Sophie Turner hits back at partying claims, says kids are ‘victims’ in Joe Jonas divorce: I’m a good mom

Sophie Turner is hitting back at mom-shamers.

The “Game of Thrones” alum denied September 2023 reports that circulated amid her and Joe Jonas’ divorce alleging she had left daughters Willa, 3, and Delphine, 1, to party.

“Those were the worst few days of my life,” Turner, 28, told British Vogue in an interview published Wednesday, clarifying that she is “a good mum” and has “never been a partier.”

The actress looked back on when the “articles started coming out” last year while she was filming “Joan” in Europe.

She recalled, “I was on set, I was contracted to be on set for another two weeks, so I couldn’t leave. My kids were in the States and I couldn’t get to them because I had to finish.

“It hurt because I really do completely torture myself over every move I make as a mother – mum guilt is so real! I just kept having to say to myself, ‘None of this is true.’”

After wrapping, Turner flew to New York City, where she and Jonas, 34, underwent mediation.

The former couple, who married in Las Vegas in May 2019, reached an “amicable” custody resolution in October 2023.

However, the “Dark Phoenix” star filed to “reactivate” their divorce in March following failed attempts to settle child custody and property.

She called Willa and Delphine the “victims” of their divorce while giving the magazine a co-parenting update.

“I’m unhappy with the way everything played out, especially when it comes to my children,” she said. “But I think we’re doing the best we can. I’m confident that we can figure it out. Joe is a great father to our children and that’s all that I can ask for.”

Turner and Jonas got together in 2016 and conceived their first baby four years later when the “Staircase” star was 24 years old.

“Maybe because I was so young, I sat on [my positive pregnancy test] for a week,” she revealed. “Thankfully there were therapists there to help me talk things through. I told my husband when I got back [from a retreat in Bali].”

Turner said she “threw” the test at the Jonas Brothers member and asked, “What do you think we should do? Do you think we should have it?”

She explained that her life had been “frivolous” before, saying, “I really didn’t know if I wanted to be a mother, but something changed in me that day. I just knew I had to have her.”

Willa was born in July 2020, with Delphine arriving two years later.

Turner clarified that baby No. 2 was planned.

“Because my ex and I travel so much, I wanted Willa to have a sibling,” she said. “I wanted them to have each other.”

The Emmy nominee called her “miracle” daughters “so much fun, total girlie girls and absolute rays of sunshine in [her] life.”
