Only 21 hours after joining Instagram, former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has amassed more than two million followers (and counting). 

The actor has kept a pretty low profile since the ending of the popular movie series, and it was only earlier this year that news broke of his marriage to actress Georgie Groome.

The pair welcomed their first child this past May, and it was for this special reason Grint says he decided to join the platform. 

"Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert," he wrote to caption a sweet image of himself holding his baby girl. 

How cute!

We're sure his fans are hoping to see more of Grint and his family!
