Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas welcome the new addition to their family, Willa.
After months of keeping their pregnancy private, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have now welcomed their daughter, Willa. Reports said that they are “delighted” after welcoming the new addition to their family.
TMZ first broke the news on Monday. As noted, though, the actress gave birth last Wednesday at a hospital in Los Angeles. During that time, details had remained scarce about the pregnancy and the baby’s birth. But, recent headlines revealed a few details about the matter.
“Willa” is reportedly an inspiration from Game of Thrones
Following the news on Monday, sources reportedly revealed the name of their daughter. Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas named their daughter, “Willa,” according to the Daily Mail.
While there is no explanation about the unique name, fans are reportedly quick to notice that it is likely a Game of Thrones-inspired name. As revealed, two minor characters of the same name appeared on the show. One of them is “wildling,” who starred in two episodes of the fifth season, the reports said.
In Season 8, another character of a similar name appeared in Winterfell, where Turner’s character, Sansa Stark, resides. As explained, the name of this character, who starred as a servant is “Willow.”
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas kept everything private
Rumors of pregnancy first emerged in February, as per claims. Despite the continued speculations, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas never confirmed nor denied the assertions, as per Page Six.
Amid the lockdown in the United States, though, the media and fans have repeatedly seen them in brief public outings. During these times, several photos of them emerged, which seemingly confirmed the pregnancy because of the actress’ “baby bump.”
This dynamic continued until last week. Several photos and clips of Turner and Jonas circulated, showing her full-grown bump. This is why it became a surprise when news broke that she already gave birth days after.
They tied the knot in 2019
The first time parents tied the knot in May 2019. It was a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas after attending the Billboard Music Awards. A month later, they tied the knot again in front of their families in France, with a more formal ceremony.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas first dated in 2016, and their engagement happened a year after. But, they reportedly made their debut appearance only in 2019, during a red carpet event.
