“Harry Potter’s” Daniel Radcliffe Grew Up to Be a Family Man, and His Love Story Is Pure Magic
They met while shooting a movie together.
Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke, well-known for her role as Cindy in the series Good Girls Revolt, met on the set of Kill Your Darlings (2013), and it didn’t take long for their bond to grow. They shared genuine feelings during the filming, and Daniel admitted that he wasn’t acting in their scenes together. Their relationship quickly evolved beyond their on-screen characters, and Daniel once said he is looking forward to sharing the story of how they got to know each other with their future kids.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because Daniel and Erin’s story together has more wholesome details worth being told.
They share the same interests, even the most unlikely ones.
Their connection continued to deepen through shared “nerdy” interests, a side of Daniel he had hesitated to reveal to past romantic interests. In a 2020 interview, the Harry Potter star expressed the joy of finally being in a relationship where he could openly embrace his passions and share them with Erin, who not only accepted but also enjoyed the same things.
Beyond their “nerdy” pursuits, Daniel and Erin discovered another common interest: a genuine fondness for reality TV. During a 2022 appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Daniel confessed that Erin was the reason he now watches these shows without irony or guilt, challenging the concept of “guilty pleasures.” This shared appreciation for reality TV strengthened their connection and brought a sense of authenticity to their relationship.
They pride themselves in being as private as possible.
As they have a similar sense of humor, the two are also able to laugh together about the strange things that happen when you’re a famous couple, like seeing multiple reports about their wedding, which never happened. Even so, the 39-year-old actress thinks of themselves as not very exciting for paparazzi because most of the pictures taken of them show them doing regular things like getting coffee, shopping for groceries, or waiting for an Uber, which they find funny.
Nevertheless, Daniel has expressed his hope for a low-key family life, wanting any future children to be around film sets without the trappings of fame. He envisions his kids being drawn to the art department or crew, appreciating the positive aspects of film sets while avoiding the downsides of celebrity status.
Their family has grown already.
Even though Daniel and Erin have been together for nearly a decade, a wedding doesn’t seem to be on the horizon. However, in a surprising turn of events, on April 25, 2023, a representative for Daniel confirmed that Erin had given birth to their first child. The couple initially chose to keep details like the baby’s name, gender, and birthdate private. But months later, the 34-year-old actor revealed in an interview that they had welcomed a baby boy.
On top of that, he spoke warmly of the experience of first-time fatherhood and their precious time together, expressing gratitude for being able to take a break and be fully involved in this special stage of their lives.
Daniel Radcliffe is not the only star from the beloved Harry Potter movies who has recently become a parent. Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the saga, welcomed her first baby and revealed their unique name.
