    Kit Harington's Story About Proposing To Rose Leslie Is Hilarious And Adorable

    "What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load."

    Last week our hearts broke, but also exploded with happiness, when it was revealed that Game of Thrones' Jon Snow and Ygritte, aka Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, have actually become engaged in real life.

    They made a seriously cute (and incredibly British) announcement in The Times newspaper the day after the news spread to confirm it.

    But now Kit Harington has spoken out about the proposal for the first time! And it's seriously cute.

    Mainly because he got so excited about the big moment he ended up mucking up his planned proposal. Then got so excited talking about it on The Jonathan Ross Show that he accidentally made a rude expression while telling the story.

    When Jonathan Ross asked the actor about the happy news, Kit revealed: "We did a little announcement in The Times…"

    But then he told the story of how he was planning to propose, and ended up making a hilarious innuendo when explaining how his intentions went slightly wrong: "I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early. Sorry that’s a really bad expression!"

    He laughed at his mistake, before continuing: "I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load."

    Oh, Kit!


    He also revealed how he's already spoken to George R.R. Martin about scheduling the next Game of Thrones series around his actual wedding, because it's his "fault" they're tying the knot after all.


    Harington told the chat show host: "I rang him up and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s your fault actually’... I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level. I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.’ They [the cast] have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down."

    But they won't be having a Game of Thrones-themed wedding: “No. There is absolutely no chance of me convincing her of that,” he laughed.

    We can't wait!!
