Carice van Houten is a mum! The Game of Thrones actress and her boyfriend, actor Guy Pearce, welcomed a son named Monte on Monday in Amsterdam, where she's originally from. Guy joked about the news on Twitter, writing, "A cute little package arrived and told us his name's Monte Pearce. We think we're gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone? @caricevhouten" (Carice responded with a flurry of new mum-themed emoji). Although it's unclear when Guy and Carice officially started dating, the pair was spotted out and about a few times over the last few months, and announced they were expecting their first child together in March. Since then, they've had a blast joking about Carice's pregnancy on social media, especially when it concerns references to Carice's character on Game of Thrones, Melisandre:
