Over the weekend, we were greeted to a devastating (kidding!) news. It looks like the Daniel Radcliffe engaged news we have been hearing have come to fruition. The world-renowned actor has supposedly proposed to his girlfriend of four years, Erin Darke. Sources said he popped the question and they have been shopping for rings.
The reports said that Radcliffe is sparing no expense for Darke’s engagement ring. The famously thrifty actor thinks that this is a very special occasion, so his girlfriend can have any ring she wants. Apparently, they have been talking about getting married for a while, so this should not come as a surprise.
Daniel Radcliffe engaged: How true is it?
The Daniel Radcliffe engaged news come as a surprise because the actor has always been overprotective about his personal life. He has been dating Darke for more than four years since meeting her on the set of Kill Your Darlings. They are both settled in Manhattan, where the millionaire-actor owns a number of homes, but rarely have they made public outings as a couple.
The reports said that Radcliffe and the Flint-native actress are planning a 2018 wedding on the banks of Lake Michigan. There were also some who said the wedding would be where the Hogwarts Castle was shot. This sound rather ominous because Radcliffe has always tried to get away from the shadow of Harry Potter.
The would-be wedding would be a reunion of some sorts for the Harry Potter child stars. Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) are set to make an appearance when Radcliffe marries his girlfriend. Maybe we’ll even see Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) there, right?
Engaged rumors not true at all
Hollywood news site Gossip Cop, however, said the engaged rumors involving Daniel Radcliffe are not true. According to the site’s “reliable source,” the Harry Potter actor never proposed to Darke and they have yet to go ring shopping.
The website said they are not surprised with such an inaccurate report. Previous reports also said that Radcliffe and Darke are planning to have their wedding at Hogwarts Castle from the infamous movie adaptation of Harry Potter.
There were also some reports that Radcliffe relapsed on drugs and alcohol despite the fact that the actor has been open about his sobriety and recovery.
It’s not surprising, however, that Daniel Radcliffe engaged news continue to hound the actor. He’s 27 years old, after all, and he has always seemed so in love with Darke.
