Priyanka Chopra Explains Why She Took Nick Jonas' Last Name

Priyanka Chopra Jonas sits down for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night (February 5) in New York City.

On the show, the 36-year-old actress spoke about why she decided to add “Jonas” to her last name.

“I always wanted to add his name to mine because I feel like we’re becoming family, and I’m a little traditional and old school like that,” she told Jimmy Fallon. “But I don’t take away my identity. He gets added to who I am.”

“The gravity of it, it’s like a big deal! I didn’t realize it was that much of a big deal until I did it,” she added.
