Joey King has been seeing Steven Piet for over two years and is now engaged. On Tuesday, March 1, the 22-year-old actress made public her engagement with a series of photos of her and the producer, 30, kissing in the desert, accompanied by a statement gushing over her new beau.
The 22-year-old actress announced her engagement to Piet on February 2 on Instagram, revealing photographs from the proposal.
In her caption, Joey expressed her joy along the lines of “I never thought bliss could be so intense that it could knock the air out of your lungs, overwhelming every part of you that you can’t help but feel your eyes well from the irrefutable delight,” she said alongside the photo on Instagram.
“I had no idea that someone’s presence and heart could feel like a true home.” I had no idea love could be so breathtakingly wonderful. I had no idea till you told me.” According to King’s account, the couple waited a month before announcing their relationship milestone publicly. “You asked me to marry you on 2/2/22 and made me the luckiest lady alive,” the In Between actress concluded.
“The weather was less than great,” Piet noted on his page. Cold. Windy. To ask my closest friend to spend the rest of my life with me is perfectly imperfect. A lifetime of extremely safe and vulnerable exchanges. On silent cab rides home after a night of wonderful food and red wine, we held hands. Oh, and the guffaws. “I couldn’t stop laughing.”
In September of this year, Piet and King made their relationship public by attending a Cinespia’s showing of ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ in Los Angeles.
The duo met on the set of The Act, a Hulu drama in which King featured as Gypsy Rose Blanchard, according to US Weekly. Piet was working on the show as a producer, and it was nominated for Golden Globes, Emmys, and Screen Actors Guild Awards when it premiered in 2019. From 2017 to early 2019, the Fargo actor dated Jacob Elordi, who played her lover in Netflix’s Kissing Booth trilogy. King, who dated co-star Jacob Elordi until splitting up in 2018, declared in 2020 that she would never date another actor.
Fans were left wondering what would happen to Joey’s love life once she and Jacob parted up. She began seeing her current boyfriend, Steven Piet, in 2019, and the two appear to be inseparable since then. The duo made their first red carpet debut together at the 2019 Emmy Awards, they’ve known each other for a long time, even before they made their relationship official. She may have landed the job of a lifetime while appearing in The Act, but it was also where these two met for the first time.
Steven directed two of the season’s episodes, “Free” and “Plan B,” as a co-executive producer on The Act. He’s also directed Briarpatch and Channel Zero episodes. Uncle John, a film he wrote and directed, was released in 2015. In 2018, Steven worked as a consultant producer on Nightflyers, a movie based on a collection of short stories by the Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin.
His IMDB page says that he worked as a cinematographer, digital image technician, and editor on previous projects.
Steven turned 30 on May 22, which makes him eight years older than Joey, according to TV Guide Time. On his special day, she shared a heartfelt message on Instagram.
“It’s ridiculous, but I have a huge crush on you. It’s National You Day, my love, and I’m so glad you’re in my life, and I’m glad you’re in mine. I adore you “she wrote beside a carousel of incredibly cute romantic photos.
Not at all like in the movies. While filming The Kissing Booth, Joey King and Jacob Elordi fell in love, but their off-screen romance did not last as long as the one that audiences enjoyed onscreen.
In the 2018 Netflix film Elle Evans and Noah Flynn, the former couple played Elle Evans and Noah Flynn, respectively. Their characters were involved in an illicit romance, and the actors’ chemistry blossomed into a real-life relationship.
Despite conflicting reviews, The Kissing Booth, based on Beth Reekles’ novel of the same name, has been viewed by millions of Netflix subscribers, many of whom are curious about Joey King and Jacob Elordi’s real-life romance. Joey King and Jacob Elordi’s relationship was a whirlwind romance, just like their characters’. The duo dated in real life after meeting on the set of The Kissing Booth until their breakup in 2019.
Fans speculated that Joey King and Jacob Elordi had broken up three months after Us Weekly’s update on their romance. The rumours began after Elordi revealed on his Instagram Stories that he was taking a sabbatical from social media at the moment.
Meanwhile, Joey King’s most known performances include Gypsy Rose in The Act, Ramona in Ramona and Beezus, Clare in Wish Upon, and Elle Evans in Netflix’s The Kissing Booth trilogy.
