HUGH GRANT has finally broken his silence and talked about his new love, his 5-month-old baby girl TABITHA.
Hugh Grant finally welcomed his baby with his mystery woman, Chinese actress Tinglan Hong, five months ago but kept mum to celebrity news about his love child’s name. Fortunately, the 51-year-old Hollywood heartthrob and chick flick king, who dated model and actress Elizabeth Hurley for 13 years and but never got around to actually marrying or having his first baby with her, decided that it was better late than never and has revealed his newfound love affair with little Tabitha.
Grant tells The Guardian:
“Lots of people warned me that the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually. I thought, well, I’ll bluff through — but very little bluffing has been required.”
Although his first baby was born and conceived out of wedlock, the “Notting Hill” actor doesn’t love her any less and admits to her changing him in just a matter of months:
“I like my daughter very much. Has she changed my life? I’m not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I’m absolutely thrilled to have had her — I really am. And I feel a better person.”
Unlike many first-time Hollywood parents who instinctively spoil their children, Grand shares that he would be different with Tabitha and his future children:
“There are few things in life I believe in 100 percent, but one is not giving your children money. I see nothing but f-ck-ups among my trust fund friends. It’s like 99 percent f-ck-ups. So I would not want to do that to my children, no.”
It seems that Grant has no reservations about taking the leap while unwed to Hong, as they’ve had “a fleeting affair” so far. A source even adds:
“He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms.”
