In February, Harington, 34, and his wife and costar, Rose Leslie, had welcomed their first baby.
On The Tonight Show this past Thursday, Harington spoke about fatherhood, speaking about their “lovely” 6-month-old and his “gorgeous stage.” He also spoke to other people’s “useless” parenting advice.
“So much advice. Anyone who’s a parent will know, you get so much advice leading up to it,” Harington admitted to Jimmy Fallon. “And it’s all useless. It’s all useless. It’s stuff like, ‘It’s gonna be great, you’re gonna love it, what a wonderful thing.’ “
“No one tells you that essentially, at first anyway, what it is is you get a new roommate just dumped into your life who you’ve not interviewed,” he joked, “who doesn’t know any of your house rules, and then you fall in love with him so you can’t kick him out. That’s basically parenting, I think.”
Harington said his little boy “respects” Leslie, meanwhile, he’ll do “anything” to make his son laugh, including dancing for him while listening to The Beatles, which Harington then, of course, performed.
“In the future, I know he’s gonna mock me about it, and I’ll be like, ‘It’s your fault,’ ” the actor said of his “dad dance.”
Kit and Rose, who met on the set of Game of Thrones, married in 2018, and this past year, became parents to a baby boy.
A representative for Kit confirmed to E! News that Rose had given birth after the couple was spotted in London with their baby in a carrier.
And while the pair has yet to reveal their son’s name, the rep did say they were “very, very happy” to be new parents. Now, Kit is sharing a peek into his world as a father, speaking to Access Hollywood in an interview published this past weekend.
“You know, they tell you, but they don’t tell you,” the Kit said. “Everyone goes, ‘Look, it’s big. What you’re about to go through is big.’ And you have no way of knowing that until it happens.”
He continued, saying: “What surprises you, is you go, ‘Oh, this goes on forever! You don’t get a break from it!’ … Every day I wake up and I look after this little human. And now we’re part of a unit together.”
