Rupert Grint joins Instagram as he shares sweet photo of baby girl

Rupert Grint has joined Instagram, sharing a snap of his baby girl and revealing her name for good measure.

The Harry Potter star admitted he was ’10 years late’ to the platform – but made up for it by introducing us all to the new addition to his family.

Rupert, 32, wrote: ‘Hey Instagram….only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint.

‘Stay safe, Rupert.’

To make things all the more adorable, the actor set his profile picture to a snap of Maggie Smith, who played Minerva McGonagall in the Harry Potter films, kissing him on the cheek.

Fans are thrilled at his arrival on Insta, with one writing: ‘Weasley is our king! Welcome, Rupert!’

‘OH MY GOD FINALLY OH MY GOD,’ another said, with one more adding: Welcome Mr. Weasley! 🧡.’

Just a few hours after his first post, the star has more than 800,000 followers, including some celebrity fans such as Ariana Grande.

He’s following just 16 people, including his girlfriend Georgia, Harry Potter pals Emma Watson and Tom Felton, filmmaker M Night Shyamalan, and David Attenborough.

Ron Weasley actor Rupert and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging star Georgia welcomed their first child together in May this year.

Reps confirmed at the time: ‘Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl.

‘We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time.’

Meanwhile, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe later admitted he thought it was ‘weird’ but ‘very cool’ his old pal was having babies.

In a video call with Watch What Happens Live, the star said: ‘I texted him the other day and said I was so happy for him and it’s very very cool.

‘It’s also like super weird, for me, to think that we are all at the age where we are all having children, but we definitely are.’
