Daniel Radcliffe Reflects on “Awesome” First Six Months as a New Parent

The first six months of parenting are somewhat of an adjustment period, and they can be pretty tough, but Daniel Radcliffe is enjoying them to the fullest. The Harry Potter star recently opened up about his first few months as a dad and said it’s been awesome to watch his baby grow up.

Radcliffe is currently busy promoting the upcoming Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along, co-starring Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendez. He recently appeared on Today with Hoda & Jenna to discuss this exciting musical, but the subject of parenting also came up.

After the host Jenna Bush Hager asked him how’s fatherhood, Radcliffe revealed he’s been enjoying every second of it.

“It’s awesome. I think I’ve been, really, I think a lot of people said, ‘Just get through the first six months after then after that it gets better.’ But I’ve kind of really enjoyed the first six months… It’s great. He’s incredible and I’m just in awe of my partner,” said Radcliffe.

Radcliffe welcomed a baby boy with his partner Erin Darke earlier this year, and they’re yet to share his name with the world. The couple made the first public appearance with their son when they were spotted walking the SAG-AFTRA picket lines in support of striking actors this summer.
