It’s been over 19-years since the first ever Harry Potter movie was released. In those nearly two decades, the cast of the beloved franchise have gone through breakups, tragedies, marriages and now, Rupert Grint is one the first of the stars to be preparing for parenthood.
On Friday, a rep for the Brit shared in a statement, “Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time.”
Though some of the graduates of Hogwarts have gotten married or adopted pets, none of them are parents yet.
Of course, this means there’s even more love to go around for the future member of the Harry Potter family.
Although, fans shouldn’t expect Rupert to name his future baby after his character. He previously shared, “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.”

Daniel is currently in a relationship with actress Erin Darke, who he met on the set of their 2013 movie, Kill Your Darlings. “We met on the set of Kill Your Darlings, and just got on immediately. It was one of those instant things where you’re like, ‘Oh, I really like this person.’ You just have a connection with somebody, and then suddenly it’s incredibly easy to talk to them. It was one of those sort of situations,” Daniel said about their relationship in a 2014 interview with Parade.
Emma is very private about her love life and doesn’t discuss her relationships in interviews. However, she was linked to tech entrepreneur William “Mack” Knight for some time. A source told The Sun in Feb. 2016, “Mack is just a normal, down-to-earth guy who has nothing to do with Hollywood, and Emma loves that. She was left really hurt by her break-up with Matthew [Janney] and it’s taken her more than a year to feel ready to start again with somebody. They’re really happy with each other and see each other whenever Emma does not have work commitments.” But according to multiple reports, the couple has called it quits. In 2018, Emma romanced Glee’s Chord Overstreet for several months before moving on with tech CEO Brendan Wallace later that same year. They also split.
