The Jonas Brothers Biography

jonasbros23A musical trio of tousle-haired brunettes, the Jonas Brothers were called “Disney’s emo heartthrobs” by Rolling Stone magazine in 2008. The three handsome brothers are Kevin (b. 1987), Joe (b. 1989) and Nick (b. 1992). They were born in different states but raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and home-schooled by their mother and their father, an Assembly of God minister. Nick took small roles on Broadway as a child, including a stint as Chip in the Disney musical Beauty and the Beast. He later recorded a solo album, Nicholas Jonas, which led Columbia Records to sign him and his two older brothers to a band contract in 2005. The Jonas Brothers toured that summer with Jesse McCartney and released the album It’s About Time in 2006, establishing their friendly peachfuzz-guitar sound. (Nick sings lead, Kevin and Joe play guitar, and all three dabble in other instruments.) Still, the band didn’t really take off until they signed with Disney’s Hollywood Records in 2007. Helped along by Disney clout and exposure, their 2007 album Jonas Brothers went platinum while they toured with another Disney star, Miley Cyrus. Their Disney Channel movie Camp Rock (co-starring Demi Lovato) was released in 2008. They released another album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, in 2009.  Extra credit: Kevin Jonas became engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Danielle Deleasa, in July of 2009… Nick was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in November of 2005… Kevin’s name is Paul Kevin Jonas II, but he is called Kevin… A fourth Jonas brother, Frankie, was born in 2000 and is not in the band; fans call him the Bonus Jonas… The brothers don’t publicize their birthdates. Nicholas Jonas was born 6 September 1992, according to the online Boy Choir and Soloist Directory. According to, Kevin Jonas was born on 5 November 1987, and Joe Jonas was born on 15 August 1989.

Kevin Jonas Gets Engaged to Girlfriend

kevin-jonas1Kevin Jonas surprised his girlfriend Danielle Deleasa by showing up at her doorstep in New Jersey early Wednesday morning and dropping down to his knee to ask her to marry him. Presented with a cushion-cut diamond ring that Jonas designed with Jacob & Co., Deleasa couldn’t believe what was happening.   Then, “She said yes, yes, yes like 500 times super fast in a row,”  Jonas, 21, and Deleasa, 22, who met in May of 2007 while vacationing with their families in the Bahamas, haven’t set a wedding date yet.  Overnight Flight
When Deleasa, a former hairdresser, first met Jonas two years ago, she admits, “I didn’t know who the Jonas Brothers were.” It was Kevin who eagerly pursued her after meeting her and then spotting her walking on the beach with a flower in her hair.  Jonas popped the question after arriving in New Jersey on an overnight flight from a concert in Vancouver. “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,” he says.  And while the news is bound to break a lot of young girls’ hearts, the Jonas family couldn’t be happier.  “Our hearts are filled with joy today and we are happy to share with you that our son Kevin has asked Danielle for her hand in marriage,” parents Denise and Kevin Jonas Sr. say in a statement. “Her answer was yes, and it is such a blessing that she will be joining our family. Kevin and Danielle have not yet set a date. Family is very dear to us, and we hope we have raised Kevin to be a wonderful man and husband. Please join us in our family’s celebration and in congratulating Kevin and Danielle. Thank you for all of your support.”  And younger brothers Joe and Nick said on their Twitter page: “Congrats big brother…..Dani welcome to the family, we can’t wait to have you join us on the road!”
