Sophie and Joe are expecting their first child (opens in new tab) this summer and the former Game of Thrones actress is reportedly very pregnant—like eight months pregnant, by some accounts. In mid-February, a source close to the couple told E! News (opens in new tab) that Sophie was about four months along while another told Us Weekly (opens in new tab) she was "due in the middle of summer." 

The comment section of Sophie's post (opens in new tab) overflowed with support from fans and friends alike, many of whom seemed to acknowledge the extra challenges participating in public protests in the midst of a pandemic so late in a pregnancy could pose.

YEEEEEEES!! So proud of you babe. I know how hard it is to be out in the world right now and your courage speaks VOLUMES," actress and singer Alexandra Shipp (opens in new tab) wrote. "I am constantly in awe of your strength! Thank you for this, Queen, I love you an insane amount ❤️"
