Dad-To-Be Rupert Grint Surprised A Midwife Working On The Frontline & Honestly We're Too Fragile For This Right Now
Look at the world coming together!
Honestly, who six months ago would have thought we’d be uniting on this front?
Khloe Kardashian is shouting the elderly their groceries. High School Musical reunited to spread some joy and now Rupert Grint of the Harry Potter franchise is saying “hello”homora to NHS workers on the frontline in their family video calls.
Sam Halliwell, a midwife at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital, has isolated herself in a hotel as her husband has a severe kidney illness that leaves him at high risk of contracting coronavirus.
The 33-year-old health worker was having her family video call with her husband Phoeneix and their daughter when first of all Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman joined their chat as a part of One World: Together At Home.
Then Miriam Margolyes (aka Professor Sprout) jumped on too, straight from the Call The Midwife (classic) set.
“What a family you are my goodness,” Miriam said. “I am proud of you and I don’t even know you. I think you are one of the heroes of the world, Sam, I really do.”
BUT IT GETS BETTER.
Rupert Grint (aka Ron Weasley) then dials in and holy moly this is a chat we all want to be a part of – it’s a new level of Houseparty if you ask us!
“Rupert Grint’s on my web chat!” Sam exclaimed – same. We would be shocked too.
“Hearing your story is just insane," the Ron Weasley star told her. "The sacrifices that you make is truly inspiring. It’s very Gryffindor behaviour. Thank you so much."
Wow, being praised by a Weasley – a family that makes up 99% of Gryffindor House, let’s be real – is an honour we all wish we could have bestowed upon us.
He finished off by saying something would be arriving for her via owl post soon *lean into your child actor past Rupert, get riiiight in there*
Wonder what it could be...
There’s nothing that Rupert, Miriam or anyone doing something for a complete stranger, could do that won’t impress us.
Meanwhile, Rupert's also just announced he's about to become a father!
What a time to be Rupert Grint.
