Kevin Jonas Gets Engaged to Longtime Girlfriend

July 1, 2009 6:46 PM ET

Kevin Jonas took a break from the Jonas Brothers' current arena tour for a very special reason: to propose to his girlfriend of two years at her New Jersey home. Kevin, 21, has been dating Danielle Deleasa, 22, since the pair met while vacationing with their families in the Bahamas in 2007. He took an overnight flight after last night's show in Vancouver for the early morning surprise.

"She said yes, yes, yes like 500 times super fast in a row," Kevin told People. "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."

In a statement, Jonas' parents say, "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. 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."

Younger brothers Joe and Nick Tweeted their excitement: "congrats big brother.....Dani welcome to the family, we can't wait to have you join us on the road! love Joe and Nick."

While Kevin is now officially off the market, Joe and Nick remain unmarried — but in relationships. Nick is rumored to be reunited with former flame Miley Cyrus, while Joe — who talked to Rolling Stone about his very public break-up with Taylor Swift — is currently linked to actress Camilla Belle.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
