Is Cersei Lannister Really Pregnant on 'Game of Thrones'?

By Anna Quintana

There are so many questions to be answered during Season 8 of Game of Thrones — one of which involves Cersei Lannister and her unexpected pregnancy. 

The current queen of the Seven Kingdoms revealed she was expecting a child last season, but seeing as Cersei (played by Lena Headley) is not the most honest character in the HBO series, fans are convinced King Baratheon's widow is up to her usual tricks. 

So, is Cersei really pregnant? 

Early on in Season 7, Cersei told her brother/lover Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) that she was expecting another child — and for some, it seemed like a power move more than anything else. However, as the script for that episode read, "She nods, it’s true. [. . .] Her happiness is contagious. They get another chance at family. This time with no one standing in their way."
