Daniel Radcliffe is gearing up for a new project: fatherhood.

The Harry Potter star, 33, and longtime girlfriend Erin Darke, 38, are expecting their first child together, a representative for the actors confirmed Monday (March 27).

The couple began dating in 2012 after meeting on the set of the 2013 film Kill Your Darlings, in which Radcliffe portrayed Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg and Darke played one of his love interests.

Since then, Radcliffe has touted his relationship with Darke. In a 2014 interview with Us Weekly, he said his romance with Darke was “the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone.”

“You want that person to be your best friend,” he added. “In the case of Erin, we definitely are.”

Radcliffe and Darke have also shared the screen in TBS’ Miracle Workers, which stars the Weird: The Al Yankovic Story actor.

Darke has also starred in the TV series Moonshine, Dietland and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She told People in 2018 that she and the Swiss Army Man star bonded over their love for acting.

“There’s something that’s really beautiful and really lovely about being with someone who just innately understands that about you,” she said.

“He helps me make self-tapes sometimes. He’s a great reader, by the way. We’re both incredibly supportive of the other person’s career.” – Los Angeles Times/Tribune News Service
