There’s a new student headed for Hogwarts.
“Harry Potter” actor Devon Murray and girlfriend Shannon McCaffrey Quinn welcomed their first child together — a son named Cooper — on Saturday.
“Yesterday 2/1/21 my life changed forever,” Murray, 32, wrote on Instagram along with a photo of their new baby and a cupcake. “Shannon delivered our beautiful little boy ‘Cooper Michael Murray’ weighing 6lbs 10oz.”
Murray, who played Seamus Finnegan in the “Harry Potter” film franchise, wrote that mother and baby were “doing amazing after a very long labour and a scary few minutes at the end.”
He also expressed how excited he was to take on the role of being a dad.
“It still hasn’t sunk in just yet that we have our very own little boy,” he said. “I can’t wait to make the most amazing memories with Shannon and Cooper as we begin our little family.”

And he couldn’t have been prouder of his girlfriend.
“I’m so amazed by Shannon and she is now my Hero,” he said. “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 (sic) ❤️🍼👶🏻.”
The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together in July. They have been dating since November 2018.
