Lena Headey welcomed a daughter into the world. The Game of Thrones actress revealed that she instantly took the baby into her heart, reported People.
“Hello peeps. All good,” tweeted the mom of two. “Just fallen in unconditional heartbreaking divine love for the second time.”
Lena revealed her pregnancy in February and requested privacy. Headey waited until May to reveal that she was having a daughter, turning her 5-year-old son Wylie into a big brother.
As part of her baby girl announcement, the Game Of Thrones star also shared her passion for women’s rights.
“I am having a baby girl in six weeks. You have all been so lovely in your message to me, and I thank you for that. My daughter will have freedom of choice. She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman.”
Lena’s son was fathered by her ex-husband, Peter Loughran, reported E! News.
Headey revealed that the divorce was heart-breaking.
“There’s a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief,” mused the actress. “It’s a mourning process, and yet nobody’s died.”
The father of her daughter has not been named.
As the Inquisitr reported, singer Sophie Hawkins also just had a baby girl at 50. The mom of a son as well, Sophie also opted not to reveal the father of her new daughter.
As for her career, Lena is diving into the cartoon world. She and John Oliver will voice characters in Danger Mouse from the BBC, reported Variety.
The talk show host will voice wacky wolf scientist Dr. Augustus P. Crumhorn III. Listen for Headey as the nostalgic voice of U.S. Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse. Both Lena and John expressed their delight in starring in Danger Mouse, set for autumn on CBBC (the BBC channel for children).
“I’ve loved ‘Danger Mouse’ my whole life. ‘Danger Mouse’ was a significant part of my childhood. So to get a chance to do it is like getting a chance to step into your childhood, which is both a magical and a potentially hazardous thing,” said Oliver.
Lena shared that as a mother, participating in a cartoon show is especially meaningful.
“I wanted to do it (Danger Mouse) because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now, and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it,” said the Game of Thrones actress.
