Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle Jonas, welcomed their first child into the world Sunday, but not everyone believes it's legit. Following rumors that the singer’s wife was allegedly never actually pregnant, conspiracy theorists are now questioning the baby girl’s paternity.
Jonas, 26, formerly of the Jonas Brothers band, announced via social media the pending arrival of his first child, a daughter, with his wife of four years, Danielle Jonas (nee Deleasa) this weekend. “I’m so excited #BabyJonasIsComing,” Jonas posted Sunday, later adding confirmation that the former hairdresser turned reality star was officially in labor. “Here we go we’re pushing!!!! #babyjonas,” he said.
The baby’s name, Alena Rose Jonas, and a photo of the newborn (posted on social media via sponsored post from the laundry detergent company Dreft) have since been shared by the “Married to Jonas” TV star couple. Despite the updates, some fans are now bringing the child’s paternity into question following reports that Jonas, 26, was allegedly never actually pregnant. “ive been knowing that the jonas baby was fake since the beginning lmao im glad their getting exposed what a mess [sic],” posted user @stylinslay Sunday. “Lol whasn’t the whole Jonas baby fake for publicity?” posted another user, @teamnialhoran, Sunday.
Fans of the reality couple are not the only ones questioning the child’s paternity. Crushable.com also hinted at a possible “fake” pregnancy just days before the little one’s arrival. “The final conclusion that I came to is that based on when they announced the pregnancy and when they released the gender and the first sonogram, this baby was due between January 2nd and January 30th. And that’s today, so happy fake birthday Jonas baby who allegedly doesn’t exist!” reads the report, which also cited Jonas’ change in bump size as proof.
So why do fans think Jonas’ pregnancy was fake? Rumors of the couple’s allegedly “fake” baby first gained traction after BlindGossip.com posted a "confirmed" blind item in November confirming that the duo was feigning pregnancy. “Danielle Jonas of the reality show ‘Married to Jonas’ is NOT pregnant. She never WAS pregnant. The entire pregnant was a lie from the beginning,” reads the gossip site’s report, claiming that the couple used a series of synthetic bumps to trick fans in an effort to bump their reality show’s ratings.
The site originally reported that Jonas was planning to suffer from a “miscarriage” during her second trimester or announce that the child was stillborn. "They are frantic that we have exposed their lie,” reads an updated BlindGossip.com report, adding that the entire Jonas clan was “in” on the alleged fib, saying, “Every interview that Kevin and Danielle and Joe and Nick gave, talking about how excited they were to be parents and uncles, was a lie.”
Jonas first announced he was expecting a baby girl with his wife in July, the singer telling E! News the pregnancy has been by far “the most exciting thing” in his life to date.
