Daniel Radcliffe is an English actor and known for playing the beloved wizard Harry Potter in the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s popular book series. During his career, Radcliffe has won and been nominated for a number of accolades and honors.
However, in recent years, the actor has managed to keep his personal life private, particularly his decade-long relationship with actress Erin Darke. The couple was recently in the news after photographs of Darke with a noticeable baby bump surfaced on social media, prompting speculation about whether the couple is expecting their first child. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Radcliffe’s girlfriend and their relationship.
Daniel Radcliffe And His Girlfriend, Erin Darke Met On Set
Erin Darke is a 38-year-old actress from Flint, Michigan, who has worked in numerous movies and TV shows. She has appeared in films such as the Beach Boys biopic Love & Mercy and Oscar-nominated Still Alice, and she has taken on recurring roles in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Good Girls Revolt.
Darke and Radcliffe met on the set of their 2013 film Kill Your Darlings, in which they played lovers who have a sex scene together. In a 2015 interview with Playboy, Radcliffe admitted that he was immediately attracted to Darke during their first scene together, saying, “There’s no acting going on—not from my end, anyway. There’s a moment when she makes me laugh, and I’m laughing as me and not as my character. She was incredibly funny and smart. I knew I was in trouble.”
When she’s not acting, Darke enjoys watching sports, particularly football, and hockey. She is a devoted fan of the Detroit Lions and the Detroit Red Wings, and she often posts about their games on social media. Radcliffe has also mentioned that his girlfriend is a sports enthusiast, saying on Late Night with Seth Meyers, “My girlfriend is from Michigan, so there’s always a Lions game on Thanksgiving. With the misery or joy that entails.”
Inside Daniel And Erin’s Relationship
After working together on Kill Your Darlings, Radcliffe and Darke began dating and have been together for about a decade. Despite being in the public eye, the couple has managed to keep their relationship out of the tabloids. In fact, many Harry Potter fans were surprised to learn that Radcliffe had a long-term girlfriend. In a 2014 interview with Us Weekly, Radcliffe referred to Darke as his best friend, saying, “I think that’s the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone I’m in a relationship with. You want that person to be your best friend. In the case of Erin, we definitely are.”
The couple has also been supportive of each other’s careers. Darke has spoken about how she and Radcliffe bonded over their love of acting and how they support each other’s goals. In a 2020 interview with Vulture, Darke said, “We’ve talked a lot about how much we really love what we do, and there’s something that’s really beautiful and really lovely about being with someone who just innately understands that about you.”
Are Daniel And Erin Expecting A Baby?
Recently, the couple made headlines when photographs of Darke with a noticeable baby bump surfaced on social media. Fans quickly began speculating about whether the couple is expecting their first child. However, neither Radcliffe nor Darke has confirmed or denied the rumors. The couple has always kept their relationship private, and it’s possible that they will choose to keep their family plans private as well.
