Hailee Steinfeld is a woman of many talents. She can sing, she can dance, she can act, and apparently, she can play matchmaker with her pals. And when Hailee Steinfeld decided to play cupid, the relationship that followed led to a happy engagement. It’s true! Just ask Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas.

In a recent interview with Nova 96.9’s Smallzy, the Pitch Perfect star — who previously collaborated with Jonas’s band DNCE on ‘Rock Bottom,’ — revealed that she’s the one who encouraged Turner when the Game of Thrones actress asked her to vouch for Joe.

‘So Joe just got engaged to my really good friend Sophie Turner, and I’m freaking out about it,’ Hailee Steinfeld shared. ‘I mean, I will say, I did get that text from Sophie being like, ‘So tell me about Joe,’ and I was like ‘Go for it!”

And she’s *so* excited for the happy couple.

‘I actually just saw them both for the first time since they got engaged; I saw them together,’ she added. ‘And yeah, I mean, I’m freaking out about it.’

If we were responsible for someone else’s engagement, we’d totally freak out too!

Joe and Sophie (or should we say #JOPHIE?!) have always kept their relationship under wraps, so when news got out that they were planning to tie the knot, everyone went nuts!

But on one of the few times that Turner spilled details about her relationship with the DNCE frontman, she shared that she’s happy to have found someone who understands her line of work.

‘I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world,’ she says. ‘You realise that you’re not going to see each other all the time. And you don’t feel like a jerk when you’re like, ‘My publicist says I can’t do this…”

The celebrity couple has also been keeping their wedding plans on the DL, but what we do know is that Turner’s co-star and BFF Maisie Williams will be one of the bridesmaids.

‘I already got it,’ Williams told Radio Times when asked if she’s eyeing for a spot as one of the bridesmaids. ‘It’s very, very exciting. It’s kind of bizarre, though.’

We wish we knew more about Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s upcoming nuptials, but one thing’s for sure: They’ll soon be sending Hailee Steinfeld a raven with an invite to the wedding.
