In June, Kit Harington was put on a spot by Nicole Kidman, who asked if he and girlfriend Rose Leslie were going to get married, since they had moved in together.

Well, it's happening, Nicole. Kit and Rose are definitely engaged! An announcement was published in the Times newspaper as saying "The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire."

Kit and Rose met on the set of Game of Thrones and were romantically linked in 2012 before they finally stepped out as a couple at the 2016 Olivier Awards in April.

In May, Kit revealed more about their relationship in an interview.

"The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he said. He plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, while Rose played Ygritte, Jon's late love interest. "If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it's becomes very easy to fall in love…"

Congratulations to the beautiful couple! (When's the wedding? Can we come? We won't dress up as Game of Thrones characters, we promise. And we'll even keep the White Walkers away.)
