Jonas Brothers Update: Diabetes Has Not Slowed Down 15-Year-Old Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas recently celebrated his 15th birthday

When we ran the story “Type 1 Pop Star Nick Jonas Tells His Story” on our website in April 2007, we didn’t expect it to generate the hundreds of responses that it has since then. The story continues to receive new comments every week.

Nick and his brothers Kevin and Joe just signed a deal with the Disney Channel to star as themselves in a reality program tentatively titled “Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream.” The show will follow the trio around on their current “Look Me in the Eyes” tour, covering their lives on and off the stage.

In late March, the boys visited the White House to give an assist at the annual Easter Egg Roll. The hunt, a tradition since 1878, draws children from all over the country to roam the White House’s South Lawn seeking colorful hidden wooden eggs.

While there, the brothers met President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush. The President not only complimented Joe Jonas’s shoes but also revealed that he’s a fan of the teen trio.

Later, when asked if being invited to the White House would go to the Jonas Brothers’ heads, Joe pointed out that the three siblings are still expected to do routine chores on their tour bus.

In June, Disney will air “Camp Rock,” a TV movie featuring the brothers. On July 4, the Jonases will kick off their summer “Burning Up” tour in Toronto.
