Kevin Jonas and Danielle Jonas’ Complete 16-Year Relationship Timeline

All the Jonas Brothers and their relationships have been subjects of much interest and speculation, but Kevin Jonas managed to sidestep a lot of drama by finding his person in 2007. He and wife Danielle Jonas have been together for over 15 years and share two children, and it all harkens back to meeting while on their separate family vacations in the Bahamas.

Kevin actually shared a photo of the spot they met to celebrate their 11th anniversary, and it was at a wall of pay phones. So yeah, that’s a long time ago.

“I’m so happy you had to make that call 11 years ago,” Kevin wrote. “This is the spot we met and I thank God everyday for the gift he gave me. Here’s to a 100 more baby. I love you.”

Here is the complete relationship timeline for Kevin and Danielle Jonas.

May 2007

When Kevin met Danielle, then named Danielle Deleasa, she claims she didn’t even know who the Jonas Brothers were. That might have been part of her appeal. Kevin pursued a relationship with her pretty quickly. At the time, he was only 19 years old, and she was 20.

November 2007

Danielle made an off-camera appearance in the Jonas Brothers’ 2019 documentary, Chasing Happiness in footage from November 2007. His brother Nick and Joe are interrupting him while he’s on the phone with Danielle, jokingly asking for dating advice. After he’s annoyed, they apologize, and Nick jokes, “Sorry, we’re just really excited because she’s your wife.”

July 2009

They announced their engagement in 2009. Kevin asked for Danielle’s hand at her house, kneeling at her family’s doorstep with a cushion-cut diamond ring. Kevin told People that he designed the engagement ring with with Jacob & Co. and that Danielle “said yes, yes, yes, like 500 times super fast in a row.”

December 2009

The couple were married on December 19, 2009, on Long Island.

August 2012

Danielle and Kevin had a reality TV series, Married to Jonas, that premiered on E! in 2012, running for two seasons. It followed them as they settled into their New Jersey life. On the show they announced they were getting pressure to start having kids.

“People are like, ‘All right guys, what’s your plan? When are you going to have those grandkids?’” Kevin said. “I’m starting to feel that pressure a little bit.”

Danielle added, “My mom wants a grandkid bad. It’s getting boring now.”

That same month, they spoke to Young Hollywood in an interview a little bit more about how they knew they were serious about each other.

“I was in the city with him when he came in for a concert. I went … to pick up my dog from my mom’s room,” Danielle said. “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!”

She got her wish.

“I knew [Danielle was the one] around the same time,” he said.

As Danielle was leaving the hotel, he called out, “Love you, bye!”

He added, “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.”

June 2013

May 2020

Like most people, the couple hunkered down with their family during COVID-19 lockdown, and Kevin told The Morning Mashup it was the only nice part of the situation.

“I feel like this time has been really rewarding, to be able to spend with the family,” Kevin said. “We’ve actually been getting on very well, so I’m happy with that.”

November 2020

Danielle celebrated Kevin’s birthday with an old pic, writing, “Every year I try to think of what to write… there’s just too much to say after almost 11 years! I still can’t get enough of you, the girls and I are so blessed to have you in every way. I hope all your wishes come true this year. We love you more than anything!”

September 2021

The couple wrote a book together called There’s a Rock Concert in My Bedroom, saying it was inspired by their musically-inclined daughters. They announced the book in September 2021, and it was released in March 2022.

“Music has always been a foundational creative outlet in our family,” they said. “Now our daughters, Alena and Valentina, enrich our lives in ways we could have never anticipated. The love and care they show each other on a daily basis inspired this story and we are so proud to share how these girls not only uplift us and each other, but are creative, caring rock stars in their own right.”

October 2021

Before kids, Danielle would often tour with her husband, but Kevin said she still is a big part of his schedule when he’s on the road and major support.

“[Danielle] understands my rest schedule along with my ability to do the honey-do list when I am home,” he told People in October 2021. “Luckily she knows how to hold it all down.”

They do meet up on tour at times, however, and make sure to have quality time as a couple.

“We’ll have dinner before the show, either just us or with some friends we haven’t seen,” he explained. “It’s just a way for us to connect even though I’m away, and then we’re back into our regular rhythm.”

He continued, “We really try to even just sit down on the couch together. Honestly, some of our favorite times are when we sit on the couch and watch a show that we haven’t watched in a while together.”

March 2022

In March, Kevin added a bit more about how they talk constantly on the phone while he is on the road.

“We just constantly were able to communicate,” Kevin said. “It was great, but at the same time, there were moments we’d be like, ‘Okay, we’ve talked for two hours, and you called me back an hour later, there’s not much more we can talk about right now.’ But it’s still just about being connected.”

He added, “We really try not to spend that much time apart, no matter what. We’ve definitely had a two-week rule in the past, but now we try to make that even less. If that means flying home for a single day to be together, we will.”

June 2022

Kevin discussed being in a different place in their marriage as their daughters Alena and Valentina grow up.

“As our daughters start to get older and actually become a little bit more independent, so much has changed,” Kevin said in an interview. “We’re doing this new independent phase and starting to do our own thing again.”

July 2022

With the premiere of Kevin’s new show, Claim to Fame, with younger brother Frankie Jonas, he was surprised with a watch party by his wife.

January 2023

In 2023, the Jonas Brothers were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kevin shouted out his wife and daughters during his acceptance speech, and all three of them were by his side.

“Danielle, my beautiful wife, I love you so much,” he said. “I could not have done this without you. Your support over the last 15 years … you’ve seen us through all of it—the beginning, the middle, the end and then back again. Thank you for everything… Alena, Valentina, this is a pretty cool moment, don’t you think? This is cool, but you two are my brightest stars.”

March 2023

The Jonas Brothers had a five-night Broadway residency in March, and Danielle was there collecting pics and clips, which she shared on Instagram. She wrote, “Hubby’s Big Broadway Debut!! So proud.”
