Actress Sophie Turner, 21, and DNCE frontman Joe Jonas, 28, have gotten engaged. The two have been dating since 2016. Last month the couple adopted a Siberian husky together which was a good indication things were getting serious.
The couple confirmed their engagement in corresponding posts on social media. The two posted on Instagram the same image of them holding hands with a sizable teardrop-shaped diamond ring on Sophie’s finger. The message was a simple one for the two. She posted “I said yes, ” and he posted, “She said yes.”
The actress, who plays Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series has been married on the show, but this engagement and upcoming marriage is something she looks forward to unlike the horrible one in Game of Thrones.
One of the first to offer congratulations to the newly engaged couple was Joe’s brother Nick Jonas, who tweeted,“Congratulations to my brother… and sister in law to be on your engagement. I love you both so much.”
Although the two have been dating for awhile, this is the first time they’ve gone public about their relationship. The British superstar told Marie Claire that she hates being a Hollywood couple which opens their personal life up for public consumption.
“You do feel like you’re living in a fishbowl,” Turner shared with the magazine. “It’s frustrating [that] it’s the most mundane things that make the news — how boring!”
Turner’s real-life best friend and Game of Thrones co-star, Maisie Williams, has yet to send a message about the engagement but will likely soon enough. In an interview with W Magazine this summer, Turner gave details about her and Maisie’s close friendship.
“Maisie and I have the purest form of true, true friendship…She’s been my rock. We are kind of the only two people who know what it feels like to go through this very scenario from pretty much the same background, and ending up where we are and kind of finding ourselves as we go. I think that’s why people respond so well to our friendship, I guess. They see the true, pure love between us.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
