Hugh Grant Reveals Daughter's Chinese Name

Hugh Grant Reveals Daughter's Chinese Name

Hugh Grant makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Friday (April 27).

The 51-year-old actor chatted about fatherhood and his daughter, Tabitha.

“It’s very nice. I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise but, it’s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese – because her mother is Chinese – means ‘happy surprise,’” Hugh told Ellen.

Asked what the name is, Hugh revealed, “Jingxi. It’s one of the baby’s names.”

“It’s surprising that everyone was right all these years. Saying ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children. It changes your life.’ And, you’re thinking, oh shut-up. And now that I have [a child] it is life changing,” he added. “I recommend it. Get some.”

    OMG, the comments here are shocking. But more about Hugh: he’s using the unwanted baby now for publicity. This man is scum. He’ll come around when he’s 80 and very very alone.

    Nice Ellen, make fun of the baby’s name for being Chinese. I completely cringed when she kept making fun of the name.

    Shame on you!
