The Morning Tea: Rupert Grint Welcomes First Child, Bad Company Singer Brian Howe Dead At 66, Lily Allen Engaged To Stranger Things Star & More
Here's whats happening in the world of entertainment this Friday.
Congrats are in order for Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, who has welcomed his first child with girlfriend Georgia Groome.
A rep for Grint, 31, and Groome, 28, announced the exciting news, telling ET, "Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are delighted to confirm the birth of their baby girl. We would please ask that you respect their privacy at this very special time."
The actor, who played Ron Weasley in the wildly popular Harry Potter film franchise, first revealed he was expecting his first child after the notoriously-private pair were spotted in London, with Georgia concealing what looked to be a baby bump.
The pair have been linked since 2011, with marriage rumours circling the duo last year when Groome was spotted wearing a gold band on her left hand.
Former Bad Company singer Brian Howe has died from a heart attack in his new Lake Placid home on Wednesday. He was 66.
The British singer was found still conscious in his Florida home, “Though EMTs were able to have a short conversation with him, he slipped away and they were unable to revive him,” according to a statement.
Howe’s manager Paul Easton said: “It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the untimely passing of a loving father, friend and musical icon.”
“Finding the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts over losing my brother has been difficult." Howe's sister, Sadie, added. “Our family would like to thank you for your compassion and the outpouring of love we are receiving.”
It comes after the vocalist suffered an earlier heart attack in September 2017, later saying: “It was a bad one, apparently -- I don’t remember anything about it. I was driving. And I was found in my car at a stop sign, unconscious … It took me a long time to recover.”
Howe rose to fame as the lead singer for Bad Company in the '80s when he replaced singer Paul Rodgers, but left the band in 1994 when the musos reportedly fought over financial matters.
It looks like Lily Allen has confirmed she's engaged to Stranger Things star David Harbour.
Posting a snap to Instagram showcasing her rock-hard abs, the singer was spotted wearing a ring on her left hand, which she has reportedly rocked since December.
"Um…. engagement ring??????????????” asked one follower.
“First rule of engagement club…” Allen responded, referencing Brad Pitt’s line from the movie “Fight Club.”
Allen, 35, and Harbour, 45, went public with their relationship last September.
Allen was previously married to Sam Cooper, whom she divorced in 2018 and shares two daughters with.
