Hugh Grant Fathered Secret Love ChildBy: Meaghan Ellis - January 30, 2014
About a Boy actor Hugh Grant has yet another baby boy of his own! It has been reported that the 53-year-old actor fathered a third love child with Swedish TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein who secretly gave birth to a baby boy in September 2012.
News of the child’s birth began circulating back in December when a revised version of the birth certificate was re-registered, listing Grant as the child’s father. US Weekly has since obtained a copy of the birth certificate which revealed that the child was born Sept. 3 at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital in London.
Coincidentally, calculations show that Eberstein and Tinglan Hong were both pregnant for Grant at the same time. Hong who is actually Grant’s girlfriend and the mother of his first child Tabitha who was born in October of 2011. If reports are correct, Grant and Eberstein’s love child was born only three months before Hong gave birth to her second child for the British actor.
A source close to Eberstein spoke exclusively with the Mercury News to address the situation. “They were pregnant with Hugh’s children at the same time. It’s an unusual arrangement,” a source told Mercury News.
“Anna is being supported by Hugh all the way. She lives in a very comfortable property in West London and knows that Hugh is there for her,” the source added to the Sun. “Anna’s parents in Sweden know all about the relationship and she has their blessing.”
However, it was noted by the NY Daily News that the Love Actually actor deliberately kept the child’s birth a secret as he tweeted an announcement when he and Hong’s second child was born.
“In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum,” he said.
Unfortunately, the actor made no mention of the baby boy he fathered with Eberstein, although in reality, the child is actually his second born based on the children’s birth dates. But, the Nine Months actor was also quite verbal about the birth of he and Hong’s first born back in October of 2011. Grant stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show where he shared his sentiments on becoming a father.
“Everyone was right all these years, saying: ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life.’ Now that I have a child, it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some.”
He added, “I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise. But it’s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese, because the mother’s is Chinese, means ‘happy surprise'”.
