Baby boy joy for Game of Thrones actress Carice van Houten
Game of Thrones actress Carice van Houten, who plays the red priestess Melisandre in the hit series, has given birth to a baby boy.
Van Houten's manager in the Netherlands, Janey Van Ierland, confirmed the birth of Monte Pearce in Amsterdam.
Ms Van Ierland said Van Houten "had the baby last week and she is doing very well".
Van Houten's partner, Australian actor Guy Pearce, announced the birth with a tongue-in-cheek tweet yesterday, saying: "A cute little package arrived and told us his name's Monte Pearce. We think we're gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?"
Carice has been in the series since its second season.
