Hugh Grant revealed to have 1-year-old son

Hugh Grant is a new father, but not that new: It was recently discovered that the actor had a son in 2012 with Swedish TV announcer Anna Elisabet Eberstein, according to People.

We’re just now finding out because the space for “father” was reportedly left blank on the child’s original birth certificate, but Grant’s name was added to it when it was re-registered this past December. Eberstein and Grant’s son was born just three months before Grant’s child, Felix Chang, with former girlfriend Tinglan Hong was born. Grant and Hong also had another child together in 2011, a daughter named Tabitha Xaio Xi. The name of his and Eberstein’s son has not yet been released.

Hugh Grant receives settlement for 'News of the World' phone hacking

After over a year of testimonies, actor Hugh Grant has been awarded damages for settling his claim against the News of the World regarding charges of phone hacking, The Guardian reported Friday. The Cloud Atlas star has been one of the highest profile critics of Rupert Murdoch’s organization since he received information that his personal phone had been hacked.

When reached by EW, Grant’s solicitor Mark Thomson issued the following statement, but would not comment on the settlement amount:

Hugh Grant has today settled his claims for damages and other legal remedies arising out of the unlawful activities of News of the World journalists and others over a number of years. News Group Newspapers have agreed to pay him a substantial sum by way of damages. He has instructed us to donate all of his damages plus an additional payment from him to the Hacked Off Campaign for a free and accountable media. This will be done as soon as payment is received. A statement in open court will be made shortly in the new year.
