Baby Wednesday's name is thought to have been inspired by The Addams Family's Wednesday Addams.

And Rupert's first post revealing the good news has already gained him two million followers on Instagram.

In the lovely photo, he can be seen posing with little Wednesday, who is wearing a bright pink jumper - but with not enough hair to show if she's inherited her father's iconic ginger gene yet!

One of Rupert's Harry Potter cast mates made sure to congratulate him on the lovely news online.

'Welcome Weasley , it’s about time. Love to Wednesday,' penned Draco Malfoy star Tom Felton.

Meanwhile, Potter fans were utterly thrilled.

While another joked, 'ANOTHER WEASLEY!'

'Look at her tiny hands 😭😭,' another commenter swooned.

Rupert and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging actress Georgia confirmed the birth of Wednesday earlier this year, releasing a statement reading, 'Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl. We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time.'

The new parents have been dating since around 2011 but have kept their romance pretty private for the majority of the time.

However, it seems that social media newbie Rupert may be preparing to open up on his life as a father a little more, and we can't wait!
