If you didn't know Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend Erin Darke have been together for over ten years, after meeting on a film set back in 2012.

Here's a look back at a complete timeline of Daniel and Erin’s relationship, starting with the most recent update.

25th April 2023 - The couple welcome their first child

Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke have officially welcomed their first child, a rep for Radcliffe confirmed earlier today.

The couple previously announced they were expecting a baby in March earlier this year. Big congrats!!


The couple first met on the set of the film Kill Your Darlings, where they played a couple – life imitating art!

Speaking about how they got together with People in 2019, Daniel, now 33, shared: “It'll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other,” he said, addressing a steamy sex scene they have in the film. “Our characters are meeting and flirting with each other, so there is this kind of sweet record of us just meeting for the first time and flirting.”

He shared that they hit it off immediately and soon after, they began dating, with him confirming during an interview with Andy Cohen in 2013 that he was officially off the market.


Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than making a couple debut on the red carpet. Erin, 38, and Daniel made a joint appearance at the Tony Awards in 2014, and they looked pretty loved up. He also told Us Weekly that year that Erin is his “absolutely his best friend."

Other than that, the couple kept their relationship under wraps for a while.

In a rare interview with Vulture, Daniel and Erin shared that they were quarantining together in New York - where they live - during the coronavirus pandemic.


More rare public appearances! The couple attended not one, but two red carpet events together that year and in an interview with People, Daniel opened up about their lifestyle.

"I've got a really nice life. I've been with my girlfriend for a decade pretty much. We're really happy," he said, adding that they'd like to write something together in the future.

The couple attended the premiere for Daniel's film The Lost City, where Erin debuted new blonde hair:
