Their whirlwind romance and grand wedding last year were discussed far and wide. News of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas dating had just started doing the rounds in May 2018 last year, when in August the couple announced their engagement. What followed was a grand wedding at a Jodhpur palace in December- an event that was followed by both international as well as national media. 

Like a many fans, Nick Jonas' niece Valentina took time to warm up to the couple's relationship. The little girl was a bit territorial initially, said her father Kevin Jonas during an interview. 

The Jonas Brothers appeared on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden'  recently to promote their new single 'Sucker'. When Corden asked Kevin how his daughters had taken to new family members - referring to Nick's wife Priyanka Chopra and Joe's fiance Sophie Turner, Kevin admitted that his younger daughter took time to warm up to aunty Priyanka.

"They definitely do now... but at first it was all rough going. My youngest daughter Valentina, she is very connected to Nick. The day when she met Priyanka, she put her hand around his shoulder, every time her hand would go around Valentina, she would just push it off."

"And this just became an ongoing joke. I'm not sure Priyanka loved it at first but they're cool now." 

To this, Nick laughed and said that Priyanka thought the whole thing was"funny". 

The Jonas brothers have reunited after 6 years for a new single called 'Sucker'. The music video features the three brothers with their better halves popularly known as the J sisters. The Jonas family is gearing up for Joe and Sophie Turner's wedding this summer. Joe revealed at the show to host Corden, "We’re getting married this year. We’re going to have a summer wedding. I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be a lot of fun.” 

Revealing more details, he said, “We’re going to have a flag rugby game at the wedding, and a flag football game. So if all the groomsmen show up with black eyes and broken arms, I’ll be very proud.”
