Bonnie Wright recently gave birth to her first child and after finding out the name of the little one, everyone seems to be making the same joke.

The 32-year-old actress, best known for her portrayal of Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, took to Instagram to introduce her newborn to the world.

"Say hello to Elio Ocean Wright Lococo born at home on Tuesday 19th September," she started. "We’re all healthy and happy. Andrew and I are so in love with our sun! So grateful for our birth team that have held our hands throughout and made the journey so joyous and expanding."

She continued, stating that, "birth is the wildest experience," before going on to thank her midwives Tiffany and Taylor for all their support throughout the process. She also thanked her doctor and everyone else that was there to offer a helping hand.

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

Have a look at the adorable post below:

Of course, several of Wright's Harry Potter colleagues were thrilled for her and shared their happiness in the comment section.

"Huge congratulations," posted James Phelps, who played Ginny’s older brother Fred – twin to George – in the movies.

"Awwww congratulations Bonnie and Andrew!!! Welcome to Earth, Elio Ocean," wrote Evanna Lynch, who portrayed the quirky Luna Lovegood. "PS. Hermione’s birthday twin, I’m sure you’ve been told!!" she then added, referencing little Elio’s birthdate of September 19.

"Congratulations!! Welcome Elio, he’s beautiful," wrote Scarlett Hefner, known for playing Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson.

And Afshan Noor Azad-Kazi, best known for playing the role of Padma Patil in the franchise, also added: "Love you Elio."

Other famous faces included Harry Styles' older sister, Gemma, who commented: "Congratulations!" while poet and author Amanda Gorman also left kind words saying: "Congratulations!!! Welcome Elio, we’ve been waiting for you!"

And fans also joined in on the conversation, with a lot of them making the same joke about "another Weasley" being born into the family.

"Another Weasley, eh? I know just what to do with you… GRYFFINDOR!" wrote one user, quoting the sorting hat when it was first put on Ron Weasley's head in the Philosopher's Stone.

"AH!! ANOTHER WEASLEY?!? No but seriously he’s adorable, congratulations," another chimed in while a third also had the same idea, awarding 100 points to Gryffindor for Elio's birth.
