Hugh Grant and Anna Eberstein tied the knot last month but the actor believes it should have happened a long time ago. It was a big move on Hugh's part and he does not mind joking about it. While appearing on the Today's show, the actor laughed about the idea of marrying when he is 57. You don’t think I’m too young?” he joked during the interview. However, he was quick to admit that he loves the idea of being married.

“No, it’s really nice. I can’t pretend it isn’t. I should have done it before! But I’m just lucky, I’m lucky. I’ve got a great wife. I love her, yeah," he said. The pair got married in London at the Chelsea Register Office on May 25. The pair seemed to be on cloud nine as they celebrated the big day with close friends and family. The news about their engagement came to light after a photograph of their wedding banns was posted in several British newspapers over that weekend. 

The pair welcomed their first born this spring. While he sees having his kids with him as a blessing he did admit that traveling with kids can be hard sometimes. “It’s unspeakable,” he said. And then you go through that moral torment of, ‘Do I actually travel with them or do I make an excuse so they have to go with their mom or nanny?’ I’ve done it, I’ve done it because you feel so smug when you get to the other end. You’ve done your bit.”

Speaking to People about his kids, the actor confessed that he felt wonderful to receive so much love. “It was the nicest thing that’s ever happened to me — he said sounding clichéd — but it happens to be true. It’s just lovely to have all that love around. Suddenly you love someone more than yourself. It’s unheard of in my case and they love you and it’s all enchanting," he said. 

 

Anna and Hugh are yet to announce the name of their little one. At the same time, Hugh is also dad to son Felix Chang, 5, and daughter Tabitha Xaio Xi, 6 — his children with ex Tinglan Hong. A close friend of Hugh, Elizabeth Hurley revealed the big news about the pair welcoming yet another addition to their family. While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Hurley was asked how she felt about Hugh being a father to so many kids. To this Hurley replied, “Well, he had another last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all."

She also spilled some beans on how Hugh is as a father. “No, he’s an enchanting dad. Really, really sweet. 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," she said.
