It’s been awhile since the Jonases were thinking pink, but everything has changed now that Kevin and Danielle Jonas, who wed in 2009, are expecting a baby girl in February.
“I’ve been around boys a lot in my life, so it’ll be nice to have a girl,” Kevin, 27, tells me in his office overlooking the pool at their Denville, N.J. home during OK!’s exclusive visit to promote the Dreft Amazing Baby Days app. “She’ll be actually the first Jonas girl, by blood, in a long time. We’re really looking forward to it.”
Danielle adds, “I didn’t even think of that. I didn’t know that. Wow.”
Is he nervous?
“No,” he says. “I’m more excited than anything—and ready. I’m ready for it to happen, ready for it to be here. We’re crossing fingers that it’s all good.”
Danielle adds, “Ask him after [the baby’s born]. I think he’s going to be shocked.”
“Probably,” he says.
Danielle jokes, “‘Oh my gosh, it’s a girl, what do I do?’”
What most excites them about having a girl?
“I mean, it’s a girl,” she says with a laugh. “I always think of being in the kitchen with her and cooking, and having her stir something, or putting a little apron on her. There’s more in common. She becomes your little best friend—other than my big best friend [Kevin]. [laughs]”
Will new dad Kevin be changing diapers?
“Of course,” he says. “I think it’s a team effort. There will be late nights for me, and late nights for her, and early mornings for me—notice I didn’t say early mornings for her.”
“She has a harder time in the morning, and I can withstand early, early mornings,” he says. “It’s all good.”
In the name department, we can look forward to an Italian moniker .
“It’s unique,” she says. Kevin adds, “In a traditional kind of way.”
Is Danielle nervous about giving birth?
“Yes, of course, what first-time mommy wouldn’t be?” Danielle says. “But the excitement of her arrival outweighs the nerves. We’re ready for her to be here already.”
What delivery advice has she received from family and friends?
“Everyone knows I’m freaked, so they aren’t telling me too much, but we’re taking classes.”
