Rupert, who previously filmed Sky comedy Sick Note with Lindsay Lohan, and Georgia, 28, announced they were expecting their first child together in April.

A representative for the couple said at the time: "Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time."

In an interview with The Guardian in 2018, Rupert opened up about the prospect of having children and settling down, as he admitted “turning 30 felt strange.”

He continued: “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.”
