On Saturday, the British actor and film producer Hugh Grant, and campaigner for tighter press regulation, has announced that he had become a father for the second time after Tinglan Hong gave birth to a baby boy. “In answer to some journalists” the British actor Grant told he was “thrilled” to become a father again, reportedly with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong, but urged the press to leave his family in peace. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.
However, the 52-year-old star of “Notting Hill” was one of the most high-profile victims of phone-hacking by the former British tabloid the News of the World, and has since become a campaigner for a more responsible press.
On Saturday evening Grant said to the some journalists, that I am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum,” Grant said in a Twitter message.
But, his statement was in response to a story in Britain’s Mail on Sunday reporting that the child, Felix Chang, was born in a west London hospital on December 29. And the tabloid cited the birth certificate, issued on February 14.
The British Hugh Grant leaves the message on Twitter “Thanks for v kind messages. But, now I have confirmed (press somehow got birth certificate & were calling), hoping my family will be left in peace.”
