Daniel Radcliffe was still only a child when the public discovered him in the role of Harry Potter in 2001. Twenty-two years later, it is his turn to welcome a child into his life. His partner, actress Erin Darke, is pregnant with their first baby.

The news was confirmed last weekend by the actor’s entourage to various American media, including CNN, People and The Hollywood Reporter.

Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke have been a couple since 2013, when they starred together in the movie Kill Your Darlings.

What kind of father will be the one who recently played singer and comedian Weird Al Yankovic in the biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story? In an interview with Newsweek magazine in October, the actor replied that he would like to bring his future children to film sets (“if and when they exist”). He would prefer, however, that they did not know about stardom and its bad sides.

“Film sets are wonderful places. […] It’s really the fame associated with it that should be avoided at all costs,” he said, indicating that he would be happy if his offspring were attracted to a profession behind the camera.
