When The Jonas Brothers (comprising of Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas) dropped their second studio album in 2007, it heralded the beginning of a golden era that saw the band achieve mind-blowing success. The group also cultivated legions of fans all over the globe who fervently believed and hoped that their beloved band would go on forever. However, as most boy bands eventually do, the Jonas Brothers disbanded in 2013. Since then, Joe and Nick have gone on to establish thriving solo careers while the oldest Jonas, Kevin, has largely retreated from the spotlight. This has left many fans wondering where he is and what he has been up to. Are you one of the curious cats? Then read on and discover all the answers right here.
Career Beginnings And Breakthrough
Paul Kevin Jonas II was born on the 5th of November 1987 in Teaneck, New Jersey. He and his brothers hail from a musically inclined family. Their father, Paul Kevin Sr. is a songwriter and musician while their mother, Denise Marise is a singer-turned-teacher. Given this kind of background, Kevin and his brothers unsurprisingly mastered several instruments at an early age. They also took to making music together and their first recorded single, Please Be Mine, eventually landed them a recording contract with Columbia Records in 2007.
The Jonas Brothers dropped their debut studio album, It’s About Time, in August 2006. The album failed to make much impact but the brothers remained undeterred. They switched record labels and dropped their eponymous second studio album a year later. The album was a smash hit, peaking at number 5 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. It also spurned several hit singles, including S.O.S, Year 3000 and When You Look Me in the Eyes. Following their breakthrough, Kevin Jonas and his brothers went on to release other chart-topping albums. They also featured in several Disney productions before parting ways, as a result of creative differences in 2013.

Luckily for music fans, after a six-year interregnum, the Jonas brothers made a triumphant comeback in 2019. They dropped a well-received amazon documentary titled Chasing Happiness. They also dropped a successful studio album, Happiness Begins which debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. It also spawned several hit tracks including Sucker which won best pop at the 2019 MTV VMAs. Additionally, Kevin Jonas and his brothers have also toured extensively since their comeback.
Family Life Of The Singer
Kevin Jonas is happily married to fellow New Jersey native, Danielle Jonas nee Deleasa. Danielle is a former professional hairdresser-turned-jewellery designer and entrepreneur. So, how did the couple’s love story unfold? Legend has it that Kevin first met his wife while their respective families were vacationing in the Bahamas in May 2007. He immediately fell for her and they eventually started dating. They dated for nearly two years before getting engaged in July 2009. The couple subsequently tied the knot on the 19th of December that same year.
Before their nuptials, many people expressed concern about the fact that they were quite young. The lovebirds, however, stuck to their guns and have gone on to prove the naysayers wrong. Their union has lasted for a decade during which they have welcomed two daughters – Alena Rose, born in February 2014 and Valentina Angelina, born in October 2016. The couple has also maintained a stable and scandal-free marriage. In December 2019, Jonas took to his Instagram account to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. He described his wife as his “best friend” and “forever love” and declared that she made him a better and stronger person.
How Much Is Kevin Jonas Worth?
Kevin Jonas has a net worth estimated at $20 million. A significant portion of this comes from his music career. During their heydays, the Jonas Brothers sold not less than 50 million records. They also sold out several concerts and generated millions of dollars in revenue. Another important source of Jonas’ wealth is his several business ventures. The singer is the CEO of several companies, including JonasWerner, a real estate development company based in New Jersey. He is also the founder of The Blu Market and PhilyMack Games. The former assists aspiring social media influencers to grow a massive following while the latter is a game development company that develops mobile games for interested artists, as well as other entertainers.
On a final note, Jonas is also tapping into the tech industry as he has launched an app known as Yood. Yood is a location-based search app which assists users to discover nearby restaurants that serve the kind of dish they are craving for.
Where Is Kevin Jonas Now?
Following the breakup of the Jonas Brothers, Joe and Nick forged on with their respective musical careers. Nick released two well-received solo albums while Joe became the vocalist of a successful pop-funk band known as DNCE. Kevin, however, went an entirely different route. The oldest Jonas brother dabbled into the real estate sector and set up a development company known as JonasWerner. He also spearheaded several other business initiatives such as The BluMarket and PhilyMack Games. However, with the 2019 comeback of the Jonas Brothers, Kevin is returning to his musical roots. His wife has since expressed her joy at this fact and stated that she is very happy that their daughters would get to see daddy in his real element.
