UPDATE: Hugh Grant Welcomes Second Child: Felix Chang Hong Grant

(UPDATE: Mail On Sunday reports that Hugh Grant and Tinglan Hong’s son is named Felix Chang Hong Grant. He was born on December 29 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London. Felix is the Latin word for lucky and Chang in Chinese means long-lasting.

The paper adds that Grant only told his closest friends – including Elizabeth Hurley – in the last week but swore them to secrecy. The actor decided to make the news public on Saturday after being contacted by The Mail on Sunday with a congratulatory message.)

Congratulations to Hugh Grant who has welcomed a baby boy! The actor announced the news on his Twitter page on Saturday (February 16).

He wrote: “In answer to some [journalists], I am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.”

“And to be crystal clear,” he added, “I am the daddy.”

His and Tinglan Hong welcomed their daughter Tabitha in September 2011. At the time his rep said their relationship was a “fleeting affair.”

However reports say the two have become more serious since the birth of their little girl. Hong is 19 years younger than Grant, 52.

Last April he told Ellen DeGeneres, “Everyone was right all these years, saying, ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life.’ And you’re thinking, ‘Oh, shut up. Now that I have [a child], it is life changing. I recommend it. Get some!”

        Men like Hugh are just too lazy to marry/have a relationship so this set up suits him perfectly. He wasn’t even at the birth of his 1st child. He’s weak with a big ego. He’s just another casual father with money and we all know that money does not buy a child happiness/stability. It’s not being negative it’s called difference of opinion.

    How exciting! So happy for them! (I actually completely forgot that he had a daughter. She’s kept very well out of the spotlight)

    @get real: WOW. Have you ever heard of the phrase “It takes two to tango”? If Hugh is such a “casual” and “lazy” father for bringing the kids into the world then where does the mother’s responsibility lay?? We as women ultimately control our bodies and whether or not we bear children so, by your account, she must naturally be a “lazy” and “casual” parent who is “weak with a big ego” too right?

    God, I really can’t stand the double standards that some women promote and live by concerning these types of situations.

      @ Amy – Hugh has money so who wouldn’t say no to having his babies. Baby momma is set up for life she never has to work but as always she’ll be doing the majority of the child rearing while he’ll come and go as she pleases.

        If *HE* is coming and going as he pleases, wouldn’t that imply that *SHE* can come and go as she pleases, too?

    I’m amazed at how many people on this page personally know Hugh and his girlfriend as well as all of the ins and outs of their personal relationship. Wow!
