News of the couple expecting were revealed just a month ago when Rupert and Georgia were spotted shopping in North London. Georgia’s baby bump was in full view! The couple confirmed the pregnancy shortly thereafter.

The couple has officially released a statement sharing that they are the proud parents of a new baby girl! The couple have not yet announced the name they have chosen for their first child. Considering how private both Rupert and Georgia keep their lives, it’s likely we may not know the name of their child for quite some time. Neither of them are active on social media and they have made it clear they wish for the public to respect their privacy during this time.

In 2018, Rupert did share his thoughts on becoming a father. He shared, “Grint’s a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with.” That may be the only hint we get to Rupert’s daughter’s name!

Rupert and Georgia have been dating since 2011, the same year the final movie in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiered. The couple has kept their relationship very quiet. A year ago, they sparked marriage rumors after Georgia was spotted with a gold band on her left-hand ring finger. However, nothing has been confirmed as to whether they are engaged or married.

We wish the happy couple lots of love as they transition into this new chapter of their lives as parents!
