But he forgives her. Heck, his daughter is only 6 weeks old. “You never quite realize how insane and special and crazy having a child is until it happens to you,” Mullins, 35, tells PEOPLE of the arrival of 7 lb. daughter Charlotte on Wednesday, Sept. 21. “But I wouldn’t miss it for the world.” Granted, Charlotte’s arrival wasn’t without its challenges. With Mullins’ wife Whitney having been deemed “high risk” due to her ongoing battle with a traumatic brain injury that occurred back in 2016, Charlotte’s birth was surrounded by caution. Jon competed on The Voice season 18 as a member of Team Nick Jonas. He left the competition at the Knockouts. His backstory involved his wife’s traumatic brain injury after she slipped, fell and hit her head. She needed month and months of physical therapy afterward. – Read more at People.
