Joe Jonas has only been an uncle for one week, but the crooner admitted that he’s already head over heels for his newborn niece.
“It feels awesome. It is kind of a whirlwind. Honestly, I am ecstatic. I wish I could spend more time every day with her,” Jonas told Yahoo at the RAW for the Oceans Collaboration Between G-Star RAW and Bionic Yarn event at The Museum of Natural History in New York City on Saturday.
Joe’s brother, Kevin, 26, and his wife, Danielle, 26, welcomed their first child, Alena Rose Jonas, on February 2.
Naturally, Joe is already scoring cool uncle points by showering the newest member of the family with gifts. “There are a couple gifts on the way. There’s a gold baby rattle that I want to get her from Los Angeles, that I saw the last time I was there. I think she’d really like it.”
But until those gifts arrive, Joe said he wouldn’t be opposed to singing a couple lullabies to little Alena. “I would sing something by the Beatles,” the 24-year-old star revealed.
While he’s clearly enjoying his new role, the “Fastlife” singer admitted that being around the tiny tot does make him a little nervous. “I would never [drop her]. I am very careful, but it definitely makes you nervous,” he shared. “The baby is so fragile.”
Joe officially just jumped from teenage heartthrob to adorable uncle.
