Joe & Sophie's Split Revealed Their Second Child's Name
They'd been hiding the name for over a year.
For over a year since their second daughter was born, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been very protective over keeping her name a secret. However, with the recent announcement of their divorce, that secret has become much harder to keep. Part of the initial paperwork for the couple’s divorce filing revealed their second child’s initials, and as more documents were signed, their daughter’s full name was finally made public.
An affidavit obtained by E! referenced Jonas and Turner’s youngest daughter by the initials D.J., and also confirmed that she was born on July 5, 2022 in Miami, FL. The filing requested that Jonas and Turner have equal co-parenting rights after their split, advocating for “shared parental responsibility” between the two.
About three weeks later, Entertainment Tonight obtained court documents that revealed the child’s first name: Delphine.
Jonas and Turner announced that they’d welcomed their second child back in July 2022, revealing that their firstborn Willa had become a big sister to a baby girl. In the 14 months since Delphine’s birth, the couple has remained quiet on her name.
The baby name revelation comes amidst Jonas and Turner’s divorce, which was first reported on Sept. 3 and then later confirmed when Jonas officially filed a divorce proceeding a couple days later, and Turner posted a statement about the split on Instagram. “After four wonderful years of marriage we have mutually decided to amicably end our marriage,” Turner wrote. “This is a united decision and we sincerely hope that everyone can respect our wishes for privacy for us and our children.”
Jonas and Turner’s divorce came as a surprise to fans, who’d been keeping up with the loved-up couple for seven years. They first got together in 2016, when Turner revealed that Jonas had hit her up via a DM. They finally went Instagram official at the start of 2017, and by the end of that year, they got engaged. In the summer of 2019, the couple surprised everyone with a sudden Las Vegas wedding. They followed up the quickie Vegas wedding with a formal ceremony in France the next month.
The next summer, in 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, Willa. And two years later, their second daughter was born in the summer of 2022. And now we finally know that she was given the name Delphine.
