When Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas met through mutual friends in 2016, they kept most of their relationship out of the private eye. But things started to change after Joe put a ring on it just one year after getting together! From their adorable Manhattan strolls to their crazy epic Vegas wedding, here is everything you need to know about the Queen of the North and her boy band beau.
- Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas began dating in 2016, after being introduced by mutual friends. In 2017, Joe proposed to Sophie with a $150,000 diamond ring.
- The couple tied the knot during a surprise Las Vegas ceremony after the 2019 Billboard Music Awards—and thanks to Instagram live, fans saw the whole thing!
- They hosted a more formal wedding celebration in France a few months later and took not one, but two envy-inducing honeymoons.
- In July 2020, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Willa!

September 2, 2017: Puppy Parents
After almost one year of dating, the pair took a serious step together—they adopted a puppy! Sophie shared a sweet shot of the siberian husky on Instagram, writing, “Meet the newest addition to the krew.” They named him Porky Basquiat Jonas and even created an Instagram account for the pup! If handling a joint Instagram account for your dog isn’t love then we don’t know what is.
October 15, 2017: She Said Yes!
While we're not sure exactly how the proposal went down, we do know Sophie was caught off-guard.

In 2018, Joe redefined the whole "couple's costume" concept by instead dressing up as his fiancèe for Halloween. Complete with a red wig and turquoise velvet dress, Joe killed the costume game with his take on Sophie's Game of Thrones character Sansa Stark. Instead of returning the favor and dressing up as Joe for the holiday, she chose a cuddly elephant costume. Honestly, we never thought the Queen of the North and an elephant would look so good together!

The night before, the couple hosted a rehearsal dinner where guests were asked to wear white while they wore red.
