Sophie has been dating Joe since 2016 and the pair have been married for two years now – becoming first-time parents to their daughter Willa in July last year.

They first went Instagram official in January 2017 – when Sophie shared a snap of Joe smoking a cigar on a boat in Miami – and they became engaged shortly after, as Joe popped the question in October later that year.

Sophie confirmed the proposal in an interview, revealing: ‘It’s lovely to be engaged. 

‘Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I’d find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There’s a sense of peace that comes with finding your person.’

Family: They have kept details of their child's birth fairly private but insiders previously said Joe has been doing 'everything he can' to help his wife Sophie get 'settled'

She told Rolling Stone in March 2019: ‘I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life. I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know.’ 

Addressing her sexuality at the time, Sophie added: ‘I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know. I’ve met enough guys to know – I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.

‘Everyone experiments. It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender.’

The actress and Joe married in a surprise Las Vegas wedding in May 2019, following the Billboard Music Awards, and they held a second ceremony for friends and family in France the following month in June.

Known for being notoriously private when it comes to their relationship, Sophie didn’t publicly announce her pregnancy until their little girl’s arrival, where she and Joe released a statement announcing Willa’s birth. 

Since then, the couple have kept details surrounding their little girl to themselves, but insiders have said Joe has been doing ‘everything he can’ to help wife Sophie ‘get settled’ into their new life as a family of three.

Sophie’s Instagram post marking Pride comes after it was revealed she is set to star in new HBO series The Staircase.

The movie talent joins a star-studded line-up that already includes the likes of Colin Firth, Toni Collette, Parker Posey, Juliette Binoche and Rosemarie DeWitt.

The Staircase is centred on novelist Michael Peterson [Colin Firth] who was accused of murdering his second wife, Kathleen [Toni Collette] in 2001. 

The eight-episode series has been in development for two years and is based on the 2004 docu-series of the same name, which was updated with new episodes in 2018, reports Variety.

The show initially premiered on Canal+ before it moved to Netflix, where it received widespread attention and garnered critical praise. It is also inspired by various books and reports about the case of Michael.

The now-77-year-old author was eventually convicted of murder, although his sentence was later reduced to voluntary manslaughter.
