First came Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, who got engaged a matter of weeks after meeting, then came Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, who are set to wed after rekindling their romance in May. And now, Priyanka Chopra is rumored to be joining the ranks of this summer’s speedy engagements, after reportedly accepting a proposal from Nick Jonas. The Quantico star and the American singer were first linked around two months ago, but have swiftly gone from strength to strength. The pair visited Chopra’s home nation together last month, touching down in Mumbai where Jonas allegedly met the 36-year-old actor’s family.

The engagement is believed to have taken place just weeks later, as Chopra and her 25-year-old beau holidayed in London. Jonas, who rose to fame as part of pop rock band the Jonas Brothers, popped the question on the Bollywood icon’s birthday on July 18, the BBC reports. The couple is yet to confirm the happy news, however a source told People magazine that Jonas proposed with a ring from Tiffany & Co. “They are so happy,” the source added. “His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her.”

The engagement was also alluded to by director Ali Abbas Zafar, who hinted at Chopra’s news as he revealed the actor would no longer be starring in his film Bharat. “The reason is very, very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her,” Zafar tweeted in a cryptic message. Jonas and Chopra were first pictured together May 2017, when they attended New York’s Met Gala together as friends.

“We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun,” Chopra told Jimmy Kimmel shortly afterwards. “Yeah we were on the same table. We know each other so we were like, ‘Hey you know what, let’s go together.’ And I was like, ‘Okay. Let’s go together!’ It just ended up working out.” However the pair weren’t romantically linked until May 2018, when they started stepping out together on a series of dates. Mabrouk to the happy couple!
