Harry Potter’s Baby Will Have Michigan Roots!
Raise your wands, Harry Potters gonna be a dad! Well, Daniel Radcliffe is going to be a dad and the mom-to-be is a Michigan native!
Erin Darke and Daniel Radcliffe met in 2013 on the set of Kill Your Darlings and in a case of art imitating life, the romantically involved characters took that romance off screen. On Friday, March 24th, 2023, photos of the couple walking in New York City were published that showed what appeared to be a 'baby bump'. Reps for both performers confirmed the pregnancy and Harry Potter fans have been rejoicing ever since.
Darke grew up in Flint according to People Magazine and enrolled in the University of Michigan's Flint campus at the age of 16. This means that Harry Potter's child will have ties to The Mitten State! I nominate Traverse City or Houghton Lake as the home of Michigan's Hogwarts, though an argument can be made for Lansing, Ann Arbor or Grand Rapids.
Radcliffe and Darke continue to work with each other, most recently in season 3 of the former Harry Potter's tv show Miracle Workers and as well as the 2016 feature film Don't Think Twice.
You may have also seen Erin Darke in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Good Girls Revolt and the Oscar-nominated film Still Alice.
No word on how far along Darke is or when we can expect to see the newest addition to the Potterverse. Sources close to the couple say they are elated and Radcliffe is "excited to be a father".
