‘I’m so thankful and grateful’: Joe Jonas says time at home with his wife Sophie Turner and their baby daughter amid shutdown was ‘amazing’
Joe Jonas opened up Tuesday about spending time with wife Sophie Turner and their baby daughter Willa amid the pandemic shutdown.
‘It’s been forced time at home – I’m always on the go, I’m always moving and traveling and touring,’ the 31-year-old musical star told CBS This Morning.
He said that ‘to be in one place for a solid amount of time and having my feet on the ground and be with my family, my immediate family, is time I don’t think I’ll get back.’

Jonas added that he was ‘so thankful and grateful’ for the time with his nine-month-old daughter and wife, who he recently celebrated his second anniversary with.
Asked about lessons he learned since expecting Willia last July, Jonas said that ‘naps are nice, all around.’
In the chat, the musical star said that he was ‘ready to get back on the road’ to perform, having been sidelined since March of 2020 when the coronavirus struck.
‘This year, for all of us, it’s been challenging in different ways,’ he said. ‘What I’ve missed is getting on stage and being able to see those fans, see those faces. The minute that can happen again in a safe way, I’m there.’

Jonas said that he’s also been concerned about frontline workers who have risked their health to keep things running.
