Sophie Turner Says She Made an ‘Honest Mistake’ When She Briefly Posted Video of Her Daughter

This morning, Sophie Turner briefly shared a video of her and Joe Jonas' two-year-old daughter Willa on her Instagram Story. She took it down—and explained it had been anything but deliberate, as she and Jonas are trying to protect their children's privacy.

Turner wrote, “Earlier today I made an honest mistake accidentally posting a video of our daughter on instagram stories. We have always advocated for our kids’ rights to privacy so sharing this publicly is something that is against anything I stand for. Our children deserve the right to grow up out of the public eye, to learn and grow in private. If I ever were to post anything of our kids, know that it is unquestionably a mistake. I would greatly appreciate if anyone who has reposted on any other platform, please delete the video.”

Turner has previously discussed how important it is to her and Jonas to keep her children out of the spotlight for their mental health. She told ELLE UK in May 2022 while pregnant with her second child, “I’m very protective of the life we’ve built. Every time Joe and I do a red carpet together, we make sure it’s for the right reason and makes sense for our careers. You never want to market yourself as a celebrity couple. It’s not that cool.”

“And my daughter never asked for any of this,” she continued, referring to Willa. “I know what it can do to your mental health to be in this industry, and to be photographed every day and have the comments. It’s not something I want her to deal with unless she says, ‘This is what I want to do.’ We’re quite strict about that. We’ll encourage her to do whatever she wants but I don’t think we would professionally let her do anything until she’s 18. I also feel quite strongly about my daughter not becoming a nepotism child.”
