Hugh Grant is (shocker!) a new dad. Says his rep:
“I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of a baby girl. He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive. He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms.”
How’s that for honesty?
Everyone loves Hugh Grant, either for starring in their favorite romantic comedy or for being a spectacular phone-hacking whistleblower. (There were rumors that Tom’s phone had been compromised, and you’ll have to trust me when I say — no one wants to see those self-pics.)
Really, he’s one of the few people who can put out a press release about unplanned pregnancy following a fleeting affair and have it come across as a charming story of fatherhood and responsibility. It’s all very English.
