    In fact, during yesterday's episode of Watch What Happens Live, Daniel Radcliffe revealed that he recently reached out to Rupert to congratulate him on the big news.

    "I texted him the other day. I'm so happy for him. It's very, very cool."

    "It's also, like, super weird for me to think that we are all at the age where we are having children, but we definitely are."
