Lena Headey ‘welcomes daughter’

Lena Headey has apparently given birth to her baby daughter, after tweeting that she has “fallen in unconditional heartbreaking divine love for the second time”.

While the 41-year-old actress has not confirmed the happy news in as many words, she posted a message on her Twitter page on Friday that appeared to hint at the new arrival.

“Hello peeps . All good. Just fallen in unconditional heartbreaking divine love for the second time,” Lena wrote on her Twitter page.

And fans were quick to assume the best, replying to the Game of Thrones actress with messages of congratulations.

Lena revealed that she was expecting her second child back in February, but has not commented on the identity of the baby’s father.

The actress, who plays Cersei Lannister on hit HBO show Game of Thrones, is already mother to five-year-old son Wylie with ex-husband Peter Loughran.

“I’m happy to confirm that I’m having my second child this summer,” she revealed in a statement released to People magazine.

The star has asked the media to take it easy on her as she prepares to give birth.

“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 wrote.

The actress divorced from musician Peter in 2013 after being married since May 2007 and she has since remained mum on her personal affairs.

In the newest season of Game of Thrones,

This season Lena’s role has become substantially more important following the deaths of her husband and father. As her son King Tommen Baratheon, played by Dean Charles Chapman, isn’t old enough to rule on his own, Cersei finds herself in a position of power.

“She thinks she’s found an influential power group to join and manipulate, but she invests in the wrong people,” Lena explained. “She just has too much hatred for certain people, so she doesn’t help her cause.”
