Lena Headey, best known for her role as Cersei Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, is expecting her second child.
The actress, 41, confirmed to PEOPLE, that the baby is on the way. “I’m happy to confirm that I’m having my second child this summer,” she said, “I only hope that this announcement can help me to regain some of the privacy I have recently lost to prying photographers and ask that they please respect my privacy and let me enjoy this time.”
Lena Headey and ex-husband Peter Loughran previously welcomed son Wylie. Her first child turns five-years-old next month.
In the meantime, the Emmy nominated actress will reprise her role in the Game of Thrones season five. The show returns on April 12.
