Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have announced their engagement on Instagram
Celebrity couples really are something special, right? On the one hand, if you've had a crush on someone famous and talented, a popular musician or renowned actor for example, it can be pretty devastating to see the object of your affections with someone else: especially if the other party is every bit as wealthy, respected, and talented as they are. I guess that's the price you pay when you fall for someone way out of your league. I mean, come on guys: what are the chances that Harry Styles is ever going to end up with someone ordinary like you or me?
But on the other hand, there's something inherently appealing about celebrity matches. They're just so cute together. I guess that, in lieu of the days of royal families marrying into one another, celebrities are the closest we'll get to the fairytale romance in the modern day. Of course, we all know that every fairytale romance has to have a happy ending. Can you guys hear wedding bells?
One celebrity couple that you might not be aware of is Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas. It seems like an unlikely pairing: the Stark sister of HBO's hit dark fantasy series Game of Thrones, and one third of the fraternal musical trio the Jonas Brothers.
For the most part, the two of them have kept their wooing pretty private, and have only been photographed together a few times in the past. But they've actually been dating since November 2016! They were first spotted by paparazzi at a pre-MTV Europe Music Awards Kings Of Leon concert at the Oude Luxor Theater in Rotterdam, in Netherlands, and it was then that the press first got wind of their burgeoning intimacy.
But in a move that will probably surprise quite a few of their fans, Turner has shockingly announced that she is now engaged to Jonas! Let's just hope that the wedding is better than the two that Sansa Stark has had to suffer through!
In an emotional Instagram post, Turner shared an image of her own hand holding that of her fiancé's, bearing a gorgeous diamond engagement ring on her ring finger. The picture was simply captioned "I said yes." Doesn't that just tug at your heartstrings?
The other two Jonas Brothers were also quick to congratulate their brother. On Twitter Nick Jonas stated "Ahh! Congratulations to my brother ... and sister in law to be on your engagement. I love you both so much," while Kevin also stated "Congrats @joejonas and @sophiet so happy to welcome you into the family! [sic]"
Turner has always shied away from being too candid about her personal life, and has admitted in the past that she finds the limelight irritating. In a recent interview about her love life she stated, "You do feel like you're living in a fishbowl. It's frustrating [that] it's the most mundane things that make the news - how boring!" I have a feeling that she might be in the public eye even more now though. Ah well. We wish the two of them happiness together. Don't mind me, I think i've got something in my eye, sniff sniff.
