After a beautiful, multi-day wedding celebration that included two ceremonies (one Christian, one Hindu), one might think that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas would be ready to escape to a private resort for their honeymoon. (Plus, think of all the sponsored opportunities!)
That’s not happening quite yet, though. Why? A very un-sexy reason: work obligations. The newlyweds made their first official public appearance as a married couple at the India launch of the app Bumble in New Delhi. Chopra, who joined the company as an investor and advisor this fall, said that the date for the launch was set before her wedding—and she didn’t want to miss the important event.
“My work and Nick’s work are very important to us,” she told India’s NDTV. “My commitments matter to me a lot. My word is my bond. And we had decided to do this a long time ago before anyone was getting married and so I stuck to my commitment. But besides that it’s something I’m really excited about as well.”
OK, that makes sense. So where will they go once they are able to slip away? Chopra insists that even she doesn’t know, as the trip seems to be on Jonas to plan—not that they’d necessarily tell the world anyway. “I have no idea,” she said. “Right now, I have just work commitments this whole month … And I don’t know. We still haven’t figured out where. I think it’s going to be a surprise though. I think that’s what my husband’s planning.”
But Chopra also offered some good advice for other newlyweds. “I would just tell brides out there, whatever your priority is, is right. It doesn’t matter if your priority is work, that’s right,” she said. “If your priority is honeymoon, that’s right. If your priority is doing nothing, that’s right too. Because as newlyweds, it’s really your turn. You get to do whatever you want. And with us, these are the choices we took that work for us.”
Cheers, you two! Hope you get some time off soon.
