Harry Potter actor Devon Murray, who played wizard Seamus Finnigan in the fantasy film series, and his girlfriend Shannon McCaffrey have welcomed their first child: a baby boy! Murray announced the happy news on Sunday via Instagram with a photo featuring a cupcake with a blue footprint in the foreground while his new baby slept in the background.
“Yesterday 2/1/21 my life changed forever. Shannon delivered our beautiful little boy ‘Cooper Michael Murray’ weighing 6lbs 10oz,” said Murray. He adds that both mother and son “are doing amazing now after a very long labour and a scary few minutes at the end.”
Murray continues by saying how excited he and McCaffrey are to begin making memories with their newborn. He also goes on to praise his girlfriend, writing he is “so amazed by Shannon and she is now my Hero.”
The actor previously announced that McCaffrey was expecting back in July. Congratulations to the new parents!
