Rupert Grint


It's hard to believe the little red headed boy who played quidditch and helped Harry defeat Voldemort is all grown up...and is now an Instagram dad. Former Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint joined Instagram for the first time yesterday to share a post of his new daughter.

The picture definitely came close to breaking the internet. In only 24 hours, Rupert collected over two million followers.

The image is a special one of the new dad holding his young daughter whom was born in May of this year. While we've known about the baby girl with mom Georgia Groome, we had yet to see a picture or know the name.

Meet Wednesday G. Grint!

That's right, much like the Addams family- the Grints have a Wednesday of their own. Only question is...could the G. stand for Ginny?

The post has over two million likes

One of Grint's Harry Potter co-stars, Tom Felton commented bit in character to congratulate the new dad:

"Welcome Weasley , it's about time. Love to Wednesday xx"

Felton, who played Draco in the infamous Harry Potter films, referred to Rupert as "Weasley"- the last name Draco often referred to when addressing Rupert's character Ron.

We are certain Wednesday will fit right in to the Weasley clan and perform well in her studies at Hogwarts when the time comes.

Rupert's post got reactions on twitter:

One user thought the baby was too perfect to be real

Many love the name and are excited for more instagram photos

Congratulations to the new dad (and instagram influencer)!!
