JK Rowling's eldest daughter is reportedly engaged.

Jessica Rowling Avantes is said to be tying the knot, but the Harry Potter author is keeping the details of the wedding planning under wraps, the Daily Mail reports.

Aa rep for JK Rowling declined to comment when contacted by the Mirror.

Jessica, 27, is Rowling's eldest child, who she shares with her first husband, former TV journalist Jorge Arante.

Rowling, 55, has often told the story of how Jessica was just a baby sleeping in her pram while the writer would work on the first Harry Potter book in Edinburgh coffee shops.

Rowling had split up with Avantes when Jessica was just a few months old.

The former couple had met when Rowling moved Portugal to speak English and their relationship ended in 1993.

She told The Times: "Obviously, you do not leave a marriage after that very short period of time unless there are serious problems.

"I'm not the kind of person who bales out without there being serious problems.

"My relationship before that lasted seven years. I'm a long-term girl. And I had a baby with this man. But it didn't work. And it was clear to me that it was time to go, and so I went.

"I never regretted it."

She has admitted that she struggled with money as a single mum and was as "poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless."
