The couple haven't disclosed the name of their newborn.

Grint, 31, and actress Groome, 28, announced in early April that she was pregnant.

Groome, who's known for her role in Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging, and Grint have been together since 2011.

Georgia showed off her baby bump on an outing for essentials earlier last month.

Rupert, who has a net worth of $50 million thanks to his role in all eight Harry Potter films, previously opened up about wanting children when he turned 30 in 2018.

He told The Guardian: "Turning 30 felt strange. It just doesn't feel like I'm there yet and I don't know what the future holds.

"I'm just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters and see what happens.

"I'd like to settle down and have kids soon. If I had a son, would I call him Ron?

"It's quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint's a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with."

Grint and Groome have kept their relationship extremely private over the years, and are rarely seen together in public.
