Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint has been dating girlfriend Georgia Groome since 2011.
In December 2018, a photo of Ron Weasley actor Rupert Grint and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging star Georgia Groome went viral as the world discovered they’ve been in a relationship since 2011.
The couple have now been together for a decade and share a daughter, who they welcomed in May 2020.
Rupert, 30, and Georgia have managed to keep their relationship successfully out of the spotlight, but here’s everything you need to know about their romance.

Georgia is a 29-year-old actress, most famous for playing Georgia Nicolson in Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.
She also starred in film London to Brighton, The Bill, and a number of short films as well as a role on stage in Tusk Tusk.
It’s not known exactly how long the stars have been dating, but when the news of their relationship went viral last year the tweet claimed they’ve been together since 2011.
The tweet said: “I was today years old when I found out Georgia from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging has been going out with Ron Weasley since 2011?”

Alongside the tweet was a photo of them together, with Georgia holding her arm around her beau.
In April this year they sparked marriage rumours after they were pictured out and about with rings on their wedding fingers – something a spokesperson for Rupert swiftly denied.
Georgia and Rupert welcomed their daughter - named Wednesday - during lockdown in May 2020.
Speaking about becoming a dad during the pandemic, the Harry Potter star previously told Glamour: "Yeah, it’s been tough. It’s a time when you want as much support as you can get from your family and your friends; it’s a very isolating thing, this lockdown, so we really have kind of been on our own.
"But there’s positives with that. It’s been great to work everything out for ourselves, without so many opinions. We’ve really bonded with Wednesday. It’s been intense, but great."
In January 2021, Rupert gave a rare interview with Glamour, where he spoke about his relationship with Georgia.
Speaking about how alike they are, he said: "It’s a very natural thing - we’re just best friends. We’re kind of the same person; we think the same way.
"That’s always made it work - that’s why it’s lasted. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, but it works and it’s great."
