Harry Potter actress Scarlett Byrne is expecting her first child with Hugh Hefner’s son Cooper.
The 29-year-old actress - who played Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson in the Harry Potter movies - and the 28-year-old Playboy heir announced their happy news on social media.
Byrne wrote on Instagram: “Cooper and I are delighted to share that we have a little one on the way. Our hearts are filled with gratitude and joy, and the two of us can’t wait to meet the newest little Hefner.”
Hefner said: “Scarlett and I have been blessed with wonderful news we are ecstatic to share. This summer we will be welcoming a new member to the family. The two of us could not be happier as we wait for the arrival of our little one.”
Byrne’s Harry Potter co-star Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood in the film franchise, commented: “Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Glowing angel mother to be!!”
The couple - who have been dating since August 2015 - tied the knot at a registry office in Ventura, California in November 2019.

Cooper is the youngest of the late Hugh Hefner’s four children. He has a brother Marston, who is just one year older than him, who the Playboy mogul fathered with second wife Kimberley Conrad.
He also has a half-sister Christie, 66, and 64-year-old half-brother David, who Hef had with his first wife Millie Williams.
Cooper is a businessman and was previously the chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises.
Hugh Hefner died in 2017 aged 91, leaving behind an estimated $50 million fortune and a business empire based around the Playboy brand.
