And baby makes three.

Joe Jonas and wife Sophie Turner have welcomed their first child, USA TODAY has confirmed. 

The couple, who married last year, "are delighted to announce the birth of their baby," according to a statement from publicist Gertie Lowe. They did not announce the baby's name or gender. 

Rumors Turner was expecting started swirling earlier this year and the "Game of Thrones" star was spotted in several photographs in recent months sporting a baby bump. But the two did not comment on the rumors publicly, choosing to keep the news private until the baby was born.

Turner and the Jonas Brothers singer tied the knot last year in Las Vegas following the Billboard Music Awards.

In an interview with Elle earlier this year, Turner said she "hated" the Jonas Brothers before marrying Jonas.

"There was this band in the UK called Busted,” she explained. "They had a hit called ‘Year 3000.’ It was amazing, and we were huge Busted fans. Then the Jonas Brothers covered the song and made it massive. And Busted broke up. We thought it was all the Jonas Brothers’ fault. So we hated them.”

Then, as fate would have it, a movie producer and Joe's agent, on different occasions, mentioned that she should meet Joe.

"(Joe's agent) was like, ‘You remind me of one of my clients. I bet you two would really hit it off.’ ” she recalled.

As their modern love story goes, Joe later DM'ed her while touring in the UK and they met up for drinks.

“I expected him to show up with security and everything. I thought, ‘He’s gonna be such a (expletive),' " she recalled. "He didn’t bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn’t contrived. It wasn’t small talk – it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable."
