And Game of Thrones star Gemma Whelan was an amazing mum as she stepped out with her bundle of joy in London’s Soho on Friday afternoon.

The 41-year-old actress, who played Yara Greyjoy in the fantasy series, beamed as she cuddled her toddler, who looked adorable in a pink and purple T-shirt.

Gemma cut a casual figure in navy and gold spotted leggings, which she teamed with a short-sleeved white shirt.

She completed her look with comfy trainers and styled her blonde hair into braids and opted for natural make-up to show off her beautiful features.

The beauty held her giggling baby and looked cozy in the colorful outfit during the outing.

Gemma welcomed her son last summer and before that her daughter Frances in October 2017.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain in 2019 on Gemma, the 37-year-old recalled how she had to nurse the baby on set between takes while filming the final episodes for Game of Thrones season 8.

She said: “She came on set with me for the whole thing. I nursed her between the two when I took breaks.

“I was tied up [to her costume]. It’s hard to get in [her costume]!’

She also recalled watching Season 1 of the fantasy epic before auditioning for the role of Yara, who appeared on the show after Season 2 in 2012.

Last year, Gemma revealed that the actors were “left to fend for themselves” while filming “crazy” sex scenes in Game of Thrones.

She explained: “They used to just say, ‘When we call for action, give it!’, and it can be kind of a mad dash.”

“A director might say, ‘A little tit-biting, then kick her ass and go!’

However, the star insisted that the actors would always “check with each other” before filming sex scenes.

She said The Guardian: “There was a scene in a brothel with a woman and she was so exposed that we talked together about where the camera would be and what she was happy with. I would always discuss it with the other actor.

MailOnline then contacted HBO for comment.

Gemma’s bisexual character Yara is often involved in raunchy scenes, most famously with her on-screen brother Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy).
