Daniel Radcliffe Opens Up About “Crazy and Intense” Parenting Journey

Daniel Radcliffe welcomed his first child with girlfriend Erin Darke back in April, and he recently opened up about their parenting journey. The Harry Potter alum revealed they welcomed a baby boy and described fatherhood as a “crazy and intense” experience.

Radcliffe recently discussed the new season of his TBS series Miracle Workers with Entertainment Tonight and took a moment to gush about his life as a new dad.

“It’s great. It’s crazy and intense, but he’s wonderful and Erin is amazing — it’s a real privilege also to have this time with him. I was always going to take some time off, which not everyone is able to do, and so I’m able to kind of just be here with him a lot, which is lovely,” said Radcliffe.

The Daily Mail broke the news about Radcliffe becoming a father back in April, when they shared a photo of the couple walking in New York City while Radcliffe pushed a stroller. The actor’s rep confirmed the news but shared no further details at the time.

Radcliffe also told Entertainment Tonight that fatherhood will change the way he approaches roles in the future. He intends to become even more selective about his projects in the next few years because he wants to spend as much time as possible with his son.
