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.


Jake Paul roasts Conor McGregor with new fight deal after UFC 257 Poirier loss

Jake Paul has jokingly rescinded his $50 million fight offer to Conor McGregor after his shock loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, offering him a measly $10,000 instead.

Jake Paul has been nipping at Conor McGregor’s heels in the weeks leading up to UFC 257, trying to bait the former double-champ into accepting a $50 million fight offer for an exhibition boxing bout.

However, despite his best efforts, it didn’t work. Conor McGregor was too focused on his own endeavors and never acknowledged it, although he tip-toed around the question a few times.

Eventually, he flat-out said he’s not interested in the fight, and it seemed like the idea was dead and buried once and for all. But after Conor McGregor’s shock UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier, Jake Paul is at it again. And this time, his original offer is off the table.

Jake Paul’s second fight offer adds more insult to injury after Conor McGregor’s UFC 257 loss.

Jake Paul tuned in to watch the main event like millions of other UFC fans. But he had more invested in the fight than the average viewer, and once it was over, it was only a matter of time before he posted a video.

“Hey Conor,” she said, laughing hysterically in a video that he shared on Twitter moments after the loss. “I’ve got ten thousand dollars for you, cash!” He struggled to contain his laughter and kept repeating words. “Oh, you had fifty million dollars,” he added, right at the end. 

The same message was echoed in a YouTube video Jake uploaded to his YouTube channel shortly after titled ‘My Message to Conor McGregor.’ He said, “you should have taken the Jake Paul fight for $50 million, but now I got $10,000 for you. I got $10,000 cash, cold hard cash. Or I’ll give you a third of a bitcoin. You choose, Conor McGregor.”

At the end of the video he says “April 17th guys, I’m fighting… You know, it was supposed to be Conor McGregor but we’ll see what happens, stay tuned.”

It’s obvious that Jake is still up to his usual antics. He’s trying to kick Conor while he’s down. But this time, it might actually work.

Conor’s loss will undoubtedly be a spanner in the works for his UFC plans. However, it means he might be open to lucrative exhibition fight offers once again.

Of course, there’s no way he’d accept the second $10,000 fight offer. But he might consider the initial $50 million one, which is probably what Jake Paul intended. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.
