Sophie Turner is best known for playing the role of Sansa Stark on the HBO series, ever since it first aired on-screen in 2011. It’s not so surprising that the actress was inspired a bit when finding a name for her daughter and her connections with Game of Thrones giving some great examples.
The couple welcomed their first baby daughter a few days ago and as reported, they decided to call the baby as Willa. Fans quickly stated this is not the first time they hear the name Willa.
The first, one character named Willa was a wildling that first appeared in season five of Game Of Thrones for two episodes. While the other character with the name Willa had an appearance in season eight in The Last of the Starks episode, who was a servant at Winterfell whose allegiance was to House Stark.
Pointing out the reference, one fan tweeted: “Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas just became parents and apparently their daughter is named Willa. And thats a game of thrones name. And a Stark name. That’s just so cool I can’t. #gameofthrones #joejonas #sophieturner.”
Another said: “Omg Sophie Turner has named her baby girl Willa. A complete Got aka A Song of Ice and Fire reference congratulations.”
According to TMZ reports about the baby daughter’s entrance to the world, added with sources for Entertainment Tonight: “Joe and Sophie welcomed a baby girl last Wednesday in LA and are over the moon.”
“The couple are already obsessed and can’t stop gloating about their new addition.“
However before that, the couple never made any public announcement that they were expecting their first baby together. The press and fans just spotted the actress hanging around with a cute baby bump alongside with her husband Joe Jonas during the lockdown on LA streets.
The couple first met each other at the MTV EMAs in 2016 and started dating in the following year and decided to confirm their romantic relationship in 2019 which followed two happy wedding ceremonies held in Las Vegas and France.
