Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas get engaged weeks after NYS Fair date
“Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner is engaged to Joe Jonas of DNCE and The Jonas Brothers fame.
The celebrity couple announced their engagement on social media Sunday, revealing a photo of Turner’s engagement ring holding Jonas’ hand. “She said yes,” he wrote on Instagram. “I said yes,” she added, sharing the same picture.
“Yeah!!!!!!” Kevin Jonas, Joe’s older brother, exclaimed on social media.
Nick Jonas, who performed in the pop band The Jonas Brothers with Kevin and Joe, shared the photo of Turner’s engagement ring on Twitter to celebrate.
“Ahh! Congratulations to my brother… and sister in law to be on your engagement,” he tweeted. “I love you both so much.”
NYS Fair date
The announcement comes roughly six weeks after Turner, best known for playing Sansa Stark on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” was spotted at the 2017 New York State Fair in Syracuse last month. Before Jonas’ band DNCE, best known for the hit “Cake by the Ocean,” performed at Chevy Court, the couple was seen walking around the fairgrounds, occasionally posing for photos with fans, and reportedly got coffee at Cafe Kubal in downtown Syracuse.
Turner, 21, is also known for playing Jean Grey in 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” and the upcoming “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.” She’s reportedly been dating Jonas, 28, for about a year. They have yet to hit any red carpets together, but have been spotted out in public together several times.
They showed fans the relationship was serious this summer when they adopted a dog together. They brought Porky Basquiat, who already has his own Instagram account and over 62,000 followers, on the trip to Central New York in September.
