Kevin Jonas surprised his girlfriend Danielle Deleasa by showing up at her doorstep in New Jersey early Wednesday morning and dropping down to his knee to ask her to marry him. Presented with a cushion-cut diamond ring that Jonas designed with Jacob & Co., Deleasa couldn’t believe what was happening.
Then, “She said yes, yes, yes like 500 times super fast in a row,” the oldest of the Jonas Brothers tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Jonas, 21, and Deleasa, 22, who met in May of 2007 while vacationing with their families in the Bahamas, haven’t set a wedding date yet. “It still feels like a dream,” she tells PEOPLE.
When Deleasa, a former hairdresser, first met Jonas two years ago, she admits, “I didn’t know who the Jonas Brothers were.” It was Kevin who eagerly pursued her after meeting her and then spotting her walking on the beach with a flower in her hair.
Jonas popped the question after arriving in New Jersey on an overnight flight from a concert in Vancouver. “It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world,” he says.
And while the news is bound to break a lot of young girls’ hearts, the Jonas family couldn’t be happier.
“Our hearts are filled with joy today and we are happy to share with you that our son Kevin has asked Danielle for her hand in marriage,” parents Denise and Kevin Jonas Sr. say in a statement to PEOPLE. “Her answer was yes, and it is such a blessing that she will be joining our family. Kevin and Danielle have not yet set a date. Family is very dear to us, and we hope we have raised Kevin to be a wonderful man and husband. Please join us in our family’s celebration and in congratulating Kevin and Danielle. Thank you for all of your support.”
And younger brothers Joe and Nick said on their Twitter page: “Congrats big brother…..Dani welcome to the family, we can’t wait to have you join us on the road!”
When Kevin Jonas asked his girlfriend Danielle Deleasa to marry him early Wednesday morning, she was too stunned to notice the one-of-a-kind diamond ring he designed for her. “I didn’t see the ring for a while because I couldn’t believe what he just asked me,” Deleasa told PEOPLE. “I was looking at him, like “Are you serious? When he pulled out that ring, I was like ‘Oh gosh.’ I said something like ‘Oh my God,’ and then I started crying.” But once she wiped away her tears of joy — and said yes over and over again — what she saw before her was a three-carat cushion-cut diamond set in platinum above double shank band with 210 round pave diamonds (pictured here), according to Angela Arabo, Jacob & Co vice president, who worked with Kevin to design the ring. The star “had done his homework,” Arabo said. “He knew exactly what he wanted.” The two collaborated over the phone and email. “When he got the ring, he called me and said it was the most beautiful ring and it was exactly how he imagined. He was really excited. He couldn’t wait to propose to her.” Kevin Jonas, 21, proposed to Deleasa, 22, surprising her at her doorstep early on Wednesday morning — flying overnight after a Jonas Brothers concert in Vancouver. Arabo talked to the happy couple Wednesday night and wished them the best. “He was very happy and thrilled. Danielle is very happy and she has the ring on right now.” No wedding date has been set yet. Right now, Kevin told PEOPLE, ““We’re just ready to celebrate with friends and family and of course all our fans.” — Sharon Cotliar
Yesterday, tweens everywhere lost a Jonas Brother (at least it was only Kevin), and Twitter did what Twitter does—addressed the breaking news with plenty of exclamation marks.
And Diablo Cody celebrated the event with a zing: “Kevin Jonas is engaged! Next: Nick Jonas gets engaged way better.” Hey-o!
In other news, people are tiring of the constant Michael Jackson coverage, especially after Bubbles the Chimp was interviewed on CNN last night. But at least John Mayer has jokes to deal with it: “There is so much news coverage on Michael Jackson, last night Anderson Cooper interviewed the tiger from the “Thriller” album cover.”
Even MC Hammer had to express his irritation with the situation: “OK now CNN is back where I like them.. NEWS !!! Miss you Bud ! I said Bud…not Bubbles!!!”
And finally, everyone needs to take like two minutes out of their day and tweet Lindsay Lohan a “Happy Birthday.” The poor birthday girl was missing a special someone right before she officially turned 23 at midnight, and then Zoe Kravitz had to beg the Twitterverse to send Linds birthday wishes. So do it! Lindsay needs our attention/help!
