Game of Thrones' Melisandre is pregnant
Carice van Houten, aka Melisandre from Game of Thrones, is expecting her first child with actor Guy Pearce
Let the shadow baby jokes begin!
Thankfully actress Carice was prepared for the onslaught of ‘shadow baby’ jokes to come her way, referring to a scene on a previous season of Game of Thrones where her character gives birth to a dark magic shadow monster, as she referred to it on social media after the announcement.
Ok. I'm ready for your shadowbaby jokes.— Carice van Houten (@caricevhouten) March 19, 2016
Dutch-born Carice, 39, and Guy, 48 from Australia were both on set filming the movie Brimstone together last year.
Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
Nothing like the prospect of a shadowbaby to change your mind about becoming a Father !! https://t.co/JRjL6YISbl— Guy Pearce (@TheGuyPearce) March 19, 2016
