The twosome first got acquainted in September 2016 after the Jonas Brothers member slid into Chopra’s Twitter DMs. They continued to text from there and later connected in person at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, where Jonas got down on one knee to show his admiration for the Quantico alum.
Jonas and Chopra Jonas were then both invited by Ralph Lauren to attend the 2017 Met Gala in his designs, but the Indian star said in June 2017 that the pair were just friends.
Us Weekly broke the news in May 2018 that the duo were officially dating. At the time, an insider revealed that they were “a good match and they are both interested in each other.”
“He swept me off my feet,” the Baywatch actress wrote in her 2021 memoir, Unfinished, about their whirlwind courtship. “Once we started dating, I felt like I was being carried by a giant unstoppable wave.”
Still, the model admitted that she was “in shock” when he got down on one knee — but she was also excited to start their lives together. “Once I’d said yes, we stayed up until 8:30 in the morning FaceTiming our families and friends,” she wrote in her book. “Then the wedding planning essentially began.”
In January 2019, the Camp Rock actor opened up about the couple’s romance and the key to their marriage’s success. “It was kind of an instant thing,” he told Entertainment Tonight of their early beginnings. “I knew once we locked in together that I had a partner for life and a teammate, someone I could walk through the good times and the bad times with, and that was the key.”
The Don 2 actress, for her part, has shared how supportive Jonas has been throughout their relationship. “I really feel, like, being with someone like my husband now, there’s such an incredible power,” she said on the “InCharge with DVF” podcast in March 2020. “It’s so attractive to me that he … feels empowered when he sees me empowered.”
She added, “Like, he’ll stand on a [red] carpet on the side and watch when they’re taking pictures. He’ll, like, want to see things I’ve done. Like, he feels so proud.”
The Isn’t It Romantic star also told Us exclusively in January 2020 that Jonas is “the best guy,” adding: “Just knowing that I have my husband by my side is the best perk of all.”
The following year, Jonas teased that they’re hoping to add another little member to their family in the future. “We’d be blessed with any child, son or daughter or anything,” the Voice judge told Extra in February 2021. “Just knocking wood that it happens.”
The duo announced via Instagram in January 2022 that they welcomed their first child.
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” a statement on their respective social media pages read. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much ❤️.”
In April, Us confirmed their daughter’s name — Malti Marie Chopra Jonas.
