The co-stars turned man and wife got married in 2018 and had announced in September 2020 that they were expecting their first child. The couple’s wedding in 2018 was attended by their co-actors from the TV series including Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and Emilia Clarke.
A photo of the couple had also recently surfaced online wherein Harington held tightly onto Leslie’s hand as she cradled their baby boy in a carrier on her chest.
Leslie had appeared on the cover of ‘Make’ magazine in the UK, which is where she announced the baby news through a monochrome photo of her with the baby bump.
“We chat with Rose about her upcoming role in Death on the Nile, her lockdown experience, and more. Not many people can pull off a Stella McCartney floor-length silk frock and a fashion shoot when expecting a baby but Rose showed no sign of fatigue on our world exclusive fashion shoot for the latest issue of Make,” the magazine had shared at the time.
Back when she was pregnant, Leslie, who played the role of Ygritte on the HBO fantasy series, spoke about impending parenthood to The Post. The actor said, “I am thrilled to be expecting, and I can’t wait to meet the new member of our family!”
Leslie starred opposite Harington’s Jon Snow on “Game of Thrones” from 2012 to 2014.
