Madame Tussauds in New York City unveiled Priyanka Chopra's first wax statue post marriage.

The waxwork will be known as Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Sharing Instapix, PeeCee revealed that her wax figure will also be launched at other Madame Ts across the world including London, Sydney and in Asia, later this year.

'Me when I saw my new wax figure at Madame Tussauds in NYC @nycwax (Coming to other locations soon!!) 4 figures. UK, Australia, Asia coming up! Thank you to the Madame Tussauds team', Mrs C-J declared with a priceless expression.

Priyanka also posted an Instavideo and added that 'I love my eyebrows'. The waxwork wears a replica of the diamond ring her hubby gave Priyanka.

Priyanka worked closely with Madame Tussauds's artists, choosing to recreate her iconic Emmy Awards look with a gown by Jason Wu.
