If you were a die-hard fan of the TV-series Game of Thrones, you might remember the little thatched house “that Jon Snow built” for the feisty Ygritte in the wilderness. Well, it would seem the house where actors Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington reside is about get a bit fuller. Or so to speak.

In an exclusive feature for the glossy UK magazine, Make, Rose has revealed the couple are expecting their first baby, showing off her baby bump in a stunning Stella McCartney dress.

The couple met in 2012 on the set of Game of Thrones where they starred as onscreen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. They tied the knot in 2018 in Scotland.

The couple have been living in New York where Leslie has been acting in a knock-off of The Good Wife, but they’ve recently bought a home in the peaceful England countryside where they plan to recoup.

In the interview she said filming Game of Thrones was an incredible experience and her role as Ygritte opened many doors for her. She also said she feels very lucky to have a job at the moment as so many don’t due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The star is busy preparing for her upcoming role in Death on the Nile, a film about a detective who investigates the murder of a young heiress on a cruise ship on the Nile River. She’ll be playing Louise, a French maid.
