It feels like approximately 500 celebrities have become new moms so far in 2020, and today, that list got a little bit longer. This afternoon, TMZ reported that Sophie Turner gave birth to her first child with husband Joe Jonas in Los Angeles. In a statement to Billboard, the couple confirmed the baby news, but didn’t give any other details. According to the reports, the baby is a little girl named Willa, and I hope this is true, because I love that name. A+ work Sophie and Joe.
Sophie’s pregnancy was first reported in February by JustJared and E! News, with multiple sources saying that the couple intended to keep things “very hush hush.” But leaky sources aside, Sophie and Joe actually did just that. Neither of them ever made any public announcement about the pregnancy, and the only real confirmation came from recent paparazzi pics featuring a very obviously pregnant Sophie. Sophie basically pulled a Kylie Jenner during her pregnancy, but somehow way less annoying. Hopefully she’ll put out a YouTube pregnancy video that’s a parody of Kylie’s.
Sophie and Joe are undeniably one of the hottest couples, and their baby news is exciting for a few reasons. First of all, I’ve been calling Joe Jonas daddy for years, but now that it’s finally official, I won’t get weird looks when I say it. This means that Nick Jonas is now the only Jonas Brother who hasn’t experienced fatherhood, but I have to imagine it’s only a matter of time before he and Priyanka have adorable children. Oh, and I guess there’s also Frankie Jonas, but 1) he’s only 19 and 2) I’m not sure he actually counts.

Also, hopefully we can now get back to Sophie Turner’s best content: chugging wine and spilling tea. I know there are rules about drinking and breastfeeding (I don’t actually know the rules, I just know they exist), but this is honestly the content we need to get us through the rest of this year. Sadly, Sophie can’t chug wine at a hockey game this year because there are no fans allowed, but she better do it in the safety of her own home, and post it on Instagram.
Now that baby Turner-Jonas is here, it’ll be interesting to see if Sophie and Joe keep things as quiet as they did during the pregnancy, but for our sake, I hope not. Obviously they can do whatever they want, but Joe and Sophie are one of my favorite couples, and I’m always in the mood for cute baby content. Congrats to the new parents!

If you’re currently stressing out about the nightmare that is wedding season, at least you’re not alone. Over this past weekend, there were four major celebrity weddings, and it was a lot to keep track of. By that, I mean that I was furiously refreshing the Instagram stories of anyone within a mile radius of Jax and Brittany’s wedding in Kentucky. We all have flaws, and mine is that I care far too much about anyone who works at Sur.
This weekend really was like a celebrity episode of Four Weddings, so I’m going to just pretend that’s what it was. If you’re unfamiliar with the glorious trash TV that is Four Weddings, it’s a reality show where four brides all attend each other’s weddings, and then rate them based on four categories: Dress, Venue, Food, and Overall Experience.
In case you weren’t glued to Instagram this entire weekend, let’s recap who actually got married. First, as I already mentioned, we have Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, stars of Vanderpump Rules, who got married in Kentucky. The wedding was a who’s who of Bravolebrities and random other people, and was just as gloriously tacky as you’d expect.
Next, we have Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, who had their official wedding in France, two months after their random Vegas wedding after the Billboard Music Awards. Priyanka was there, and she cried.
Also in France, Zoë Kravitz married actor Karl Glusman in Paris, and all the cool people you’d expect, including some of her Big Little Lies cast, were there.
Finally, Katharine McPhee married her much-older man David Foster in London on Friday, kicking off what is her second marriage and his fifth. I’m not judging!!
I’ll be honest and say that Brittany’s dress is not for me. From watching many, many episodes of Say Yes To The Dress, I know that I will never be into dresses with sheer bodices, and the contrast between the opaque skirt and the sheer part is a little jarring. But also, I was expecting to hate Brittany’s dress a lot more. She didn’t have a 50-foot train, or a ginormous ball gown, and for that I am thankful.
Rudely enough, we haven’t gotten photos of Sophie Turner in her gown yet. Well, technically that’s not true. There’s one grainy-ass aerial photo that was probably taken by a paparazzi drone, and I’m not going to try to guess what the dress actually looked like from that. But I’m sure she looked amazing.
Rating: 8/10 (Probably a 10/10 in real life but I’m just guessing here.)
Unfortunately, we’re still waiting to see Zoë’s actual wedding dress, but for now we can go off of her rehearsal dinner look. Tbh, it’s iconic. Zoë is not the kind of person to wear a boring pretty dress, so I’m all for her bridal biker shorts look.
Rating: 7/10 (Deduction taken for no actual wedding dress photos.)

Let the celeb weddings continue – @katharinemcphee and @davidfoster married over the weekend in London. In true millennial form, Katharine swapped dresses for the reception, from her @zacposen gown to a teal blue dress. This is Foster’s 5th marriage, so for Katharine’s sake, we hope this one works out | ? @metrodotstyle
Katharine McPhee is low-key super gorgeous, and her wedding dress didn’t disappoint. Her Zac Posen gown is elegant and timeless, and I love the striped detailing on the skirt. For the reception, she changed into a tea-length teal dress, which is an interesting choice, but she still looks stunning.
For their wedding, Jax and Brittany rented out the entire Kentucky Castle, which is shockingly kind of gorgeous?? The ceremony took place outdoors, and I have never seen grass that green in my life. My main complaint here is the over-the-top greenery that was hanging everywhere inside for the reception. Basically, they decorated the place exactly like Lisa Vanderpump would, which isn’t a good thing.

Joe and Sophie got married at the Chateau de Tourreau in Provence, which is a totally stunning venue. However, the reason I really care about this is that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills literally JUST STAYED THERE. The staff at this place has definitely seen a lot in the past year, from the enire Jonas/Turner/Chopra crew to Kyle Richards nearly falling down the stairs drunk. Where do I apply?
Apparently Lenny Kravitz has made a lot of money in his life, because his house in Paris is f*cking STUNNING. Seriously, British Vogue did a photoshoot inside the house last month, and I would seriously sell a kidney to get married there. I’m assuming the decorations, etc. were all tasteful af, because of course they were.
Katharine and David got married at an Armenian Apostolic church in London, and it really just looks like a basic, old church. Happy for them, but it’s no Lenny Kravitz’s house. Their reception was in a private venue in London’s upscale Mayfair neighborhood, so I’m sure it was nice. Overall, this seems like a great wedding, but I’m uninspired by the venue choice.
Look, I don’t know what any of these people ate at their weddings. I wasn’t there, okay? I’m just going to assume that they all served delicious, gourmet food.
Were all of these weddings fun and beautiful? I’m sure they were. Sorry if you think this is a copout, but based on the extravagance and the number of famous people at each of these weddings, I’m going to give them all a perfect score for experience. You tell me that you wouldn’t want to see drunk Kristen Doute at a wedding, and I’ll tell you you’re lying.
By my tally, that leaves us with a three-way tie for first place between Zoë, Sophie, and Katharine with 37 points each. Sorry, Brittany and Jax. I hope that all four of these couples have long, happy marriages, and that they don’t let the competition of this article diminish from what I’m sure were four magical weddings. Cheers!

I really never anticipated that I would be thinking about the Jonas Brothers this much in 2019, but life is crazy sometimes. Obviously, everyone was losing their minds when they released their comeback single “Sucker,” but things aren’t slowing down. Just in the past 24 hours, they announced their first tour in nearly a decade, performed at the Billboard Music Awards, and had a wedding. That’s right, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner tied the knot last night in Las Vegas, after attending the BBMAs together. We’ve got the Game of Thrones predictions on lock this season, but this was one plot twist we definitely didn’t see coming.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been together since late 2016, and they first announced their engagement in October of 2017. That’s a pretty long engagement, but we had no idea when the wedding was coming. This honestly makes sense, because Sophie Turner seems like one of the chillest people in Hollywood. She’s quickly become one of my favorite people, thanks to her DGAF attitude on social media, and this legendary chug seen around the world:
Sansa can hang. The details of Sophie and Joe’s low-key Vegas wedding are pretty amazing, especially considering this is less than six months after Joe’s brother Nick Jonas married Priyanka Chopra in one of the most extra weddings the world has ever seen. But to each their own, and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner just wanted a Vegas wedding officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Works for me. There definitely wasn’t a People exclusive for this wedding, but luckily Instagram still gave us a closer look at this sacred occasion. Specifically, Diplo documented much of the evening on his IG Story, before he left for his DJ set at a club. Diplo, an ultimate icon.

At the ceremony, country duo Dan + Shay performed an acoustic version of their song “Speechless,” because casual. I would’ve preferred an acoustic rendition of “Tequila,” but for some reason no one consulted me on the music choice. Rude. In the video, you can see Sophie and Joe exchange Ring Pops, and honestly this is the kind of beautiful wedding tradition I’m here for. Who needs diamonds when you can have delicious candy?
It’s unclear if Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner will have any kind of a bigger wedding celebration, but this intimate, random ceremony feels pretty appropriate for such a fun couple. At the very least, I hope they have time for a kickass honeymoon before Joe gets busy with tour rehearsals. Wherever they go, I just hope that Sophie doesn’t forget to post hilarious Instagram stories while they’re there. Her stories are basically the only thing getting me through at this point, so I need this. Sansa Stark might not be one of the G0T characters with big d*ck energy, but Sophie definitely does.
Sadly, this means that all three of the Jonas Brothers are officially off the market, closing an important (imaginary) chapter of my life that started when I was in middle school. Kevin, Joe, Nick, I’ll always love you guys. Well, Kevin not so much, but it felt rude to leave him out. Now, if you want to bag a Jonas brother, your only hope is 18-year-old Frankie, also known as the Bonus Jonas. Ew. Congrats to Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, I feel like a proud parent.

I think most people would agree that dating can be a total pain in the ass. It can be lonely and tedious trying to wade through everyone out there, just trying to find one good match. But if you’re lucky, you have some ride or die friends that are always trying to help you out. Whether my friends are setting me up with someone they know or helping me evaluate my matches on Ship, I need all the help I can get.
If you’re skeptical about the idea of your friends getting involved in your dating life, I get it. But maybe it’s a good idea to let them help you. Lots of your favorite celebrity couples have been set up through friends, and you might not even realize it. Here are some of our favorite examples:
Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra
When Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra first went public with their relationship last year, it seemed super random. Little did we know, there’s one surprising person at the center of their relationship: The Rock. Yes, like Dwayne Johnson. In 2017, Priyanka worked with The Rock on the Baywatch remake, and then Nick worked with him the next year in Jumanji.I’m not sure how much The Rock really played matchmaker here, but he did say that he’ll take credit “if they’re happy.”
Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner
Nick isn’t the only Jonas Brother who got a little romantic help from a friend. In 2016, Joe’s band DNCE did a song with Hailee Steinfeld, who is friends with Sophie Turner. Hailee revealed that Sophie texted her asking about Joe, and she gave her his number and the green light to go for it. Now Sophie is chugging drinks at sporting events and generally seems very happy, so her bold text definitely paid off.
Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris
This relationship wasn’t meant to be, but it was fun while it lasted. Back in 2015, Taylor and Calvin were first introduced by mutual friend (and fellow famous singer) Ellie Goulding. Ellie said that they’re both “really awesome and really tall,” so she thought they would make a great couple. And they did…for a while.
Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden

Happy Birthday Baby❤️ There’s so much to write, so many things that make me so proud of you and how special you are?Thank you for being the best friend and partner to me and taking this journey of Marriage. The way you live your life everyday, and your compassion for the world shines thru in your eyes and you inspire me to want to be the best man I can be in this lifetime. You’re the realest. I’m so grateful to be yours Always&Forever, and to call you my One&Only. True Love ❤️
Cameron Diaz has been married to Benji Madden since 2015, and Nicole Richie happily takes credit for it. Nicole is married to Benji’s brother Joel, and she says that she’s “a devoted sister-in-law.” Someone please tell me how I can get into this family, because I really want to go to Thanksgiving with Nicole and Cameron.
John Krasinski & Emily Blunt
Truly, I think these two are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood. They also work well together, considering I’ve had to sleep with a white noise machine ever since I saw A Quiet Place. Turns out, they were set up on a blind date in 2008 by none other than Anne Hathaway. John said he wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time, but it was love at first sight when he met Emily.
Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux
Jennifer Aniston is one of the most famous and beautiful people in the world, but even pretty people can appreciate some help from a friend. Surprisingly, she was introduced to her ex Justin Theroux by Robert Downey Jr. This seems like, very random, but I guess it’s proof that love can happen in literally any way.
Meghan Markle & Prince Harry

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public. ?PA
This is the setup that made women all over the world question the dedication and loyalty of their friends. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were set up by a mystery mutual friend, and Meghan insists she didn’t really know anything about Harry before meeting him. She’s always said the only thing she asked was “Is he nice?,” which is what my mom asks me when she brings up a guy I went on one date with six months ago.
So you might not have A-list movie star friends to set you up on dates with other A-list movie stars, but that’s not really the point. Dating isn’t always fun, and having your friends in the picture can make it a little more enjoyable, and improve your results. Rather than wasting your time (and mental energy) alone on the apps, let your friends in your Ship crew do the heavy lifting for you. Maybe you’ll meet your Prince Harry (if you do, please tell him to slide in my DMs), or at least someone decent who won’t ignore your texts.
