#337469 Hugh Grant

I can not believe it! Wow. Zero to five in seven years.


#337461 Hugh Grant

Posted by dixiedoodah on 09 January 2018 - 10:38 AM


Hugh came up in the Golden Globes thread today which led me down a google rabbit hole. How do we not have this on here somewhere. Hugh, the old curmudgeon, suddenly has 4 kids. But the interesting part is they are by two different mothers and they stair step. Like he’s casually with two women and they just alternate giving birth. I think the Swedish woman is his main partner but the waitress/actress is still around. So unexpected to me that he would even have kids but this is even more surprising. There are more recent articles about them, this is just the closest one to hand.

Hugh Grant 'becomes a father for the fourth time' as his Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein gives birth to a baby girl
Hugh Grant has become a father for the fourth time after his Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein gave birth to a baby girl, MailOnline can reveal.

The 55-year-old actor has gone from having no children to being a father of four in just four years.

His fourth love child was born to Ms Eberstein, 37, on Wednesday, Swedish regional newspaper Sundsvall Tinding reported.



Delighted: Hugh Grant and the mother of his oldest son Anna Eberstein (pictured together in Paris in November) are said to have welcomed their second child together

Anna Eberstein from Sundsvall has had her second child with film star Hugh Grant,’ it said.

‘The newest member of the family saw the light of day for the first time last Wednesday.’

Ms Eberstein, who is mother to Mr Grant's second child, John, and the wider family are said to be overjoyed by the birth.

Her delighted mother Susanne, a judge and prominent left-wing politician, confirmed to Swedish newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda the baby, her second grandchild, had been born.

‘I can confirm that I have another grandchild,' she said.

‘It is wonderful that we now have grandchildren [more than one grandchild].’

A close friend of the family told MailOnline: ‘I heard from Anna’s parents that she had given birth last Wednesday. It was a little girl.

‘Everything seemed to have gone okay.’

Her brother Christian Eberstein told MailOnline: ‘We are a wonderful family and we all love each other very much.

‘As a family we are very loving towards everyone both those who have been in the family for a long time and those who newly have become part of this family.’



In October it emerged that Ms Eberstein, 37, was pregnant for a second time, although neither party have responded to questions about the paternity of the child.


It remains unclear whether the baby was born in the UK or in Sweden.

However the couple have bought a villa on the Sweden’s south coast to be close to Ms Eberstein’s family, according to Sundsvall Tinding.

The vendor of the property on Sweden’s south coast explained that the British actor was expecting his second child with his partner Ms Eberstein.

He added the family wanted a quiet retreat to get away from it all.

The vendor Magnus Ploman told Swedish newspaper Dina Pengar: ‘I do not think he [Mr Grant] will come here to show off and be seen, and build some huge bungalow with pools and stuff.

‘They are having their second child and it is a great site with lots of space where you can put up swings and other things for the children.’

And Mr Grant's former girlfriend Liz Hurley appeared to confirm the baby was Mr Grant's just last month on American chat show Watch What Happens: Live.

When asked if she was surprised that Hugh now had three children with one more on the way last month, she responded: 'Yeah, because he was over 50 when he had all of them, so yeah it is surprising. But he is a good daddy, very good.'

In November Mr Grant and a pregnant Ms Eberstein were pictured strolling through Paris' Jardin Des Tuilleries.


However, last year Mr Grant told Swedish newspaper Nöjesbladet they were no longer together, although he did say they were still close.

The actor said he saw his son John, three, born in September 2012, most days as the boy and his mother live within walking distance of his London home.


Mr Grant has two other children, a daughter, Tabitha, four, and Felix, two, with Chinese-born receptionist and actress Tinglan Hong, who was working at a Chinese restaurant in Wimbledon when they met, according to the Mirror.

Felix was born three months after Grant's other son John, meaning both the two women were pregnant at the same time.

Tabitha is almost exactly a year older than John.

At the time of Tabitha's birth, Mr Grant's spokesman said: 'He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive. He and the mother have discussed ­everything and are on friendly terms.'

When Ms Hong gave birth to Felix, Mr Grant wrote on Twitter: 'In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother.

'Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.'

Mr Grant’s personal assistant Sara Woodhatch, publicist Carrie Gordon and solicitor Mark Thomson all declined to offer any comment when contacted today by MailOnline.

Why Hollywood Women Are Reportedly Wearing All Black to the Golden Globes
https://www.vanityfa...l-black-protest

To me, their reason for dressing in black was rather hypocritical when that film about Tonya Harding got nominations.
 
God bless you always!!!
 
Holly

Holly, I don’t understand your comment. The all black movement was “to make a statement against the epidemic of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and beyond.” I don’t see how the Tanya Harding movie makes that hypocritical. But then again I haven’t seen the movie so maybe I’m missing something. I do think that people who willingly worked with someone like Woody Allen or Danny Masterson after those allegations have been made public could be called a hypocrite,

Did everyone already forget Ryan Seacrest had sexual harassment accusations against him, too???


Yeah, I’m thinking the hypocrisy and nervous sweats are both strong on the red carpet tonight.

#337354 Kirsten Dunst

Posted by dixiedoodah on 13 December 2017 - 08:54 AM

I find it nearly impossible to believe she doesnt have a thread, because I feel like she is almost one of the founding gossip subjects of this whole site. Maybe she has no thread because she was the subject of so many BIs back then that we just talked about her there (or my search missed it).

In any event, Kiki finally grows up, i guess.

Kirsten Dunst and Fiancé Jesse Plemons Are Expecting Their First Child

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are doing everything they can to make sure 2018 is their best year yet. Not only are they planning on walking down the aisle in April, but, according to an Us Weekly source, they're also expecting their first child together sometime next year.
The Beguiled star has previously spoken about her desire to have children. In the July 2017 issue of Marie Claire UK, just a few months into her engagement, Dunst said she's ready to settle down and start a family with Plemons. "It's time to have babies and chill," she said, before adding that spending time with her baby goddaughter is what's spurred her to start putting down roots. "I wasn't one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much. That love is just, like, you can't experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night, and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, 'Where's Kiki?' I just love that love. That's what I want."
Dunst, 35, and Plemons, 29, started dating in 2016, after starring as husband and wife on the second season of Fargo. In January of this year, Dunst was spotted wearing a big, sparkly ring on that finger, and in the months since, the actors have opened up about their low-key wedding plans, which include a small ceremony next spring in Austin, Texas, and a dress designed by Laura and Kate Mulleavy, Rodarte designers and directors of Dunst's latest film Woodshock. "I never thought I was that person who'd have a Pinterest board. I like doing all of the pinning things," Dunst said on a September episode of Live with Kelly & Ryan. "It's really fun, and because we create it together from the beginning, it's a really nice thing to do together. It's going to be so personal and fun. We're having a really good time."

10:25 and Fox News just called it for Jones. I’m shocked. Pleased, but shocked.

I dont. I think people are voting against the pro choice candidate and in their eyes what he did is less offensive than baby murder. Whatever. I also believe people who will vote for Moore, at least a large enough portion of them, will be embarrassed to admit it to pollsters. I would be surprised if he doesnt win by a good bit. I do expect there to be a reasonably large write in vote, but still not enough.

I feel like we should start a Please No list. People we hope never make the perv list. Im really hoping that Tom Hanks and Mr. Rogers (necessary after Cosby) stay clean. Ill add Jimmy Carter and Dan Rather too.

The Keillor thing is weird. Im unsure if he was fired for inappropriate sexual behavior or inappropriate behavior of other kinds (supporting a political candidate, I dont know...) the release and wording of info that Ive seen thus far is very confusing. Ive been glued to the tv all day.

Back to Matt, I watched Natalie on Access Hollywood. She looked like crap. Shes having a rough day, clearly. I found What she said and what she didnt say to be equally interesting. ETA This is the second time this week that quotation marks have been stripped from my posts. Even after I go in and edit it. Weird glitch, but just know the paragraph below is the quote from her this morning on Access Hollywood.

I woke up to the news like everyone this morning just in shock. The Today show, of course, has been my family for 16 years now and it is difficult, Morales said on Access Hollywood Live. I think everyone is saying how difficult it is to process the news.
She continued, I have personally dealt with rumors in the past for years that were hurtful to me, my family they diminished my hard work. Ive addressed those rumors head-on in the past. That is not the story today. The story today is the courage of a colleague who did come forward, and when and if she wants to tell her story publicly, Im sure she will. But it did take a lot of courage for her to come forward. It was no doubt a very painful decision.

Savannah Guthrie just went live on the today show with a breaking news that Matt Lauer was fired effective immediately. She is basically crying on the air and they just found out about an hour or so before the show started. Hoda is on with her.

Based on the gossip we have had here, I told my husband I thought he would go down soon.

So, he’s five points away from ever having to abdicate, but just think, there are people (and a lot of them) who were alive when Wallis Simpson forced a regime change. Now Prince Harry is marrying a commoner, American, divorced, biracial, Catholic woman. Granted, Edward was all kinds of a hot mess, but still, progressive isn’t really a term I think of when I think of the British monarchy as an institution. Its amazing to see this as a reflection of how much society has changed in one lifetime. It’s times like this that I wish Elizabeth would one day smuggle tapes out to Andrew Morton so we could know her real thoughts. Good for Harry for finally finding someone who makes him happy.

For just a little while, I’m going to pretend I don’t read celebrity gossip so I don’t have that nagging snarky feeling about her that I have about Kate. I’m just going to let myself be caught up in the romance and be totally happy for them.
