The 28-year-old, who is also rumoured to have dated her former co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is best known for playing Georgia Nicholson in the beloved coming-of-age comedy.

The expectant parents also sparked marriage rumours last year when Georgia was snapped wearing a gold band on her wedding ring finger during a cosy lunch date with Rupert.

In 2018, Rupert opened up about his wishes to start a family with Georgia and joked about naming his son after his popular Harry Potter character.

He told The Guardian: "Turning 30 felt strange. It just doesn’t feel like I’m there yet and I don’t know what the future holds. I’m just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters and see what happens.

"I’d like to settle down and have kids soon. If I had a son, would I call him Ron? It’s quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint’s a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with."
