Daniel Radcliffe and his longtime girlfriend, Erin Darke, are expecting their first child together, according to a representative for the Harry Potter actor who confirmed the news on Saturday. Radcliffe, who is 33 years old, is famously private about his personal life and does not have any social media presence. The pair first met on the set of the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings, in which Radcliffe played Allen Ginsberg and Darke played a woman with whom he shares a romantic encounter.
During an interview in 2022, Radcliffe explained why he keeps his private life out of the public eye. He stated that since becoming sober, he just wants to live his life and see his friends, and he wants people to talk about his work instead of his personal life. In March of 2022, while promoting his latest comedy film The Lost City, Radcliffe revealed that he and Darke have been together for a decade and that they are “really happy” together.
Darke, an actress, has appeared in several TV series and films, including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Don’t Think Twice, and has recurred on Radcliffe’s show Miracle Workers.
The couple’s pregnancy news comes as a surprise to many of Radcliffe’s fans and admirers, who have been eagerly awaiting news about the actor’s personal life. Radcliffe’s recent roles, including his portrayal of “Weird Al” Yankovic in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story and his performance in The Lost City, have been critically acclaimed, and his upcoming projects include the series Miracle Workers and the film Escape from Pretoria.
Radcliffe’s ability to balance his private life and his successful career is something that many young actors and actresses look up to. His decision to keep his personal life out of the spotlight has helped him maintain his privacy while also allowing him to focus on his work. With news of his impending fatherhood, it is clear that Radcliffe’s life is taking a new direction, and fans are excited to see what the future holds for him and his growing family.
