Hugh Grant Teaches Us Why Sugar Daddies Shouldn’t Sleep Around Unless They Can Afford It

Sugar Daddy Hugh GrantHugh Grant may be a pro at play­ing a per­fect gen­tle­man in all those roman­tic come­dies, but in real life, the actor is far from per­fect. It has just been revealed that Grant, 53, is now the father of three ille­git­i­mate kids with two dif­fer­ent women who are both about 20 years younger than him. And it gets better—both of the women were preg­nant at the same time.

A Swedish tele­vi­sion pro­ducer named Anna Elis­a­bet Eber­stein, believed to be in her 30s, secretly gave birth to a baby boy in Sep­tem­ber 2013 and accord­ing to his birth cer­tifi­cate, Grant is the father. How­ever, Grant’s young ex-girlfriend, 33-year-old Tinglan Hong, gave birth to their sec­ond child three months later, mean­ing the two women’s preg­nan­cies over­lapped for about five months. Grant and Hong also have a daugh­ter together; she was born in Sep­tem­ber 2011. That’s three kids in the span of 15 months.

There’s no word on whether or not Hong knew that Grant was hav­ing an affair with Eber­stein at the time, as none of them have com­mented on the scan­dal yet.

Both women and their kids report­edly live within close walk­ing dis­tance of Grant’s home in West Lon­don. Hong’s house, esti­mated to be worth over $2.5 mil­lion, was pur­chased by the actor. Eberstein’s house is worth twice that much, and although it’s unknown who paid for it because it was pur­chased with cash, it’s believed to be much, much more than her earn­ings as a TV pro­ducer could afford.

Plus, an insider hinted that Grant, in true celebrity sugar daddy style, is step­ping up and tak­ing care of Eber­stein. “It’s an unusual arrange­ment. Anna is being sup­ported by Hugh all the way,” said the source. “She lives in a very com­fort­able prop­erty in West Lon­don and knows Hugh is there for her.” So, while he may not be a loyal celebrity sugar daddy, he sounds like a pretty respon­si­ble one.

What do you think: Would you want Hugh Grant as your celebrity sugar daddy?
