You know you’re old when you see the Harry Potter stars all grown up. While you’re sitting here wondering, when did we grow up so quickly? One of our favourite Harry Potter stars, Rupert Grint has been doing some major adulting recently and we have all the scoop.
That’s right. Our favourite red head, Ron Weasely is expecting his first child, in real life!
Rupert Grint Is Going To Be A Dad
“Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time,” his rep confirmed in a statement to E! News.
Rupert Grint has been dating fellow actress Georgia Groome on and off for several years. They were last seen out and about in London. And that’s when the actress’s prominent baby bump broke the news to the world.
The two have been talked about together for mostly a decade. But they’ve managed to keep their relationship under wraps and hidden from the spotlight. However, a year ago there was much speculation of marriage as Georgia sported a gold band on her left ring finger.
Rupert Grint is the first of his Harry Potter trio co-actors to have a child.
“I’d like to settle down and have kids soon,” he told The Guardian in 2018. “If I had a son, would I call him Ron? It’s quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint’s a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with.”
So even if Rupert Grint’s baby isn’t called Ron, we can still be happy with the fact that the world is about to have another Harry Potter fan. And that’s always a good news.
