Kevin Jonas‘ 2-year-old daughter Valentina Angelina and his younger brother Nick Jonas‘ new wife Priyanka Chopra are solid now, but there was a time when the little girl wasn’t so sure about the family’s new addition. Dropping by The Late Late Show on Monday, March 4th alongside Joe Jonas for the Jonas Brothers‘ first visit of several throughout the week surrounding their reunion announcement, Nick and Kevin dished about how the family dynamic has changed since the former began dating Chopra.
“She’s very territorial,” added the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star, who wed Chopra in December after a July engagement that followed two months of dating.
“She was just like, ‘No.’ It just became an ongoing joke,” Kevin continued of little Valentina. “I’m not sure Priyanka loved it at first, but they’re cool [now].” “[Priyanka] was like, ‘This is so funny…’” Nick hilariously recalled, putting on a not-quite-convincing tone.
Kevin’s wife Danielle Jonas—with whom he also shares 5-year-old daughter Alena Rose—recently clapped back against accusations that she was “shading” Chopra by taking to social media to wish Joe’s fiancée Sophie Turner a happy birthday last month. One Instagram user wrote, “The low-key shade in this tho. I love sassy Dani,” to which another replied, “I read it the same way… shade against priyanka right.”
“Nope, no shade about Priyanka,” Danielle fired back. “It’s just Sophie’s birthday so I wanted to say happy birthday. I think everyone should stop with thinking that we don’t like Priyanka she is lovely. Iam [sic] so over people trying to make a problem.”
