Game of Thrones actors Kit Harington, Rose Leslie welcome baby boy

LONDON: Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have welcomed a baby boy, their first child together.

Harington’s publicist Marianna Shafran confirmed the birth on Tuesday, saying Harington and Leslie are “very very happy!” No further details were given and they are yet to announce the name of the new arrival.

This is the first child for both the 34-year-old Scottish actor Leslie and the 34-year-old English actor Harington who married in 2018 in a lavish ceremony in Scotland.

The co-stars celebrated their two-year wedding last summer after tying the knot in 2018. Their co-stars, including Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), were in attendance.

They made their red carpet debut in 2016 at the Olivier Awards in London and confirmed their engagement in a newspaper announcement in 2017.

They announced in September last year that they were expecting the child. Their relationship began in 2011 on the set of Game of Thrones where they played star-crossed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte.
