11 Nov Rupert Grint and His Daughter Make Their Instagram Debut!
Bloody hell! Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has finally joined Instagram, as he reveals the first photo of his six-month-old daughter named Wednesday. Grint, famously known for playing Ronald Weasley, made his Instagram debut by posting a selfie of him holding his daughter while she rests on his chest.
The First Photo
Grint captioned the photo “Hey Instagram…only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert.”
I Solemnly Swear They Are up to Good
Grint’s post instantly captured a tremendous amount of support, gaining over 2.1 million followers and over 78 thousand comments in under a day, “wicked,” as Ron would say! Some of those comments may have even made “Harry Potter” fans tear up like a phoenix.
Fellow costar, Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy, couldn’t resist making a Potter reference as he comments “Welcome Weasley, It’s about time. Love to Wednesday xx.”
Another Potter alum, James Phelps who starred as Grint’s older brother, George, kept the references going, commenting “Nougat,” on his post.
It’s safe to say that this cast is still in cahoots, as Grint’s Instagram profile picture pays tribute to actress Maggie Smith, who played Professor McGonagall. His profile picture shows Smith giving a young Grint a kiss on the cheek.
Grint’s post additionally caught attention from a wide range of celebrities, receiving comments from stars like Lindsay Lohan, Guy Fieri, “Dance Moms” Holly Hatcher-Frazier and a follow from “Harry Potter” fan Ariana Grande.
The Initial Announcement
The first announcement of Grint’s baby was made back in April. Grint’s publicist confirmed to Us Weekly that “Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time.” Grint’s Instagram post is the first update fans have received since this announcement.
It’s worth noting that Grint’s long-time girlfriend ,Georgia, is known for her role as Georgia Nicholson in 2008’s “Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.”
We send our congratulations to the new parents, as “Another Weasley” was born!
