Priyanka Chopra reveals Nick Jonas patted her back instead of kissing her on their first 'unofficial' date
The couple went on their first unofficial date in 2017 and Priyanka Chopra's soon-to-be husband Nick Jonas was a total gentleman and did not make any moves on her. As the couple gets ready to tie the knot, they recall how it all began.
In Priyanka's January 2019 cover story for Vogue, the couple got candid about getting a drink at The Carlyle in N.Y.C. just a week before they attended the 2017 Met Gala together as guests of Ralph Lauren. After they had their cocktails, the 36-year-old Priyanka invited 26-year-old Nick to her apartment where the couple found Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra watching 'Law & Order' in her nightgown.
After their date, Nick left without giving Priyanka a kiss which she was disappointed by and shared, "We hung out for a couple of hours. He patted my back before he left." Nick added, "There was no kiss. There was nothing." Priyanka responded to this by saying, "There was a back pat," to which Jonas added, "She’s still upset about that. Your mom was in the house! I thought it was a respectful first night."

"It was too respectful if you ask me," Priyanka joked. Post attending the Met Gala together, Nick's older brother Joe knew that Priyanka had stolen his heart and said, "I think she kind of knocked him off his feet. He was just this little puppy dog." Priyanka also felt a very powerful connection to her husband-to-be and she fell in love with him.
"I’ve had that rule my whole life. Never publicly acknowledge a relationship. Ever. What is happening? I’ve not known myself like this. This guy turned me into such a girl! If I could blush, I’d be tomato red right now," Priyanka said referring to how falling for Nick changed the way she approaches a relationship.
The couple arrived in Jodhpur, India, on Thursday where they will get married in a traditional Indian ceremony as well as a Western one. As reported by PEOPLE, a source shared, "It is super important to Priyanka to have an Indian ceremony that honors her heritage and culture, just as it’s important to also have a Western ceremony that honors Nick’s Christian upbringing. They are doing both."
