Hugh Grant Fathers Third Love Child, Swedish TV Producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein Welcomed Son in September 2012
Good thing Hugh Grant knows About a Boy! The famed British bachelor, 53, is now the father of three children after Swedish TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein secretly gave birth to a baby boy in September 2012. A copy of a birth certificate obtained by Us Weekly confirms that the child was born at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital in London on Sept. 3; though the baby's first name is not listed, his surname is "Grant," and the actor's full name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, is listed as the father on the document. Grant's rep did not return Us Weekly's requests for comment. (The Sun was the first to report this news.)
Coincidentally, Eberstein was pregnant at the same time as Tinglan Hong, who gave birth to her second child from Grant, a son named Felix, in December 2012. There's no word yet on the status of Grant's current relationship with either Eberstein or Hong.
Hong first welcomed daughter Tabitha Xaoi Xi Hong Grant in September 2011, and though the affair was described as "fleeting," the couple reunited and Hong gave birth to Felix a little more than a year later.
"I can't pretend like it wasn't a surprise, but it's a very nice surprise," Grant said of his first child in April 2012 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "In fact, the baby's name in Chinese means 'happy surprise.' It is quite life changing, I recommend it."
He also told DeGeneres he "quite often" visits his young daughter, who is currently living in a flat in London with her mother.
Grant famously dated model and actress Elizabeth Hurley for 13 years before moving on to writer Jemima Khan in 2004. The couple broke up three years later.
He is next set to appear in The Reluctant Professor, a romantic comedy about an Oscar-winning writer in a slump, also starring Marisa Tomei and Allison Janney.
