How Nick Jonas’ Brothers Joe & Kevin Are Helping Him Ease Into Fatherhood

Nick Jonas’s brothers both had similar advice for him leading up to the birth of his newborn baby girl.

Nick Jonas, 29, and his wife Priyanka Chopra, 39, announced on Jan. 21 that they are parents to a newborn baby. In a statement posted on Nick’s Instagram, the couple wrote, “We are overjoyed to announce that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate.” As fans left their well-wishes in the comments section of the post, which now has almost 1.4 million likes, Nick’s two brothers – Kevin 34, and Joe Jonas, 32 – commented with matching heart emojis. A source close to Nick told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that it was not news to his brothers, as they have been helping Nick prepare for the baby for quite some time!

So what was their best advice? “The one thing that Kevin and Joe both told Nick was to catch up on as much sleep as possible because, when the baby arrived, he won’t be getting a full night’s sleep for a very, very, long time,” our source said. Kevin, who has two daughtersValentina, 6, and Alena, 5 – with wife Danielle, 35, “is a pro at being a father because he has done it for so long. He had a ton of advice to give Nick, such as when to feed the baby, what to feed the baby, what baby products to buy and what to do to keep their baby safe,” the insider revealed.

Joe, who is the father to 1-year-old baby, Willa, with actress wife, Sophie Turner, 25, had his own advice for Nick. “Joe, on the other hand, is kind of new to the game. He is still learning, and his advice was more to just go with your instincts and develop your own style,” the insider added. “Nick’s family has been such a huge support system for him through all of this. His brother’s both have children and now Nick feels like he is part of their club”.

For the past several months, Nick and Priyanka faces breakup rumors, but a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that nothing could have been further from the truth. “For the past several months while everyone was speculating that they were breaking up, they were actually preparing to become parents for the first time,” the insider said. “Priyanka has been wanting to be a mother for so long and she knows that Nick is going to be the best father ever. Both of their families are overjoyed right now and because of the pandemic, it’s giving them their space to just be together as a family and be with their little bundle of joy.”

Street Photography by Juri Nesterov Documents Ukrainian Life Across Decades

Kyiv. 2020. All images shared with permission.

Photography, and street photography, in particular, has the power to preserve the fleeting, framing the brief encounters and dalliances that sometimes end as quickly as they began. This impulse to document the momentary permeates throughout Juri Nesterov‘s body of work that serves as a visual record of those he’s witnessed within the last five decades. “When I look into the camera’s viewfinder, something inexplicable happens: thousands of images appear in my memory,” he writes.

Nesterov was born in 1954 in Krasnyi Luch, a city in the Luhansk province of what is now Ukraine. At the time, the area was part of Soviet Russia, and this shift in borders parallels the photographer’s practice, which often centers on the transient and ephemeral nature of the human experience.

Because of revolution, war, and collapse, Nesterov’s photos also chronicle life under the control of governments that have since dissolved, and the context of being surrounded by such inability makes his focus on the fundamental humanity of his subjects even more impactful. He says:

After a while, looking at my prints, I feel like the photos are electric. Most of the time I hear the question: “Where was this picture taken” or “What kind of camera? What lens?” I really want to answer: “in the world of people with their thoughts, disappointments, and hopes.”…Does it matter where exactly I pressed the camera button?… Look at the world, we all have the same starry sky.

Nesterov worked in journalism for many years and has exhibited his photos throughout Europe, although some of his prints housed at a Ukrainian museum were destroyed during shelling a few years back. Head to Flickr to explore an incredible archive of his photos that until recently, he was still developing in his kitchen in Kyiv.

Kourtney Kardashian Says She Got Therapy After She ‘Couldn’t Stop Crying’ Following Scott Disick Split

Kourtney Kardashian revealed therapy has made her ‘really sensitive’ and helped her deal with an ‘abundance of feelings.’

Kourtney Kardashian, 42, revealed she’s been on a “therapy journey” since 2017 — which would have began shortly after her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, 39. “I would just start crying all the time,” she said in Bustle magazine’s March 3 issue of what made her seek mental health support. “‘I just have feelings; like, an abundance of them,” she added, noting that working with a therapist has made her more “sensitive.”

The Poosh founder and former beau Scott began their rocky romance back in 2007, and welcomed three kids together: Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6. Shortly after the birth of Reign, and amid Scott’s on-going struggles with drugs and alcohol, the pair called things quits. Over the years, Scott has maintained a close relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner clan — particularly with Kourtney’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner. Kourtney has admitted that Scott continuing to be included by her family members on vacations and holidays made moving on from the relationship more difficult.

After engaging in therapy, she says she experienced “growth” that helped her move forward. “I see the growth that comes from those unhappy places which make it all worth it. I’m like, ‘If we didn’t go through these roller coasters, you wouldn’t get to the good part,’” she added.

Kourt is now in a much happier place in her life: the reality star began a romance with fiancé Travis Barker, 46, in early 2021 that lead to a proposal just 10 months later. This marks Kourtney’s first time being engaged, and the pair — affectionately named “Kravis” — seem happier than her. After her split from Scott, the 42-year-old also dated model Younes Bendjima on-and-off.

The health guru has previously opened about therapy, revealing she has a “double session” weekly to Health magazine. “I look forward to it every week! Having that awareness, I find that I can almost catch things before they become a bigger deal,” she said. “When those harder moments do happen, I think, ‘What’s the lesson that I’m supposed to be learning?’” she pondered.
