Sophie Turner Shows Off Sparkly Wedding Band While Praising Alex Morgan's Tea-Sipping Celebration
Sophie Turner showed off her new wedding band while responding to Alex Morgan's tea-sipping celebration homage to her
Sophie Turner revealed her sparkly new wedding band in a video praising U.S. soccer player Alex Morgan.
The Game of Thrones star, 23, is on her honeymoon after marrying husband Joe Jonas, 29, in an intimate wedding in France last weekend, but that doesn’t mean she’s not keeping up with the current news.
A fresh-faced Turner, whose hometown is Northampton, U.K., posted a video on her Instagram Story Friday congratulating Morgan on the U.S. Women’s National Team’s semifinal win over England, and especially praised the athlete’s celebration.
In the video, which is mostly about Morgan and the win, Turner revealed her new wedding band, which appears to be diamond encrusted all the way around
The new band sits below her stunning and unique engagement ring, which features a large pear-shaped stone sitting on two other diamond-encrusted bands.
Turner and Jonas got engaged in October 2017 and later got officially married at a chapel in Vegas in May before tying the knot in front of family and friends in Provance, France, on June 29.
The two set off on their honeymoon after the nuptials.
Soccer star Morgan drew some criticism when she pretended to sip a cup of tea after her game-winning goal, but she told the media on Friday that it was an unfair double-standard as male athletes aren’t as criticized for their celebrations.
Morgan also revealed that the celebration was an homage to Turner, who often ends her Instagram Stories by saying “and that’s the tea.”

“Okay, I’m on my honeymoon, I’m not really looking at my phone much but I feel like this deserves a mention,” Turner said on her story Friday. “Unfortunately, the U.K. women’s football team lost at the World Cup, and of course I’m incredibly sad and incredibly proud of that team. But I am so honored that we lost to such an incredible team, the U.S. women’s football team.”
She continued, “Alex Morgan, all those haters that are saying [the tea sip] was disrespectful, I’m honored that you thought of me. All those people that are hating on you are probably sitting at home, millennials drinking kombucha. And I’m really f—— proud of you, Alex Morgan, congratulations on your win.”
“And that’s the m——f—— tea,” Turner says before taking a deep sip of her glass of red wine.
Turner, 23, walked down the aisle in France on June 29 wearing a custom bridal dress in flower-embroidered tulle and silk Gazar that was designed by Nicolas Ghesquière, who is Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections.
Seventy-five hours of craftsmanship by more than 10 embroiderers were needed to create the pattern of over 650,000 stitches on the bride’s 14 meters of embroidered tulle using floral patterned thread.
Each panel of Turner’s dress was embroidered with 50,400 crystal eclats and 50,400 white beads. And her veil required 48 hours of embroidery as the thread was hand-cut between each flower and the hem was hand-cut to create a natural and irregular finishing to match the sleeves.
The Turner’s gown, which took over 350 hours to assemble, also featured shoulder details and draped belt in optical white leather satin.
