British actor Rupert Grint who played the beloved Harry Potter character in the film franchise is expecting his first child with his long-time girlfriend.
Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint is going to be a father as he expects his first child together with fellow British actress and long-time girlfriend Georgia Groome.
The news was confirmed by a representative of Grint to E! News and USA Today on Friday (Apr 10).
“Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time,” the statement said.
The now 31-year-old Grint shot to fame at age of 11, when he nabbed the role of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, alongside Daniel Radcliffe’s titular Harry Potter and Emma Watson’s Hermione Granger. 28-year-old Groome is best known for her starring roll in the British film Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.
The pair have reportedly been together since 2011 but have always kept their relationship on the down-low.
