We extend our heartiest congratulations to Harington and Leslie on their plans for family expansion.

Leslie, 33, also opened up to the magazine about spending quality time with Harington in their Tudor manor house in East Anglia, which she jokingly refers to as, "the house that Jon Snow built." "It is incredibly old. We have a thatched roof, which currently has an enormous hornet's nest in it," she said, adding that the surroundings are "so peaceful."
Harington and Leslie popularly played the roles of star-crossed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. The couple first stirred up dating rumors in 2012. After dating for five years, the two got engaged in September 2017, and finally tied the knot in Scotland in June 2018.
Separately, Harington was last seen in the second season of British show Criminal:UK. His next project is Marvel superhero film The Eternals, where he is playing the role of Dane Whitman or Black Knight. Leslie, on the other hand, is part of the star cast for Death on the Nile. The Kenneth Branagh-directorial is set to arrive in US/UK theaters on December 18 this year.
