Who is Kevin Jonas' Wife, Danielle Jonas?

Let's go back to 2007, when fate (read: the lovebug) would bring Kevin Jonas and his future wife together. The two were on separate family vacations in the Caribbean at the same resort.

"I'm so happy you had to make that call 11 years ago," he captioned a photo of them in the same location over a decade later.

Kevin proposed to Danielle on her New Jersey doorstep in July 2009. He presented her with a cushion-cut engagement ring he designed with Jacob & Co.

I remember the date we met May 23rd. The date we got engaged July 2nd, And of course the date we were married December 19th."
He continued, "I remember these not because I'm good with numbers. (I'm a musician, after all.) I remember them because they are the three most important days of my life. I guess not counting my birthday, since if I wasn't born, I never would have met Dani. ... This is just the beginning, we haven't even started our journey and I can not wait for the next 10 and then the next. I love you to the moon and back."
