- Sophie Turner said she feels “strongly” about her and Joe Jonas’ daughter not becoming a “nepotism child.”
- Turner told Elle UK that her child, Willa, did not ask for fame, so she will not impose it on her.
- “We’re quite strict about that,” the actress said.
The “Game of Thrones” star said that she is especially protective of her daughter, born in July 2020because she did not choose life as a celebrity.
“My daughter never asked for any of this,” Turner said.
“I know what it can do to your mental health to be in this industry, and to be photographed every day and have the comments,” she continued. “It’s not something I want her to deal with unless she says, ‘This is what I want to do.'”
Turner added: “We’m quite strict about that. We’ll encourage her to do whatever she wants but I do not think we would professionally let her do anything until she’s 18. I also feel quite strongly about my daughter not becoming a nepotism child. “
Turner and Jonas wed in two ceremonies that occurred in 2019: a casual one in Vegas in May and a formal, more private one held in Paris in June.
While the Vegas ceremony was live-streamed by Di plo, a guest at the wedding, their European nuptials were much more guarded. To date, Turner and Jonas have only shared a few images from the Paris wedding.
When Turner became pregnant with her and Jonas’ first child, they maintained a similar level of privacy and did not comment on reports.
In a deleted Instagram story shared in May 2021, Turner slammed paparazzi for taking photos of her daughter without her consent.
“The reason that I am not posting pictures of my daughter and making sure that we can avoid paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there,” she said. “She is my daughter. She did not ask for this life, to be photographed.”
In a recent conversation for The Wrap’s “UnWrapped “ podcast, Turner said that motherhood gave her a “different perspective” as an actor.
“The concept of family has made me an entirely much more emotional person,” she said. “The empathy is heightened; the feelings about family are just like overflowing. It made me a better actor for becoming a mother.”
She shared similar comments in her interview with Elle UK, saying: “The greatest thing in life is seeing my daughter go from strength to strength. We’re so excited to be expanding the family. It’s the best blessing ever.”
