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!
