Hugh Grant is apparently going to take on the unthinkable. marriage. People says 57-year-old Hugh got engaged to his longtime girlfriend and mother of three of his kids, Anna Eberstein, which is kind of hard to comprehend since I’m pretty sure hehas tried pick-up lines on every woman in Britain…including THE QUEEN. Hugh and Anna did the subtle, classy British thing of just posting a notice in the newspaper over the weekend of their intent to marry. Granted, Hugh could have probably dropped his trousers and screamed “I’M GETTING MARRIED” last weekend in London, and nobody would have noticed.
Hugh and Anna have three kids: a two-year-old daughter, a five-year-old son, and a third kiddo who was born earlier this year that they aren’t talking about too much (but that his ex and BFF Elizabeth Hurley has no problem blabbing about). Hugh also has two kids with his ex, Tinglan Hong. Fatherhood seems to have changed Hugh for the better, at that’s what Liz told Andy Cohen in March:
“He was over 50 when he spawned them all. No, he’s an enchanting dad. Really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It’s improved him. He’s gone up the scale.”
Whether that means he’ll be changed enough to alter his outlook on monogamy remains to be seen. Back in 2016, Hugh had a mouthful to say about the subject of long-term relationships to Howard Stern:
“If you ask me the question, ‘Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful relationships?’ No, no. Whoever said they were?”
That might be pissy news for Anna, but it’s great news for British nursing homes in 2058 when a newly single 97-year-old Hugh moves in with a fistful of Cialis ready to take life by the storm!
