London - Hugh Grant says having a second child is “great”.

The 52-year-old actor - who already has 18-month-old daughter Tabitha with Tinglan Hong - recently welcomed a son with the 33-year-old Chinese actress and he is thrilled with the latest addition to their family.

Speaking at the gala screening of Cloud Atlas at the Curzon Mayfair Cinema in London on Monday, Hugh told Bang Showbiz: “It feels great, thank you.”

Hugh only confirmed the news on his Twitter page on Saturday, when he said: “Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.”

It is not known if the actor is still in a relationship with Tinglan. After confirming the birth of their daughter in September 2011, Hugh described their relationship as a “fleeting affair”.

However, he later praised Tinglan, saying: “She is a good person, a nice person; funny, clever, great mother.”

The Love Actually star, who once dated Gossip Girl star Elizabeth Hurley and socialite Jemima Khan, previously admitted that becoming a father has made him feel like a better person.

He said: “(People) said never let anyone know, but the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually. I thought, well, I'll bluff through - but very little bluffing has been required.

“I like my daughter very much. Fantastic. Has she changed my life? I'm not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I'm absolutely thrilled to have had her, I really am.

“And I feel a better person. There probably is some truth that one of our main functions on the planet is to reproduce, because it feels like more of an achievement than it should do.” - Bang Showbiz
