Kit Harington is preparing to welcome his second baby with wife Rose Leslie, and he is already looking ahead to what his kids' future will look like.

The actor is the star of an upcoming Apple TV+ series, Extrapolations, which details different interwoven stories in the near future about how climate change is already impacting people's lives, and has made him think about how the changing environment will impact his own childrens' future.

The star and his wife met while they were co-stars on Game of Thrones, and tied the knot in 2018. Though they keep their family life largely out of the public eye, Rose was spotted with a pregnancy bump back in September of 2020, and the couple were seen out with their first baby, a son, in February of 2021. You can get a glimpse of their stunning wedding in the video below.
