The Jonas Brothers kept their intentions to reunite the boy band a secret from fans for more than a year, but Kevin Jonas’ five-year-old daughter actually spilled the beans to friends at her school ahead of the announcement date.
When speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Jonas Brothers admitted what they thought was a well-kept secret was actually almost at jeopardy because of Alena.
‘She did tell her entire school that the Jonas Brothers were coming back — before the Jonas Brothers were [coming back],’ Kevin said.

Oops! During the show, Kevin admitted his daughter Alena (pictured next to Kevin) blew the reunion secret by telling her school class
Funny: The brothers joked about the moment on the Tonight Show. But they felt lucky the class was ‘tight-lipped’ about the reunion
Kevin had two children — Alena, five, and Valentina, two — with his wife, Danielle Jonas, while the band was on its seven-year hiatus.
During that time, Kevin was very much dad to Alena and Valentina instead of being a Jonas Brother.
But the little girl couldn’t help but share in the excitement of her dad’s band getting back together with her class.
‘We were trying to keep it a secret for basically a year,’ Nick explained on the Tonight Show. ‘We were making this documentary, making the album. And we’re like, “We got this on lock. No one’s gonna tell.”
‘Kevin comes home and says, “Guys, Alena told her whole class.” Luckily, those five-year-olds…they’re tight-lipped.’
This wasn’t the only time the little girl showed off her excitement for having a dad who was a Jonas Brother.
In a recent video shared on Kevin’s Instagram, it showed Alena with her parents being asked to introduce her dad.
‘I’m Alena and this is my dad,’ the youngster adorably said before asking her dad if she could reveal that he was, in fact, a Jonas Brother.
Hilarious: ‘Luckily, those five-year-olds…they’re tight-lipped,’ Nick Jonas said

Kevin said, ‘You can say it’, encouraging the little girl to say his title at loud. She then proudly said to the camera, ‘This is one of the Jonas Brothers.’
The band member described the moment on Instagram as the ‘best introduction ever’.
Neither Alena nor Valentina were around at the height of the Jonas Brother fandom, so now the youngsters get to now experience seeing their father on stage performing to thousands of fans.
The Jonas Brothers first announced their comeback in February on social media. Days later, their single Sucker was released to the excitement of fans across the world.
Since then, the reunion has been a whirlwind of press and performances, as the band worked to promote their new album Happiness Begins and their Amazon documentary detailing their comeback.
Kevin, Joe and Nick will go on tour throughout the United States starting in August, but if Kevin’s children will come along from city to city remains to be seen.
But it does appear as though Alena and Valentina would be their dad’s number one fans from the audience if he allowed them to join him on different legs of the US-based tour.
