Kit Harington & Rose Leslie are expecting a Baby!
Our favorite couple from Game of Thrones, Jon Snow and Ygritte are expecting a baby! Not in Westeros, of course. Because sadly, Ygritte died there in Lord Snow’s arms. In fact, we’re talking about real life. Kit Harington, aged 33, and Rose Leslie, also aged 33 are finally having a baby!
Rose Leslie revealed the news by posing with her baby bump in a cover story photoshoot for the UK Make Magazine, published last Saturday. And it’s a lovely landmark in their already Hollywood love story.
Harington and Leslie met in 2012 while working on Game of Thrones. Unironically, the two played the fan-favorite couple of Jon Snow and Ygritte. However, their on-screen love story ended in season 5 in the episode, “The Watchers on the Wall”. However, that did not stop them from maintaining their love life off the screen. They got married back in 2018 and knew from the start that they might end up together. Kit Harington had this to say about their relationship:
We really get on as friends and we hit it off very quickly when we first met. And I think that reflects on screen, because we’ve got a good dialogue going on off screen.
Harington and Leslie kept their relationship largely secret
Kit Harington kept his relationship with Rosie Leslie a secret for quite a long time. But, speculation began when the two were found holding hands back in 2012. Then, there were also rumors about them breaking up! Back in 2015, Harington called himself single in an interview with GQ. However, the couple officially made it public back in 2016 on the red carpet at the Olivier Awards in April 2016. Later on, they officially got engaged in 2017 and then married in 2018 at a star-studded wedding ceremony at 900-year-old Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Since then, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie were also quite excited about having a baby, as Harington told GQ Australia that he would be excited for his child to see his parents fall in love on-screen while watching Game of Thrones:
I have no idea if we will, but say me and Rose do have children. They’ll know. They’ll be able to see the genesis of their parents getting together. Which is quite a wonderful thought, really.
Well, now they’re set to have a child. Let’s just hope that when the baby grows up, he doesn’t see that scene in the cave.
