AceShowbiz - Hugh Grant is on diaper duty again. He recently welcomed his third child with his partner Anna Eberstein. Hugh's ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley broke the news when she promoted her show "The Royals" on Tuesday, March 6, saying the actor had welcomed baby No. 5 at 57.
"I'm very lucky that 31 years into our friendship, he's still my best friend in the whole. He's really a great guy," she said. "I see him a lot. I speak to him a lot. You know, he's now a father of five, he has five kids and he's a great dad. Yeah, will he remain my best friend for life."
Two days later, Elizabeth reconfirmed the news during her appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen". When asked whether she was surprised that Hugh has so many kid, she replied, "He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He's an enchanting dad. (He is) really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It's improved him. He's gone up the scale."
The news mentioning that the actor and the Swedish television producer were expecting a baby came in January when the couple was spotted in a New York city airport. At that time, Anna's baby bump could be seen peeking through her black coat.
The actor currently has five children. He has two children with his ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong. They are 6-year-old Tabitha Xaio Xi and 5-year-old Felix Chang. He and Anna have two other children aged 5 and 3.
Since his mother's death, Hugh has worked as a fundraiser and ambassador for Marie Curie Cancer Care. He was last seen in "Paddington 2" which was released on January 12 in the United States.
