Congratulations are in order for Game of Thrones star Carice van Houten and her partner Guy Pearce! The couple just welcomed their first child, a boy named Monte Pearce.

"A cute little package arrived and told us his name's Monte Pearce. We think we're gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?" Pearce wrote on Twitter on Monday, Aug. 29.

Van Houten replied with a series of emojis representing her rollercoaster of emotions, from a baby boy to a pile of poop and even a martini.

The 39-year-old star announced her pregnancy in the best way: with a Game of Thrones reference. The actress, whose character Melisandre gave birth to a murderous shadow demon on the show, revealed that she is expecting with an appropriate Tweet: "Ok, I'm ready for your shadowbaby jokes."

Pearce chimed in with a similar, hilarious response. "Nothing like the prospect of a shadowbaby to change your mind about becoming a Father !!" the 48-year-old wrote.

We imagine Houten's new addition will be nothing like her onscreen spawn. Congratulations to the happy family.
