Hugh Grant had a reputation of an eternal bachelor. He used to tell in his interviews, that if a woman wants to have a cozy home and four kids, she shouldn’t date him. But his opinion changed with age, and in September, 2011 the actor finally became a father for the first time.
He didn’t plan to have a daughter with a restaurant worker Tinglan Hong, who comes from Chinese family. But Tabitha Jing Xi Grant, whose name is translated as “the happy accident”, has become a source of pride and joy for middle-aged father. Because of journalist’s attention to Hugh Grant and Tinglan Hong, the actor couldn’t witness the birth of Tabitha. He supported the mother of his kid at a distance not to attract paparazzi attention to the hospital, where Tinglan stayed.
Hugh opened up to Ellen DeGeneres at her show that becoming a father turned into a great experience for him. “That was not planned, but that was absolutely wonderful”, he told. Now Hugh stays in touch with his daughter and even bought a huge mansion in London for her and her mother. Tabitha’s godmother is Elizabeth Hurley.
