Recently, a certain blog was pushing a story about reality star Danielle Jonas not being pregnant and was faking her pregnancy for ratings on her E! reality show. “Married to Jonas.“
Now Mrs. Jonas is putting the rumors to rest by appearing on the cover’s of FitPregnancy with her husband Kevin Jonas and dishes on how she told her hubby they were having a baby.
When asked about how she told 26-year-old Jonas about the good news, Danielle revealed to the magazine:
“First, I took like 12 tests to confirm it. Then I took all the socks out of his drawer and filled it with diapers and a bib that said, ‘I love Daddy,’” the mom-to-be says in Fit Pregnancy‘s December/January issue.”
She then added, “I also put all the tests in there and a sign that said, ‘I’ll meet you in nine months.’ Then I put his socks downstairs in a basket.”
“When he got home, I was like, ‘Kevin, can you go put your socks upstairs?’ And he said, ‘Can I just eat first?’” she recalls. “I was like, ‘Really?’ I was pretty pissed about it. And then he saw what was in the drawer.”
Adds Kevin: “I was in shock. I was just like, ‘Oh my God, it’s happening! My life’s about to change completely!’”
Despite all the changes that accompany a pregnancy, Danielle — who has been open about her struggles with anxiety — is learning to cope through exercise and the help of her doctor.
“Honestly, working out has really helped. It makes me feel good,” she explains. “I am still taking antianxiety medication, but at a really low dose. They say if your body is stressed out, that’s not good for the baby, so I figured this was the best thing for me.”
Along with preparing for the February arrival of their baby girl, the Married to Jonas stars are also building their dream home — including a nursery complete with a bird carved crib, all inspired by Snow White — and debating which strollers would best suit their daughter.
As Kevin, 26, dreams of spoiling the couple’s first child, Danielle is hoping to keep their little girl grounded. “I want things to be special to her. I want her to feel like she’s earned things,” she explains.
