Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are expecting their first child. The news was confirmed by the UK’s Make Magazine and Leslie who did a photoshoot with the magazine.

Ursula Lake, the magazine’s fashion editor, took to Instagram and posted pictures of Leslie with a baby bump.

“So wonderful working with the beautiful Rose Leslie for the cover story of @make_magazineuk out now! A very special all woman team photographic shoot capturing Rose at this wonderful time as she prepares for motherhood for the first time!” Lake wrote on the post.

Harington and Leslie played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte respectively during season four of Game of Thrones. While Harington’s character stayed on in the series till the end, Ygritte was killed off at the end of the season.

The couple got engaged in 2017 and tied the knot the following year in Scotland. The wedding was attended by fellow GoT stars including Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Peter Dinklage.

In the meantime, on the work front, Harington will appear next on the MCU’s Eternals as Dane Whitman or Black Knight. The movie is expected to be released in late 2021.

Leslie will be seen next on Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel Death on the Nile. The film will be released later this year.
