Daniel Radcliffe is a daddy!
Radcliffe welcomed his first child with his longterm partner, Erin Darke, earlier this year. The couple confirmed the news to the Daily Mail, but have declined to share the child's birth date or identifying information.
The couple met on the set of the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings, where Radcliffe played the poet Allen Ginsberg, and Darke played one of Ginsberg's love interests, Gwendolyn. Media coverage of the couple has been intense, but the pair have successfully kept the personal details of their relationship under wraps, with news of Darke's pregnancy not being released until March.
Radcliffe will return to Broadway next season in Merrily We Roll Along, playing the neurotic Charley Kringas who leaves his starry Broadway opening night to make the birth of his first child—thankfully life did not have to imitate art in this case!
Our best to the happy family.
