In his post, he also introduced his daughter to the world “Here to introduce you to all to Wednesday G. Grint.” And signed it off “Stay safe, Rupert.”
It was in April when it was confirmed that Grint, 32, and his girlfriend of nine years Georgia Groome, 28, were expecting their first child. A month later, the birth of their daughter was announced through the couple’s representative.
Grint, who currently stars in the psychological horror TV series Servant, has shied away from the spotlight and prefers to keep a private life, so him hopping on the social media bandwagon has excited fans.
His Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton, welcomed Grint to Instagram the Draco Malfoy way: “Welcome Weasley, it’s about time. Love to Wednesday xx,” Felton commented on Grint’s post.
Grint also paid tribute to his Harry Potter co-star Maggie Smith (Prof. McGonagall) through his profile photo of him and the award-winning actress during the 2009 premiere of the Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince in London.
