British bachelor and party animal, Hugh Grant at the end became a daddy at age of 51. Tinglan Hong gave birth to a beautiful baby named Jessica on September, at this moment Ms. Hong age 32 is no longer in a relationship with him.
Hugh Grant made British comedy films popular all over the world. All of us remember him when in love with Carrie (Andie McDowell) in Four Weddings and a Funeral, or Nine Months, when he panics when knowing he would become a father..ehem…any resemblance to the real life is pure coincidence…Or the hottie model who became an actress just by being Hugh Grant’s girlfriend? Elizabeth Hurley whom he had a long relationship of 13 years and split when he got busted with a prostitute… But they still are close friends; Hugh is even Damien’s (Hurley’s son) godfather.
32 year-old Chinese actress Tinglan Hong met Grant last year, she was spotted with Hugh for the first time on the first months of 2011, but Tinglan has been Grant’s girlfriend since January. A source said:
Hugh and Tinglan have grown increasingly close in recent months. They see each other most days and she’s a big part of his life. But watch out, he’s still a free spirit. Tinglan’s a lovely girl, smart and very attractive. She and Hugh love spending time together. But as ever he’s a very difficult man to nail down. And although they’re increasingly close, Ting’s aware that he still goes out with other girls. Yes, he sees Ting all the time, but it’s normally on his terms – at his house or bars and restaurants nearby. Hugh has always been a bit of a commitment-phone. He just loves doing his own thing.
It was rumored that Tinglan dumped her boyfriend 55-year-old Robert Hodge for Hugh, Hodge became suspicious Tinglan was seeing somebody else after she kept making up excuses to see him.
“I confronted her. She said that she didn’t think the relationship was going very well,” Hodge tells RumorFix. Three months later he found out that the 31-year-old he called “Ting Ting” was dating Hugh. “I was very upset,” he told us. “But what can you do? He’s got more money than me and he’s slightly more famous,” he joked.
Two years later — this past summer — Hodge and Tinglan went to dinner as friends and she denied being pregnant with Hugh’s baby. Then they both were shocked at the arrival of an unexpected guest. “[Hugh] walked into the restaurant … She was shocked. I was shocked … She didn’t introduce me as an ex and she didn’t call him her boyfriend.”
She eventually confessed about Hugh and the baby growing inside her belly to Hodge, but media was unaware there was a bun in the oven until couple of months later, around April, Ms. Hong was seen with a bigger belly that didn’t look like the one you get when you pig out! But when they split up, nobody knew what would happen next.
Tabitha was born on September 26th at the Portland Hospital in London, Tinglan who gave birth to a healthy little girl via c-section registered at the hospital under the name of Sophie Hong.
Hugh’s rep said:
I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of 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. He’s going to be a great dad! He’s beaming about his daughter. He’s not with the mum anymore but he’s absolutely thrilled.
Tinglan used to live in Merton, South London, but after she found out she was expecting a baby she moved into Fulham, south-west London where her baby’s daddy lives.
Some said Tinglan and Hugh were no longer dating, however when he was invited to the Ellen Show he said he was with Tinglan, actually he said with Tin-Tin.
On February 16, 2012 Grant announced on Twitter that his daughter Tabitha was now a big sister, Tinglan gave birth to the couple’s second child a boy, Felix Chang was born at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London on December 29th, 2012. His name Felix Chang Hong Grant. Felix is the Latin word for lucky and Chang in Chinese means long-lasting.
