When ‘Game of Thrones’ star Carice Van Houtem announced her pregnancy, she already knew what to expect from fans: shadow baby jokes! Click through to see the tons of tweets from loyal ‘GOT’ fans!
Carice Van Houten, 39, got one step ahead of the game when she announced that she was having a baby with husband Guy Pearce on March 19. Game of Thrones‘ Melisandre gave birth to a “shadow baby” on the last season of the show, and she knew that fans were going to freak out that she was having her own…baby that is! Carice told her fans to bring on the shadow baby jokes, and they delivered! Click through for the tweets!
“Ok. I’m ready for your shadow baby jokes,” Carice tweeted, and maybe regretted it immediately after getting a barrage of tweets! A shadow baby, for all you non Game of Thrones fans, is the result of Melisandre and Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) having sex in season 2. Melisandre gives birth to a “shadow,” a dark demon, which goes on to murder a bunch of people. Yeah, that’s definitely not in the birth plan. And of course fans had to joke about this!

Forget (shadow) baby fever. Everyone and their mother are going crazy over the impending premiere of Game of Thrones season 6! The dramatic trailer, set to “Wicked Game,” finally shows footage from the show, which we cannot wait to see! “He’s gone,” the trailer begins. “We’re the only ones who matter and everything they’ve taken from us we’re going to take back — and more.”
In traditional Game of Thrones fashion, the trailer promises gut wrenching war, darkness, chaos, sex, and of course, death. Does anyone ever make it out of this bitter land alive? Though fans were waiting with fingers crossed that Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) would return alive and well, that’s just not happening. Kit revealed that he did film scenes for season 6…just as a corpse. Still, we can’t wait!
HollywoodLifers, help us congratulate Carice and Guy on their “shadow baby” (JK!) in the comments!
