Congratulations are in order as Carice van Houten has welcomed her first child with her partner, Guy Pearce.



The acting duo have become parents for the first time as Guy announced the good news on social media.


“A cute little package arrived and told us his name’s Monte Pearce”.



The actress who plays Melisandre on HBO hit Game of Thrones, announced the news back in March as she readied herself for all sorts of GoT jokes.


“Ok. I’m ready for your shadowbaby jokes.”




Almost don't fit the mirror anymore..

While Guy joked about becoming a dad to a magical child.


“Nothing like the prospect of a shadowbaby to change your mind about becoming a father!!”



SHARE your well-wishes with the pair.
