Kit Harington: Game of Thrones star's wife Rose Leslie is pregnant with their first baby

GAME OF Thrones' Kit Harington is expecting his first baby with his co-star wife Rose Leslie.

The 33-year-old actress showed off her growing baby bump for Make magazine as she confirmed the exciting news.

The pair have moved back home to England from the US so that they can raise their child close to their family and friends.

Rose told the publication: "What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup.

"It’s a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It’s so peaceful."

The mum-to-be went on to add that she calls the Tudor manor house in East Anglia "the house that Jon Snow built" – referencing 33-year-old Kit's famous character.

Kit and Rose fell in love after playing short-lived on-screen couple Jon Snow and Ygritte on the fantasy series.

After meeting on set in 2012, the pair got engaged in September 2017 before tying the knot the following year.

Their wedding was at Rose's 12 Century family castle in Scotland, with guests including their Game of Thrones' co-stars such as Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, and Sophie Turner.

While Rose only appeared in two seasons of Game of Thrones, Kit was one of the series' most central characters.


He appeared in every season – with the show's finale airing last year to a mixed reaction from fans.

It was previously revealed that Kit checked into a rehab facility a few weeks before the final was shown, stressing that the ending of Thrones had "really hit him hard".

He entered the luxury Connecticut health retreat Privé-Swiss, where he has been seeking treatment for stress and alcohol, according to Page Six.


A rep for the actor said at the time: "Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues".

No further details regarding Kit's condition were mentioned in the statement.

A one-month stay at the luxury rehab facility costs a whopping £95,000 and Rose was said to be extremely supportive of her husband's decision to get the help he needed.

Kit and Rose's exciting baby news comes shortly after their Game of Thrones' co-star Sophie Turner welcomed her first baby with husband Joe Jonas.
