“I’ve known him for two years. I didn’t think that this is what it turned out to be, and that’s maybe that’s my fault, I judged a book by its cover. When I actually started dating Nick he surprised me so much… I call him Old Man Jonas. That’s my name for him, OMJ. He’s such an old soul, extremely smart, so good for me because he grounds me so much. I’m a wild child. I do whatever I want whenever I want and he always supports me.”
Priyanka also shared an initial encounter with her now-husband that proved he was different from other men she’s dated:
“One of the things that first struck me about him was we were on a date and it was time for the date to get over, we were [with] a bunch of friends, and I had a meeting… and I was dropping hints to my friends and they were like, ‘No, don’t go for the meeting. Just stay.’ And I was like ‘No, no, no. If someone gives me reason enough to cancel it, I’ll cancel it.’ And he just didn’t pick up the hint. I said it twice. I said it thrice.”
She went on to reveal how he completely surprised her with his value of her career:
“Finally he took me aside and was like, ‘Look, I’m not stupid. I know what you’re trying to do. But I would never be the one to tell you to cancel work because I know how hard you’ve worked to be where you are. So, if you could’ve canceled it, you would’ve done it. I’ll take our friends out for dinner and we’ll wait for you and you finish your meeting and come back. And I was just like, ‘That’s the first time someone’s ever done that.’”
Well that’s just the best!! We love a man who supports his partner’s dreams!
To top off sparks and support, the pair also have a vested interest in charity work:
“Nick has always been philanthropic… we come from a family where philanthropy is not a choice — it’s just what you do, it’s second nature… We’ve discussed many things that we want to do together, and we know we have the ability to. It’s in fact our favorite phrase, that we want to change the world in whatever way we can.”
Pri also chatted about their extravagant wedding again, because why the f**k not!
“Hopefully it will be the only one. I knew it was going to be three days because Indian weddings do have pre-rituals. And I knew that both of us wanted one wedding in each of our religions, so that was two days anyway. It all happened so fast. We decided to prep this wedding in October, and we got married the first of December and in that one and a half months we were like, ‘Yeah, that sounds great! Sure, let’s get that!’ And did not realize it until it was done. We saw videos, and then the bill. And we were like, ‘Cool cool, maybe we should have prepared this a little bit more.’ So that’s why it was so glorious.”
