Even boy bands have to grow up one day, and it looks like Kevin Jonas is well on his way—or, y’know, already there: He and his wife of almost four years, Danielle, are currently expecting their first child together. Think the new little Jonas baby will make its entrance from the womb jamming on a tiny little guitar?
E! being the network behind Kevin and Danielle’s reality show, Married to Jonas, they were naturally the first to confirm the news. Kevin Skyped with Giuliana Rancic after learning about his and Danielle’s impending little one, gushing, “I was overjoyed. It’s been the most exciting thing in my life so far. I’m excited and I’m nervous.” Additionally, Kevin announced the news himself via Twitter yesterday afternoon:
It’s true @daniellejonas is pregnant! can’t even imagine how excited we are I can’t wait to share this with my best friend. I love you baby.

Kevin and Danielle met in 2007 in the Bahamas, where they were both vacationing with their respective families. Kevin proposed in July of 2009, and they wed that December in Long Island, New York at Oheka Castle. Talk about a winter wonderland.
From there, of course, it was only a matter of time before the baby talk started up. One memorable sound byte that comes to mind is this little tidbit, which came from Kevin last July: “We’re at that [3-year] mark and people are like, ‘All right, guys, what’s your plan? When are you going to have those grandkids? I’m starting to feel that pressure a bit.”
A large part of me thinks, good gravy, will people just stop asking married couples the dreaded “when are you having kids?” question already?! Maybe they’ve been trying without success, and it’s a sore subject for them. Maybe they’d rather adopt. Maybe they CAN’T have kids. Maybe they just don’t want them at all! Whatever the answer is, their “plan” is none of your business. End of story.
At the same time, though, I realize that Kevin and Danielle have decided to live out their married lives on television—indeed, the aforementioned sound byte was actually part of an episode of Married to Jonas—which effectively makes whatever the “plan” is EVERYONE’S business, whether we want it to be or not. Siiiiiigh.
In any event, congrats to the happy parents-to-be—just do us a favor and don’t televise the birth. Trust us: You REALLY don’t want to start edging into Kardashian territory. It’s a jungle out there.
