AceShowbiz - Peter Dinklage and his wife, Erica Schmidt, reportedly have a new addition to their family. The "Game of Thrones" star and his wife of 12 years welcomed their second child together, Us Weekly reported.
The couple, who is known for being notoriously secret about the private lives, didn't publicly confirm their pregnancy. Schmidt previously was seen sporting growing baby bump during their appearance at the premiere of The New Group's "All the Fine Boys", an off-Broadway play she wrote and directed, back in March.
The 48-year-old actor and his wife also opted to keep the details of their newborn baby, including the name and gender, tightly in wraps. However, the site revealed that they were spotted with their new baby at a concert last month.
Dinklage and Schmidt married in Las Vegas in 2005. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter, in 2001. Though the couple hasn't yet revealed their daughter's name, they talked about the baby girl during an interview at the Golden Globe Awards in 2012.
The Tyrion Lannister depicter, who was joined by Schmidt on the red carpet, revealed at that time that it was the first time he and Erica had left their daughter with a babysitter. Dinklage, who won Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film award at the award-giving event for his role on the HBO series, joked, "Everything's fine-so far. She's a baby. Crying never killed anyone. Well, maybe that's not true."
Dinklage previously addressed the alarming trend within "Game of Thrones" fans of adopting huskies only to abandon them when the novelty wears off. "Please, to all 'Game of Thrones' many wonderful fans, we understand that due to the direwolves' huge popularity, many folks are going out and buying huskies," Peter said in a statement. "Not only does this hurt all the wonderful homeless dogs waiting for a chance at a good home in shelters, but shelters are reporting that huskies are being abandoned as often happens when dogs are bought on impulse, without understanding the dog's needs."
