Early Life and Background
Danielle Deleasa was born on September 18, 1986 and raised in the small town of Denville, New Jersey. She grew up in a close-knit Italian family and discovered a passion for dancing at the young age of 3. Danielle practiced ballet, jazz, tap, and lyrical dance throughout her childhood.
After graduating from Morris Knolls High School in 2004, Danielle went on to study fashion merchandising at nearby Montclair State University. It was while working part-time at her father‘s salon that a chance encounter changed Danielle‘s life forever.
Meeting Kevin Jonas
In 2007, Danielle met Kevin Jonas for the first time when he came into her father‘s salon for a haircut. They hit it off instantly and began dating shortly thereafter.
Fans of Jonas Brothers remember the exact moment Danielle entered their lives. In the band‘s 2007 documentary film Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, Kevin surprised fans by bringing Danielle on stage for a serenade during the song "When You Look Me in the Eyes." It was a sign of the whirlwind romance to come.
After two years of dating, Kevin proposed to Danielle in July 2009. “It was perfect,” Danielle later said of the proposal. “He did so good.”
Reality TV Fame on Married to Jonas

The show provided an intimate look into Danielle and Kevin‘s life as newlyweds, including their purchase of a home in New Jersey, travels around the world for Jonas Brothers concerts, and of course, plenty of family bonding.
While fans were initially skeptical about Danielle‘s reserved nature compared to the famously over-the-top Kardashian family reality shows, she soon won them over with her quiet strength, humor, and steadfast devotion to Kevin.
Married to Jonas ran for two seasons and 21 episodes. During the show, Danielle and Kevin welcomed their first child, daughter Alena Rose.
After the show ended, Danielle went on to appear in additional reality TV projects like The New Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger. But her most prominent role continued to be motherhood.
