Hugh Grant has second child

Hugh Grant has become a father for the second time to a son he has named Felix Chang.

Tinglan Hong, the mother of the 'Notting Hill' star’s 16-month-old daughter Tabitha, gave birth on December 29 and registered the new arrival on Valentine’s Day.

The boy’s full name as Felix Chang Hong Grant. Felix is the Latin word for lucky and Chang in Chinese means long-lasting.

Grant posted a message on his Twitter page saying: ‘In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.’

Grant tweeted later: ‘And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.’

The 52-year-old star of 'Love Actually' and 'About A Boy' is on the certificate as the child’s father under his full name Hugh John Mungo Grant with his occupation listed as "actor".

Felix’s arrival comes almost 17 months after Miss Hong gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter Tabitha Xaio Xi Hong Grant, at London’s Portland Hospital.

In an interview with American chat show host Ellen DeGeneres last April, Grant admitted that while coming as something of a shock, fatherhood had had a very positive ‘life-changing’ effect on him.

‘Everyone was right all these years, saying: “Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life.” Now that I have a child, it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some."
