Eddie Redmayne talks baby Iris at the Canadian premiere of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

By Anna Redman

Eddie Redmayne is currently criss-crossing the world on a whirlwind international press tour for his new flick Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but Hello! has learned that the actor's heart and thoughts are safe at home with his daughter Iris and wife Hannah Bagshawe.

The Oscar winner gushed about his four-month-old daughter on the red carpet in Toronto, where hundreds of fans braved the rainy weather to catch a glimpse of the star, who plays the lead character in J.K. Rowling's latest magical creation.

"Everybody keeps saying with this film 'Oh my god, are you making it because you’ve got a new daughter?'" Eddie tells Hello! Canada. "And I’m like 'Well, she is four and a half months, so it may be a while before she goes to watch this.'"

The latest film in the Harry Potter franchise takes place across the ocean from the original series, in 1926 New York, decades before the births of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Instead, the film follows the life of Newt Scamander, a Magizoologist who has been travelling the world studying magical beasts.

This new wizard heads to America after being expelled from the magical school of Hogwarts, and quickly sends New York City into chaos when the creatures he's collected on his travels are accidentally let loose.

Eddie returns to Hollywood after welcoming daughter Iris in June.
