When "Game of Thrones" storms Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con later today, a few key faces will be missing. You can speculate all you want over Kit Harington's absence (Jon Snow is "dead," remember?), but there's a really good reason Lena Headey won't be there to grace us with her presence: she's too busy giving birth!
The Mother of Tiny Humans posted a telling message on Twitter today (July 10) that alluded to her welcoming her second child, a baby girl.
Headey is already the mother of a five-year-old son named Wylie with her ex-husband Peter Loughran.
Whatever ill will you feel towards Cersei Lannister, you can't deny that she's a fierce mom who would do anything to protect her children. Like Cersei, Headey is also one badass mom. The actress recently spoke up about what she hopes her baby daughter's life will be like, and her words were honestly so heartfelt and awesome.
"My daughter will have freedom of choice," she wrote for Plan International USA, a humanitarian organization that helps needy children around the globe. "She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman."
Headey continued, "She’ll be able to wear what she wants, put on lipstick, and read books that spark debate and expand her mind. She will be loved, protected, respected, and celebrated."
She concluded with a modest plea for us to ensure these rights are passed on to future generations. "All these things that should be, and will be, basic human rights, are a promise to my daughter," she wrote. "My humble request is that you give what you can and maybe -- just maybe -- we can bring about the change we all wish to see."
If only the same applied to the daughters of Westeros. Maybe Cersei can start the first chapter of the Westeros Women's Rights Movement in season 6? Just a thought.
Congrats to the Headey family!
