Joey King and her boyfriend, Steven Piet, have tied the knot, celebrating their love on the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca. The beloved ‘Bullet Train’ actress and director Steven Piet, who have been together for over four years, said their vows in an intimate ceremony attended by their closest friends and family.
In the days leading up to their wedding, 24-year-old Joey King shared a heartwarming series of photos of her and the 32-year-old director cuddling up in Portugal. She captioned the Instagram post with these heartfelt words: “Love is cool! Love is grand! Love is kissing in front of the Fonte dos Amores and having too many caipirinhas together.”
The couple’s love story began when Steven directed two episodes of Joey King’s series, ‘The Act.’ They got engaged in February 2022, and Joey King joyfully announced their engagement on Instagram, expressing her overwhelming happiness.
She wrote, “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. 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.”
The proposal took place on 02/02/2022, a date that holds a special place in their hearts. Joey King shared, “The date was 2/2/22 when you asked me to marry you and made me the luckiest lady alive. 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.”
Steven Piet also shared his sentiments on his own page, acknowledging that, despite less-than-perfect weather on the day, he asked his “best friend” to spend their lives together. He reminisced about their special moments, from heartfelt conversations to silent cab rides home after enjoying great food and red wine, all accompanied by uncontrollable laughter.

The couple’s journey began in 2019 when Steven Piet directed two episodes of Joey King’s Hulu miniseries, “The Act.” Their engagement was announced by King on Instagram last March, accompanied by photos from a desert proposal. She described the moment as “a real dream,” expressing her profound happiness.
“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,” King wrote in the 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.”
Continuing her heartfelt message, she mentioned, “The date was 2/2/22 when you asked me to marry you and made me the luckiest lady alive.”
On his Instagram account, Steven Piet shared additional details about this significant moment in their lives. Despite less-than-ideal weather on the day, he chose the moment to ask his “best friend” to spend a lifetime together. He recalled their lifetime of safe and vulnerable conversations, holding hands during silent cab rides home after enjoying great food and red wine, and the infectious laughter they shared.
“You’ve unlocked a dimension of love in me that I never knew existed,” he added.
In May, Joey King celebrated her director husband’s 32nd birthday with a touching tribute. She posted photos of the two gazing into each other’s eyes, followed by a series of other pictures together.
“To the man who, when I lay my eyes on him, makes my breath catch from how lucky I feel that he’s mine,” King captioned the post.
She continued, “How does one describe a person like you? I don’t fully know. What I do know is that the world became a better place the day you were born. Happy birthday Stevie P. Your love is my happy place.”
Her message also included lyrics from the Swedish song “Tjugonde” by Amason, which roughly translates to: “Beneath the surface the crocodiles, barracuda, great whites / And in the trees there’s brooding vultures / But right now they’re leaving us alone.”

She sported a white veil and chic halter-neck dress, toasting her “bachelorette” with friends and family at a winery.
