Babies are considered one of life's little miracles. Despite what you see on Facebook and in the news, however, not everyone connects with their children instantly, says pop star Kevin Jonas, who was named one of People magazine's Sexiest Men Alive in 2008.
In 2014, Kevin and his wife, Danielle Deleasa, welcomed Alena Rosa Jonas into the world (and they recently announced they have a second child on the way). Kevin, sitting next to Danielle, reveals to Oprah: Where Are They Now? that he didn't connect as a father right away—and that's okay.
"No one ever talked to me about it [...] You see every picture of a dad sleeping on the couch with the baby on them and all this stuff. I didn't find my place right away," Kevin admits. "Like I knew baby girl needed mom and that was great. I kind of dove into work because I was not fully finding my place yet, and I think that a lot of guys don't realize how much of an effect it has, and now I'm in such a good place with her that it's just so amazing."
He hopes other fathers keep this fact in mind and don't beat themselves up. Instead, cherish the small moments. "There's a shock and awe factor for sure. But just remember to take every day because you're not going to get that day back."
