Lena Headey

Congrats are in order for Queen Cersei!

Lena Headey is expecting her second child. The 41-year-old British actress, who plays Cersei Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones, confirmed the news on Saturday, after being spotted in recent weeks sporting what appeared to be a baby bump.

"I'm happy to confirm that I'm having my second child this summer," Headey, also known for her role in last year's 300: Rise of an Empire,  told People magazine. "I only hope that this announcement can help me to regain some of the privacy I have recently lost to prying photographers and ask that they please respect my privacy and let me enjoy this time."

The father of her child was not revealed. The actress, who has kept mum about her love life, shares a 4-year-old son, Wylie, with ex-husband Peter Loughran.

Headey's baby news comes two months before the season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones, which will air on April 12. It is unclear if and how her pregnancy will affect her character's storyline.
