Actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie

The House Harington just gained another member with Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, the adored couple whose on-screen chemistry blossomed into a real-life romance, welcoming their second baby earthside.

A representative for the Game of Thrones stars confirmed that the pair are officially parents to two under the age of three, the private couple not sharing many details about their newest addition other than that they welcomed a little baby girl.

Following the announcement of their second pregnancy, Kit was interviewed at the premiere of his Apple TV+ series, ‘Extrapolations’ where he shared how he and Rose are preparing their 2-year-old for the upcoming arrival.

“I don’t know if he’s really conceptually understood anything yet… He’s just loving life. My boy loves life. He charges around. I think he’s going to be a great older brother. It’s just really exciting.”

With hearts filled with love, we offer our congratulations to Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, as they embark on this new adventure with their growing family.

Rose Leslie & Kit Harington baby number 2

Actor Kit Harington made the surprise announcement that he and Rose Leslie, his wife and former Game of Thrones costar, are expecting their second baby together.

While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kit was questioned about his family life by Jimmy Fallon and gave the audience some insight into the couple’s 2-year-old son whose life is usually kept private from the public eye. Jokingly, the 36-year-old said that their son is actually “quite smart” adding “which is surprising seeing we’re both actors”.

Kit then went on to say that his little boy is “about to get the shock of his life… which is that he’s about to get a brother or sister.”

After a round of cheers and applause from the audience, Jimmy congratulated the actor asking him “are you excited, are you nervous?” to which Kit responded that he is slightly “terrified” to become a father again. Explaining he goes on to say “you know, with the first baby you’re like walking on clouds and dancing through fields of daisies for nine months — well, the man is anyway. But this time, the reality check comes much shorter. You get practical real quick.”

When asked about how the new big brother-to-be is handling the news, Kit said that he and Rose have been trying different ways to help their firstborn prepare for his new sibling which has included pointing to Rose’s stomach and saying “Mummy’s baby”. Hilariously it seems though that the toddler hasn’t quite been able to grasp the concept just yet as he responds by pointing to his own tummy and saying ‘my baby’.

We are very excited for Jon and Ygritte (ahem) Kit and Rose and the news that they are adding to their family. We wish them and their family all the best.

Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie & Kit Harington are officially parents, welcoming their first wildling together – a baby boy.

The notoriously private couple stepped out this week with their new addition in London; their reps confirming they’re ‘very, very’ happy to have welcomed a son.

Rose confirmed her pregnancy in September last year, with a spectacular photoshoot for UK digital magazine MAKE.

In an interview with The New York Post in October she said, “I am thrilled to be expecting. And I can’t wait to meet the new member of our family!”

The super cute couple married in Scotland in 2018, and dating since 2012. Kit admitted to falling for Rose during filming for the second season of Game of Thrones in Iceland.

“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he told Vogue Italia. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love…”
