Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films, has confirmed that she and husband Andrew Lococo are expecting their first child together.
Wright took to Instagram to post the announcement along with pictures of herself and her husband standing out in nature as he put his hands over her baby bump.
She wrote: "We’re having a baby! So excited to share this beautiful land with them.
"What a wild and humbling journey pregnancy is, transforming to make space for new life. Andrew and I can’t wait to meet our baby later this year and become parents.
"It feels like they’re coming to say hello in the little rainbow orb across my belly."
Many fans of the movies wrote in messages of congratulations for Wright, while some others noted how close the announcement was to that of Daniel Radcliffe and girlfriend Erin Darke welcoming their first child.
Others quipped that there was going to be a 'new Weasley' on the way following the couple's announcement that their family was going to get bigger.
Wright and Lococo were married last year, with the Harry Potter star announcing the news by sharing pictures of their rings, with the actor calling it the 'best day of my life'.
It's not known how long they were dating before they decided to tie the knot but the couple first posted about being together all the way back in September 2020.
Wright had previously been engaged to Jamie Campbell Bower, who had a cameo as Gellert Grindelwald in the later Harry Potter movies before they broke up in 2012.
While filming the movies Wright had been one of the youngest actors on the set, which Radcliffe said made the romance between their characters a bit 'weird' as they'd known each other since they were kids.
She had teased the announcement on her Instagram previously with her stories saying she was 'so happy to share some very exciting news'.
The actor recently celebrated the one year anniversary of her book Go Gently, which is a handy guide for people who want to get some tips on living a more sustainable life.
Now that the announcement that there's a baby on the way has been made, how long will it be before fans start speculating about baby names?
