Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas were only together for a few months before they became husband and wife, so it makes sense that they’re still finding out new things about each other every day.

“We haven’t changed [since marrying], strangely, because we’re still navigating being — because we didn’t even date for a long time — we’re navigating getting to know each other,” the actress, 36, told Us Weekly exclusively at the Isn’t It Romantic premiere at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Monday, February 11. “It’s just magical because every day is like a new feeling and a new day and you’re learning something new.”

Us broke the news in May 2018 that the “Jealous” singer, 26, and Chopra Jonas were dating. They got engaged in July and married in December in the bride’s native India during a lavish weekend of traditional ceremonies.

“Two weddings! A lot of parties, a lot of parties,” the Quantico alum told Us on Monday. “You know what? Hopefully [you] just get married once, so you got to celebrate it!”

Now that they’re newlyweds, Chopra Jonas teased that she would like to collaborate with Jonas on a future project. “I’m pretty sure we will!” she said. “I don’t know how, but I’m pretty sure we will. We’re creative people and paths are bound to cross.”

In the meantime, the couple have a different type of collaboration in mind: starting a family.

“We both know that’s something that needs to happen, but it’s not something I think about very much,” the former Bollywood star told Us and other reporters. “We’re both very driven, we love our work, we’re married to our work, and we’re both very supportive of each other’s work, so I’m sure it will happen in an organic way.”

The former Jonas Brothers member was right by Chopra Jonas’ side at Monday’s premiere. “He had his arm wrapped around her tightly, and their chemistry showed though their body language,” an eyewitness tells Us. “They seemed totally in love and very connected. Nick stood back and let Priyanka do her thing. He looked so proud and supportive while she posed for photos.”

Chopra Jonas explained on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 5 that she felt it was important to take her husband’s last name because “we’re becoming family and I’m a little traditional and old-school like that.”
