While she may have macked on with a few different people in The Kissing Booth, Joey King has officially found her forever love and last kiss, in Steven Piet. With the actress just announcing her engagement, everyone is wanting to know more about her big love.
"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," she wrote on 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. 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."
Below, everything we know about the happy couple's relationship and Piet himself.
King and Piet met on the set of The Act in early 2019. The true crime thriller saw the actress star as Gypsy Blanchard, while Steven worked as co-executive producer. Once the show had been released, the pair posed for a photo together at the 2019 Emmys, but neither had yet confirmed if they were officially an item.
The pair first sparked dating rumours in September 2019 when they were spotted at a screening of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets. Joey and Steven attended the flick while on a triple date with Kings' two sisters, Hunter and Kelli and their dates. Speaking to E! a source said, "Joey and Steven cuddled the entire time and looked very happy together."
The pair have kept a pretty low profile since then, particularly since the pandemic hit not long after they made things official and most of the world was stuck in quarantine. The couple did attend the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2020/2021 show in February 2020 where they were photographed at a sit-down dinner.
Later in the year, Joey shared a loved up picture of the pair over Christmas 2020 and happy snaps of a road trip taken in March 2021. A few days ago, Joey shared another series of holiday snaps while the pair lived their best lives in Costa Rica, which came just a few days before her engagement announcement.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
