She said yes! Joey King is engaged to Steven Piet after dating for three years.
The 22-year-old actress made her engagement announcement on Tuesday, March 1, with a series of photos that showed her and the producer, 30, kissing in a desert alongside a caption gushing over her new fiancé.
“I never knew happiness could be so powerful that it can take the air from your lungs, overwhelming every part of you that you can’t help but feel your eyes well from the undeniable joy,” the Kissing Booth star wrote via Instagram. “I never knew that a persons presence and heart could feel like a real home. I never knew love could be so unquestionably beautiful. I never knew until you.”
King’s caption also revealed that the pair waited one month before publicly announcing their relationship milestone. “The date was 2/2/22 when you asked me to marry you and made me the luckiest lady alive,” the In Between star continued. “I love you more than an Instagram caption could ever do justice. Hanging out with you forever sounds like a real dream, so let’s do it.”
The groom-to-be was equally excited. “The weather was less than perfect. Cold. Windy,” Piet recalled in a social media upload of his own. “Perfectly imperfect to ask my best friend to spend a lifetime together. A lifetime of incredibly safe and vulnerable conversations. Holding hands on silent cab rides home, exhausted from great food and red wine. And oh, the laughter. The uncontrollable laughter.”
He concluded, “You’ve unlocked a dimension of love in me that I never knew existed.”
The pair met on the set of The Act, the Hulu miniseries where King played Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Piet was a producer on the show, which earned King nominations at the Golden Globes, Emmys and Screen Actors Guild Awards after its 2019 debut.
