Bridget Jones actor Hugh Grant has become a father.
Us Weekly reported on Tuesday that a baby girl was born to the 51-year-old actor earlier this month. A spokeswoman for the Notting Hill star confirmed the news soon after.
"I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of a baby girl," she said.
"He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive.
The identity of the mother remains unknown.
Earlier this year, Grant was linked with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong.
A Us Weekly source said: "He's going to be a great dad. He's beaming about his daughter. He's not with the mum anymore but he's absolutely thrilled."
