In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Hermione is in her forties, and married to Ron Weasley [played by Paul Thornley]. They have a daughter, and her name is Rose Granger-Weasley.

“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.” -Pottermore
