Hugh Grant has revealed that he’s become a dad for the first time. The Bridget Jones star, 51, is reportedly delighted to have welcomed a baby daughter earlier this month.
“I can confirm he is the delighted father of a baby girl,” said Hugh’s spokesperson. “He and the mother had a fleeting affair and, while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive. He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms.”
Though the pregnancy was unexpected, friends of Hugh have reportedly told US Magazine that “he’s absolutely thrilled”. And the rumour mill has been working over-time about who the mum might be. Top of the list appears to be actress Tinglan Hong, who Hugh was linked with earlier this year.
