Rupert Grint from Harry Potter welcomed his first child last year, and what he just said about parenthood is the sweetest thing.

In case you missed it, the 32-year-old actor and girlfriend Georgia Groome (from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging no less) had a baby daughter in May 2020. The couple's publicist announced at the time, "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."

Rupert later joined Instagram in November to share the first picture of their daughter, and to reveal her unique name. "Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am," he wrote in the caption.

"Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert."

Now, he's opened up about how parenthood is going, and what it's like being a new dad. "It was something I never really had much of an idea of, that kind of love," he told Comicbook.com. "It's a very different love. It's very strange. It definitely has kind of changed my perspective on things but also in a helpful way."

The couple have been together since 2011, and are generally pretty private about their personal lives. 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 ????
