Jonas made the first move—by sliding into Chopra’s Twitter DMs. He sent the first message in September 2016, he recalled to Vogue, after gushing over the actress with their mutual friend, Quantico star Graham Rogers. (Nick even teased meeting Chopra through Rogers in a 2017 interview.) Chopra responded to Jonas’ message day of, telling him to text her instead. And that’s how he got her number.

Chopra and Jonas actually had their first face-to-face encounter at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in 2017, months before the Met Gala. Nick didn’t waste any time; he got down on one knee the moment he saw Priyanka at the celebration. “You’re real. Where have you been all my life?” he told her, in front of a bunch of people, the singer told Vogue.

But Priyanka said she only had five minutes to chat, as she had to catch a flight to India. By the time Ralph Lauren invited them to the Met Gala, they had already been flirting via text for months.
