Congratulations are in order for Kevin and Danielle Jonas.
Giving the term ‘Twitter party’ a whole new meaning, the former Jonas Brothers star, 26, literally live tweeted the birth of his first child after wife Danielle went into labor on Sunday (February 2). The couple welcomed a baby girl named Alena Rose Jonas after about 8 hours in labor.
“#babyjonas is on the way!! Follow dreft for all the updates!!!!! It’s showtime #thisisnotadrill,” the excited father-to-be tweeted earlier in the day.
The singer went on to give fans a play-by-play of his wife’s labor, tweeting, “He we go we’re pushing!!!! #babyjonas.”
When their daughter arrived, Kevin announced the birth through Dreft laundry detergent:

In early January, the couple opened up to Us about the baby name. “[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 went on to talk about becoming a father.
“I can’t wait for Daddy days,” Kevin shared. “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.”
