Hugh Grant announces birth of second child

  • Hugh Grant announced on Saturday the birth of his second child after Tinglan Hong gave birth to a baby boy.

    "In answer to some journos (journalists)," the British actor posted on the social media website Twitter, "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. I am the Daddy," he added in a second tweet.

    Grant, 52, did not reveal the child's name on Twitter.

    The actor and Hong had their first child in 2011, when his spokeswoman said in a statement that the baby girl was the result of a "fleeting affair".

    Hong later won a court injunction in Britain "prohibiting harassment" of her and the child.

    On his Twitter message, Grant mentioned that the press had obtained his son’s birth certificate. "Now I've confirmed ... hoping my family will be left in peace," he wrote.
