Joey King is engaged! The Kissing Booth and Bullet Train star took to Instagram on Tuesday evening to announce her engagement to boyfriend Steven Piet, which happened last month on February 2, 2022.
“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,” Joey wrote in her Instagram caption. “I never knew that a person’s presence and heart could feel like a real home. I never knew love could be so unquestionably beautiful. I never knew until you.”
Joey went on to share her memory of the day she got engaged, which was on one of February’s special repetitive “angel number” dates. “The date was 2/2/22 when you asked me to marry you and made me the luckiest lady alive,” continued Joey. “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 pair have already received plenty of congratulations from the likes of Elle Fanning, Shannon Purser, Camila Mendes, Lana Condor, Anna Sophia Robb, Yara Shahidi and more. BFF Sabrina Carpenter joked, “Still getting used to our open relationship but really happy for you guys.”
The announcement post included photos of the couple embracing, as well as a cheeky shot of Joey flipping the camera her ring finger. The 22-year-old actor and her now-fiancé Piet, 30, have been dating for three years, after meeting on the set of The Act, Hulu’s true crime limited series in which Joey portrayed Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Piet was a producer/director on the show. For his milestone birthday last May, Joey posted a sweet tribute to Piet on IG.
“I have such a huge crush on you it’s stupid,” she wrote in the caption. “It’s national you day my love, and I couldn’t be happier that you’re in my life and that I’m in yours. I love you.”
