Daniel opened to People about the first time he met Erin in 2020, saying: ‘It’ll be a hell of a story to tell our kids one day because of what our characters do with each other’ referring to a sex scene the couple has in the film. 

He continued: ‘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.’

In 2015, he spoke to Playboy about how he was immediately attracted to her in their first scene together in the film. 

He said: ‘There’s no acting going on—not from my end, anyway. There’s a moment when she makes me laugh, and I’m laughing as me and not as my character. 

‘She was incredibly funny and smart. I knew I was in trouble.’

Erin told People that the pair bonded over “how much we really love what we do, and there’s something that’s really beautiful and really lovely about being with someone who just innately understands that about you.’

She added: ‘We’re both incredibly supportive of the other person’s career.’

Daniel is most famous for starring as the titular Harry Potter in the movie series, while Erin has starred in Still Alice, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Good Girls Revolt.

The couple shared the screen together once again in 2021, in a an episode of The Miracle Workers, and they haven’t ruled out working together again.

Daniel said: ‘We obviously met on film and so getting to do stuff on Miracle Workers with her last year was incredibly special and felt lovely.

‘Hopefully we’ll get to do more in the future, but we also both write, so maybe we’d write something together at some point, and that would be cool.”

Both notoriously private, the couple rarely step out together in professional settings but live together in New York City. 

Daniel and Emma’s news comes after his co-star Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley, became a dad in May 2020 when girlfriend Georgia Groom gave birth to a baby girl.

Daniel spoke about the idea of being a parent as he revealed on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that he’s texted his congratulations to pal Rupert, 34.

He said: ‘I texted him the other day and said I was so happy for him and it’s very very cool. It’s also like super weird, for me, to think that we are all at the age where we are all having children, but we definitely are.’
