Over the weekend, “Notting Hill” actor Hugh Grant confirmed that yes, he has become a father for a second time. According to the birth certificate, a baby boy was born to Hugh John Mungo Grant, with his occupation listed as “actor”, and Tinglan Hong, who listed her occupation as “housewife”.
It also revealed the baby boy’s full name as Felix Chang Hong Grant. Felix is the Latin word for lucky and Chang in Chinese means long-lasting. He was actually born at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London on 29th December 2012 and his arrival was registered on Valentine’s Day.
Hugh Grant only told his closest friends of Felix Chang’s arrival last week but swore them to secrecy. Amongst the people the 52-year-old actor told is none other than his ex-flame, Elizabeth Hurley.
Not entirely surprising since their first child, Tabitha Xaio Xi Hong Grant’s arrival was kept secret for two whole months until Hugh Grant’s spokeman released a statement confirming the birth. However, this time around, with the beauty of social media, Hugh Grant decided to make the new public himself. He tweeted the following:
Tinglan Hong, who was born in Zhejiang province in eastern China and moved to Britain in 2003, is understood to have met Hugh Grant in a Chelsea wine bar 2008. The pair struck up an unlikely friendship before embarking on a relationship in January 2011.
Congratulations, you two! We’re waiting to see the happy family pictures soon.
