Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe welcomes new baby with partner Erin Darke

The Jewish star was seen strolling with his child in New York


Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe welcomed his first child with long-term partner Erin Darke, who he has been dating for over 10 years.

Radcliffe, 33, was spotted pushing a pram in New York City on Monday.

The couple met while working together on Kill Your Darlings in 2012 and have been together for more than a decade. 

Daniel kept a low profile as he wore a mask and baseball cap while pushing the blue pushchair.

New mum Erin, 38, also kept it casual, wearing jeans and a mask propped under her chin.

Of the first time he met Erin in 2020, Daniel said: “It’ll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day, our characters are meeting and flirting with each other, so there is this kind of sweet record of us just meeting for the first time.”

Daniel, famously private, will likely try to steer his offspring away from the limelight.

He told Newsweek last year: “I want my kids – if and when they exist – I would love them to be around film sets.

“A dream would be for them to come onto a film set and be like: ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department, I’d love to be something in the crew.

“I wouldn’t want fame for my kid. Film sets are wonderful places. A lot of the time it can be wonderful for kids, but it’s really the fame side of it that should be avoided at all costs.”

A spokesperson for the Harry Potter star confirmed the happy news in March. 

They said that the couple, who've been together for over a decade, were "absolutely thrilled" to become parents. 

A source told The Sun: "Daniel is so excited to be a dad. His relationship with Erin is really special and everyone thinks they will be amazing parents."

"They have kept it pretty quiet up until now but she can't hide her bump anymore."
