Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe welcomes 1st child with partner

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe welcomes 1st child with partner

Yes, we are getting very old. 

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has announced the birth of his first child with his partner Erin Darke.

The birth of their child was confirmed by the actor’s publicist after the Daily Mail published photographs of the pair pushing a pram down New York. 

The actors have not yet revealed the sex or birthday of the child yet, keeping everything very hush hush (or Silencio for all you non-muggles out there).

Radcliffe and Darke have been together for around a decade after reportedly meeting on the set of the film Kill Your Darlings back in 2013. 

Radcliffe was 12 years old (let that sink in – he is 33 years old now) when he was cast as the titular character in the movie adaptation of JK Rowling’s books. 

Last year, he told news portals that he would love to have his children aspire to work behind the scenes in the film industry. 

“A dream would be for them to come on to a film set and be like ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department. I’d love to be something in the crew” he is quoted in having said.

Mattel have just unveiled the first ever Barbie doll with Down’s syndrome, as part of their Barbie Fashionistas line.

This particular line is specifically designed to represent diversity, challenge beauty standards around disabilities and support children in how they view themselves.

For this newest doll, Mattel claimed to have worked very closely with the National Down’s Syndrome Society to get the correct representations of the features.

President and CEO of the NDSS Kandi Pickard expressed how much this means to the community which, for the first time, has a Barbie doll that represents them and their struggles.

Mattel went to a lot of effort to properly provide accuracy by including, among other things, a palm with a single line – something often associated with Down’s syndrome – and a pink ankle foot orthotics to support feet and ankles.

Meanwhile, the doll also wears a necklace with three upward chevrons, which is a symbol that unites the Down syndrome community and representes the three copies of the 21st chromosome.

As we continue to dive into the ever-expanding world of 21st century fashion, luxury brands seem to be one-upping each other with absurd clothes & accessories… and Bottega Veneta are next.

From palm-sized Jacquemus handbags to Ikea-inspired Balenciaga tote bags costing just under €2,000, the obvious next step was a brown paper-bag-inspired luxury bag… with a $1,900 (€1,700) price tag.

Thankfully, the bag is actually made of plush leather rather than brown paper, but the 4-digit mark-up is still questionable. Under the guidance Bottega Veneta creative director Matthieu Blazy (also former Raf Simons deputy and Maison Margiela head designer), the brown bag is testament to the brand’s dedication to artisanal style and humble nature.

While the bag may turn the heads of most casual viewers, the brown bag definitely set the internet on fire, and if it’s a sign of what’s to come in the fashion world, we’re excited to see where it’s going.
