Accio baby! Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and his longtime girlfriend, Erin Darke, are expecting their first child later this year. A representative for Radcliffe confirmed the happy news to US Weekly. (POPSUGAR reached out to Radcliffe and Darke’s reps for comment but did not receive an immediate response.)
On Friday, March 24, Darke showed off her baby bump during a stroll through New York with Radcliffe as seen in photos obtained by the outlet. The couple were all bundled up to brace the chilly weather, but the “Good Girls Revolt” actor’s jacket and black-tights combo revealed she was expecting.
Radcliffe and Darke first met in 2012 while filming “Kill Your Darlings” together. They made their red carpet debut as a couple in 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival, and they’ve been going strong ever since. However, Radcliffe and Darke prefer to keep their relationship as private as possible.
In a 2022 interview with People, the “Miracle Workers” actor said that he and his girlfriend enjoy working together. “We definitely like [working together], but it’s not something we want to do all the time,” he said. “We obviously met on film, and so getting to do stuff on ‘Miracle Workers’ with her last year was incredibly special and felt lovely. Hopefully we’ll get to do more in the future, but we also both write, so maybe we’d write something together at some point, and that would be cool.”
For now, Radcliffe is just content to be in such an enduring and happy relationship. “I’ve got a really nice life. I’ve been with my girlfriend for a decade pretty much. We’re really happy,” he told the outlet. And now it won’t be long before the happy couple become a family of three.
