Watch: ‘I congratulated him but it is super weird that we are all old enough to have children,’ says Daniel Radcliffe on his ‘Harry Potter’ co-star Rupert Grint becoming a father


Daniel Radcliffe has said that he texted his Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint (who played Rone Weasley in the films) to congratulate him on becoming a father. Rupert and his longtime girlfriend Georgia Goome became proud parents to a baby girl earlier this month. 

In a virtual interview on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen on Monday said, “I texted him the other day. I’m so happy for him. It’s very, very cool. It is also super weird for me to think that we are all of the age where we are having children, but we definitely are.” Andy chimed in and said, “It’s weird for all of us,” to which Daniel replied, “I’m sure it is. I remember when I turned 30, a lot of people in my life were really depressed to find that that had happened.”
