Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and her husband, musician Joe Jonas, have become parents to their first child together. According to reports, Turner gave birth to the baby girl last Wednesday at a hospital in Los Angeles.
The report suggests that it’s a girl and they have named her Willa. The couple announced the birth on Monday.
“Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are delighted to announce the birth of their baby,” they said in a statement released through his label Republic Records. They were quiet about the pregnancy and gave no further details about the baby.
Jonas, 30, and Turner, 24 got married in Las Vegas in May 2019, having a second bigger ceremony in France later in the year. News of Turner’s pregnancy broke in February.
Sophie and Joe were spotted out and about in Los Angeles earlier this month while taking a walk with their dogs and former’s parents. According to People Magazine, the 25-year-old cradled her baby bump in photographs from the outing. Both the stars were seen wearing masks as they enjoyed the sunshine together as a family.
In a recent interview on SiriusXM, Jonas opened up about how the couple has been laying low over the last few months amid Covid-19. “We’re having a good time,” the singer said. “We got married last year, so we’re still enjoying that time.”
However, the pair did step out to show their support at a ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest, a source previously told People magazine that “they’re being cautious because of Sophie’s pregnancy”.
Turner, the England-born actor who played Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones for eight seasons, and Jonas, began dating in 2016. The Arizona-born musician became popular in a band with his brothers on the Disney Channel.
