“Carice and Guy are thrilled to be expecting their first child,” a representative of Houten said, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Carice took to Twitter to share the news and in an inside joke with her Game of Thrones fans said: “Ok. I’m ready for your shadowbaby jokes.”

In case you are scratching your heads, wondering what she is talking about, watch this:
This was a famous scene from Game of Thrones where Carice’s character gives birth to a ‘shadowbaby’ through some sort of black magic and goes on to kill a king.
Pearce, 48, was previously married to Kate Mestitz. He announced their separation in October 2015 after 18 years of marriage.
Then he was romantically linked to Houten, 39, after they were spotted going out together numerous times in the last few months.
The new couple was last seen spending Valentine’s Day together here last month.
