Björnsson and Henson first began dating in 2017. They reportedly met when Henson asked to take a photo with the Game of Thrones star at a bar where she was employed. The two realized they had chemistry and struck up a romance.

The two do not have any children together, but Björnsson has a daughter from a previous relationship.

While he most well-known for his role as Ser Gregor Clegane ("The Mountain") on Game of Thrones, Björnsson is also an accomplished bodybuilder and weightlifter.

In May, he traveled to the Philippines to compete in the World's Strongest Man competition which he subsequently won. The win was a big achievement for Björnsson, as he lost the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition by just one point after a referee cited him for breaking a rule that he contented he did not break.
