English actor and film producer Hugh Grant has revealed that being a father has been life changing for him and it is in a good way. The actor who did appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show today did mention his friends told him that having a child would change him, but he didn’t believe them until now. The star says,
“[People were] saying, ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life…And you’re thinking, ‘Oh, shut up!’ And now that I have [a child], it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some.”
But Grant had also admitted that he didn’t expect to be a father, it did come as a surprise to him.
”I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise, but it’s a very nice surprise…In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese (Jingxi) – because the mother is Chinese – means ‘Happy Surprise’.” Aww.
A few weeks ago we reported that Hugh feels as though he’s had enough of acting, but the star is still hoping for a third Bridget Jones film.
