(CNN)Rosie O’Donnell has issued an apology to Nick Jonas and “the Chopra wife.”

The former talk show host shared on TikTok that she recently embarrassed her son, his girlfriend and friend Fran Drescher during an outing at Nobu restaurant in Malibu.

Seated next to them, O’Donnell said, was Jonas and his wife, actress and producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas, though O’Donnell never actually says Chopra Jonas’ first name in the video.

O’Donnell said she “always assumed” that Chopra Jonas was author and alternative medicine advocate Deepak Chopra’s daughter.

“So when I said, ‘Hi, Nick Jonas. You were great in Kingdom’ and ‘Hi [to Chopra Jonas]I know your dad.’ She goes, ‘You do? Who’s my dad?’ I’m like, ‘Deepak,’ ” O’Donnell said. “She’s like, ‘No, and Chopra is a common name.'”

O’Donnell said she felt ” so embarrassed” before asking her TikTok followers if she was the only one who thought that.

Her son weighed in off camera with “You had one job!”
