Harry Potter fans are probably going to wheeze with delight, when they hear that Rupert Grint's daughter's name could be straight out of the pages of a Hogwarts novel.

The actor and girlfriend Georgia Groome (from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging no less) announced in April that they were expecting their first child, before welcoming a baby girl in May.

In a statement released at the time, Rupert, 31, and Georgia, 28, said via a publicist: "Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl. We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time."

Since then, the notoriously private couple have kept details about their new arrival quiet - until now. The Harry Potter actor joined Instagram last night [10 November], sharing a photo with his daughter and revealing her adorably unique name in the caption. We love.

"Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert," he wrote to his already 1.9million followers.

The comments were full of people sharing congratulations for the actor - but it was the love and support from his Harry Potter co-stars that really made us weep. Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, wrote: "Welcome Weasley , it’s about time. Love to Wednesday xx"

James Phelps, who played Fred Weasley, added, "Nougat" which admittedly makes no sense out of context but presumably is a nice private joke between the onscreen brothers.

Rupert and Georgia began dating in 2011. However, some fans only appeared to find out about their romance in recent years after a tweet went viral which shared a picture of the pair, along with the caption, "I was today years old when I found out Georgia from Angus, thongs and perfect snogging has been going out with Ron Weasley since 2011 ???? [sic]"

Congratulations to Rupert, Georgia and little Wednesday - here's to hoping the actor joining Instagram means even more baby pics!
