In 2007, Kevin Jonas, oldest brother in the sibling band, The Jonas Brothers, met Danielle, the woman who would eventually become his wife and mother to his kids.
The Couple Met In 2007
Their love story began during a family trip to the Bahamas. However, it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight, as Danielle wasn’t too convinced that she should be wasting her time with a boy she had just met on a Caribbean vacation. She assumed that they would never see each other again, but Jonas made sure that would not be the case.
The talented guitar player managed to get the New Jersey native’s phone number from her older sister and then proceeded to call his future wife as soon as he plane landed back home.
“That might have been a little overboard, but I just went for it,” Kevin previously told Glamour.
At the time, Danielle was working as a hairdresser and living at home with her parents in Denville, NJ, which coincidentally, is only a few miles away from the Jonas Brothers’ hometown of Wyckoff, NJ. Little did she know that this chance meeting would lead her to capturing the heart of someone who was on his way to stardom. While the band hadn’t become famous yet, it didn’t take long before their careers took off.
Through a partnership with Disney, The Jonas Brothers hit the ground running with their fan-favorite track, “The Year 3000,” off their 2006 record, It’s About Time.
Jonas’ bold move to keep their connection going proved to be successful, and things began to move pretty quickly after that.
Who Said “I Love You” First?
During an interview with Young Hollywood, the couple revealed the sweet story behind who said “I love you” first.
“I was in the city with him when he came in for a concert [and] I went … to pick up my dog from my mom’s room,” Danielle recalled. “I said to [my mom], ‘I’ve been driving home and all I could think was is I can’t wait to say I love you to him.’ Like, I was holding it in because I wanted him to be first!”
“I knew [Danielle was the one] around the same time,” Jonas shared before adding that Danielle was on her way out of the hotel he was staying in when he said, “Love you, bye,” and quickly shut the door. “I turned around and I was like, ‘Oh no, oh no! Do I have to, like, say something now or just walk away?’ I panicked, and I just walked away,” he added with a laugh.
Kevin Proposed To Danielle After A Jonas Brothers’ Concert In 2009
Feeling confident in their commitment to one another, Jonas got down on one knee and proposed to Danielle following a Jonas Brothers concert in July of 2009.
“She said ‘yes, yes, yes’ like 500 times super fast in a row,” Kevin told People. “It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world.”
It was later revealed that Kevin’s brothers, Joe and Nick Jonas, had predicted their forthcoming nuptials back in 2007.
The brothers formed their band from a young age, and eventually rose to fame with Disney before splitting up in 2013. Each brother embarked on their separate journey before they reunited after a six-year hiatus. In celebration of them getting the band back together, they released a documentary titled, Chasing Happiness.
This film included a nostalgic clip of Jonas on the phone with Danielle in the early stage of their relationship. Being the normal brothers that they are, Nick and Joe decided to interrupt the call to annoy their older sibling. Nick can then be heard saying, “Sorry, we’re just really excited because she’s your wife.”

We’ll do kids in our time as well.”
