Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle Jonas have announced that they are expecting their first child together early next year.

Kevin – one third of the pop group The Jonas Brothers — and Danielle, who star in their own reality television show, Married to Jonas, announced the pregnancy on E! News. “I was overjoyed… it’s the most exciting thing in my life so far,” Kevin said.

Kevin also expressed his love on his various social media accounts, including a cute comic on Instagram and Twitter with the caption: “Love is…hearing your going to be a dad!!!!”

“So pumped for my mom to be @daniellejonas you are going to be an amazing mom and can’t wait!!!! #babyjonas,” Kevin tweeted following the announcement. Within hours, #babyjonas became a trending topic on Twitter.

Not to be outdone, Danielle also reached out to fans on Twitter.

As for Kevin’s famous younger brothers, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas, Kevin said that they are extremely excited about the news, though he seemed skeptical of the idea of them as potential babysitters.

“I don’t know how much I’m going to trust Joe with the baby,” Kevin joked in the interview. Undeterred by the dig, Joe and Nick expressed their joy at becoming uncles.

The expecting couple smiled throughout the interview and expressed their impatience to find out their baby’s gender – which Kevin revealed would happen in the next couple weeks. “I want to find out because I want to go shopping!” exclaimed Danielle.

Kevin and Danielle got married in December 2009 after a two-year courtship, making him the first Jonas Brother to be taken off the market. Married to Jonas premiered last year and has chronicled both their marriage and the career of the Jonas Brothers over two seasons.

The Jonas Brothers are currently in Chicago to kick off their summer tour.
