Just two months after news of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's relationship went public, People is reporting that they're engaged to be married.

Priyanka innocently replied, "We were both wearing Ralph Lauren and we decided to go together, 'cause it was fun." Kimmel followed up about his age, saying, "Isn't he like 11 years old?," to which Priyanka giggled and said she didn't ask.
