Speaking with ET, the 33-year-old explained how ‘fatherhood changed my perspective’.

He said: “It's a weird place to be, especially when Wednesday first came. I remember I brought her to the set this season.

“She thought she was at Sesame Street, which was very far away from Sesame Street. But yeah, it's really interesting."

"It's great,” Rupert continued, “I’m absolutely loving being a dad. It's just the best thing.

“It's amazing how it completely kind of takes over everything. It's all I really care about, so it's been great."

Rupert and Georgia, who tend to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, welcomed their 17-month-old daughter last year after nine years together.

Rupert is set to give us all a hit of nostalgia in Harry Potter’s 20th Anniversary Reunion, Return to Hogwarts, which is due to air on New Year’s Day.

The reunion episode will see the biggest stars from the movie series including Rupert himself as well as Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Tom Felton reunite to revisit their childhood on set of the legendary films.
