The Game Of Thrones actor gave an interview to The Sunday Times where she revealed that their romance had gone through a rocky patch prior to their marriage and that they both temporarily decided to go their separate ways.
Discussing the day of their mini break-up, she said: “It was the worst day of our lives. For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, “Never mind”.’
As for how being with Joe has improved her overall mental health, the 23-year-old explained: “I was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell.
“He was, like, “I can’t be with you until you love yourself, I can’t see you love me more than you love yourself”. ‘That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way.”
The couple recently tied the knot during an impromptu Las Vegas wedding ceremony after the Billboard Music Awards. Having said that, an insider told Entertainment Tonight that they’re still planning a second, more formal ceremony, in Paris.
“Joe and Sophie are a couple that loves to have fun and live in the moment, and that’s exactly what getting hitched in Vegas was.
“The couple does plan to have a more formal wedding with their family and friends, but this ceremony was just fun. Joe and Sophie are planning to get married in Paris later this year.”
