As per the reports, Rupert and Georgia are dating since 2011 and last year Georgia was spotted wearing a gold band which sparked rumours of the couple getting married.

Ready to start family

In an interview with theguardian in 2018, the Harry Potter actor said he would like to settle down and start a family. Talking about naming his kids, the actor said if he has a son then he would name him Ron.

"I'd like to settle down and have kids soon. "If I had a son, would I call him Ron? It's quite a good name, but probably not. And Grint's a tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with." Grint said.
