After taking hiatus from Instagram for almost a year, the Harry Potter actor returned to the platform on January 21 and shared an adorable photo of his daughter who turns 2 this year. While sharing an adorable photo, Rupert wrote, “Hello! Turns out I suck at Instagram. But Happy New Year anyway!”
The Ron Weasley star then thanked his fans for watching the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special on HBO Max, noting it was “so fun to look back and to share some of those memories with you all.” Grint then pointed out that the third season of his Apple TV+ series Servant “is creeping upon us.” Today, in fact! And as he put it, viewers are going to want to “get comfy” because it’s “gonna be a ride!”
The sweet snapshot of Grint’s baby girl showed her sitting in a chair with the title of the show written across the back. And while followers couldn’t see her face, they did start debating over the child’s hair color. “Red hair,” one follower wrote. “Must be a Weasley.” While tagging Grint’s former Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, another commented, “@t22felton blondie like a Malfoy.” Choosing a hue more in the middle, a third asked, “Is she strawberry blonde?”
As fans may recall, Grint actually made his Instagram debut with a photo of his little one back in November 2020. “Hey Instagram… only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram!” he wrote at the time. “Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert.” Rupert Grint and actress Georgia Groome welcomed the child earlier that year, with his rep confirming her arrival in May 2020.
The parents have been first linked for more than a decade, and Grint told The Guardian in 2018 that he wanted to “settle down and have kids soon,” adding, “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.”
