Earlier, Priyanka had faced backlash for the grand fireworks display after her Christian wedding with Nick. Netizens called her a hypocrite at that time and asked what happened to her disease and concern for the environment when she lit fireworks to celebrate her special day.

Meanwhile, Nick recently hosted a grand birthday party for Priyanka, who turned 37 on July 18. The actor was treated to a five-tier red and gold glittery birthday cake, to go along with the colour of her dress. 

Nick posted a series of videos from the party to his Instagram story, including one of him showing off the birthday cake.

Prior to the birthday bash, Nick took to Instagram to wish his wife on her special day. He posted two pictures of Priyanka that appeared to be from his brother, Joe Jonas` recent wedding celebration in France, and shared a heartfelt caption wishing her happy birthday.
