It’s a boy for “Game of Thrones” star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson and Kelsey Henson!
Kelsey shared the happy news on Instagram, writing, “Our beautiful baby boy made his grand entrance into the world at 11:19 AM on September 26th 2020 after a short and intense six hours. 3530 grams (7 lbs. 7 oz.) and 52 cm. The birth was the most powerful, life changing, empowering thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. We are all doing well and settling in at home as three!”
Hafþór also praised his wife, revealing on Instagram that her water broke around 6 a.m., and by 9 a.m. they were at the birthing center. He explained, “She was in the tub and immediately started to push. Things escalated super quickly. Throughout it all she did amazing. She was in complete control of her mind and body. She had strong opinions on exactly what she wanted and where she wanted to be. I am completely in awe of how strong she is, and so proud of her for everything she did to prepare herself throughout her pregnancy. It cannot be put into words how proud I am and how I feel about this experience.”
Björnsson is also excited to introduce his newborn to his daughter, Theresa Líf, from a previous relationship. He wrote, “To finish the most beautiful, awe inspiring labour was the most wonderful phone call to my daughter to introduce her to her new little brother.”
Hafþór, who played Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on “GoT,” and Kelsey were first linked in 2017, and tied the knot in Iceland in October 2018. This is their first child together.
