When Headey broke out the news that she was giving birth to a baby girl in 2015, she didn’t reveal the baby’s father’s identity. 

In a blog post in May for Charity Plan International USA, she wrote she was having a baby girl in six weeks and that her daughter will be having freedom of choice in whatever her will want. 

She would be loved, protected, respected, and celebrated.

It was only two years after the birth of Teddy that Cadan's name was revealed, as his name was mentioned as the father of the two-year-old Teddy in the New York Times in 2017

She was first married to musician and hairdresser Peter Paul Loughran, whom she met in 2007 and married soon after. 

They gave birth to their son Wylie Loughran in March 2010 but separated the following year and filed for divorce in 2012.

In 2013, Headey revealed that she nearly went bankrupt because of her divorce and only had $5 in her bank account. 

During an interview with The New York Times in 2017, Headey said she went through tough years following her messy divorce battle in 2013

As a result, she tried to put her fictional character Cersei in a cathartic way. Otherwise, she would have had a meltdown. 

And aside from all those emotions, as a private person, she was horrified to see details about settlements and custody hearings become public.

Headey thought she wouldn’t get married after that until she met Cadan, whom she dated three years before marrying in 2018.


Cadan was born on the 2nd of January 1975 in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England. He is currently 52 years old.
