Game Of Thrones actress Lena Headey has confirmed that she is expecting her second child. Speculation that Lena was pregnant began when she was photographed with bump last week – something she was unsurprisingly not so happy about.
Confirming her pregnancy to People magazine, Lena said that she hoped she could have her privacy back: “I’m happy to confirm that I’m having my second child this summer. I only hope that this announcement can help me to regain some of the privacy I have recently lost to prying photographers and ask that they please respect my privacy and let me enjoy this time.”
Lena, who plays Cersei Lannister in the hit HBO show, is thought to be dating her former co-star, Pedro Pascal since last year– though this has not been confirmed by either party.
Lena is already a mum to five-year-old Wylie with her ex-husband Peter Loughran. The couple divorced in 2013.
Congratulations to Lena on this wonderful news – we’re sure little Wylie is really excited! We really hope the paparazzi respect her desire to be left alone to enjoy this happy time in her family.
