Hugh Grant and his girlfriend Anna Eberstein have welcomed their third child, making Hugh a dad of five!

Yes, it's official - posh-boy actor Hugh Grant, 57, has joined Closer faves Katie Price and Kerry Katona as the newest member of the Five Kids Club (which is sadly a fictional club we just made up, but don't you worry, we're gonna try and make it a real thing!)

Strangely, it was actually Hugh's ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley who broke the happy news...

Liz let the cat out the bag during an appearance on US TV show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

When asked how Hugh was doing as a dad-of-four, Liz blabbed: "He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all. He's an enchanting dad. Really, really sweet."

And she didn't stop there.

Talking about how Hugh's changed since the pair dated (they were together from 1987 - 2000 and split shortly after Hugh was arrested after being caught in a compromising position with a prostitute in LA), the mum-of-one said: "Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person, It's improved him. He's gone up the scale."

Hugh and Anna - who was born in Sweden and works as a TV producer - have been dating on and off for around seven years, and already have two children together.

The couple are incredibly private (so we're not sure they'll be too pleased at Liz Hurley for sharing their happy news!), and although we know their five-year-old son is called John, their two-year-old daughter's name isn't public knowledge.

As well as his three children with Anna, Hugh also has two older children with Chinese-born actress/ receptionist Tinglan Hong.

Grants first child, Tabitha, was born in 2011. And despite his publicist referring to their relationship as a "fleeting affair", Hugh went on to have a second child with Hong - a boy named Felix - in 2013.
