Kevin Jonas' Comments On Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner's Engagement Will Make You 'Ship Them Even More
Another Jonas brother is due to be married, and the already-married, oldest brother Kevin Jonas couldn't be happier for his younger bro. It was only a month ago that fans learned singer Joe Jonas got engaged to actor Sophie Turner, who stars on HBO's mega-hit show Game of Thrones, and Kevin's recent comments on the couple seem to indicate that they are a perfect match.
Kevin talked to Us Weekly about his brother Joe and Turner's engagement on Friday, Dec. 1. Speaking of the bride-to-be, he said,
Joe and Turner announced announced the news that they'd become engaged on social media on Sunday, Oct. 15, with a photo Turner shared to Instagram of her engagement ring and a caption reading, "I said yes." Joe shared the same photo to social media with a coordinating message saying, "She said yes." Although the couple were first spotted together back in November 2016, the engagement announcement took fans by surprise, as Joe and Turner have kept their relationship relatively out of the public spotlight.
"Oh my God," Kevin told Us Weekly when asked about the engagement. "So happy for him." He also explained that no plans had been made yet for Joe's bachelor party. "There has been a lot of conversation about it," the singer and Married to Jonas star continued. "We don’t talk about it front of [Danielle] because I'm already going to get in trouble for going for more than two days," he joked, "so it's going to be a whole thing."
When news first broke of their plans to get married, fans of Joe and Turner collectively freaked out on Twitter — and for good reason. Not only is Turner wildly popular for her portrayal of Sansa Stark in GoT, but she's also known and loved by comic book and movie fans for her role in the X-Men films. Joe, on the other hand, is not only the lead singer of DNCE, but he also gives millennials everywhere feelings of nostalgia because of his teenage years as a Disney star and boy band member.
In addition to fans online, a number of the couple's famous friends and colleagues expressed congratulatory wishes to Joe and Turner after they became engaged. "Congratulations to my beautiful girlfriend on her engagement," Turner's GoT co-star and friend IRL Maisie Williams said in a caption posted to Insta. "This is just one of MANY life milestones we'll share. Love you both." Other stars like Demi Lovato shared public messages to the newly engaged couple as well.
Kevin's wife Danielle also expressed her excitement about Joe and Turner's engagement while speaking to Us Weekly in NYC. "I'm so excited I get to have another Jonas girl," she told the publication. Danielle and Kevin got married in 2009, according to People, and since Kevin is the only married JoBro so far, Danielle has been the only in-law in the family. That is, until Joe and Turner walk down the aisle.
It isn't yet known exactly when their wedding will take place, and both Joe and Turner have busy scheduling in the upcoming months. Joe's band is just about to wrap up their tour, and she may not necessarily have started filming the newest season of GoT yet, but production is scheduled to begin soon and continue until summer 2018, according to Entertainment Weekly.
So for now we'll just have to wait and see. One thing's for sure though, it seems like the couple's family and friends overwhelmingly approve of their union.
