Oh happy day! Rupert Grint, 31, and his girlfriend Georgia Groome, 28, have officially entered the world of parenthood. The couple revealed the joyous news on Thursday, May 7. “Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl,” a rep for the actors told HollywoodLife. “We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time.” It was only about a month ago when they first sparked pregnancy rumors after Georgia had her massive baby bump on display during their outing at a Whole Foods in North London on April 9. She sported a black graphic tee, black leggings and white sneakers for their supermarket adventure where her growing baby belly could easily be seen from a distance.
Their rep confirmed one day later that she was, in fact, with child, saying that the duo were “excited to announce they are expecting a baby.” Rupert and Georgia waited quite a long time to become parents as the duo have been together since 2011! They did, as many other celeb couples have done in the past, spark marriage rumors when the two were seen wearing matching rings in 2019.
Rupert, who is well-known for his performances in all of the Harry Potter films and Georgia, who has received acclaim for her acting abilities in movies like Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, have done an expert job at keeping their relationship under wraps over the past decade.
He didn’t address her directly in an interview with The Guardian in 2018 but did hint at his desire to become a father in the future. “I’d like to settle down and have kids soon. If I had a son, would I call him Ron?”, he said. “It’s quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint’s a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with.”
There are several other A-list celebrity couples that will be welcoming a new addition to their family later on this year. Others that are currently expecting include Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwazenegger and Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev.
