Denise Jonas is a Good Housekeeping Mom

Denise Jonas is a Good Housekeeping Mom

The Jonas Brothers sing a tune to mom Denise Jonas in this cute shot from the July 2009 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

In the mag, Denise dishes on the boys’ good manners, abstinence and requirements of a daughter-in-law. Check it:

On Nick, Kevin and Joe wearing promise rings: “They are men. They have desires. They have testosterone. If they make a mistake, I’m not going to hate them. I don’t think they are above or below being seduced. I would be foolish if I thought that. I pray for them.”

On the boys’ etiquette: “To me, there’s nothing more frustrating than being around a child who’s annoying. We taught our kids proper manners. Because they’re going to be adults a lot longer than they’re children.”

On the number one requirement for a daughter-in-law: “She must sincerely and totally love my son!”"

  • Lauren

    awww i love it when mums are just mums…they don’t try to be like their kids best friend and it overlaps being a parent; like mine are my bestfriend but they know when to behave like a parent, unlike, say, lindsay lohan’s mum…

    theres seems totally cool…an the guys deserve a great parent

    <3 The Jonas Fam!

  • Olivia

    That photoshoot is looks really good and Denise is so pretty! Is it just me or do khaki pants make them look bigger? Maybe it’s just the angle or something, i don’t know. I’m gonna buy the magazine though!

  • Alwaysanna

    Aww, that’s So Cute!!!

    I love how down-to-earth Mrs. Jonas seems..b/c some celeb ‘rents can really let all the fame&fortune of their children mess with their heads and let it really change them..even though they’re not the one’s with it.

    With Mrs. Jonas you get the sense that she’s supporting her boys the same way she would..even before the fame…

    “To thine own self be true” ;)

    You Rock, Mrs. Jonas!!!

    * Lovin’ the shoes by the way, Mrs. J!!! Too Cute :)


  • Kenzie

    Denise <3
    She’s a sweethart. I love her to death! :D

  • lily

    this is precious…beyond :)

  • lol

    wow I guess the girls better be careful because if they are the one who is intimate with one of these guys it will obviously be ALL the girl’s fault

    “They are men. They have desires,” she confesses, even though each of her boys wears a chastity ring. “They have testosterone. If they make a mistake, I’m not going to hate them. I don’t think they are above or below being seduced. I would be foolish if I thought that. I pray for them.”

    Apparently they ONLY way these angels can be human & “make a mistake” is IF the girl SEDUCES one of them. I quess ONLY the girls have to have self control – not these angel boys.

    WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • amanda

    she’s such a sweetheart!u can see she’s a sincere and honest person!

  • adrienne

    Your right Savannah! lol Nick does look bigger than everyone in that picture at the top! haha!
    and i LOVE Denise, shes like the best mom ever!! but my moms still #1 =] lol

  • Ms A/i love nick j

    awww there’s so sweet I love ‘em ! cannot WAIT for their new ALBUM and their CONCERTTT!!!! lol :D Love you Jonas !

  • Sarah Jonas

    wow um.. their not angels their human! And having sex isn’t the only mistake in life. And it doesnt matter if the girl seduces them because they agreed to do it, so it actually would be both of their faults. I hate when people think they are absolutely perfect. They try to be the best they can be but, come on seriously?

    I LOVE them though, and I adore their mom! DENISE JONAS FAN!

  • Karina

    So pretty !

    Joee , is perfect !!

    Love him to deathh, really, really, really !!

  • lol

    @Sarah Jonas:

    I don’t mean to imply that they are angels only saying that apparently the only one who would be responsible if they did “make a mistake” would be the girl – That is what their mother said by saying ” I don’t think they are above or below being seduced.”

    I wonder what the mother of the girl in a situation like that with one of them would say.

  • tara


    Their mom is adorbale! LOL :) i wanna be that daughter in law :D she seems like such a nice mom and i love her boys to death :) <3 nick :)
    I think they are adorable and so amazing :) :)
    I so cant wait for their concert and the album!
    :) :) :) :D :D XD
    :-* Nick
    The boys arent perfect! thats what i love about them! They can make mistakes and i will always love them. Yes, they are men and they have desires, and yea..if they go and do somethign wrong..what will; happen? it will be big news on the front cover of EVERYmagazine for the next month or 2, they’ll lose all their 5 year old fans, BUT EVERYONE WILL MOVE ON! dont u get it? Does anyone really care that Britney Spears shaved her head?? NO! see…ppl move on!


  • Yvonne

  • Kassie

    I’m sincerely and totally in love with Nick Jonas!!!

  • cougartrak

    The picture is crooked, putting Nick above the rest and so making him look bigger. Notice how crooked the microphone stand is. It’s weird they presented it this way.




  • Vanessa

    i totally think their mom just spilled the beans….. im pretty sure either joe or kevin lost theirs already…. idk but i think so…. thank u denise! :(

  • Gracie

    I love their whole family! Nick’s my favorite JB, though.

  • Jonas 09

    I’m glad their Mom Believe’s in them and if they make a Mistake, she will still Love them. And anyway how could you not Love the Jonas Brothers and their Family, they are AMAZING!!!
    We will Always Love You, no matter what Happens …
    Loads of Love from Me to You … xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  • Lauren

    Each Jonas Brother even Joe is still wearing their purity ring and they will till marrige trust me

  • Jazmin Carrasco

    I think the Jonas family ir a real example of what a family should be, Mrs. Jonas is a very good mum, and a strong woman too who works really hard to make her sons’ dream come true. I’ve heard so many rude comments about the Jonas Brothers band and all the merch around them…But Hey!!! They work so hard, that they deserve all the money they have. Also they do so much for the fans, web chats, videos every week, meetings, etc…Does anybody know a band that is closer or more real than the Jonas Bros? And THAT spirit of sharing, of giving back something is the result of a mother like Denise Jonas…So my congratulations to this incredible lady.
    With all my love
    Jazmin from Chile
    ps: The Chilean concert was awesome!!! I’m missing you already!!!

  • Lauren

    @ Jazmin Carrasco

    I agree with u

  • melissa

    i like how it changes from “they won’t do it at all because they made a vow to GOD and themselves (and you don’t mess with God;) to “well, they might make a mistake” she’s probably only saying this because she knows one of them did it already.

    my money is on Joe

  • melissa

    @Vanessa: readin between the lines, huh? i agree with ya
