Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright has announced the birth of her first child with husband Andrew Lococo.
The 32-year-old star, who played Ginny Weasley in the popular franchise, first confirmed the news that she was expecting back in April.
Writing on Instagram at the time, she said: "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."
Now, the star has announced the birth of her first bundle of joy as well as the adorable name.
Introducing her baby to the world, she wrote today (27 September): "Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo, born at home on Tuesday 19th September. We’re all healthy and happy. Andrew and I are so in love with our sun 🌞! So grateful for our birth team that have held our hands throughout and made the journey so joyous and expanding.
"Birth is the wildest experience! Our perfect and loving midwives Tiffany and Taylor @dosmidwifery our wise and wonderful doula Patti @umamother our doctor Phabby if we had needed to transfer @phabulouscare 🕊️
"During these healing postpartum days we’ve been visited by some angels thank you @meaghan_snider_ @motherbees and @themilkywaymamas 🕊️ and thank you @ccmeyer for your incredibly informative course I took in the early weeks of pregnancy.
"Birth workers are amazing 🕊️ ! Lastly thanks to Andrew my rock throughout birth quite literally as I squeezed onto you so tight and you never wavered. Elio has the most tender loving papa. Ok, hormonal emotional extra long caption over!"
Wright and Lococo tied the knot in March last year in an outdoor ceremony in San Juan Capistrano, California, with the Harry Potter star announcing the news by sharing pictures of their rings.
Adorably, the actor called 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.
