Devon Murray is a dad!

The 32-year-old Harry Potter star, who starred as pyrotechnic wizard Seamus in the film franchise, announced the birth of his first child, a boy, with girlfriend Shannon McCaffrey.

The two announced they were expecting back in July 2020 with a cute announcement.

“Yesterday 2/1/21 my life changed forever,” Devon first wrote the day after his son’s birthday (January 2).

He continued, “Shannon delivered our beautiful little boy ‘Cooper Michael Murray’ weighing 6lbs 10oz. Both are doing amazing now after a very long labour and a scary few minutes at the end.”

“It still hasn’t sunk in just yet that we have our very own little boy,” Devon admits. “I can’t wait to make the most amazing memories with Shannon and Cooper as we begin our little family.”

He added more praise for Shannon after the delivery: “I’m so amazed by Shannon and she is now my Hero. I’m so proud of her for everything she has gone through. I can’t wait to have you both home. It’s so hard having to leave you both. I will love you both forever until my last breathe ❤️🍼👶🏻.”

Devon is now the second Harry Potter star to welcome a baby during the course of the pandemic. This was the first!
