In August 2021, the musician confirmed his engagement to Samantha Cope. Joey and Charleston met on the set of a Lifetime movie directed by Joey’s brother Andrew and starring his daughter Charleston. Prior to their marriage, the pair discussed their relationship in an interview, and Cope said,
“It was such a secure environment to be myself from day one.” He adores everything about me and revels in my eccentricities. I consider myself really fortunate to have been in a position to accept such an honor. “After two weeks, I was like, ‘I’ll be with you forever.’”
Lawrence, in the meanwhile, said
“When you meet the right person, if you’re fortunate enough, it gets straight to the point.” I have a friend who is like-minded and speaks the same love language as I do, and we communicate in the same manner. That is really crucial. And I’m grateful.”
