Daniel Radcliffe talks about becoming a dad for the first time. He known for his role as Harry Potter, has shared that he recently became a father to a baby boy with his girlfriend, Erin Darke. The couple has been together for more than a decade, and their son was born in April.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Radcliffe discussed his decision to take a break from his acting career to spend time with his family. He expressed his joy in being able to be present and spend quality time with his infant son.
Radcliffe and Darke kept the news of their pregnancy private, but confirmed it in March when they were spotted together in New York, with Darke’s baby bump visible.
Currently, Radcliffe’s priority is to spend as much time as possible at home with his son. He mentioned that he may be more selective with his work in the coming years, as he wants to ensure he doesn’t miss out on important moments with his child.
However, Radcliffe made it clear that he is not planning to quit acting altogether. He emphasized that he enjoys acting and it is an integral part of his life. He also discussed how his own experiences as a child actor will influence his parenting style, hoping that if his future children are interested in the film industry, they will find their own paths within it, away from the pressures of fame.
Radcliffe wants his kids to have a positive experience on film sets, without the overwhelming fame that can sometimes come with it. He believes that film sets can be wonderful places for children, but it’s important to protect them from the negative aspects of fame.
In conclusion, Radcliffe is embracing fatherhood and cherishing the opportunity to spend time with his newborn son. While he plans to continue his acting career, he intends to balance it with being a present and involved father.
