Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe becomes a father

The 33-year-old has been in a relationship with fellow actor Erin Darke for more than a decade.

Daniel Radcliffe has welcomed his first child with long-term partner Erin Darke.

A representative of the Harry Potter star, 33, confirmed the news to the PA news agency.

The couple announced they were expecting in March. They reportedly met on the set of the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings.

It comes after fellow Harry Potter star Rupert Grint also became a father, in 2020.

The actor, best known for playing Ron Weasley in the wizarding franchise, welcomed a daughter with his partner Georgia Groome.

Radcliffe, whose other film roles include 2012 horror The Woman In Black and 2016 surreal comedy Swiss Army Man, divides his time between the UK and US, with Darke.

Michigan-born Darke is best known for her role in 2015 series Good Girl Revolt, and more recently appeared in Prime Video series The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.

Kill Your Darlings followed the early lives of some of the most prominent figures of the Beat Generation of poets and writers, including Jack Kerouac and William S Burroughs.

In the film Radcliffe played the acclaimed US poet Allen Ginsberg while Darke starred opposite him as Gwendolyn, who develops a crush on the writer without realising he is gay.
