Exciting news for the Jonas Brothers: Eldest brother Kevin Jonas is expecting his first child with his wife of three years, Danielle.
“Dani and Kevin are thrilled that Dani is pregnant with their first child. They are, of course, elated, and so excited to share this news with their fans,” the rep confirmed in a statement. “They are very much looking forward to building a family together.”
Kevin also broke the news via Twitter.
“It’s true — Danielle is pregnant! Can’t even imagine how excited we are,” the 25-year-old tweeted on Tuesday morning. “I can’t wait to share this with my best friend. I love you baby.”
The couple — married since 2009 — has chronicled the ups-and-downs of wedded bliss on their E! reality show Married to Jonas. The pair has long wanted to have kids — and a source even claimed to the National Enquirer that Jonas wants to have “a daughter named Madison Grace.”
“Danielle is one of three siblings, and Kevin comes from a big family, too, with three younger brothers,” the insider told the tabloid after their wedding. “Kevin is serious about becoming a dad ASAP. He’s even picking out baby names!”
Kevin has even joked that they want “nine kids,” but in reality, they get pressure from both families to add a baby to the mix.
“People are like, ‘All right guys, what’s your plan? When are you going to have those grandkids?'” says Kevin, 24, in a 2012 clip from Married to Jonas. “I’m starting to feel that pressure a little bit.”
“My mom wants a grandkid bad. It’s getting boring now,” Danielle added.
Their lives won’t be boring anymore! Kevin and Danielle haven’t revealed details of the pregnancy yet, but he told E! News’ Giuliana Rancic that he’s “overjoyed” to become a dad.
“It’s been the most exciting thing in my life so far.”
Congratulations to Kevin and Danielle Jonas!
