Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint, 31, and his longtime girlfriend, Angus, Thongs, And Perfect Snogging star Georgia Groome, 28, are expecting their first child together, a rep for both stars confirmed to HollywoodLife! While the couple is “excited to announce they are expecting a baby” they’re asking for “privacy at this time.” The baby buzz began when Georgia put her baby bump on display for the first time in new photos on April 9.
The pair stepped out for a supply run at Whole Foods in North London on April 9, amid the coronavirus lockdown, and Georgia was rocking a growing baby bump. The couple, who have been dating since 2011, sparked wedding rumors in 2019 after they were spotted wearing matching rings, leading fans to believe they had secretly tied the knot.
The couple looked super laid back when they stepped out of quarantine to stock up on groceries, and soak in the London sunshine. Rupert wore a black ensemble including a black tee and jeans, with dark sneakers, a navy blue jacket, and an army green baseball cap. Georgia wore a black graphic tee, black leggings and white sneakers. Her brunette tresses fell below her shoulders as she showed off her natural beauty, stepping out sans makeup.
The British actress is best known for playing Georgia Nicholson in the 2008 coming of age flick Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. At the time, Rupert was already a household name after starring as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, which wrapped in 2011. Since the series ended, he has starred in a number of TV shows, including Servant, Sick Note, and Snatch.
In Nov. 2019, Rupert was back in the spotlight after saying there were “sparks” between his Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson, 29, and Tom Felton, 32. “There was always something,” Rupert told Entertainment Tonight‘s Rachel Smith while sitting down with his talk about his new Apple+ series The Servant. “There was a little bit of a spark,” the 31-year-old added between the actors who played Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy.
Rupert says he didn’t want to say anything at the time because they spent so many years together on set, though he does stand by that there “were some sparks” between Emma and Tom. Unfortunately they were just too young to really act on anything serious. “But we were kids. It was like any kind of playground romance,” he added.
