Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's Relationship Timeline
The Game of Thrones actress and Jonas Brothers musician first connected through Instagram DMs. While Turner didn't expect to like Jonas at first, they fell hard for each other after one evening at a British pub — and they've been inseparable ever since.
A year later, Jonas popped the question, and in 2019, the couple tied the knot twice: first in a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas and later at a lavish affair in the French countryside. According to Turner, getting married only changed their relationship for the better.
"I feel as though the only thing that's changed for me is having this incredible sense of security. Just the word 'husband' and the word 'wife': they solidify the relationship. I love being married. I think it's wonderful. I'm sure we'll have our hiccups, but right now the security and the safety are everything," she told Elle.
In 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Willa, and now have their second baby on the way. Since becoming parents, the often private couple has given fans a few glimpses into their sweet family life.
From their Instagram connection to their Vegas nuptials, here's everything you need to know about Jonas and Turner's relationship.

"He didn't bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn't contrived. It wasn't small talk — it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable. I went on tour with him," Turner shared.
