Actor Rupert Grint and his girlfriend, Georgia Groome, have become parents to a baby girl, their representative confirmed on Thursday. They haven't revealed the name of the baby yet.
"Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl," the rep said, according to E! News. "We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time." Grint's fans left congratulatory messages under an Instagram post by Harry Potter fan account Mugglenet. "Omg my lil Ronniekins is growing up so fast," wrote one person. "I'm in love with this!!! Our sweet Ron are going to be a dad..." wrote another.
News of the pregnancy first came in April. In a 2018 interview to the Guardian, Grint had said that he wants to settle down and start a family. "I'd like to settle down and have kids soon," the actor said. "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."
