Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas definitely want kids, but they're in no hurry to get past their honeymoon period
The couple, who is currently busy hosting receptions for their friends and family in India, will soon leave for their honeymoon to an undisclosed destination
Newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who got married over the weekend, definitely want to start a family together. However, the couple admits that they are not above enjoying their honeymoon period first before settling down with family and kids.
"I always say, 'Man proposes, God disposes.' So I'm not taking any chances," says Priyanka, in her latest couple's cover feature this week on People magazine. "We definitely want kids, and when the time is right, it will happen." And Priyanka gets the full support from her hubby Nick, who adds while laughing, "Let us be married first for a while before we have to make all these big decisions. We’re in our honeymoon period right now and we will be for a very long time."
The couple, who is currently busy hosting receptions for their friends and family in India, will soon leave for their honeymoon to an undisclosed destination. When asked about the couple's honeymoon plans, Priyanka simply said that it was going to be at "some resort somewhere in the world".
Both Priyanka and Nick made their first red carpet appearance as a married couple on Wednesday, where the 'Close' singer tagged along with his wife for the launch of the Bumble dating app in India. As few would know, the Bollywood bombshell is an investor in the app and also advising on its expansion into India.
During their interview with People, the newly married couple also spoke about how they have made a mutual pact to prioritize each other every day, no matter how hectic their careers or schedules get. They have even made it a point to "speak multiple times a day and not go more than two weeks without seeing each other" to make marriage feel like a breeze.
"Distance can be hard on any relationship, but it has actually made us that much closer," the 'Quantico' actress explained. The pop star and the Bollywood diva got married in a five-day celebration in Jodhpur, India at the Umaid Bhavan Palace Hotel. "Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day," Priyanka told the media outlet. "But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be."
Nick and Priyanka had two weddings, a Hindu one and a Christian one, in order to honor the couple's respective traditions, something that Priyanka later called a "religious mash-up." For the western wedding, the groom's father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., officiated the ceremony, where the couple exchanged wedding bands by famed jeweler Chopard. The entire bridal party, as well as the groom's side, wore bespoke Ralph Lauren dresses since the designer label agreed to make an exception for Priyanka and Nick because of an emotional connection that the couple has with them.
The Hindu ceremony started off with wedding rituals such as the haldi and chooda ceremony. Guests even had a theme for this ceremony as they were supposed to adhere to a 'pink, orange, purple' color scheme. Nick played the Indian groom to the hilt, as he arrived on a horse (ghodi) to the venue. He was dressed like royalty, wearing a turban and holding a sword. Priyanka, dressed in a stunning red lehenga by Indian designer Sabyasachi, looked absolutely ethereal as a bride.
