Watch: Jonas Brothers Reflect on Journey to Hollywood Walk of Fame

Nick Jonas will forever be his daughter's biggest fan.

The "Chains" singer recently shared his hopes for his father-daughter relationship with Malti, his 12-month-old who he shares with wife Priyanka Chopra. The sweet words came as Nick and his brothers Joe and Kevin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for their band the Jonas Brothers—where Nick mentioned during his speech he "can't wait to come back here in 15 years" and "embarrass" Malti in front of her friends.

"I will probably be embarrassing her all the time. I'll be like, 'I'm cool, I promise. I'm on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,'" Nick exclusively told E! News' Chief Correspondent Keltie Knight on Jan. 30. "I'm looking forward to that." (For more from the Jonas Brothers, tune in to E! News tonight at 11 p.m.)

It would be a full circle moment for Nick, who is thankful to have his loved ones close for his event, where Malti made her public debut one year after being born.

Joe couldn't agree more, telling Keltie what the star means for his family—which includes wife Sophie Turner, daughter Willa, 2, and another baby girl—and fans.

"This is the only award we get to share something with our fans, everything else is on a shelf," he said. "This is one we can see photos online of fans visiting this and our children's children. It's a special experience."

As Kevin put it, "I was just standing up at that podium and was like, 'This is a very intense moment.' It was special to have family here."

Priyanka—who donned an elegant brown dress for the outing—celebrated Nick's accomplishment on Instagram, including a snippet from her husband's speech where he says, "you are the calm in the crazy, the rock in the storm and I love being married to you."

"So proud of you my love!" she captioned the post. "Congratulations @jonasbrothers."
