Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright has given birth to a baby boy.

Bonnie, who played Ginny Weasley in the magical franchise, welcomed her first child with husband Andrew Lococo at home on 19th September.

The 32 year old announced her baby boy's arrival on Wednesday as she shared an adorable picture on Instagram and revealed his unique name – Elio Ocean Wright.

She wrote alongside the sweet picture of her son: "Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo born at home on Tuesday 19th September.

"We’re all healthy and happy. Andrew and I are so in love with our sun! [sun emoji] 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 added: "Birth workers are amazing ! 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!"

Ginny's co-star Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood, was one of the first to send a sweet message of congratulations.

She commented: "Awwww congratulations Bonnie and Andrew!!! Welcome to Earth, Elio Ocean!!! ps. Hermione’s birthday twin, I’m sure you’ve been told!!"

Scarlett Hefner, who played Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson, wrote: "Congratulations!! Welcome Elio, he’s beautiful."

Ginny and Andrew shared their exciting baby news back in April, as she showed off her bump.

She added in the caption: "We’re having a baby! So excited to share this beautiful land with them. 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. It feels like they’re coming to say hello in the little rainbow orb across my belly."

Bonnie starred in all eight Harry Potter films as Ginny and has since gone on to feature in several independent titles and launch a career as a director. She has worked on making short films with her production company and also directed music videos, including for Scarlett Johansson's song Iguana Bird.

Bonnie is also a sustainability expert, and has shared her expert knowledge on the matter during an appearance on ITV's This Morning.

As an avid environmental activist, she released her first book last year, which was titled: Go Gently: Actionable Steps to Nurture Yourself and the Planet.

Bonnie explained that her love for sustainability affected her wedding planning when she married her husband.

“It was important to reflect our love for the environment and use sustainable materials instead of any single-use packaging, lean into our creativity and make things ourselves, and source everything as locally and seasonally as possible,” she told Brides magazine.
