Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, his wife, are one of Hollywood’s most secretive couples. They are not active on social media and rarely discuss their personal lives. Rose, on the other hand, announced in September 2020 that she and Harington were expecting a child.
An insider told People a few months later, in February, that the couple had given birth to their baby boy on Valentine’s Day. The couple did not announce the birth, but they did confirm it on February 16 when they walked out in London with their newborn. The couple’s agent informed the outlet that they were overjoyed.
The couple, on the other hand, has never revealed their baby’s name or permitted him to be photographed. Despite this, the Game of Thrones star has revealed some unusual details about his life as a first-time father.
Harington was open in an interview with The Guardian about a feature his son acquired that made him “terrified.”
Kit Harington Discusses His Son and His One-Of-A-Kind Character
He suggested his youngster might have acquired his passion for limelight and adulation while speaking to the media about it.
The actor admitted that as an actor, he was a “show-off” who thrived on attention, which fueled his alcoholism. When the final season of Game of Thrones aired in 2019, Harington went to treatment to receive therapy for his addiction. He explained that when he stood on stage and was cheered, he felt a rush of adrenaline and a high, but the problem was that he didn’t want to come down from it.
Regrettably, the actor fears that his son will be much like him.
“I’ve found that my tiny son enjoys applause.” He’ll do it since he’s the son of two actors, right? But he expects applause for everything he does. It’s terrifying both for me and Rose. That has anything to do with it. “I think I was a braggart, but he’s the same,” Harington replied, mockingly.
The actor has been sober for nearly three years, and he credits his early recovery to the fact that he began before the birth of his child.
Parenthood as seen through the eyes of Kit Harington
According to her, Harington is much more grounded these days and is concentrating on raising his child. During an interview with Access Hollywood’s Zuri Hall, he discussed motherhood. On Access Hollywood, Kit Harrington discusses fatherhood and his son.
Despite hearing all kinds of things about raising a child, he admitted that he was nonetheless startled by some aspects of it.
“They tell you and they don’t tell you,” says the narrator. ‘Look, it’s big, what you’re about to go through is big,’ everyone says. You will have no way of knowing until it occurs. Then you realize, ‘Oh, this goes on forever,'” the actor explained of parenting a child.
He went on to say that becoming a parent was a lifetime commitment from which one never got a break. Every day, the actor said, he would wake up and tend after the young human, knowing they were part of a unit. It had previously been just him and his wife, but now there were three of them, which required some acclimating. Regardless, he found it beautiful to watch his child grow and change every day.
