Steven was a Movie Maniac Since Childhood
The Chicago native had a passion for movies from a very young age. As just a kid who was in 5th grade, he thought that a movie was made by all those actors in frontline and was enamored by their actions and stunts, dialogues and style, and just the beauty of all that glitz and glamour. Little did he know about the hustle and bustle and collaboration of every individual required from those working in front of the cameras to behind the scenes to deliver a simple piece of work.
As he grew up, he aspired to pursue a career in the film industry but didn’t know how to begin with. All he knew was he’s gonna drop some masterpieces and classy work and for that, he needed to attend a directing class to mold his hidden skills and guide his energy in the right direction. Initially, he made some short movies on his own, however, the actual change occurred when he enrolled in a college.
Gradually, he explored a lot of things when he studied at Savanah College of Arts and Design. That’s when he mainly focused on writing and movie making. Going to college was like taking a glance at an encyclopedia for him. He finally graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in cinema and video study.

You name it and the house was full of all top-tier performers. Meryl Streep, Liam Nesson, and Selena Gomez were among many to come together to deliver their A class act.

In her Instagram post, the couple seemed madly in love by the way they were looking at each other. In addition, Steven is 8 yrs older than her and she was just 19yrs old when she played in the show.
Although Joey announced his relationship with her boyfriend on her Instagram in 2020, the rumors of both dating have been swirling since 2019. Fans were quick to notice when they were initially spotted at the screening of the Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets movies. It was casual dating though, as the lovebirds were accompanied by King’s sisters, Hunter and Kelli.
Steven Proposed to Joey King With a Splendid Engagement Ring
As their romance took a step toward a milestone in their relationship, Piet proposed to her wife-to-be with a stunning diamond ring. After 3 yrs of dating, and hide and seek with the media, the couple finally got engaged on 2nd Feb 2022.
Steven and her fiancee King made the announcement following their return from an exotic vacation at the waterfalls of Costa Rica. The Act producer recalled that it was a chilly day and there was no ambiance to set up the mood. And yet it was imperfectly perfect for him.
So, there you go; imperfect is the new perfection! My dear friends. With the start of American Heart Month and the gush of butterflies, Steven wouldn’t have found a perfect season to express his love to his forever valentine. Man! February is a month of love indeed!
Steven Piet’s Fiancee, Joey King, and Her Relation With Selena Gomez
Joey Lynn King is an actress who debuted at the age of 4 in the movie Reign Over Me. Likewise, Ramona and Beezus, The Kissing Booth, and The In-Between were some of her career highlights. On the other hand, Life In Pieces, The Flash, and Fargo are some of her shows. She also appeared in the sitcom The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Well, the 90s kids do remember the show. Isn’t it fellas?
Oh hey! She was in one of Taylor Swift’s music videos as well. In case you might have forgotten, she was the girl who was an outcast and bullied by her friends in Tay’s song Mean.
Furthermore, the young star has starred alongside another superstar and Taylor’s bestie, Selena Gomez in Ramona and Beezus. The Naturally singer was 16 and Joey was 9 yrs old at the time of the filming of the movie. While they played the reel life sisters, they were inseparable in real life too. She was like a sibling which Selena never had.
Is their relationship the same even today? Well if you’re referring to the nonstop laughter and conversation they used to have back in the days, nope. But if you’re talking about love and respect for one another then it’s a full-on yes, at least for King.
Although time grew them apart, Joey admires her one time onscreen big sister.

However, they are celebrities and are busy in their own lives and we have to understand that.
