Amanda Peet and husband David Benioff are the proud parents of a baby boy.

“The Good Wife” alum and the “Game of Thrones” co-show runner welcomed son Henry Peet Friedman on Sunday, the actress’ rep confirmed to the Los Angeles Times.

Henry joins older sisters Frances Pen Friedman, 7, and Molly June Friedman, 4, in contention for the Iron Throne. OK, he doesn’t really, but we’d like to imagine that family dynamic.

Friedman is part of the writer-producer’s full name; Benioff, 44, uses his mother’s maiden name professionally.


Peet, 42, stayed mum through most of the pregnancy but revealed it in August when her growing baby bump was on display in a Giambattista Valli gown at the Primetime Emmy Awards.

“The Good Wife” was up for four awards that night and clinched one for star Julianna Margulies. Benioff’s sprawling HBO drama was nominated for a whopping 19 awards but conquered only four technical categories.

Peet and Benioff, who wed in 2006, revealed the baby’s gender in October, People reported.

Us Weekly was first to report Henry’s arrival.
