Hugh Grant is in the news again—apparently, the British actor has another child.

This third child is already 16 months, born in 2012. The mom is Swedish TV host Anna Elisabet Eberstein, according to the UK's Sun newspaper. Hugh and Anna are said to have been dating for over two years.

The news is making headlines because Hugh's name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, was on the baby's birth certificate when they registered the birth again last month. The initial birth certificate didn't include the father's name.

Interestingly, this child—a boy— was born just three months prior to Hugh's son, Felix Chang, with ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong. Hugh and Tinglan also have a 2.5-year-old daughter, Tabitha Xaio Xi, born September 2011.


So, basically, as The Daily Mail aptly put it, "The 53-year-old actor has gone from being childless to a father of three in the space of just 15 months." WOW.

We don't know if Anna and Tinglan were aware of each other's pregnancies. But, as a source for the Sun points out, "They were pregnant with Hugh's children at the same time. It's an unusual arrangement."

And we don't yet know the baby's name, but we do know he has the last name "Grant."
