From Love Interests to Life Partners
Radcliffe and Darke’s love story began in 2012 on the set of Kill Your Darlings, where they played love interests. As their on-screen chemistry sparked a real-life connection, they have remained private about their relationship.
However, the couple’s mutual support for each other’s projects is evident, with Darke accompanying Radcliffe to the TIFF premiere of Weird: The Al Yankovic Story in September. The couple has even had the opportunity to work together again on an episode of Radcliffe’s show, Miracle Workers.
Daniel’s Dreams For Their Child
In an October conversation with Evan Rachel Wood for Newsweek, Radcliffe discussed the appeal of film sets and his aspirations for his future children. He expressed his desire for his kids to experience the captivating world of film sets without the pressure of fame, possibly finding their passion in the art department or the crew.

As they embark on the adventure of parenthood, Radcliffe and Darke have much to celebrate, including a decade-long relationship filled with love and happiness. Radcliffe has previously shared with PEOPLE his contentment with his personal life, stating, “I’ve got a really nice life. I’ve been with my girlfriend for a decade pretty much. We’re really happy.” Now, with the arrival of their first child, the couple is sure to experience even more magical moments together.
