Daniel has been in a relationship with Erin Darke since 2013; the two met on the set of Kill Your Darlings in 2013.

They are notoriously private about their relationship, but have both collaborated and supported their ventures several times.

Of their time on screen, he told People: "We definitely like [working together], but it's not something we want to do all the time," adding that: "We obviously met on film and so getting to do stuff on Miracle Workers with her last year was incredibly special and felt lovely. 

"Hopefully we'll get to do more in the future, but we also both write, so maybe we'd write something together at some point, and that would be cool."

Daniel is the second of the Harry Potter three - Daniel, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson - to welcome a child.

Rupert and his partner Georgia Groom welcomed their baby girl in May 2020.

Chatting on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live via video call, Daniel confirmed that he had spoken to Rupert over text regarding the happy news. He said: "I texted him the other day and said I was so happy for him and it's very very cool. It's also like super weird, for me, to think that we are all at the age where we are all having children, but we definitely are."
