Icelandic strongman Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, best known as The Mountain from Game of Thrones, celebrated his baby’s gender reveal in front of his fans during a live Twitch broadcast on April 10.

Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson is known for his role as Gregor Clegane in the hit TV series, and as the winner of the ‘World’s Strongest Man’ competition in 2018.

The popular actor has been consistently streaming on Twitch in recent weeks, providing his fans with a range of entertainment from his home workouts to CS:GO and CoD: Warzone gameplay.

Björnsson shared that he would be switching things up for his April 10 Twitch broadcast, however, and that he would be hosting his baby’s gender reveal for his followers at home to watch as well.

After gathering his family and friends for the occasion, Hafthór set up his stream briefly and even got his followers to chime in and guess what gender they thought the child would be.

"Is everyone ready, is it a boy or girl?” he asked, building the hype up for the grand reveal.


Once everything was finally set up, he popped the balloon alongside wife, Kelsey Henson, covering the room with blue confetti and revealing that his first child is a boy.

Björnsson raised his hands in excitement when he realized, “It’s a boy!” he exclaimed, while his Twitch chat exploded with messages of congratulations for the pair.


The Game of Thrones star continued on with his celebrations, ending the stream and thanking his fans for all their support.

When Björnsson is not celebrating a special occasion on his Twitch channel, he has been documenting his efforts towards setting the new deadlifting world record during his home workouts, which currently sits at 1102 lbs set by fellow strongman Eddie Hall.
