Gorgeouses, I'm soo sick today. Just came off of two days of fever. So please bear with me because I've been speaking a lo-ho-hot of gibberish today. 

So, remember around 5 months ago when 51-year-old Hugh Grant suddenly had a baby girl with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong?

Well, he's been really quiet about it UNTIL NOW!

In a recent interview with The Guardian to promote his latest flick, The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!, Hugh shares the baby's name, how  he "likes her very much," and a little about how he plans to raise her.

And the name is....



"Lots of people warned me that the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually," Hugh told the mag. "I thought, well, I'll bluff through — but very little bluffing has been required."

Though he and Tinglan hadn't planned on having baby Tabitha, Hugh says, "I like my daughter very much. Fantastic."

Has she changed his life? "I'm not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I'm absolutely thrilled to have had her — I really am. And I feel a better person."

Will he be a "Tiger Dad" disciplinarian? "No, I have the Tiger Mom. I'll be Lamb Daddy. But also my other worry is about — and as I say, there are few things in life I believe in 100% — but another one is not giving your children money. I see nothing but f***-ups among my trust-fund friends. It's like 99% f***-ups. So I would not want to do that to my children, no."

Aww, Lamb Daddy.... Love!

Off to pick up my kids from school, take them to swimming, feed them dinner and then, maybe then, catch some much-needed zzzzzzzzs.
