After weeks of speculation and little more than a “thanks, man” to guide our suspicions, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have finally confirmed that they are, in fact, engaged. If we’re being honest, it was worth the wait because they did so by posting the most stunning photos of their roka ceremony, a pre-wedding Hindu tradition that the couple held in Mumbai.
Jonas had been spotted landing in India earlier this week with his parents. On Saturday, an Indian celebrity photographer posted several images of the couple celebrating their roka, including a few pictures of them during what appears to be a Lord Ganesha puja prayer ceremony.
One of these pictures made it to Jonas’ Instagram account, where he officially shared the news with the world: “Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love,” he wrote. It appears Chopra may have wanted to wait to make their engagement public until after the prayer ceremony, which is considered auspicious when someone is starting a new chapter of their life. Jonas seems to have very sweetly obliged and honored Chopra’s traditions.
Chopra also posted the same photo with the caption, “Taken.. With all my heart and soul..” (Jonas adorably commented, “Wow congrats… He’s the luckiest guy in the world.”)
A few hours later, Chopra posted a few more shots from the ceremony, including a sweet one of she and Jonas with their parents. Her culture and family both played major roles in the celebration, and Chopra let us know as much with a caption that reads, “The only way to do this… with Family and God. Thank you all for your wishes and blessings.”
There were also a few more outtakes from the engagement celebration, including some of the couple’s family and close friends:
Considering this is the most we’ve heard directly from Chopra and Jonas in weeks, we can barely contain our excitement. Chopra had given us a glimpse of her ring and we’d stolen a few clues from their social media, but getting a glimpse into their special day is way better—and adds another exciting chapter to their whirlwind romance.
