Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie expecting first child

Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are set to welcome their first child together.

The Aberdeen-born actress, 33, shared the news in her latest photo-shoot with Make magazine, where she revealed her blossoming baby bump.

The actress married Kit in 2018 in her family’s 12th century family castle in Aberdeenshire in a star-studded wedding.

Their Game Of Thrones co-stars, including Scottish actor Richard Madden, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Emilia Clarke were guests.

Rose and Kit famously played star-crossed lovers on the hugely popular TV series Game Of Thrones.

Kit, 33, played Jon Snow while Rose took on the role of Ygritte on the Emmy-winning HBO series.

Rumours first circulated that the duo were dating in back 2012.

But the pair split for some time before reconciling and confirming they were in a relationship in 2016.

Kit then popped the question the following year in September 2017.

The pair announced their engagement the old-fashioned way by putting a classified advert in The Times newspaper.

In the new Make interview, Rose opened up about her time on Game of Thrones.

The duo spend most of their time at their Tudor manor house in East Anglia.

Revealing all about their historical abode, Rose shared: “It’s incredibly old. We have a thatched roof, which currently has an enormous hornet’s nest in it.

“I do love to think about the house and all the people who have lived there.

“Were they happy, how did they live? All the families passing under those ancient beams.

“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.”

Two years after they met, Leslie left  Game Of Thrones  , while Harington has become one of the show’s most popular stars and has appeared in every episode.

Speaking to L’Uomo Vogue, Harington said it was “easy” to fall in love with Leslie and his best memory of the show was meeting his future partner while filming in Iceland in 2012.

“The country is beautiful … the Northern Lights are magical … it was there that I fell in love,” he said.

“If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
