The Dutch actress, 39, plays Melisandre on HBO's "Game of Thrones."

Pearce, 48, is known for his work in the films "Memento" and "L.A. Confidential."

"Carice and Guy are thrilled to be expecting their first child," van Houten's publicist told The Hollywood Reporter.

The baby's gender and anticipated birthdate were not revealed.

Pearce announced last October that he and his wife, Kate Mestitz, had split up after 18 years of marriage.
