is revealing how she spent her time during the coronavirus pandemic, and no, she didn't just bake bread.
Instead, the actress tells thepodcast that she and partner David Oakes decided to have a baby, because, as she jokes, "What else could people do?"
"Yes, so it was a perfect thing to do during a pandemic is get pregnant and have a baby. I feel like I am probably being a bit of a cliché," Natalie shares, before imagining how her daughter will "probably be sitting in a bar in sort of 30 years time on a date going, ‘Yeah, I'm a COVID baby.'"
The 39-year-old actress adds that it's been three months since she gave birth to her little girl and it's been "an absolutely joy," even though she's positively knackered.

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, 'will both take some proper time off,' after the birth of their daughter in the summer, a source has claimed, speaking to Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl.For the Duke of Sussex, 36, who is currently living in his $14 million mansion in California, this would mean taking time out from his first job in the corporate world where he recently took an executive position at a Silicon Valley start-up that claims to be worth $1.7billion.
"I'm never going to complain about shooting hours ever again because sleep deprivation is something else," Natalie shares. "I completely underestimated it."
The Game of Thrones actress also acknowledges that she underestimated how much becoming a mom would change her as person. She reflects, "You hear people say your whole perspective on life will change and your whole set of value systems will alter, and you sort of roll your eyes as a childless person and go, 'Yeah, yeah'... And then you have one and you go, 'Oh, wow!'"
"It really does completely alter the lens and things that did matter oh so much, there's a whole new perspective to life, isn't there?" she adds.
'Game of Thrones' fans shouldn't give up hope that George R.R. Martin is making progress on his long-promised book series
"The Winds of Winter" has been in the works for 10 years, but Martin himself said he's made a lot of progress in 2020 alone. Don't give up on him yet.But I'm here, at risk of outing myself as a "sweet summer child," to argue that we have no tangible reason to believe Martin won't one day finish his epic series.
And though Natalie did not share her baby girl's name, she says she's "absolutely in love" with her. So much so, the actress says she's "going to find it very difficult" to return to work when the theaters in London reopen.
The London-based actress says she appreciates stage work though, because it will allow her to spend "all day" with her daughter and work at night. "I'm just like this is perfect," she notes.
And it's thanks to the West End that Natalie found her match in her partner, David. The Tudors actress and Borgias star co-starred in the play Venus in Fur in 2019.
Natalie previously dated director Anthony Byrne for 11 years, butin 2018.
