star and the news. “His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her,” the source added.
On Friday, Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar announced on Twitter that Priyanka will no longer be a part of the Salman Khan-starrer movie and that the decision came in “the Nick of time”, making a clear pun on her relationship with Jonas. “Yes, Priyanka Chopra is no more part of ‘Bharat’ and and the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her… Team ‘Bharat’ wishes Priyanka Chopra loads of love and happiness for life,” Zafar tweeted.
Ever since Priyanka and Jonas were rumoured to be dating, the two were spotted quite a number of times together walking hand in hand. Earlier this year, the couple left everyone surprised when they appeared together on the Met Gala red carpet. It was then that rumours about the two dating started circulating like wildfire. After that, the paparazzi often spotted the duo together. At the Met Gala, Priyanka had just laughed off a romance with Jonas, insisting they simply shared an agent and were friends. She had also said they went to the Met Gala together as they were both wearing ensembles by Ralph Lauren. Later, they walked arm in arm at Jonas’ cousin’s wedding in New Jersey, apart from being seen roaming around on a boat with friends over America’s Memorial Day weekend in May. Priyanka was photographed cuddling up to him in a group photograph while they attended a Dodgers baseball game in New York together the same month.
Priyanka was also seen celebrating July 4, the American Independence Day, with Nick and his family. Recently even Nick had visited Priyanka’s family and friends in India and attended Akash Ambani’s wedding with his ladylove and was also spotted similar gold rings. Though the news of their engagement is yet to be confirmed by the two, their fans are already excited and now looking forward to their wedding.
