Rupert Grint Admits He Was Absolutely 'Terrified' In His First Days As A Father

Rupert Grint is opening up about his first days of fatherhood.

The 32-year-old former Harry Potter star welcomed his first child, a daughter named Wednesday, with wife Georgia Groome, late last year.

In an interview with Esquire, Rupert revealed that that in his first days as a dad he got almost no sleep.

“I don’t want to go too into detail, but the first night was just terrifying,” he admitted. “You can’t sleep at all, just constantly checking that she’s breathing.”

Rupert added that “sleeping, in general, for me, is something I’ve really struggled with. I think as a kid, people always said, ‘They died in their sleep,’ so I always thought sleep was a really dangerous, dangerous thing.”

In another recent interview, Rupert gushed over Wednesday.

The baby was actually the reason he joined Instagram in the first place!
