Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are now parents to a baby girl.

The 24-year-old Game of Throne actress Sophie Turner and 30-year-old "Sucker" singer Joe Jonas have welcomed their first baby into the world, their representatives confirm to PEOPLE. The couple got married in May 2019 and although they never put out an official statement that they were going to become parents, the gorgeous bump Sophie was photographed sporting at various events, including Black Lives Matter protests, was unmistakable.

In February 2020, news outlets started to report that she and Joe were going to become parents. When Sophie was photographed shopping at a children's store in California in March, it was pretty much confirmed for fans that there was a bun in the oven. 

A few months later, in May, Joe discussed spending time with his wife while in quarantine. 

"We're having a good time. We got married last year, so we're new to this, so we're still enjoying that time," Joe said during an appearance on SiriusXM Hits 1's Celebrity Session hosted by The Morning Mash Up. "Also, we were on tour for what feels like more than a year, so being home is kinda nice."

"We appreciate and we know that time for ourselves is important," he added. "So, I'll do my thing, she does her thing, even though we're all under one roof. I think that's been helpful for us."

Since Sophie was pregnant during quarantine and still out there showing support for the social unrest that erupted across the U.S. over the past few months, a source told PEOPLE, "They're being cautious because of Sophie's pregnancy," – and now their baby is here.

At this time, the new parents haven't shared a photo of their little girl, and there are no details on her birth weight or any identifying factors (like does she have dark brown hair like dad or light red like mama?).

The name Willa is a sweet choice for these celebrity parents because it's not too strange and out there like other celebrities like to do and it's not super common either. According to BabyNameWizard, "Willa" comes from a typical "boy" name: William. 

The name means "resolute protector" and was more popular back in the 1930s, but there's been a small resurgence in its popularity over the past few years.

"Willa Jonas - first of her name , princess in the North , daughter of Jophie, saviour of 2020," another said.
