The actor of Harry Potter, Rupert Grint, finally released Instagram and what better than with his daughter of just a couple of months.
Grint 32 years old joked that he was “10 years late” by joining the popular social network late and that the reason was to introduce everyone to his daughter Wednesday G. Grint, the six-month-old baby born with fellow actress Georgia Groome in May. The two have been together since 2011.
One day after posting his first snapshot, he had amassed three million followers. Grint’s co-star in Harry Potter, Tom Felton, alias Draco Malfoy, was one of those who welcomed him to the site, saying it was “time” for him to open an account.
Grint spoke about the possibility of being a father in the past. “Turning 30 feels strange. I don’t know what the future holds,” he told The Guardian in 2018. “I’m going to go with the flow, continue to play interesting characters and see what happens. I would like to settle down and have children soon.”
He also toyed with the idea of naming a future child after his beloved character from Harry Potter. “If I had a son I’d call him Ron” he joked. “It’s a pretty good name, but probably not. And Grint is a difficult name to combine with a one-syllable name.”
Grint is known for his role as Ron Weasley in the eight Harry Potter movies, is the latest high-profile celebrity to join Instagram, preceding him the Friends star Jennifer Aniston joined in October last year and broke a Guinness Record, achieving 1 million followers in just 5 hours and 16 minutes, thus removing the title from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who had achieved a million followers in 5 hours and 45 minutes.
