Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has become a dad for the first time.

Daniel Radcliffe and his partner Erin Darke have welcomed their first child together. The new dad was spotted pushing a pram in New York. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the new dad kept a low profile with a baseball cap and face mask hiding his face.

Erin walked alongside the actor and their newborn.

The couple has not yet confirmed the name or sex of their baby.

A source confirmed they were expecting their first child together last month.

The soon-to-be parents first met on the set of Kill Your Darlings in 2013. They started dating shortly afterward.

A source previously told The Sun that Radcliffe was incredibly excited about becoming a parent for the first time.

“Daniel is so excited to be a dad. His relationship with Erin is really special.

The source continued, “Everyone thinks they will be amazing parents.”

Radcliffe has previously discussed starting a family, but stressed that he would keep his children out of the limelight.

The actor said he wouldn’t want his children to be famous after he rose to fame at such a young age.

“I want my kids, if and when they exist…I would love them to be around film sets.

The dad-to-be said film sets are “wonderful places” for children, but hopes his children avoid fame “at all costs”.

“I wouldn’t want fame for my kid,” he told Newsweek.
