“I’m still like, 'Holy s**t! I’m engaged,’” Sophie admitted to the mag, but confessed she doesn’t consider it a major achievement. “There’s this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that’ll ever happen to you."
"But I’ve always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there’s a sense that this is the greatest thing I’ll do in my life,” she said.
Still, Sophie said, "It’s lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I’d find a house that I love and want to stay in forever.”
She said there’s a basic difference between finding love and finding what you love to do: “There’s a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there’s a drive that comes with your career.”
Sophie and Joe revealed they were engaged in October after about a year of dating. The two bonded over their shared high-profile careers. “I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world,” Sophie told InStyle.
