The actress shared a photo of her newborn baby on Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 28. "Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo born at home on Tuesday 19th September. We’re all healthy and happy," she wrote in the caption.

Wright said she and her husband Andrew Lococo are "so in love" with their new addition.

"So grateful for our birth team that have held our hands throughout and made the journey so joyous and expanding. Birth is the wildest experience!" she continued, referring to her doctors.

"Lastly thanks to Andrew my rock throughout birth quite literally as I squeezed onto you so tight and you never wavered. Elio has the most tender loving papa. Ok hormonal emotional extra long caption over!" she concluded.

Wright was cast in the film franchise as the younger sister of Potter's close friend Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint. She later on became Potter's love interest.

Wright released her first book last year, Go Gently: Actionable Steps to Nurture Yourself and the Planet. According to the book's website, it's a "guide to positive change that we can all use to treat our home and ourselves gently, and do our part to help protect our beautiful planet."

Wright has posted videos on her YouTube channel about preparing for her baby, such as "navigating newborn essentials" and "nesting," where she shows how she and her husband "have been trying as much as possible to get things for the baby that feel in line with our values." This meant buying used and receiving hand-me-downs from friends, she explained. (ANI)
