Bonnie Wright, well known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the “Harry Potter” movie, has given birth to a son, according to CNN. On Wednesday, Wright posted a photo of her newborn baby on Instagram, snuggled under a brown crocheted blanket and wearing an adorable striped hat.
She wrote in the caption, “Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo born at home on Tuesday 19th September. We’re all healthy and happy.” Wright went on to say that she and her husband, Andrew Lococo, are “so in love” with their new baby.
She added, “So grateful for our birth team that have held our hands throughout and made the journey so joyous and expanding. Birth is the wildest experience!”
She went on to thank doctors and midwives directly in her letter, saying, “Lastly thanks to Andrew my rock throughout birth quite literally as I squeezed onto you so tight and you never wavered. Elio has the most tender loving papa. Ok hormonal emotional extra long caption over!”
Wright was cast as the younger sister of Potter’s close friend Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint in the film franchise. She afterwards became Potter’s love interest.
According to CNN, Wright published her first book last year, “Go Gently: Actionable Steps to Nurture Yourself and the Planet.” The website describes the book as a “guide to positive change that we can all use to treat our home and ourselves gently, and do our part to help protect our beautiful planet.”
Wright has posted videos on her YouTube channel about preparing for her baby, such as “navigating newborn essentials” and “nesting,” in which she shows how she and her husband “have been trying as much as possible to get things for the baby that feel in line with our values.” This has meant buying used and receiving hand-me-downs from friends, she explained.
