We are SO ready for this Jonas Brother to be the DILF he was destined to be! Nick Jonas may not have officially confirmed his engagement to Priyanka Chopra yet (he did say “thanks, man” when congratulated on it, though, if that counts), but he did reveal that he's ready for the next chapter in his life… babies! The “Jealous” singer, who's currently launching his new fragrance collaboration JVxN, told Cosmopolitan that his “goal” is to become a dad.

While kids don’t seem to be on the table right at this very moment, we could have a bunch of little Jonas babies running around a lot sooner than we think. “[Having a family of my own] is the goal,” he told the magazine. “It’s definitely something that I hope will happen.”

“I am not sure of the exact timeline. But, I need to give my nieces cousins at some point,” he continued, referring to his older brother Kevin Jonas‘s two daughters, Valentina and Alena. “The best part about being an uncle is that it’s like training wheels,” Nick explained. “You get to spend time with these young people and have some responsibility, which is nice.”

If you follow Nick on Instagram, then you know that he's absolutely smitten with them. He often posts the cutest photos with his little nieces alongside the sweetest messages.

My everything. ❤️ I hope you’re all having an amazing Christmas.

Nick's fragrance partner John Varvatos thinks his friend will be a great dad, too. “He is great with kids,” he said. “He’s like a magnet to them. They latch right on. It’s amazing. He’s great.”

It's a good thing Nick is getting practice with his nieces because his fiancée has said in the past that children are something she wants in her future. In fact, the Quantico actress wants LOTS of them. “Marriage and kids are a big goal for me. I'm a big believer in the institution of marriage and in the family, and in kids, I want to have a lot of them,” Priyanka told India Today in February.

She also reiterated her desire to have a lot of babies in an interview Marie Claire. “As many as I can. I love kids. Love, love kids. I prefer their company to the company of adults, actually,” she joked.

Then in June, Priyanka told People that even though she's a “live in the next two months” type of person, she can see herself starting a family soon. “In 10 years, I definitely want to have kids. That is, it’s going to happen in the next 10 years. Well, hopefully, earlier than that,” she admitted. “I’m very fond of children and I want to be able to do that.”

You hear that, Nick? Priyanka is VERY ready to start a family, too!
