Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra has opened up about her future with Nick Jonas, revealing the couple is planning to have children together.

In a new interview with Vogue India, the actor speculated about settling down with her husband in Los Angeles.

“Buying a home and having a baby are on my to-do list,” Priyanka said. “For me, home is wherever I’m happy, as long as I have the people I love around me.”

The Baywatch star married Nick Jonas in a lavish ceremony at the end of 2018 which was attended by her now sister-in-law, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and Nick's brother Joe Jonas.

In the interview, Priyanka also revealed that the wedding has inspired an upcoming movie collaboration with Mindy Kaling.

“The story basically came from my wedding, where a bunch of Americans were exposed to this grandiose palace – the food, the family, the culture, the clothes and the comedy that comes with it,” Chopra told Vogue India.

The celebrations, which lasted several days, featured a number of traditional outfit changes for the couple, a larger-than-life bridal party and a host of celebrity guests.

Priyanka, whose career began when she was crowned Miss India and Miss World in 2000, also opened up about her difficult start in the movie industry.

“I didn’t know anything or anyone. I was yelled at by directors, I was thrown into movies, I was thrown out of movies,” Priyanka said.


The actor said she managed to cope by listening to her father's advice. “The more you talk, the less you will listen and the less you will learn,”Priyanka said.  “I learnt it’s what you do after failure that makes you a success." This isn’t the first time Priyanka has discussed the possibility of having children.

Earlier this year, the 37-year-old revealed children were on the horizon when the time is right.

“In 10 years, I definitely want to have kids,” Priyanka told People. “That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully earlier than that. “I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”
