- Priyanka Chopra has changed her name to Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Instagram.
- The Bollywood star updated her profile following her wedding to American singer Nick Jonas.
- Fans are expressing their excitement at the news.
The arrival of Instagram has brought about a whole host of new relationship milestones, from the first time your crush likes your photo to your first couple selfie.
Perhaps the biggest sign of commitment to a partner that a person can make on the social network is changing their name, which is exactly what newlywed Priyanka Chopra has done.
Following her lavish wedding celebrations with new husband Nick Jonas, Chopra has changed her name to Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Instagram.
The Indian actress and singer, 36, hasn’t amended her handle on the photo and video-sharing platform, nor her names on Twitter or Facebook.
And it appears the newlyweds are relishing their married status – Jonas, 26, commented on Chopra’s Instagram post of her Vogue cover saying “wifey.”

The Instagram update comes just weeks after Hailey Baldwin changed her name on Instagram to Hailey Bieber, following her marriage to Justin Bieber.
Newlyweds Jonas and Chopra have not only had a busy week of wedding celebrations with the eyes of the world watching, but they have also had to cope with a viral article questioning their relationship.
In a now-deleted comment piece on The Cut, writer Mariah Smith called Chopra a “modern-day scam artist” and accused the bride of tricking Jonas into marrying her.
The Cut has now apologised for the article, and fans across the world have rallied together to Chopra’s defence.
Somebody legit had the nerve to suggest that Priyanka Chopra, star of a dozen Bollywood mega-hits, is a social climber for marrying Nick Jonas, star of Camp Rock 2. https://t.co/dlktqBAftr
