Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas: A timeline of their relationship
28 September 2020, 13:04
Where did they meet and when did they briefly break up? We look back at every totally adorable moment from the Game Of Thrones star and the Jonas brother.
Following their whirlwind romance and surprise Vegas wedding in 2019, the pair have quickly become a household name in the world of power-couples, and have already given us some seriously adorable moments in their four years together.
Let's take a look back - right from the beginning...
Turner and Jonas started talking on Instagram in 2016 after the singer slid into her DMs.
Like all good relationships start, the famed Jonas Brother (praise be for the reunion) slid into Sophie's DMs with what we can only imagine was a cheesy pick-up line (unconfirmed, just an educated guess).
The 23-year-old told Harpers Bazaar during her March 2019 interview: "We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time. We were following each other on Instagram and he direct messaged me one fine day, out of the blue."
The pair then rushed to meet up in secret in London - and the rest? History. And a Vegas wedding.
Spotted! The pair are seen at friend's Halloween party.
Ok, we know. This doesn't mean they're dating. But the then-secret couple had their first public sighting as rumours began to fly at a friends Halloween party, where they were dressed as a Dalmatian and a rabbit. Peep them at the back looking all cute.
The 'are-they-or-aren't-they?' couple keep popping up on dates.
Ah, paparazzi. Love them or hate them, they can be a great way of seeing if there's really something going on between your faves. And from being spotted at Los Angeles clubs or dining out at swanky New York City restaurants, this was just the beginning for the stans.
They were even spotted together at a Kings Of Leon concert in the Netherlands where onlookers say they were kissing and cuddling throughout the show.
The first Instagram-official photo is shared.
Hallelujah! After months of speculation, Sophie pretty much confirms the news with a sweet snap of Joe on Instagram captioned "Miami daze." While this isn't an official "YES WE ARE DATING" - this is certainly an indication of them sharing more time together.
...That doesn't mean they were going to admit it, though!
After the long-awaited picture hit our feeds, Sophie was quickly confronted about their relationship status at the 2017 Golden Globes, where she simply replied: "I'm not saying anything, I'm very happy." Oh you tease.
But we can count on Nick Jonas to let us in on the secret.
What kind of sibling would you be if you didn't go out of your way to embarrass your brother? We admit this one was probably planned, but Nick Jonas may finally have answered the question on everyone's lips in May 2017, after he posted a photo of Sophie and then-27-year-old Joe at the Met Gala, captioned "these two ❤️"
While they didn't walk the red carpet together, they were spotted holding hands as they headed to Katy Perry's after party.
The GoT star finally opens up about their relationship in an interview.
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine in July 2017, Sophie finally speaks out about her relationship, and says the couple have met each other's parents and been on family trips - which involved Joe visiting a London pub with her family, and Sophie going on a ski trip with the Jonas'.
Despite their seemingly perfect fairytale, Sophie admits: "You do feel like you're living in a fishbowl...it's frustrating that it's the most mundane things that make the news - how boring! There are really no other headlines?"
In the ultimate non-Valentine's Day gesture ever, Joe surprises Sophie with a puppy - an Alaskan Klee Kai named Porky Basquiat, whose brother, Waldo Picasso they would later adopt into their dog-filled lives. The pups came complete with Instagram followings of 140K, obviously. What kind of celebrity dogs would they be if they didn't?
First comes love, second comes a dog, third comes...a ring?
Arguably one of the biggest pop culture moments of 2017, Sophie and Joe announced their engagement on Instagram with a picture of her diamond ring (complete with matching eternity band), simply captioned "She said yes." And the internet went wild.
Despite Sophie being only 21 at the time, this was a natural move for the pair (and their family of dogs), and they later hosted an engagement party packed with celebrities including Ansel Elgort, Nick and Kevin Jonas. #Jophie forever.
The couple reveal matching Toy Story tattoos.
Both tattoo fans, the pair slipped in celebrity artist, Mr K's studio in October 2018 to debut their first matching inkings - a nod to the iconic Buzz Lightyear line "to infinity and beyond" from Toy Story.
This isn't the first time the couple have hit the needle together as they visited the same parlour in July to get tributes to their grandparents, but this is the most romantic addition to their bodies by far.
The Jonas family spend Christmas 2018 in Warwick.
The entire Jonas family spent Christmas in Warwick! Yep, with their wedding impending, the Turners invited over their in-laws for a festive feasts, including newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra - and shared an adorable snap on social media.
Following the celebration, Turner and Jonas took a ski trip to Verbier, Switzerland with Nick and Priyanka.
The Jonas Brothers get the Jonas wives (and fiancées) involved in their music video.
Jonas Brothers - Sucker
Casually laced with over $200million of artwork, the Jonas Brothers launched their comeback in Hatfield House just outside of Central London for their music video "Sucker". Now they're all grown up (we miss those Camp Rock days), they took the chance to show off their new partners, and invited them all to be in the medieval banquet music video, where Sophie, Priyanka and Danielle Jonas got dressed up and were frankly, the stars. No offence, guys.
Sophie admits that her relationship with Joe helped her overcome depression.
Sophie has made no secret that her love with Joe helped her to overcome troubles in her life, but most notably on a podcast with Dr Phil (Phil in the Blanks), the X Men: Dark Phoenix star admitted:
"I don't think I love myself at all, but I'm now with someone that makes me realize that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose.
"When someone tells you they love you every day, it makes you really think about why that is and I think it makes you love yourself a bit more. So yeah, I love myself." She added: "I feel safe around him. I won't be judged by him. He's seen the worst."
The couple tie the knot in a surprise Las Vegas wedding.

In wedding number one, the couple shocked the world in May 2019 by rushing straight from the Billboard Music Awards to the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas to get married, surrounded by celebrities, when the news was broken by artist Diplo, who live-streamed the entire thing on Instagram Stories.
Officiated by an Elvis impersonator, the wedding was reportedly planned a week in advance, and the summer wedding they had planned in France was still set to go ahead.
Out of the public eye, they briefly broke up.
Yep, believe it or not, being a power-couple doesn't come without its turbulence, and they actually broke up the day before their Las Vegas marriage. During an interview with The Times, Sophie said "It was the worst day of our lives...for a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, 'Never mind.'" We said it was brief!
They finally have their official wedding in France in June 2019.
Wedding bells! Following their Vegas elope, Sophie and Joe tie the knot in their planned wedding in France (you can even rent the venue for yourself on Air BnB), surrounded by friends, family and of course, Maisie Williams stepped up as Maid of Honour. Goals.
While they've remained tight-lipped about the intimate details Sophie wore a custom Louis Vuitton dress, while Joe admitted that France as the destination seemed like "mutual ground" for the pair, as they've spent so much time there together - oh, and it's one of the most romantic places in the world. Congrats!
Baby Jonas is coming!
While the couple never made an official announcement, from paparazzi shots it's very clearly that Sophie is pregnant, making regular outings embracing her blossoming bump in comfy clothing.
Rumours began circulating on gossip sites back in February about the potential new arrival, with sources close to the couple emphasising their excitement at starting a family.
“The couple is keeping things very hush-hush but their friends and family are super excited for them,” Just Jared's source said at the time. A second insider added, “Sophie has decidedly been choosing outfits to wear on and off the carpet to accommodate her changing body.”
Joe has also been keeping totally tight-lipped in interviews, and hasn't commented on the news.
Sophie and Joe welcome a baby girl named Willa - and her name has a Game Of Thrones connection
A representative for the couple has confirmed that Sophie gave birth to a baby girl last Wednesday in Los Angeles - which they have named Willa.
However, given Sophie's previous role in Game Of Thrones, fans will notice that the name, despite being adorable, has a very special connection to the show.
Willa is the name of two minor characters from the show which lasted 8 seasons. One of the characters named Willa appeared on two episodes of the show back in season five and was a wildling character. The second appearance of Willa in the series is in season eight, when she appears as a servant at Winterfell.
We're still waiting for the Instagram official picture of the newborn to drop, but the couples rep spoke to People regarding the news: “The couple is already obsessed and can’t stop gloating about their new addition. The couple is taking time to enjoy this special moment and have only shared the news and updates with family and friends. With the pandemic Joe and Sophie have been very cautious about who is around them and their little girl.”
Sophie Turner finally drops pregnancy photos taken by Joe on Instagram
We're still yet to catch a glimpse of baby Jonas, but despite being quiet for her entire pregnancy, Sophie has finally posted at-home photos taken by Joe to Instagram during the time.
She simply captioned the photos with emojis, as she relaxed in the pool with her dog with her full bump on display, and we even got the most swoon-worthy snap of Joe clutching her stomach.
