Move over, Khaleesi, Rose Leslie is Kit Harington’s one true love!
After five years of dating, sources claim that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are finally engaged.
“They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged,” a source told The Sun. “Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first.”
The news on the Game of Thrones co-stars’ engagement come just three months after they revealed they’ve moved in together, having bought a $2.35 million house in East Anglia.
“I’ve moved in with my other best friend, Rose,” Kit told James Corden. “I’m very, very happy and it’s going well. She has all sorts of ideas for the house.”
He added: “I said to her—because she’s moved into my house, ‘Look darling, it’s important that this is our space. That it feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out.’”
And after moving in together in January, according to the anonymous source, “he felt it was the right time to take the next step,” a.k.a. walking down the aisle.
Leslie and Harington, both 30, met on set while playing Jon Snow, rightful heir of the Iron Throne, and his love interest, Ygritte, woman of the Free Folk, respectively. Their on-screen romance that sparked a thousand memes (like the “You know nothing, Jon Snow” circa), eventually turned into a real-life romance.
“If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love,” Kit said in a cover story for L’Uomo Vogue.
Looks like Jon Snow actually does know a thing or two about love!
Congrats to the beyond-the-wall lovebirds!
