Meeting Hugh Grant: Three Kids and a Marriage
Anna Eberstein came into the spotlight when in September 2012, she gave birth to son John Mungo Grant, English actor Hugh Grant’s second child and her first.
Interestingly, Hugh had earlier been in a relationship with a Chinese woman named Tinglan Hong who, according to some media reports, was a receptionist at a London-based Chinese restaurant. Earlier, on September 26, 2011, Hugh and Tinglan had had a daughter, Tabitha, whose Chinese name is Xiao Xi (meaning “happy surprise”).
Although Tinglan and Grant broke up soon, and Anna came into the picture and gave birth to Mungo, Hugh reunited with Tinglan briefly later. Following this, Tinglan gave birth to Grant’s third child, a son named Felix “Chang Hong” Grant, on December 29, 2012. However, Tinglan and Hugh split again, and Hugh got back together with Anna.
In December 2015, Anna and Hugh had their second child, a daughter. In March 2018, Anna gave birth to their third child, and Grant’s fifth. The names of these two children have not been revealed to the media.
Hugh had earlier dated actor Elizabeth Hurley for 13 years, before splitting with her in 2000.
Anna and Hugh eventually got married in a simple civil ceremony on May 25, 2018. The low-key event was held at a Chelsea register office near their West London home worth £10million. Hugh, then 57, thus got married for the first time, as he had been commitment phobic throughout most of his life.
Hugh was dressed in a navy lounge suit and tie and had chosen a gold ring with three red gemstones as the wedding ring. Anna wore a mini skirt and a blouse, as opposed to a traditional wedding gown. She also sported a gold band on her finger.
