The actress, who starred as Ginny Weasley in the popular fantasy film franchise, shared the news on her Instagram page yesterday (September 27) that their baby boy had arrived, as well as revealing his unique name.

Posting a picture of the newborn wrapped in a cosy blanket and hat, Bonnie gushed over her homebirth experience and those by her side as her child, Elio Ocean Wright Lococo, was born.

"Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo. Born at home on Tuesday, September 19," she began in the caption.

"We're all healthy and happy. Andrew and I are so in love with our son! So grateful for our birth team that have held our hands throughout and made the journey so joyous and expanding."

She then went on to thank her midwives and those who were there for her in the "healing postpartum days".

"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!"

Her Harry Potter co-stars were quick to congratulate the couple, with Luna Lovegood actress Evanna Lynch writing: "Awwww congratulations Bonnie and Andrew!!! Welcome to Earth, Elio Ocean!!! P.S. Hermione's birthday twin, I'm sure you've been told!!"

Fred Weasley star James Phelps wrote: "Huge congratulations!", and Scarlett Hefner, who played Pansy Parkinson, added: "Congratulations!! Welcome Elio, he's beautiful."

Meanwhile, earlier this month the star opened up on her time in the wizarding franchise, detailing her 'frustration' over a lack of screen time.

"Inevitably, a lot of the scenes of every character were chopped down from the book to the films. So you didn't really have as much to show in the films. [It was a] little disappointing because there were parts of the character that just didn't get to come through because there weren't the scenes to do that. That made me feel a bit anxious or just frustrated, I guess."
