Kit Harington on fatherhood

Kit and his wife Rose Leslie welcomed their son in February 2021, and the couple is thrilled to have him in their lives.

While appearing on Jimmy Fallon's show, he said that their son is on a gorgeous little stage. 

He jokingly added that it all came about because he and his wife Rose went into the pandemic and got into sort of apocalyptic and romantic, not knowing how long it was going to last, and then they got a baby. 

The sort of parenting advice like You're going to do great, you're going to love it, what a wonderful thing, etc., are all useless, he said. 

But essentially, what it is, is like a new roommate just dumped into your life who you've not interviewed and who doesn't know any of the house rules and breaks all your house rules. 

And then you fall in love with him because you can't kick him out. That's parenting, he added.

When asked about the best part about his son, Kit replied to say that it is his bright smile. 

When Kit goes in the morning, his son has a bright smile on his face, and he will be already chuckling when he walks in the door, which just dismantles any plan he had for that day. 

Talking about the parenting styles, he said he seems to be a sheer entertainer and does anything to make his son laugh, while Rose seems to respect and love and like she's his safe place.

During an interview with Access Hollywood's Zuri Hall, Kit shared that what surprised him the most about fatherhood is that they tell you, but they don't tell you as everyone goes, It's big.

What you are about to go through is big. And you have no way of knowing that until it happens, and then what surprises you is, Oh, this goes on forever and that you won't get a break from it, he added.

The thing that surprises him about fatherhood is that they are now a unit of three, and that's the whole new dynamic he needs to find, which he says he pretty much finds every day as his son grows and changes, and how does that change him and it's a beautiful thing, he further added.
