Jon Snow and Ygritte didn’t make it as a couple on Game of Thrones, but actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are becoming parents!
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie met on the set of Game of Thrones, where he was playing the taciturn Night’s Watchmen Jon Snow and she the fierce wildling woman Ygritte. Their love affair ended in tragedy, but Harington and Leslie ended up getting married in 2018, and now, Leslie has revealed that the couple are expecting their first child.
Leslie and Harington haven’t actually formally announced the happy news, but Leslie appeared, baby bump and all, in a photo spread for the upcoming issue of Make magazine, which gets the message across:
Speaking to Make, Leslie says that she and Harington have recently moved to an “incredibly old” Tudor manor house in East Anglia. “What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup,” she said. “It’s a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It’s so peaceful.”
As a father myself, if I could give Harington any fatherly advice, it would be to remember that he really does know nothing. Regardless, we wish the couple good fortune in the wars to come…err, parenting.
Harington and Leslie are not the only Thrones alum becoming parents. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (Gregor “the Mountain” Clegane) just welcomed a baby boy with his wife Kelsey Henson:
And Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) just showed off some of her pregnancy pics from before her daughter with husband Joe Jonas was born. Congratulations to everyone!
