Sophie Turner was just as surprised by her engagement to Joe Jonas as we were. According to a source close to the couple, the Game of Thrones actress had no knowledge that her boyfriend had any intention to propose.
"Sophie was totally surprised," the insider told Us Weekly. Jonas and Turner have reportedly been dating for eleven months, and were first linked in November 2016 after they were spotted at a Kings of Leon concert in the Netherlands. Turner's shock, however, had nothing to do with the quick engagement. "They are madly in love. She's young but mature and comes from a small English town, so it's not that out of the ordinary and age doesn't create an issue," another source revealed.
Jonas may have upped the couple's timeline by proposing early, but the insider claims that the couple's wedding is still far off. "They are really good together and his friends and family love her and vice versa, but they aren't rushing to get married," they said. For now, the duo appears to be settling into as a newly-engaged pair, and their friends and family are certainly helping them celebrate! Turner's close friend and co-star Maisie Williams offered her congratulations on Instagram yesterday, shortly after the news broke. "Congratulations to my beautiful girlfriend on her engagement. This is just one of MANY life milestones we'll share. Love you both," she wrote.
The pair revealed their plans to marry over the weekend, with corresponding Instagram posts. "I said yes," Turner wrote, alongside a sweet photo of the pair's overlapped hands. The photo also showed off the actress's pear-cut engagement ring. Jonas followed up his wife-to-be's post with his own. "She said yes," he said, sharing the same image. Looks like the source's assessment of the happy couple's relationship is spot on: "They're madly in love," they said.
