Priyanka Chopra's Mom Says 'Everyone in the Family Just Loves' Nick Jonas in New Interview
The couple got engaged in a small, traditional ceremony in India last week.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra announced their big engagement with a roka and an after-party last week in India. Now, the actress-singer’s mother Madhu Chopra has raved about Jonas following their ceremony in an Aug. 22 interview with DNA India.
“Nick is calm and mature. He’s a wonderful person and everyone in the family just loves him," she told the outlet. "He’s so polite and respectful towards elders. What more can a mother want!”
Jonas has also apparently been dedicating time to understanding and appreciating his future wife’s background and religion. “Nick enjoyed the prayers during the puja,” Madhu shared. “It was a new thing for him and he took it seriously. He followed what our panditji said, and chanted the Sanskrit mantras accurately.”
Same goes for both of Jonas' parents, Denise Miller-Jonas and Paul Kevin Jonas, who flew all the way to India to sit by their son's side during the rituals. "They are nice people," Madhu said about the Jonas family after meeting them for the first time before the ceremony.
Although a wedding date is still up in the air, one thing is certain: the couple will be tying the knot in a traditional Indian wedding, granting Priyanka’s mother’s only wish.
“My daughter knew I wanted a roka before the marriage, so she never said ‘no.' I haven’t forced any of my thoughts on her, but I definitely want a traditional Indian wedding. I started the roka with a puja, which is important for me. I’m a modern mother but at heart, I’m quite conservative,” Madhu shared.
The singer first introduced Jonas to her mother during their Mumbai trip earlier in June, and Madhu has been a full supporter of the coupler ever since. “I always trust Priyanka’s judgment; she’s not impulsive. She gave it a lot of thought and when she decided on something, I was sure it would be good,” she shared.
Content with her daughter’s pick and excited to finally see her settle down, Madhu fondly added: “It’s all destiny.”
