​As though we weren't already anxious enough for the Season 8 premiere of ​Game of Thrones (which is still literal months away BTW), this recent theory about Daenerys Targaryen having a baby has us even more antsy!

We know what you're thinking: but Daenerys is supposed to be unable to have children, how could this happen? 


Well, as Elite Daily points out, in Season 1, Daenerys gave birth to a stillborn after commanding Mirri Maz Duur to use dark magic to heal Khal Drogo. However, Mirri Maz Duur's magic doesn't work as expected.

The witch says [about Drogo rising again], "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry, and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before."

Jon Snow is doubtful that Mirri Maz Duur's words are truthful, especially considering she was trying to punish ​Daenerys.


While most fans do think Daenerys getting pregnant is definitely a probable theory worth thinking of, one person has spun it on its head and added a heartbreaking twist. Reddit user "Wastelandrider" has a theory that supports Jon's doubts, suggesting that Daenerys will get pregnant in Season 8, but with deadly consequences. 

The theory reads: 

"Dany will have become pregnant in the new season, seemingly defeating the prophecy of Mirri Maz Duur. But the witch will have been proven true in the end. As the Night’s army surrounds the survivors, the Night King will point to ​Dany’s belly and Jon will (with tremendous gnashing of teeth and brooding), plunge his sword into his true love to pull out mankind’s salvation— the royal baby sacrifice that will Bring Light back to the world, just like when Azor Ahai killed Nissa Nissa to save the world before (and hence never bearing a living child)."


Based on this, Jon Snow is supposed to be Azor Ahai, thus making Dany Nissa Nissa, and the same series of events would take place in a slightly different way.

That's seriously dark, not to mention sad! If this fan theory is accurate, it would definitely be the ​"bittersweet" ending George R.R. Martin promised, emphasis on the bitter.
