Remember Seamus Finnigan from Harry Potter? You know, the kid in the ‘Sorcerer’s Stone‘ who blew smoke in his face during Charms class? Well, actor Devon Murray is going to be a father!
On Instagram, Murray revealed recent sonograms from an ultrasound showing the soon-to-be “Baby Murray” as well as his girlfriend’s, Shannon McCaffrey, due date: January 14, 2021. The thirty one-year old actor is, understandably, overjoyed with the news, sharing in the comments that he and McCaffrey are, “both so happy, excited and nervous and can not wait until he/she are in our arms.”
The news comes a few months after fellow Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint and longtime girlfriend, Georgia Groome, welcomed their own baby girl into the world.
In response to Grint’s announcement, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 30, remarked that it was “super weird for me to think that we are all of the age where we’re having children.” But also stressed that he was overjoyed for Grint and Groome, saying “it’s very, very cool” and expressing hope to become a father himself one day.
Given that we all watched Daniel, Rupert, and Devon grow up throughout the course of the eight Harry Potter films from children to the adults they are today, I think I can speak for everyone when I agree that it’s super weird seeing our child stars grow up, but that it’s also super exciting.
