Despite what it seems, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas had their doubts before tying the knot. The Game of Thrones actress, 23, even confessed that she and the singer, 29, momentarily split before realizing that was a mistake.
“It was the worst day of our lives,” she told The Sunday Times of London in an interview published on May 19. “For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, ‘Never mind.'” Sophie and Joe got married in Las Vegas after the Billboard Music Awards on May 1, at an Elvis-themed chapel. The ceremony was documented on Instagram live by Diplo. “Gonna hit this wedding real quick,” the DJ, 40, posted on his Instagram Story with a video of the bride and groom walking into the chapel. Days later, photos of their marriage certificate surfaced and by the looks of it, Sophie plans to take on her hubby’s last name, officially turning her into of the of the J sisters.
It’s evident the newlyweds share a special bond. In the same interview, the blonde beauty revealed the Jonas Brother member helped her get through some really difficult times. “He was, like, ‘I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself,’” Sophie said regarding the early stages of their relationship. “That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.”
Though it’s been a struggle, Sophie is mentally in a better place now. “I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think,” she expressed during a podcast appearance in April. “I don’t think I love myself at all, but I’m now with someone that makes me realize, you know, that I do have some redeeming qualities, I suppose.” That’s the best kind of love!
