Bonnie Wright’s former Harry Potter co-stars have greeted her with congratulations on the birth of her new baby son, and many admirers couldn’t help but make the same kind remark.
The actress, 32, delivered her first kid with her husband Andrew Lococo, whom she married in a lavish ceremony in California in 2022.
On Wednesday, she shared a gorgeous photo of her newborn boy and disclosed his name to the world on Instagram.
‘Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo born at home on Tuesday 19th September,’ Bonnie, who played Ginny Weasley throughout the eight-part film franchise, wrote.
‘We’re all healthy and happy. Andrew and I are so in love with our sun 🌞!’
She went on to say she was ‘so grateful’ to the birth team who made her journey ‘so joyous’, acknowledging that birth ‘is the wildest experience!’.

Naturally, some of her Harry Potter coworkers were overjoyed for her and expressed their joy in the comments section.
‘Huge congratulations!!’ posted James Phelps, who played Ginny’s older brother Fred – twin to George – in the movies.
‘Awwww congratulations Bonnie and Andrew!!! Welcome to Earth, Elio Ocean!!! 💙🌊,’ added Evanna Lynch, who portrayed the kooky Luna Lovegood.
‘ps. Hermione’s birthday twin, I’m sure you’ve been told!!’ she then added, referencing little Elio’s birthdate of September 19.
‘Congratulations!! Welcome Elio, he’s beautiful 💙,’ wrote Scarlett Byrne, known for playing Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson.
Scarlett, who married Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s son Cooper in 2019, received her own twin children, Betsy Rose, three, in March last year.
Harry Potter fans couldn’t help but make the same lovely joke in the comments, as several referenced from J.K. Rowling’s films and novels.
‘Another Weasley, eh?’ commented one fan, while another chimed in: ‘Another weasley !! Welcome to gryffindor 😍❤️.’
‘He must be a weasley!!!!! 20 points,’ quipped a third.
This is, of course, in reference to the Sorting Hat’s announcement ‘Ha! Another Weasley! I know just what to do with you’ in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when it’s placed on Ron’s head.
‘We’re having a baby!’ she tweeted at the time, sharing stunning photographs of herself holding her baby belly while standing with her husband. I’m really happy to show them around this wonderful area.
‘What a wild and humbling journey pregnancy is, transforming to make space for new life.
‘Andrew and I can’t wait to meet our baby later this year and become parents.’
Other Harry Potter alumni who have become parents include Daniel and his fiancée Erin Darke, who had a baby boy earlier this year, and Rupert Grint and his spouse Georgia Groome, who had a daughter in 2020.
