Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle have welcomed their first child!
The new father live-tweeted his baby’s birth after his wife went into labor on Sunday. They welcomed their baby girl, named Alena Rose Jonas, after about eight hours of labor.
“#babyjonas is on the way!! Follow dreft for all the updates!!!!! It’s showtime #thisisnotadrill,” Jonas, 26, tweeted earlier in the day.
The former Jonas Brothers star went on to give fans a play-by-play of his wife’s labor, tweeting, “He we go we’re pushing!!!! #babyjonas.”
The couple announced the birth through Dreft laundry detergent, which tweeted, “On this day, a little star was born. Meet Alena Rose Jonas. #BabyJonas.”
The couple has had their first child’s name picked out for some time, telling Us Weekly in early January, “[The] middle name has a lot of meaning, but her first name is…different enough, but not totally out there. It’s cute.”
The oldest Jonas brother is excited to become a father, telling Us Weekly, “I can’t wait for Daddy days. I’m excited for the days I can just spend with her by myself. I want to take her to not typical little girlie things. I want to go to baseball games with her. Even just time at home — me and her one-on-one while [Danielle] goes to the grocery store or out with her friends. Something to give her a break too. She deserves it.”
