Rupert Grint and his partner Georgia Groome struggled with becoming first-time parents amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Harry Potter star welcomed his daughter, Wednesday, last May, just two months after the UK's first lockdown, and admitted in an interview that going without any help from friends and family was difficult. 

However, Grint revealed that there have also been positives about the experience, explaining: "It's been great to work everything out for ourselves, without so many opinions. We've really bonded with Wednesday". 

He added: "It's been intense, but great."
