- Rupert Grint is expecting his first child with his longtime girlfriend, actress Georgia Groome.
- Georgia’s baby bump was on display during a shopping trip yesterday, and Rupert’s publicist confirmed the news.
IDK about you, but I consider myself obsessed with any and all things Harry Potter-related. So when news broke that Ronald Weasley—I mean, Rupert Grint…sorry—is expecting his first child, I (and the rest of the fandom) naturally freaked TF out. Especially since I was today-years-old when I found out that Rupert had a girlfriend, but here we are folks!
According to E! News and People, Rupert and long-time girlfriend, Georgia Groome, are going to become parents soon. “Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time,” his rep told both outlets in a statement.
For those of you that don’t know, Georgia Groome played Georgia Nicholson in 2008’s Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, which means she is an ICON. The movie revolved around Georgia trying to win the affections of “sex god” Robbie on screen. Turns out, she fell for Rupert IRL when they met back in 2011.
Rupert and Georgia keep their relationship extremely private and possibly wouldn’t have shared the news with fans at all, but rumors about their pregnancy started circulating after they were spotted doing some grocery shopping in London yesterday. Georgia’s BB bump was on full display, the paps were able to snap a clear pic of it, and the rest, as they say, is history.
That all said, congrats to these crazy kids on the journey that is parenthood. As for me, I’ll be placing my bets on every magical boy and girl name in the book. Ciao!
