Hugh Grant Welcomes Second Child, Adores His Kids To 'An Uncool Degree'

Hugh Grant is now the father of two!

The actor, 52, shared the happy news on Twitter.

“In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother,” Hugh Tweeted on Saturday, referencing his daughter, Tabitha (with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong, 33). “Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.”

Adding, “And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.”

The actor later thanked followers for their support and said he hoped his announcement would quiet media requests.

“Thanks for v kind messages,” he Tweeted. “Now I’ve confirmed (press somehow got birth certificate & were calling), hoping my family will be left in peace.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, though the 2011 birth of Tabitha came as a surprise for the actor, he’s feeling like a different man now that he’s come to grips with becoming a father.

“It’s surprising that everyone was right all these years,” Hugh told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” last year. “[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.”
