Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey Is Going to Have a Baby Girl!
The real-life counterpart of Game of Thrones’ most ruthless mom, pregnant actress Lena Headey, has announced that she’s going to have a little princess. How adorable! But, the thoughtful thespian didn’t share the news with the world with an Instagram post or statement from her publicist. Instead she took to the Plan International USA, an organization that works in developing countries to end poverty for children.
In a guest blog titled "My Daughter," which she hopes will bring “much-needed awareness and funds” to Plan, Lena lists the rights and freedoms her unborn baby will be able to enjoy simply because of where she was born. "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,” she writes. Lena also touches on the smaller things she and her daughter have the option of doing like wearing whatever they like and putting on lipstick.
But, Lena notes that not every women enjoys such choices and hopes to give them a voice. “The inequality that is all too prevalent all over the world is so great and so frightening,” she says. “We owe it to our sisters who have no voice, and no chance to be heard, to speak up.”
What a beautiful way of speaking up, Lena!
The HBO star will have her daughter, whose name has not yet been revealed, in six weeks. She has rightfully chosen not to discuss the identity of her baby's father, as did Mad Men actress January Jones. We do know, however, that Lena’s little girl will already have an amazing big brother in the actress’ 4-year-old son Wylie.
