‘It’s a beautiful thing’: Kit Harington gives a rare insight into fatherhood and compares having a child to caring for a pet in candid chat
He welcomed his first child, a baby boy, with wife Rose Leslie in February this year.
And Kit Harington, 34, gave a rare insight into fatherhood as he admitted that although it’s been ‘beautiful’, it hasn’t been all smooth sailing, as he didn’t consider there’s no ‘break’ from parenthood.
Full on: Kit Harington, 34, revealed to Access Hollywood on Sunday that he didn’t realise there’s no ‘break’ from parenthood
The star didn’t understand just how big the journey through fatherhood was until he embarked on it himself.
‘Everyone goes, “Look, it’s big what you’re about to go through.” You have no way of knowing that until it happens.’
He said: ‘Every day, I wake up and I look after this little human and now we’re part of a unit together.’
‘I think the thing that surprises me most about fatherhood is you are now a unit, the three of you, and that’s a whole new dynamic you need to find.’

Kit added: ‘I pretty much find every day as he grows and changes, how does that change you? It’s a beautiful thing, it really is.’
The new dad-of-one also compared looking after a baby to that of looking after a pet.
‘I had a puppy in the year leading up to my son’s birth and it’s not so different.’
The star joked: ‘It’s great practice, is all I can say.’
