LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- 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.”
