– Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke have welcomed their first child, as confirmed by Radcliffe’s representative to POPSUGAR.
– The couple first announced the pregnancy in March and were spotted pushing their baby carriage in New York City in late April.
– Radcliffe has expressed that he wants his kids to be involved in film sets, but not pursue fame and child acting like himself.
Daniel Radcliffe, best known for his role as Harry Potter, and Erin Darke, his longtime partner, have welcomed their first child together. Their representative confirmed the arrival of their baby to the public on April 25. This news comes after a recent sighting of Radcliffe and Darke pushing a baby carriage around New York City.
The couple first announced their pregnancy in March, when they were seen out and about in the city, with Darke sporting a visible baby bump. Although they prefer to keep their relationship private, the pair first met on the set of their 2013 movie, “Kill Your Darlings,” and made their red carpet debut in 2014 at the Tony Awards.
Darke, an actress herself, appeared on Radcliffe’s TBS series “Miracle Workers” in 2021 during its third season. In September 2022, she accompanied him to the Toronto International Film Festival for his new movie “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.” During an interview with GQ in October 2022, Radcliffe mentioned that he was introduced to Weird Al’s music by Darke and her family, who had a shared love for the artist.
The new father has been candid about his hopes for his children in future years. He wishes for them to enjoy experiences around film sets without seeking fame in the industry themselves. “I’d love them to be around film sets,” Radcliffe said during an interview with Newsweek. “A dream would be for them to come onto a film set and be like ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department… Some part of this, but not from that.'”
Congratulations to Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke on the arrival of their new bundle of joy!
