Game Of Thrones actress Carice van Houten, who plays the red priestess Melisandre in the hit series, has given birth to a baby boy.

Van Houten's manager in the Netherlands, Janey van Ierland, confirmed the birth of Monte Pearce in Amsterdam.

Ms Van Ierland says Van Houten "had the baby last week and she is doing very well."

Van Houten's partner, Australian actor Guy Pearce, announced the birth with a tongue-in-cheek tweet on Monday, saying: "A cute little package arrived and told us his name's Monte Pearce. We think we're gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?"

The Dutch actress's character is a mysterious sorceress and the recipient of powerful visions. She joined the series in its second season.
