Irish actor Devon Murray, who played the role of Seamus Finnegan in the Harry Potter series, has announced that he is expecting his first child with his girlfriend, Shannon McCaffrey.
Devon shared a flat lay image of a knitted gray jumpsuit with a white elephant on it that had three sonogram pictures lying on top of it. He captioned his photo, “Baby Murray – 14th of January 2021.”
Several of Devon’s fellow Harry Potter co-stars shared their well-wishes on his post. Actress Evanna Lynch wrote, “Awwww congratulations Dev!! So happy for you! ❤️ you’re going to be such a fun dad!” Devon eagerly responded with his excitement to become a father writing, “thank you Evy. I’ve never been as excited in my life. That’s so nice of you to say, I’m going to try to be as good as I can.”
James Phelps, who played the role of Fred Weasley in the Harry Potter series wrote, “Great news mate. Huge congratulations.” Devon replied, “thanks buddy! I still can’t believe I’m going to be a Daddy.” It’s clear Devon is very excited to step into this new role as a father!
Devon and Shannon began dating in November of 2018. The love seemed to blossom quite well for this couple! Just a few months later on Valentine’s Day, they celebrated in Paris. Devon shared a lovely photo of them in front of the Eiffel Tower and wrote, “Only together 3 months but can’t imagine my life without [Shannon].”
Devon joins fellow Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, who played the role of Ronald Weasley. Rupert welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with his girlfriend Georgia Groome this past May.
