Hugh Grant admits having a child has been life changing
The `Bridget Jones` star "recommends" people to expand their families, but jokes he was "surprised" when his ex-girlfriend Tinglan Hong gave birth to Tabitha, who is now six months old.
Speaking on the `Ellen DeGeneres Show`, he said: "Everyone was right all these years, saying, `Hugh, why don`t you have some children? It changes your life.`
"Now that I have a child, it is lifechanging. I recommend it. Get some! 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 the mother is Chinese, means Happy Surprise`."
Speaking about his daughter previously, Hugh said he liked her "very much" 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."
