Kevin Jonas is a pop star and one part of the three-member band Jonas Brothers (with his brothers, Nick and Joe), but his life is not what many people would expect a celebrity’s life to be like. It seems Kevin has very little time for parties and socializing with beautiful strangers because he would rather be at home with his wife, Danielle, and their two little girls.
This couple has been married since 2009, but in 2014, they became parents for the first time, which changed their lives in many ways. They love being parents, but they are also honest about their struggles, and not everything about their journey has been perfect from the start.
