Once upon a time, Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo seemed like the golden couple, but the singer and the model’s relationship ended after two years together back in 2015. And now, we know Nick is happily engaged to actress Priyanka Chopra, an engagement that came pretty quickly after the pair started dating. So when Olivia was asked about her ex’s upcoming wedding plans, she had the sweetest reaction ever.
“I think that any time anybody can find love, especially in this industry — because it’s difficult. You can see there’s a track record of things not working out. So I’m so happy for him,” she said on People Now. “I wish that everybody can find love and happiness. That does not mean that I would not wish that for him.”
So there we have it: she’s happy for her former bae! Olivia is totally right — everyone deserves to have their happily ever after and just because things didn’t work out between her and Nick doesn’t mean she wants him to never find love again. We can imagine it might not be the easiest thing ever to see your ex and his new love’s happy updated plastered everywhere, but Olivia is taking it all in stride. Since her relationship with Nick ended, she dated football player Danny Amendola – and after a three-month split, they’re currently back together and happier than ever.
“I think that if you want to make something work, you make it work. And I always just say that you can’t think about how. You just have to try your hardest and know what feels right and if it’s meant to be then it should be easy,” she continued about her relationship with Danny. “It should be something that is fun and if it doesn’t work out, then that’s because it wasn’t meant to be.”
So perhaps she and Danny are meant to be after all!
