In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows we are informed that Remus Lupin and Tonks have a child.

However, both Remus and Tonks die leaving Teddy without parents.

In light of this - who ultimately takes care of Teddy?

1 Answer 1


Nymphadora Tonk's mom (Teddy's Grandmother on mother's side) Andromeda Tonks.

From 2007/07/30 Bloomsbury Chat with JKR:

Tineke: Did teddy grow up living with his grandmother?
JKR: Yes, Teddy was raised by Andromeda.
JKR: However, unlike Neville, who was also raised by his grandmother
JKR: Teddy had his godfather, Harry, and all his father's friends in the Order, to visit and stay with.
