Exciting news for Aussie actor Guy Pearce and girlfriend Carice van Houten as they confirm that they are expecting their first child together.
The Game of Thrones star took to Instagram on Saturday to confirm the news, writing, “Yes. It’s true. Let the shadow baby jokes begin.”
Pearce, 48, is currently playing the lead role in the Aussie series, Jack Irish, while Houten, 39, is gearing up for the highly-anticipated return of GoT on April 24.
Pearce was previously married to Kate Mestitz for 18 years. They had no children together and divorced in 2015.
In an interview back in 2014 he joked about why the couple had remained childless:
“I’m not consistent enough to be a parent – I blow too hot and cold. Kate jokes that we’d end up on the news for throwing a child out of the window,” he said.
