Hugh Grant: Having A Child ‘Is Life Changing’

Hugh Grant is feeling like a different man now that he’s gotten to grips with becoming a father for the first time, last year.

“It’s surprising that everyone was right all these years,” Hugh told Ellen DeGeneres in a taping for Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “[People were] saying, ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life.’ And, you’re thinking, ‘Oh, shut-up!’ And now that I have [a child], it is life changing. I recommend it. Get some.”

Hugh had a daughter with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong.

Their daughter is named Tabitha in English, but the translation of her Chinese name was very fitting, Hugh suggested.

“It’s very nice. I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise but, it’s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese — because the mother is Chinese — means ‘Happy Surprise,’” he told Ellen.

“What’s the baby’s name?” Ellen asked, wondering about his daughter’s Chinese name.

“Jingxi,” he said. “It’s one of the baby’s names.”
