Nick Jonas has been given a new title: godfather to his 5-month-old niece, Valentina.

The proud uncle took to Snapchat Sunday to share a sweet photo of himself with the daughter of brother Kevin Jonas and Kevin's wife, Danielle.

“My beautiful niece on her dedication day," he wrote. "My sister-in-law's sister Katie and I are honored to be godparents.”

Jonas, 24, is only the latest star to be bestowed with the honor. Here are some of the other celebrities who have become godparents to the children of their famous family members and friends.

Taylor Swift

Swift announced that she was godmother to the second child of her pal Jaime King in 2015. She shared the happy news on Instagram, posting a photo of herself touching King's belly. "Guess who just got named Godmother of this little one..... (ME)," she captioned the sweet snap.

Dolly Parton


Parton has lovingly defended the antics of her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus. "I'll never say anything bad about Miley 'cause I know she's smart," Parton told the Associated Press. "And I know she's talented. And I know she's had to go to drastic measures to try to make her point: 'Leave me alone. I am not Hannah Montana anymore. I want to grow up.'"
