Well, it appears Jon Snow did know something after all. Or, at least, the actor who portrayed him for eight seasons on HBO did.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who portrayed Jon Snow and his on-screen love interest Ygritte in Seasons 2-4 of the show, are expecting their first child together. The pair, who wed in 2018, quietly confirmed the news in Leslie’s latest interview in the U.K.’s Make Magazine.

Leslie was photographed showing off her growing baby bump for the magazine’s spread, and while she didn’t discuss the pregnancy and new baby in the interview, she did admit that the life they have settled into since the show came to an end has been one that has been serene—likely making the process as she prepares for motherhood one she finds easier.

“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 out delightful neighbours,” she said. “It’s so peaceful.”

The pair did not confirm whether they were expecting a son or a daughter and have not revealed a due date. However, if their baby arrives this year, it will be the second one born to a “Game of Thrones” alum this year—and will also be joining the extended Stark clan.

Harington’s on-screen half-sister, Sansa Stark, was portrayed by Sophie Turner on all eight seasons of the show as well, and she also welcomed her first child with husband Joe Jonas earlier this year. They had their daughter, reportedly named Willa, in July.

The couple did not reveal why they chose the name, though it notably also had some reference back to the show that made Turner famous. The name appeared on the show briefly in Season 1 as Jon Snow’s alleged mother and was also brought back in the form of two other minor characters in later seasons.
