Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has confirmed the birth of his first child with partner Erin Darke.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the news to media outlet Digital Spy that they have become first-time parents, further details about the baby are yet to be announced.

Just last month, the news broke that the couple were expecting their first child together. Radcliffe and Darke have been together for 10 years since the duo met on the set of Kill Your Darlings, a biopic of the Beat Generation.

Radcliffe isn't the first of the Harry Potter stars to welcome a child as Rupert Grint aka Ron Weasley welcomed his first child with his actress partner Georgia Groome back in 2020.

Grint confirmed the name of his baby girl with a sweet Instagram post, which he captioned: "Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint."

Admitting at the time that he found Grint welcoming baby Wednesday "super weird" because it reminded him how old he is, Radcliffe said: "It's also like super weird, for me, to think that we are all at the age where we are all having children, but we definitely are."

Meanwhile, Grint has recently opened up on his time filming in the movie franchise, revealing that he began to find it difficult to separate himself from his character: "By the end of it, I was playing myself. The lines were blurred. I answer to it, if someone calls me Ron. It's my second name."
