Draco Malfoy is seen briefly with his wife and son, Scorpius Malfoy, in the Deathly Hallows epilogue. Astoria's name was not mentioned in the epilogue, but was revealed by J.K. Rowling in a post-DH interview with TIME Magazine. Rowling also revealed that Astoria is the younger sister of Daphne Greengrass, a Slytherin in Draco's year and friend of Pansy Parkinson.
Draco married the younger sister of a fellow Slytherin. Astoria Greengrass, who had gone through a similar (though less violent and frightening) conversion from pure-blood ideals to a more tolerant life view, was felt by Narcissa and Lucius to be something of a disappointment as a daughter-in-law. They had had high hopes of a girl whose family featured on the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight’, but as Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension.
While many fans ignore the existence of Astoria, other have embraced the relationship and made it a fairly popular post-Deathly Hallows ship. On AO3, it is the third-most popular relationship for Draco (albeit a distant third), after only Harry/Draco and Draco/Hermione. (This does, however, include many stories in which Draco/Astoria is not endgame.)
