It was reported that he first shared the news with close friends, including Elizabeth Hurley, his ex-girlfriend, who was named Tabitha's Godmother. His full name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, is on Felix's birth certificate, and his occupation is listed as "actor."
Tinglan was 32 at the time and had her occupation listed as "housewife;" she resided in a one-million pound home Hugh purchased in Fulham, West London. Born in Zhejiang in eastern China, Tinglan moved to the UK in 2003 and reportedly met Hugh at a wine bar in 2008.
He Has Sisters and Brothers
Despite sharing two children with Tinglan, Hugh also had children with Anna Elisabet Eberstein. Hugh's first child with Tinglan, Tabitha, was born during what his publicist called a "fleeting affair." He soon set the record straight about the poor choice of words and was not short of sweet words for the mother of his children.

"I like my daughter very much," he said in 2012, calling her "fantastic." Tabitha Xiao Xing Hong Grant was only seventeen months older than Felix and was born at London's Portland Hospital.
A year later, Anna delivered his second child, John, in September 2012. They chose to keep the news under wraps until John's arrival was discovered in January 2014.
While Anna was pregnant with his second child, their first together, Tinglan was also expecting his third child, their second together, Felix. He was born in December 2012.
Hugh welcomed his fourth child, his second with Anna, in March 2015 and his fifth child, also with Anna. They chose to keep any details of their children, including their names, private.
