Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome met each other in 2011. They have often kept their relationship away from the public's eye.
Fatherhood is a wonderful experience, in spite of the challenges and responsibilities that come along with it. Hollywood actor, Rupert Grint, known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, is excited to begin his journey into fatherhood. The star confirmed that he was soon to welcome his first child with long term girlfriend and actress, Georgia Groome.
According to Eonline, the couple is all set to become parents. "Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time," confirmed their representative to Eonline. The news about the pregnancy first came to light after the couple was spotted in London. Groome had a very evident baby bump.
Is Rupert Grint becoming a father? If this is true, this is huge news. Amazing news!! Rupert has mentioned it often lately he wanted kids. So if this is true, I'm so happy for them! pic.twitter.com/cC2RFRTpUG— Asmaa 🧡 (@rupertpetsch) April 10, 2020
The good news comes almost 2 years after Grint opened up about his wish to become a father. Speaking to the Guardian, the 31-year-old spoke about his desire to settle down and start a family. He even gave some thoughts regarding the name of his child. "It just doesn’t feel like I’m there yet and I don’t know what the future holds. I’m just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters and see what happens. I’d like to settle down and have kids soon. If I had a son, would I call him Ron? It’s quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint’s a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with," said the star, according to the Guardian.
