After 10 long years of staying away from Instagram, Rupert Grint has now joined the scene. And, as Rupert coined the term himself, we’re calling this momentous occasion “Grint on the Gram”!
While Rupert’s sudden appearance on this public platform is already attention grabbing, what we really can’t get enough of is the cutest picture he posted to introduce both his excitingly new IG profile and darling daughter.
Rupert’s first IG post shows his and Georgina Groome’s 6-month-old daughter, Wednesday, all snuggled up on her father’s arm. The beaming new dad looks like he couldn’t be more proud of his little angel.
The caption on the “Harry Potter” star’s post read, “Hey Instagram….only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert.”
It’s been barely 24 hours since Rupert showed up on his fan’s IG feeds and the actor, who played the much adored role of Ron Weasley, already has nearly 2 million followers at the time of writing!
This throng of excited fans eagerly left their comments welcoming the cute pair onto the popular social media platform. Some of their pleasantly dramatic comments read “THE LEGEND HAS ARRIVED” and “Weasley is our king! Welcome, Rupert!”
Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy) also joined in on welcoming his fellow “Harry Potter” series cast member with a comment that’s bringing back the best nostalgic feelings from our favourite childhood movie!
Tom’s cheeky comment read, “Welcome Weasley, it’s about time.” The 33-year-old actor also lovingly added, “Love to Wednesday xx”.
And of course Rupert’s mischievous on screen brother, James Phelps, had to leave a rather amusing comment as well. The 1/2 of the Fred and George Weasley twins wrote just one hilarious word reading, “Nougat.” That’s it. Did you let out a giggle? Because we sure did!
Seeing a happy Rupert with his sweet daughter is definitely bringing Instagram users some much needed joy during this difficult year. Thank you for the good vibes, Rupert. You always knew how to make us smile.
P.S. Your daughter may be a muggle, but she sure does look magical! Welcome to Instagram.
