It sounds like a scenario in one of his adorably bumbling romantic comedies, but this moment was unscripted!
During a visit to The Castle Inn pub in Dover, Hugh Grant posed for a photo with a woman in the midst of breastfeeding her infant baby boy. The Daily Mail reports that the British star and new dad, 52, chatted up pub own Paul McMulland and his girlfriend Natalie -- who recently welcomed their son, Sebastian.
"Hugh came straight over to me on the sofa and said, 'Oh hello, how are you?'" Natalie told the Daily Mail. "I was blushing furiously and when he held out his hand he suddenly realized I was breast feeding," she revealed. "But because it was Hugh I felt I had to take it, but as I moved my arm the baby slipped down and he said, 'Oh I am so sorry,' and moved back and I only stroked his hand instead of shaking it."
Red-faced, Grant "turned his back," Natalie continued. "He wasn't comfortable with breast feeding."
Still, both Natalie and Paul (a former News of the World journalist involved in that paper's notorious phone tapping scandal) told the Daily Mail that Grant was animated talking about his own baby: Tabitha, his 12-month-old daughter with former fling Tinglang Hong.
"I didn't expect him to be quite so candid about his pride at being a hands on dad," Paul said.
