Priyanka Chopra, 39, reveals she wants children with husband Nick Jonas, 29

Priyanka Chopra Jonas has revealed that having children with Nick Jonas is definitely in their ‘future’.

The Quantico star, 39, – who tied the knot with the 29-year-old Jonas Brothers star in 2018 – has insisted starting a family with her other half will happen when the time is right, but when they do become parents, she plans to ‘slow down’.

Speaking in the February issue of Vanity Fair magazine – of which she is the cover star – Priyanka said: ‘They’re a big part of our desire for the future. By God’s grace, when it happens, it happens.’

When the interviewer mentioned the couple’s hectic work schedules, Priyanka quipped: ‘No, we’re not too busy to practice.’

The couple both agreed it’s best to focus entirely on their future child when they do become parents.

She added: ‘I’m okay with that. We’re both okay with that.’

While the Baywatch star has always been all about the ‘next job’, these days she is ‘craving family life’.

She explained: ‘My priority has always been the next job. I’m a very, very ambitious person. But I think the woman in me is craving balance.

‘I’m craving my family life. I’m craving being able to do things for the soul that I didn’t do because I was just ‘blinders on’ and working.’

The Matrix Resurrections star also admitted she has become a lot more guarded and ‘introverted’ because being in the spotlight ‘takes it out of you’.

She said: ‘I think maybe that’s why I’m becoming a lot more introverted as I go along on this journey in the entertainment business now.

‘I’m starting to protect myself a lot more because I realise how much it takes out of you.

‘It takes a part of your soul, constantly trying to make sure that you say the right thing, do the right thing, dress the right way, not make a mistake, not trip because the whole world is going to watch.

‘Or not fall when you’re walking up on a red carpet or say something wrong or have a bad f***ing day. I feel like I am at a precipice of reinvention.’

After becoming one of the biggest movie stars in India, Priyanka left home at the peak of her Bollywood career and created a career in America.

Later this year – with the rom-com Text for You and Amazon’s spy series Citadel – she will finally be playing lead film roles at the level she had in India.

She said of the step up: ‘It’s taken a lot of pavement pounding to be able to get people’s attention, and to be able to get an acceptance of the fact that someone like me can be the lead of a Hollywood feature.

Rest: She said: ‘I’m craving my family life. I’m craving being able to do things for the soul that I didn’t do because I was just ‘blinders on’ and working’

‘There’s very few of us from South Asia who get to do that. I hope that the part that I play in it will sort of push the envelope a little bit.’

In 2015, she was cast as the lead role of FBI trainee Alex Parrish in the ABC series Quantico, which allowed her to move back into acting. 

‘Quantico for me was a really big win,’ she said ‘Not just because of being the first time an Indian or South Asian actor was lead of a network show, but, more than that, because I was not put in the box, like the show wasn’t My Big Fat Indian Wedding.

‘After that, I just started looking for parts like that, where my ethnicity is something that is an asset [but] I’m not defined by it.’
