Although his wife isn't a fan of rom-com, she proudly supports his career, and according to the comedian, Eberstein preferred watching his least romantic works like "The Undoing." Still, she loved Ismael Cruz Cordova's character more than his.

GRANT'S RELATIONSHIPS

Grant loves to keep his life away from the media. However, his relationship with Eberstein reportedly began in 2012 after they had their first child, John. This marked the actor's second child as he shares his first child and daughter with Tinglan Hong.

By 2014, the couple had broken up, and Grant was back with Hong, who gave birth to their son, Felix, that same year. His romance with Eberstein was rekindled in 2015, and they welcomed their daughter in December.
