If your a fan of Game of Thrones than you definitely know who Peter Dinklage is! And now he has some happy news to share — his rep confirms to UsMagazine.com that his wife Erica Schmidt is pregnant with their first child together! Great news!

Peter, 41, was born with achondroplasia, causing dwarfism, and he’s been open and honest about his situation. “When I was younger, definitely, I let it get to me. As an adolescent, I was bitter and angry and I definitely put up these walls,” Peter explains to Today. “But the older you get, you realize you just have to have a sense of humor. You just know that it’s not your problem. It’s theirs.”

Peter is best known for starring in The Station Agent alongside Michelle Williams, as well as for his roles in films like Death at a Funeral and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

We can’t wait to hear more about his soon-to-be baby!
