Date January 17, 2018 14:50

Hugh Grant has never really been the type of man who talks too much about his private and family life. But in a recent sit-down with PEOPLE TV, he shared some sweet and fun details about his children.


Baby number five for Hugh Grant

The 57-year-old British actor is thrilled to be expecting another child with girlfriend Anna Eberstein. This will be the couple's third child together. Hugh has two other children with his ex Tinglan Hong.


The new baby will join Grant and Eberstein's 2-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son plus the actor's two kids with Hong - Felix, 4, and Tabitha, 6.

Hugh Grant on fatherhood

Being a father of four and one on the way, it's safe to say that Grant is an old pro when it comes to the fatherhood experience.

He recently spoke with Jess Cagle for PEOPLE TV about his happy family life and the games he loved playing with his kids.


Fatherhood was the "nicest thing that's ever happened to me," the star admitted. He added that being surrounded by so much love was truly magical.

Suddenly you love someone more than yourself. It's unheard of in my case and they love you and it's all enchanting.

The 'Paddington 2' star also added that he and his children usually enjoy playing ridiculous and fun games, including one where he put nappies on his head to get a giggle out of them.

My little girl at two likes her nappies on my head.

Hugh Grant's complicated personal life

For someone who loves to keep things private, it's quite ironic that he has made headlines many times for his personal life and relationships with women.

It all began when he started dating actress Elizabeth Hurley during the filming of Remando Al Viento in 1988. The pair was the topic of media attention until their separation in May 2000, after allegations of infidelity on his part.


In 2011, he had his first child with Tinglan Hong after what his publicist described as a 'fleeting affair'. A year later, he and Eberstein had their first child together. However, he later reunited with Hong who gave birth to his third child Felix.
