Nick confessed on 'The Ellen Show' that raising Gino has been nothing short of chaotic.

“He’s huge now. He’s about double that size. His name is Gino," Nick told Ellen Degeneres. “He’s ripping up everything that comes in his path. He’s using the bathroom wherever he pleases.”

"Don’t you have a trainer? You can’t let him do that!” Degeneres exclaimed.

“We do, but when he’s that cute, you kind of just let him do what he does,” Jonas admitted in response.

“No!” Degeneres playfully yelled.


Nick was not expecting to get a puppy. Priyanka completely surprised him when she entered their bedroom with a new puppy.

“Pri came home with the absolute best surprise this morning. Please meet our new pup @ginothegerman I haven’t stopped smiling since I woke up this morning and finally realized what was going on. Thank you @priyankachopra,” Nick wrote as a caption on the video he posted. Despite the surprise factor, Nick seemed ecstatic about the gift and loves his little troublemaker.

Dog raising has prepared Priyanka Copra for becoming a parent.

“For me home is wherever I’m happy, as long as I have the people I love around me. I have homes in Mumbai and New York, which are very vertical cities. LA is more horizontal. Buying a home and having a baby are on my to-do list," Priyanka told Vogue India. “The space I’m in today is the most content I’ve been in a very long time, and I’m not scared to admit it. I don’t want to be stuck running on a hamster wheel.”
