Nick Jonas is opening up about being a new uncle to brother Kevin Jonas’ 3-week-old baby daughter, Alena Rose!
“It’s great,” the 21-year-old singer told E! News exclusively at last night’s Vanity Fair and Fiat Celebrate Young Hollywood event at No Vacancy. “It’s an immediate responsibility and love for someone that you’re going to watch grow up, which is beautiful and I’m just so excited to watch her do that.”
Kevin and wife Danielle, who married back in December 2009, welcomed their first child on Feb. 2.
“I’m so in love with her,” Kevin tweeted on the day Alena was born. Just a few days after that, he shared an adorable photo of himself cuddling with his daughter.
As for how Kevin is handling being a father, Nick dished, “He loves it. He’s really finding out a lot about himself and about his family that he wants to build and it’s just a beautiful time for he and his family.”
Meanwhile, Nick opened up about his new DirecTV show Navy St. in which he’ll play a young UFC fighter.
“It’s a really, really great show,” Nick gushed. “The script is amazing and my character has a really interesting journey. Currently I’m just training and getting mentally and physically ready for that. But it is an exciting time in my life.”

Nick Jonas is returning to the small screen full time.
The singer-actor and The Glades alum Kiele Sanchez have nabbed co-starring roles in DirecTV’s family MMA drama Navy St., The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From Endemol Studios, Navy St. is a gritty drama set against the backdrop of a mixed martial arts gym in Venice, Calif., named Navy Street run by Alvey Henderson (Captain America’s Frank Grillo), a former fighter whose drug addiction prevented him from making it big.
Jonas will play Nate Henderson, Alvey’s youngest son who is his father’s pride and joy. Nate is a shy kid who receives a UFC contract. The character lives with his brother Jay, whose struggle with addiction has an impact on Nate. Parenthood’s Jonathan Tucker co-stars as Alvey’s oldest son, Jay.
Sanchez will play Lisa Prince, Alvey’s long-time girlfriend. The role marks the actress’ first TV gig following her four-season run on the A&E drama. Repped by ICM Partners, Industry Entertainment and Hirsch Wallerstein, her credits also include Samantha Who, Lost and Related.
For Jonas, the role marks his latest small-screen gig following guest spots on CBS’ Hawaii Five-O, NBC’s Smash as well as Last Man Standing and The Lying Game. It’s his first regular role since Disney Channel’s Jonas. His credits include Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, the Camp Rock movies as well as docuseries Married to Jonas.
The Jonas Brothers recently announced that the band would be breaking up following a “deep, creative rift” among the group after their concert tour was canceled last year.
Navy St. was created by Detroit 1-8-7′s Byron Balasco. DirecTV picked up the drama with a 10-episode straight-to-series commitment last year. The series will be DirecTV’s third original drama, joining Rogue and Full Circle. Navy St. will begin production May 5 in Los Angeles and bow on DirecTV’s Audience Network in the fall.
Jonas, who also starred on Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, is repped by CAA, The Jonas Group and Schreck Rose.

Nick Jonas Calls Being an Uncle “Amazing,” Shares First Photo of Him Holding Baby Niece Alena Rose
Sounds as though Nick Jonas is just as excited as brother Joe about being an uncle.
“It’s amazing,” he told E! News Wednesday, sitting alongside Demi Lovato for a chat about her upcoming Neon Lights Tour, for which Nick is serving as creative and musical director.
“I’m actually flying right after this to meet my niece for the first time,” the 21-year-old singer continued. “He [brother Kevin Jonas] in love with this baby, it’s ridiculous. He sends me pictures every 10 minutes. I think it’s just like the joy of his life right now, so I’m excited to go [see] him.”
Kevin and wife Danielle welcomed daughter Alena Rose, their first child together, on Sunday—and, happily, they’ve been quite forthcoming with baby pictures.
Joe Jonas had already shared a photo of a snuggly moment with his niece, and Nick added to the album today.
“My beautiful niece Alena Rose,” he captioned the pic, which features the wide-eyed infant, clad in a fabulous little onesie printed with hearts, looking intently at her uncle’s face (well, we can’t blame her for staring) while he’s holding her on the couch.
But before he had a chance to meet her, Nick also joked with Demi and E! News’ Kristina Guerrero about what topics to avoid while talking to new moms, like Danielle.
“Never bring up sleep,” advised Kristina, whose own little one is 6 months old.
“I won’t complain about breastfeeding with a mom, either,” Demi added, holding her own for effect.
Nick reassured them, “I was not planning on bringing up boobs.”
But he did plan ahead, revealing that he had gifts for mother and baby—he just needed to run home after his interview to pick them up before he went to the airport!
“I got her and my sister-in-law some good stuff,” Nick said confidently.

With the Jonas Brothers now a thing of the past, Nick Jonas has accepted a day job: He’s the Musical and Creative Director of Demi Lovato’s Neon Lights tour, which kicks off February 9th in Vancouver, British Columbia. “I’m overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging,” he tells Rolling Stone. “And then I’m extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I’m building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts.”
Jonas began working on the tour a few months ago, right around the same time the Jonas Brothers announced their split. “Demi and I have the same manager,” Jonas explains. “I was immediately excited when I was offered the position. The relationship that Demi and I had over eight years really gives me the insight into how to best communicate with her and her team.”
The show will feature songs from all four of Lovato’s studio albums, going back to 2008′s Don’t Forget. “I’ve been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks,” he says. “The biggest challenge has been just trying to rethink some of the music and see how we could compliment it with lights and video. I sat down with the band and said to them, ‘You need to step into this like it’s a new gig. None of these arrangements are going to sound like the originals, so you need to have an open mind.’”
Rehearsals were held in Los Angeles over the last few weeks and the whole team is about to head up to Vancouver to prep for opening night. “I won’t be at every single show,” he says. “I’ll get the tour up and running, make sure it’s running smoothly, and then check in every few weeks.”
Once the tour gets off the ground, Jonas will turn his attention towards his upcoming solo project. “Some of it is done and ready to be released,” he says. “I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline right now and I’m waiting to release some news about my music and my next steps. It isn’t quite locked in yet, but I have started making some music and now it’s all about lining up the pieces.”
The Jonas Brothers have only officially been apart for four months, but there’s no desire to even talk about any sort of future reunion. “At this moment we’re all focusing on ourselves and the things we want to accomplish,” he says. “That’s especially true with Kevin, whose wife just gave birth. That’s a major life change for him and a priority. Joe and I are really excited for him as well as the music we’re making. I can’t say that I know when [we might reunite] because there’s lots of excitement about what we’re making as individuals.”

Kevin Jonas and Danielle Jonas are officially on diaper duty!
The Married to Jonas stars welcomed a baby girl on Sunday, Feb. 2, E! News can confirm.
“We are overjoyed at the birth of Alena Rose Jonas,” the proud parents said shortly after the birth. “She is precious! We could not be more excited to start building our family together. We want to thank our family and friends for their love and support, and our fans for all of their well wishes.”
It was last July when Kevin exclusively revealed to E! News’ Giuliana Rancic that he and his wife were about to become parents.
“I was overjoyed,” the singer said at the time about learning Danielle was pregnant. “It’s been the most exciting thing in my life so far. I’m excited and I’m nervous.”
Kevin and Danielle met in 2007 while on vacation in the Bahamas with their respective families.
The couple tied the knot on Dec. 19, 2009, at snow-covered Oheka Castle in Long Island. Following their nuptials, the newlyweds honeymooned in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
In 2012, they became the stars of their own reality series, Married to Jonas, on E!
Kevin and Danielle have partnered with Dreft and the brand’s “Amazing Baby Days” app to capture all of the amazing moments from their pregnancy through their daughter’s first year.
Congrats, you two!

**TO WATCH THE INTERVIEW, GO TO THE SOURCE**
Baby Jonas is well on the way, and it sounds like Kevin and Danielle Jonas are well-prepared for their little one’s arrival already!
E! News’ Alicia Quarles recently sat down with the famous couple and got the scoop on how the parents-to-be are embracing this new chapter in life, and we have to say, we’re incredibly impressed.
For starters, Dani looks absolutely stunning, showing off a trim figure with an adorable baby bump, dressed stylishly in a cranberry-colored silk top and leather leggings.
As for her enviable figure, the hot mama attributes her tiny frame to regular sessions with her trainer.
“I’ve been working out a lot. It has actually helped. I don’t think I could have gotten through this without working out,” she smiled.
“Our trainer Anthony Michael has been kicking both of our butts, so he’s been awesome,” added Kevin.
Of course, with Danielle’s due date looming in the near future, the baby gifts are starting to roll in, but Kevin confesses that his brothers Nick and Joe haven’t wrapped anything up just yet.
“They sent some flowers to the shower, and I bet they bring some stuff once the baby has actually been born,” Kevin shared, also revealing that he and his wife have also selected a baby name as well.
“We have picked a name, we’re really excited about it. It’s very special to both of us…it’s different enough for us,” they told us elusively.
And as if Kevin and Dani didn’t have enough on their plates right now, they’re also planning a big move very soon!
“I’m building us a house. Five months ago we broke ground, and in about two weeks we move in. So hopefully it gets done in time for baby!” Kevin smiled.
Now that’s one ambitious papa-to-be!
Wishing you two all the best!

It looks like we’re going to have a Jonas baby ANY day now!!
Kevin and Danielle Jonas are expecting the arrival of their little bundle of joy on February 6th, meaning they’re just weeks away from parenthood!
But is the soon-to-be-mommy keeping her growing baby bump keep her from the spotlight? HECK NO!!
In fact, Danielle was looking pretty darn hot as she slipped into some tight leather pants and rocked a pair of heels as she and Kevin attended the Deft Amazing Baby Days app launch event in New York on Tuesday!
And, luckily for us, we got to chat with the married parents-to-be EXCLUSIVELY! Kevin and Danielle dished about everything from pregnancy, being excited about their baby girl, and even Kevin’s upcoming Jonas projects! Read all the DEETS AFTER THE JUMP!!!
On the Amazing Baby Days app:
Kevin: The app is incredible. It’s kind of like a one stop shop for your digital booklet for your baby. It’s really a great way to direct — custom so many great people that are fans of the product. And they’re able to keeping track all your baby bump photos, pretty much everything you get on Instagram, everywhere all the time. It’s kind of the one place for you to kind of capture all the special moments and not miss a beat.
Dani: I like how you can capture your tummy growing, you know and seeing all the different months and you’re like oh I felt like I was so big last month but this month it’s a different story. And then also with shower gift, you know you get gifts all over the place for the baby and it’s a way to keep track of them. And then also then the baby comes and you can send thank you with her wearing it or playing with it and I think that’s the coolest part about it.
Your baby is due in early February. How’s the pregnancy been so far?
Dani: It’s been really good. It was a little rough in the beginning and then it got really easy. And then now I’m just kind of ready to see her.
Kevin: Ready to meet her.
What are you most looking forward to with your baby girl?
Dani: I’m really excited to hold her hands and see her face and see what she looks like. I can only imagine what she looks like right now!
Have you gotten any advice on being first time parents?
Dani: We get a lot of good pointers from a lot of people. You know our families are involved and telling us little things to keep in mind and everything but you hold on to those things and you kind of make it your own and that’s great.
Kevin: It definitely is.
What do you wish someone would’ve told you about what to expect from your pregnancy?
Dani: Well I wish that I was told a lot of things because I think women, they hold it in a little bit, but every pregnancy is truly different because some of my friends go through their pregnancies and then I’m going through mine and mine was totally different than theirs!
On working out while pregnant and staying healthy:
Dani: I don’t think I could have done it [being pregnant] without working out, honestly. I think that it makes you move and stretch a little bit. You have to be really safe with it. That’s why I work with a lot of trainers so that I’m careful, but just the movement and I don’t feel the aches and the pains that maybe someone would maybe feel because they aren’t moving. So I love it. I can’t wait to get there sometimes and then when I don’t get there I get grumpy.
On how much they plan to share about their baby girl, once she’s born:
Dani: I think we’ll be pretty open with everything. I mean we enjoy that the fans enjoy seeing us go through things and celebrating things with us.
Do you have a celeb mom role model?
Dani: I love how Jessica Alba has done things with her kids where you know she works so hard and then she has a family life that seems so normal. And I just love how she has such a good head about everything she does.
On what Kevin will be up to:
Kevin: I’m going to be working on a bunch of different projects. I’m really working on the business side of things. You know, right now, there’s a bunch of people lined up and a bunch of different opportunities, I can’t talk about everything, but there will be a lot more Jonas coming your way pretty soon. And you know we’re excited. Each one of us has an opportunity to do something great in individual space and I get to do it not only by myself, but with my family as well, which is my wife and my new baby.
On Nick and Joe in Hawaii:
Kevin: Our guitarist got married and his wedding was in Hawaii! We were supposed to go, but then we got pregnant and Dani’s on baby watch, so we were not able to fly. But it’s cool. They’re enjoying the heat; we’re enjoying the cold!
Such a sweet couple!

Kevin Jonas is unsure about the future of the Jonas Brothers, but when it comes to his relationship with Joe and Nick, he admits they’re working on “being happy for each other.”
Kevin and his wife Danielle Jonas sat down with HuffPost Live on Wednesday (Jan. 8) to discuss their show, “Married to Jonas” and their new app called Amazing Baby Days, which was created to help other new parents and document their journey to parenthood. But host Nancy Redd got Kevin to dish a little bit about the Jonas Brothers’ split and their canceled tour.
The three brothers called off their 19 tour dates in October just two days before the shows were about to kick off, with their rep telling People, “There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big disagreement over their music direction.” And although the group isn’t ready to try out another reunion anytime soon, Kevin admits they’re supporting each other during this tough time.
“I’m not sure [about a reunion]. We just made the announcement a couple of months ago and we’re all working on our own individual things. I think it’s way too early to tell,” he explained. “Right now, we’re just kind of focused on our relationships as brothers and kind of just being happy for each other and each one of our own journeys.”
As for his brother Joe’s recent comments about smoking weed with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato when they were teens, Kevin says, “We all had fun, we all did.”
“The difference is, each one of us had our own journey and mine was, I found a great girl early on and stuck with her and got married early and now having a baby and that was my life,” Kevin said. “And that’s the path I chose. And I’m really excited about that and I’m happy.”
Kevin and Danielle are expecting their first child, a baby girl, next month.
Wednesday, January 8th, 2014
Danielle and Kevin Jonas said the name of their baby girl “just kind of came to us.”
Kevin, 26, who’s expecting his first child any day now, admits to ABC News that “Jonas is a weird last name, not that many things go with it.”
The singer, who announced the pregnancy in July, added that that the name he and his wife chose “rolls off the tongue.”
That’s about as much as the “Married to Jonas” stars will say right now regarding the name.
“We are trying to keep that a secret because everyone knows we are having a girl, but right when she’s born, we are going to tell everyone,” Danielle said. “It’s different enough, but not too crazy.”
Danielle added that the baby’s middle name has special meaning to her in particular.
The couple, who married in 2009, spoke to ABC as part of a promotion they are doing with Dreft’s new app “Amazing Baby Days,” which Kevin said helps him stockpile all the photos of Danielle’s pregnancy to make a digital booklet to share down the road.
The couple may have the first and middle names all picked out, but the nursery is a work in progress.
“I am building us a house and we are about two and half weeks away from moving in,” Kevin said. “The nursery will be here at the end of next week. The walls are painted. The floors will be stained this weekend, you could move furniture and you could live there, it’s fine.”
Danielle added that they painted the walls purple because “there’s already so much pink for girls everywhere.”
Kevin, who along with his brothers announced the split of their band the Jonas Brothers in October, said he’s excited that “everything we do now will be different,” after the baby’s born.
“Going to a restaurant which we’ve gone to a million times will be different, getting in the car will be different,” he added.
But he admits there’s going to be tough times too.
“There are going to be times where that baby is not going to stop crying and I’m not going to know what to do, and nothing we are going to do is going to work,” he said. “But we are going to get through it and it’s going to be great. We are not even going to remember it the minutes she starts to smile.”
The couple has also decided not to take any classes prior to the baby’s arrival, so that everything that happens will be fresh and new.
“I think you just learn by experience, trial and error,” Danielle said.
As for more kids after this one, Kevin said “we definitely want a larger family” and that because he spent his life around his brothers, “I actually wanted girls.”
“I said four, but maybe after this one, three,” Danielle joked. “It’s tough.”
Danielle, who had to be on an IV drip early in the pregnancy, added that this experience was tough at first, “then it got really easy. Now, the past couple of days, it’s like I’m done, this baby has to come out soon.”

The Miss Universe Pageant should introduce a special category this year: Cutest Couple in the Wings.
And we’re just sayin’, Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo would run away with the crown!
E! News caught up with the singer-actor and the outgoing Miss Universe in Moscow, where Culpo will help crown her successor this weekend, and they were extremely supportive of each other and sounded genuinely happy to be halfway around the world together.
Asked what he’s learned about his girlfriend of several months while watching her go about her Miss Universe duties in Russia, Nick sounded genuinely impressed.
“Ever since, beyond just this trip, I think that this trip specifically though, just seeing…all the hard work, but watching her and what she’s done this last year and a half of her life, it’s amazing,” the newly solo artist said. “She puts a lot of hard work in and I’m just happy to be a part of it and do whatever I can.”
Olivia, who looked adoringly at her man as he talked adoringly about her, then credited Nick with providing a respite from her packed schedule.
“Well, time with my family and a good relationship is definitely what makes it easy,” she said, again looking at her boyfriend, “so those things kind of balance out with the hard work. And being able to give back and being able to inspire people with the crown and sash is an honor.
“It’s something that I was only able to do for just the year, and I’m just excited to have had that and to be able to pass it on to somebody else.”
And pass it on she will this Saturday, to one of the 86 beauties vying for her crown at Crocus City Hall in Krasnogorst, Moscow Oblast, Russia.
“It’s great,” Nick said again about being around to witness the process. “I’m so happy to be able to come and be a part of the…support.
“She’s obviously someone I care a lot about, so I’m happy to be here and it’s a nice trip for me to just come and enjoy.”
Sounds like we’ve got a winning couple right here.

When the moment came to break up the Jonas Brothers on Oct. 3, Nick Jonas tells PEOPLE that he went “into a bit of trance.”
“You prep a million ways,” says Nick, 21. But once he admitted to his brothers how he felt, that he wasn’t sure the band could continue as it was, “there was sort of a shut-off that happened. It took some time, about 24 hours or so, before we could really talk about it.”
On Tuesday came the exclusive announcement to PEOPLE that, as a professional music team, the sibling trio are “over for now.”
At first, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25, said they were shocked by what went down.
“Kevin and I thought we were going into a meeting about releasing some of the music we’d been working on,” says Joe. Instead, Nick told them he was considering calling it quits.
Joe says he didn’t say much at first, but Kevin and Nick talked late into the night. By the next morning, the brothers began to speak openly, in a way they never had before.
“There were tears and yelling from everybody,” admits Nick.
But, adds Kevin, “It was the most real, the most intense conversation that we’ve had in our lives together.”
Ultimately, the brothers decided, the best way to save their personal relationship was to break up the band. “Prioritizing our family is really important to us,” says Nick.
“We’re choosing our family because it was becoming toxic,” says Kevin, who admits his relationship with his brothers was suffering, in part, because his focus was elsewhere.
“I wasn’t contributing to the music the way I should have,” says Kevin, who, admittedly, is more interested in the business side of things.

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013
Nearly three weeks after the Jonas Brothers announced they were canceling their tour due to a “deep rift within the band,” the brothers tell PEOPLE that they’ve decided to call it quits.
“It’s over for now,” Kevin Jonas says.
“It’s really hard to say ‘forever,’ ” says Nick. “We’re closing a chapter, for sure.”
“It was a unanimous decision,” says Joe.
It came after a meeting on Oct. 3, where Nick Jonas confessed to his brothers that he had serious concerns about the future of the band.
“I was feeling kind of trapped,” he said. “I needed to share my heart with my brothers.”
