Hugh Grant welcomes baby no. 5

Washington: Hugh Grant is now a father of five!

Grant’s ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley revealed he has welcomed baby no. 5 with girlfriend, Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein.

She let the news slip while promoting her series ‘The Royals’. “I’m very lucky that 31 years into our friendship, he’s still my best friend in the world,” Hurley told E! Online.

“He’s a really great guy. I see him a lot; I speak to him a lot. You know, he’s now a father of five; he has five kids and he’s a great dad. Yeah, he will remain my best friend for life.”

Elaborating about the newborn during an appearance on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen’, the actress said, “He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He’s an enchanting dad-really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It’s improved him. He’s gone up the scale.”

The baby is the ‘Notting Hill’ star’s fifth child and third with his current girlfriend Anna Eberstein. Grant and Eberstein’s elder children are five and three.

He also has a six-year-old daughter and five-year-old son from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong. (ANI)
