Guy Pearce and Carice van Houten have welcomed their first child together

Guy and Carice announced that they were expecting a child together back in March, sharing a few light-hearted tweets that referred to her sinister GOT character.

"Yes, it's true. Let the shadowbaby jokes begin," the 39-year-old actress teased on Twitter, while Guy, 48, wrote: "Nothing like a shadowbaby to change your mind about becoming a father!!"

"Almost don't fit the mirror anymore..."

Baby Monte is the first child for both Carice and Guy, who was previously married to psychologist Kate Mestitz from 1997 until 2015.

The Dutch actress has been keeping her followers up-to-date throughout her pregnancy. In July, she posted a mirror selfie, in which she showed off her baby bump, along with the caption: "Almost don't fit the mirror anymore @TheGuyPearce."

Another image shows her looking unimpressed while holding a gift from her mum. "You know you're seriously pregnant when you mother starts buying you a 'grabber'," she wrote alongside.

Her partner, meanwhile, is famous for movies including LA Confidential, Memento and Iron Man 3. Before hitting the big time in Hollywood, he starred as Mike Young in Australian soap Neighbours, from 1986 until 1989.
