Sad news for Colin Firth. His Bridget Jones co-star Hugh Grant might be too busy to be an effective scandal coach because he’s probably elbow deep in infant poop right about now. Wait, who are we kidding? Hugh’s probably never changed an infant’s diaper in his life (though I wouldn’t put a little adult diaper play past him). Whatever his job at the baby factory is (he might have a “batter chef” only clause, who knows), Hugh’s fifth child has been born and we have Elizabeth Hurley’s big mouth to thank for breaking the news, according to UsWeekly.
Elizabeth was on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen to promote the new season of The Royals and she let it slip that Hugh’s fifth child in almost as many years, was born last week. Elizabeth said:
“He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He’s an enchanting dad.”
I really hope Hugh’s kids don’t end up having to do a family tree project in school because there isn’t enough construction paper, crayons or glue in the world to turn that knotty pine into an refrigerator quality “A+” assignment.
UsWeekly reminds us:
Grant and the Swedish television producer welcomed their first child, John, in September 2012. Their 2-year-old daughter, whose name has not been made public, made her debut in December 2015. The rom-com king also shares two kids — Tabitha, and Felix —with receptionist Tinglan Hong. In a cinematic twist, Hong and Eberstein were pregnant with their sons at the same time.
Here’s Elizabeth spilling the beans about Hugh’s progeny.
I’m all for Elizabeth getting a permanent gig giving all of Hugh’s future birth announcements with a small side of snark.
