Daniel Radcliffe gets a new role: a father.
THE Harry Potter actor and his longtime girlfriend, Erin Darke, are expecting their first child, representative he confirmed to Us magazine. The couple has been together for 10 years and first shared the screen in the 2013 film Kill Your Beloveds.
Radcliffe last year opened to the People about the happiness he found in both his career and his personal life.
“I have a very nice life. I’ve been with my girlfriend for about a decade. We’re very happy,” he said.
The couple has been private all along, but Darke was recently spotted with a baby bump by photographers in New York.
An international star since the age of 12, Radcliffe has already made it clear that she does not want this life for her future child.
“I don’t want fame for my child,” she said Newsweek said last year.
But, he added, he still hopes to share the magic of film with them.
“I would love to have them near movie sets,” he said. “Our dream would be for them to walk into a movie set and be like, ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department.’ I’d like to be part of the crew.”
