In a surprising turn of events, Joe Jonas, aged 34, has taken the step of retaining a divorce lawyer after four years of marriage to the talented Sophie Turner, aged 27. The couple, known for their unique wedding celebrations in Las Vegas and France, are also proud parents to two adorable daughters, 3-year-old Willa and their younger daughter, now 14 months old.
The news of this legal development was first reported by TMZ. Joe Jonas, a member of the famed Jonas Brothers, and Sophie Turner, renowned for her role in Game of Thrones, initially crossed paths through the virtual realm of Instagram direct messages back in 2016.
As Turner revealed in a cover interview for Harper’s Bazaar UK, “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.”
Their digital connection swiftly evolved into a real-world meeting when Jonas extended an invitation to hang out while his tour passed through the U.K. Initially, Turner’s friends had their reservations but convinced her to go along with the idea.
The rendezvous took place at a bar, and Turner, taking precautions, brought along her “rugby boys” for safety. To her pleasant surprise, instead of arriving with security, Joe Jonas showed up with a friend.
In 2017, Jonas made a romantic move by proposing to Turner, and the couple celebrated the engagement with matching Instagram posts. They shared a heartwarming photo of Turner’s hand adorned with the engagement ring, accompanied by Jonas’s caption, “She said yes,” and Turner’s own fitting response, “I said yes.”
Their engagement was met with an outpouring of support from their famous friends and family, including Jonas’s brother, Nick Jonas, who expressed his joy by saying, “Ahh! Congratulations to my brother… and sister-in-law to be on your engagement. I love you both so much.”
The couple’s love story culminated in not one but two wedding ceremonies, first with a surprise event in Las Vegas and later with a lavish celebration in the picturesque French countryside.
In 2020, they embraced parenthood with the birth of their first child, daughter Willa, followed by the arrival of their second child in July 2022. Joe Jonas, reflecting on fatherhood, shared, “It’s been amazing to be a dad and to learn every day more about myself and what that’s like.”
