What’s It Like to Be Married to a Jonas Brother? Kevin Jonas and His Wife Danielle Fill Us in! Plus, Deets About Their New Reality Show!
New Jersey girl goes on vacation. Girl meets world-famous musician. They fall in love and marry. It sounds so close to a fairy-tale, it’s hard to believe it’s actually real life for Kevin Jonas (um, of the Jonas Brothers!) and his wife, Danielle (Dani). But going from girl next door to wife of a pop star isn’t the easiest transition, and the couple documents the challenges in their new E! reality series, Married to Jonas, which premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Read on for our interview with the couple!
Glamour: Back in the day, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey had a newlyweds-style reality show, too. What would you say is the biggest difference between their show and yours?
Kevin Jonas: We’re two and half years in already. They were right out of the gate, and we had some time under our belt together before we did something like that.
What else can we expect to see this season?
Kevin: A lot more of me and Dani, a lot of family, a lot of food, actually. We take a couple trips. You get to see me and my brothers in the studio a little bit. We’re spending more time here trying to be domestic. You really get to learn a lot about our life here in New Jersey and how we spend our time and how we deal with things that are normal situations for couples to deal with, but sometimes are a harder situation because of the circumstances at hand.
So, how is this new music you’re working on with your brothers going to differ from previous records?
Kevin: Right now, it’s a lot different. It’s definitely a heightened version of who we are. We have had some time to kind of live life, so we can write about it and share it. We needed that. We wanted those things to happen. It was important for us to enjoy that time, but at the same time, we really want to make the best music we can. So, we spend as much time needed to make it right.
We know you met while on vacation, but how did you start dating after the trip was over?
Kevin: You know how you’re supposed to meet somebody and call like two or three days later? Well, I cyberstalked her after we met and cyberstalked to see what flight she was going to be on coming home, and then I called her the minute she landed. That might have been a little overboard, but I just went for it.
How did you find out her flight?
Dani: You asked what day, and then you found out.
Kevin: There was only one flight on that airline going at that time. I think it was a little much, but hey, it worked out in my favor right?
Anything else about the show you want to add?
Kevin: We were very honest going into this, and we had a really nice time. We had fun, and we hope people watch!
And now, on to the Obsessed questionnaire–couples edition!
The TV Show we’re obsessed with watching is:
Dani: Say Yes to the Dress!
Kevin: I’m actually a big Duck Dynasty fan.
Our craziest Hollywood moment so far has been:
Kevin: I think my craziest Hollywood moment was performing at the Grammys with Stevie Wonder. I think that was a highlight for me.
Dani: Probably hanging out with Michael Buble. I got to meet him and everything–It was really cool.
Kevin: I made sure that hangout session was cut short.
The craziest married moment has been:
Kevin: I think traveling as much as we do and being on the road, the craziest thing is probably having our own little tour bus. For me and Danielle, it’s been our little house with Dani setting it up. Not many people get to do that, and we did so it was pretty great.
The album we’re listening to nonstop is:
Kevin: I’ve actually been listening to the new Zac Brown Band—their album is incredible.
Dani: John McLaughlin
The next time we have free time together, we’re going to:
Kevin: Have a date! Go see a Broadway show, actually. There’s a show she wants to go see—the new Matthew Broderick show, Nice Work If You Can Get It.
The one thing we could go bankrupt buying is:
Kevin: Puppies! We have a Maltese and a Morkie. So, we have a white one and a black-and-tan one, Riley and Macy. They’re regulars on the TV show.
Our go-to karaoke song to sing is:
Kevin: Journey. What’s their big song we sing together?
Dani: I don’t sing!
Kevin: OK, When a Man Loves a Woman by Michael Bolton.
The movie we’re both obsessed with at the moment:
Kevin: We watched The Adventures of Tintin in 3D down in our basement. We have a projector in 3D, and it was a really nice time.Our current obsession is:
Kevin: The Fancy. I’m absolutely obsessed with that. I talked to the owner, and it’s incredible the things they can do on that website.
Our guy crush is:
Dani: Channing Tatum.
Kevin: He’s pretty awesome. He’s the man. He does his thing and dances quite awesome. I haven’t seen Magic Mike yet, and neither has Dani. Or maybe she has seen it, and I just don’t know! [laughs]
Our favorite Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest is:
Kevin: We haven’t really done the Pinterest thing, but we follow a lot of cool peopel on Instagram. Dani has like 100 fashion…
Dani: Yeah, I like those, and then there’s Puppy Palace!
Kevin: There’s dogs in clothes on Danielle’s, and guy’s fashion on mine.
Tune in to E! this Sunday, August 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT to catch Married to Jonas.
