Rupert Grint, best known for portraying Ron Weasley’s character in Harry Potter, is expecting his first child with girlfriend Georgia Groome. Confirming the news, their publicist told E Online that the two would soon announce the happy news and look forward to maintaining their privacy as they prepare to embrace fatherhood. Georgia, a 31-year-old English actor and fellow actress, began dating in 2011. After separating from a relationship, the two are ready to welcome a child into their lives.
In 2018, during an interview with The Guardian, Rupert shared that he looks forward to starting a family and settling down. Asked if he would consider his son Ron’s name, the actor said that he did not name his child when he thought it was a very good name. The two were spotted together earlier this week and the 28-year-old actress’s baby bump made headlines. Even though they have been dating for some time now, they always try to keep their relationship private.
Last year, both of them sparked rumors of marriage after the actress was spotted wearing a gold belt in Ring Finger. Reacting to the baby’s news, fans of the couple flooded social media and congratulated the duo. “Ron Weasley & Rupert Grint was trending altogether & was kinda scared what has happened & then I saw that he’s gonna be a dad!!! Wow what an awesome news Congratulations Rupert Grint & Georgia Groome,” a fan tweeted. “That teary eye moment when you realize that Ron Weasley is going to be a dad,” Another wrote, “Rupert Grint is going to be a father and I can’t handle this news! Honestly the best news I’ve heard this month!” Another fan commented.
