“Game of Thrones” Stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie Welcome Their Second Child
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have a daughter! On July 3, a rep for the couple confirmed to POPSUGAR that they have welcomed their second child, a baby girl. “They’re delighted to have welcomed a little girl into the family,” the couple’s rep said. Page Six was the first to report the news.
Harington and Leslie’s baby girl joins the couple’s son, whom they welcomed in 2021. The “Game of Thrones” alums have been diligent about keeping their son out of the public eye. The couple haven’t shared his name or any photos, but Harington did reveal that his son wasn’t sure what becoming a big brother meant during a February appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
“He’s about to get the shock of his life,” Harington told Fallon. “Which is that he’s about to get a brother or sister. I’m not sure he’s quite conceptually understood it just yet. We’re trying to get him ready for it. We point to Rose’s tummy and say, ‘Mummy’s baby, mummy’s baby.’ And he points at his tummy and goes, ‘My baby.'”
Harington and Leslie first met on the “Game of Thrones” set where they played doomed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Rumors began circulating that they were dating in 2012, and they went on to officially confirm the news in 2016. In 2018, the happy couple said “I do” in Scotland surrounded by their family, friends, and several members of the “Game of Thrones” cast.
