Remember when Hugh Grant had a baby with a woman that he’d had a brief affair with, but was seemingly no longer dating? Well, he’s gone and done it again. Hugh Grant and Tinglan Hong have now had a second baby together, providing a brother – they’ve named him Felix Chang Hong Grant – to Tabitha Xaio Hong Grant, who was born 17 months ago.
Felix was born on December 29, 2013 at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, MSN’s Celebrity Fix reports. Hugh announced the news via Twitter, seemingly wishing to put the minds of prying journalists at rest, despite having kept the news under wraps until now. “In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum,” he tweeted. He also added “And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.”
The situation surrounding the arrival of Hugh’s first child, Tabitha was a murky one, with Hugh derided when his publicist described his relationship with Tinglan as “fleeting.” He was simply describing the relationship as he saw it, he insists. “I've been given a hard time for using those words,” he said, “which is ironic seeing as it's actually the truth, but that doesn’t seem to be very popular.” He went on to explain “I was protecting her reputation – I didn't want her to appear to be a jilted girlfriend," he revealed. “I was protecting mine — I didn’t want it to seem that I was a monster who ran away from his girlfriend."
