Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner fought about Legos during the pandemic

Celebs attend launch dinner for new Louis Vuitton fragrances in Paris

Joe Jonas had a recent profile in WSJ. Magazine. He was promoting a variety of things, but mostly he just seemed chill and chatty. He married Sophie Turner in 2019 and they welcomed daughter Willa Jonas in July 2020. I don’t think we’ve seen Willa at all? No baby photos on either of their Instagrams, although their dogs are absolutely featured heavily on IG. Anyway, Joe chatted to WSJ. Magazine about his morning rituals, style advice and fighting with his wife as they were building Lego structures.

His mornings: He doesn’t have a strict wakeup time. He starts by meditating for at least three to five minutes, usually on the Headspace app, then works on his Italian with the Duolingo app. “I’m learning Italian very slowly. I want to be able to get lost in the countryside; that’s my goal.” Next up is writing out his gratitude list, which he says can be as simple as, “I’m grateful for the cup of coffee I’m making.” (Jonas characterizes himself as a coffee snob.) Then he listens to NPR’s daily news podcast Up First and takes a scroll through social media. After that, it’s time for his intensive exercise routine.

The best style advice he’s ever gotten: “Don’t overthink it. I feel like it’s so easy to double-check, triple-check your outfit. Does it match enough, doesn’t match enough? If it feels good on you, you should just wear it. I accidentally wore a shirt inside-out onstage the other day, I didn’t know, and my friend’s like, ‘I like it; it’s cool. It’s inside-out.’ I was like, What? All that said, just go with the flow. Find your own identity and your own personal style and stick to that.”

Pandemic memories: “I got very into Lego building. My wife and I probably built 10 monstrous Legos. It was also quite funny, because I was super focused on helping her but then I was getting easily distracted and playing Fortnite. At first we argued about it and then it was like, she loves her organization and it’s completely different from the way I would build it: ‘You do you; I’ll be here for support.’ So then I became moral support; I’ll make the cocktails for us. We built the Batmobile; we built Harry Potter [Wizarding] World.”

Sophie was probably pregnant and she didn’t want to do anything but stay home and nest with the dogs and build some Lego structures. She was probably so annoyed that he kept wandering off to play Fortnite! I would be. I wonder if she did puzzles too. I bet she did. As for his mornings… he does a lot of strange stuff before he showers or leaves the house or goes to work. Duolingo, meditation, writing gratitudes, listening to a podcast… like, that would drive me crazy. Take a shower, brush your teeth, get moving. I bet Sophie’s mornings are much more structured. And does Joe not help with the baby at all in the mornings?!?

    Lol, I think that’s a good sign they’ll be together forever 🙂

    A lot of strange stuff? That’s strange to say. There are many ways to do mornings.

    • Drea says:

      Right? I thought it was odd too. The guy doesn’t “go to work” like most of us do. If I had a life like that, I’d be doing mornings just about the same way.

    • Skyblue121 says:

      His mornings sound like mine…gym, coffee, breakfast, think about life for awhile and read Celebitchy…all before I consider showering.

    • North of Boston says:

      Yeah, I might not do all those things, but I can imagine a version of my life that I would.

      And a tried a version of the meditation, coffee, journal, exercise routine during lockdown last year, when I desperately needed to break my habit of immediately doomscrolling on my phone as soon as I woke up … because answering the question of “oh God, what has he done now in the few hours I was sleeping?” last year was NOT a good way to start my day.

      That routine actually was really helpful until I had to go back to in person work.

    • Shannon Prestridge says:

      Before I went back to m-f, 9-5 work, my mornings were pretty similar. I didn’t find it strange, it was awesome lol. I actually do Duolingo in the morning too! Good for him lol

    • Yup, Me says:

      That sounded like a proper crunchy granola CA wake up to me.

  3. TeamMeg says:

    I think he might have put a little more thought into the outfit he’s wearing in these pics. That sweater! The necklace! Those shoes!!

  4. Zantasia says:

    I had the same question—what about the baby in the morning? I hope they have help—that morning sounds like an excellent way to do it. Get all your “me-time” in before work and baby duties so you feel charged and ready to be fully there. I say this exhausted from my nightly revenge sleep procrastination routine. Maybe I should get up at 5 and watch my reality tv and eat my cheese crackers/cheese puffs.

    • AMA1977 says:

      This speaks to me. Since I am still working from home, most days I get up, get kids ready, get me ready, take one or both to school, work until pickup time, pick them up, work some more, then get dinner ready, wind down the day, then it’s usually bathtime for my daughter who doesn’t need adult help (she’s nearly 9) but likes “company.” Husband and I alternate nights keeping her company. Then after they go to bed, I can finally sit down and read or watch a show, and I wind up staying up too late so I feel like I have some “me time.” And yes, snacks figure in too a lot of the time…

  5. MaryContrary says:

    This is how you know they have a nanny. When we had a small baby and kids neither of us had this much free time .

  6. AnnaC says:

    I have a friend with a similar morning routine; meditation, journaling, yoga, daily gratitude. Not my jam but she’s equally as perplexed on how I can leave my house for workout class at 5:30 every morning. Whatever works to start the day on a good note.

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    You should have put in a moon door.

  8. Veronica S. says:

    I would assume the omission of details about the baby is probably intentional. They’ve been pretty low key about it and probably don’t want information about her public. Chances are, they have a nanny and are being wisely discreet about that fact in a time of economic instability.

  9. Sof says:

    Some papparazzi took pictures of Sophie and their daughter on a park and she was really upset about it on Instagram, they obviously want to keep her privacy as long as possible. It’s wild to me that there aren’t strict laws in that respect.
    I didn’t find Joe’s morning routine weird though, lot’s of people do that stuff, particularly if they don’t have to work early.
    Also, I am surprised Sophie is a structured person!

  10. bobafelty says:

    I’m not a fan of hers after the video came out where she was freely throwing around the N-word.

  11. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    It’s typically about 4 hours after I wake up before I start work even though I work from home due to the pandemic (and I am still wondering where all that time goes). I wake up at 5, spend 15 minutes waking up and dressing, then about 1 hour of working out (running, biking, or yoga) with stretching. Then a cool down and shower, then breakfast with my kids, then cleaning up breakfast and getting them ready for the day, then a few minutes of reading to my little one, before doing the school run and back home around 8:40. Then I am at my desk for 30 minutes before I am ready for a snack! I think about doing housework or working when I first get up but I noticed that I have better focus during the day when I get exercise early and I am not burned out when all my meetings start.

    I can’t separate her from Sansa Stark in my mind. Never will. And therefore no man is good enough for her. She so out ranks Joe Jonas in my mind, but then again they clearly adore each other and that’s so much more important than her landing a true hunk. Plus, he is adorable. Who cares if he vowed Christian purity as a teenager. My own SO was raised in that same mindset but I don’t judge him for it (also, he has a hilarious story of hooking up with a girl at an overnight bible study in high school. Like, why did their fundamentalist church leave a bunch of teens unattended for a co-ed overnight bible study??)
