While performing with the Jonas Brothers in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, the “Jealous” singer, 31, showed some love to a pair of especially enthusiastic fans — his wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and their daughter, Malti.
Fan-captured footage of the concert shared on TikTok shows the 20-month-old — clad in a tutu, crocs and a pair of large, noise-canceling headphones — watching her dad perform his throwback hit “When You Look Me in the Eyes” from the front row with mom Chopra Jonas, 41.
As Jonas performed the track on the Amway Center stage, he slowly approached Malti, who stood on the edge, propped up by her mom.
The singer reached out to her, held her hand and appeared to say something that made Chopra Jonas laugh. He then planted a kiss on the toddler’s forehead before resuming his performance.
Jonas also shared a family photo from behind-the-scenes of the Florida show on Instagram. In one photo, Malti and Jonas press their foreheads together and in another, Chopra Jonas holds little Malti as the tot pokes her dad in the face.
“Bring your family to work day,” he captioned the sweet snaps.
Before he kicked off his current tour in August, Jonas — along with brothers Joe and Kevin Jonas — chatted with PEOPLE about being a dad on the road.
“It’s just about being present in all the moments you can,” the new dad told PEOPLE of balancing fatherhood while taking the stage each night.
“For me in particular, I try to do the best I can to always be there when I can be, but it’s different for everybody,” he continued. “And we’ve been doing this for a long time, making music and being on the road. So it’s kind of a part of our DNA. It’s not foreign to anything.”
The “Close” singer also said that he was looking forward to having both Chopra Jonas and Malti join him on tour whenever possible.

“When my wife can, she’ll be there and then the opposite, Malti will be around but might be a little loud for her, might get a little late,” he said. “She’ll come for sound check or something. That’s probably it for another couple of months.”
In April, Jonas made good on his word, sharing a photo on Instagram of him and Malti at “her first soundcheck” ahead of a London Jo-Bros concert.

Jonas and Chopra Jonas welcomed Malti via surrogate on Jan. 15, 2022. She spent her first 100 days in the neonatal intensive care unit before making it home just in time for Mother’s Day.
When Malti was 6 months old, her musician dad spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his little girl — and being a first-time father.
While she did not have the easiest start to life, Jonas told the outlet that “all is good” with Malti now.
“It is certainly life-changing,” he said of being a father, adding that his baby girl is “amazing.”
“It brings me a lot of joy,” he added.
