A wedding is coming...

Game of Thrones co-stars and real-life couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have taken the next step in their relationship by getting engaged. BBC published the couple's official announcement in The Times paper. 

"The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harrington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire," it read. 

The duo, who first sparked romance rumors all the way back in the summer of 2014, has tried to keep their relationship relatively private. 

Ultimately, Game of Thrones fans couldn't help but witness the chemistry between Jon Snow and Ygritte on and off the small screen. The pair made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Olivier Awards in April 2016 and have been going strong since then.

During an interview with Vogue Italia, Kit reminisced about how the two fell in love with one another while filming the HBO series. In fact, he called his time shooting season two in Iceland one of his favorite show memories.

"Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he told the publication. "If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it's becomes very easy to fall in love."

As for being able to work together for so many years, it's just an added bonus for a pair who has managed to keep their romance strong away from the public eye.

"I think that's the really special thing about it is that we met on this show and here we are seven years down the line back here promoting season seven," Kit shared with the Daily Telegraph. "I mean it's mad. It's such a special thing. I'm so privileged."

In June, Kit appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and explained he'd recently moved in with Rose. Without hesitation, Nicole Kidman asked when he planned to get married to the beauty. The coy actor simply said the duo was taking things "step by step."

Hey Nicole, you were totally onto something. Congratulations to the couple on their joyous news. The game of love now has two big winners!
