At 57, Hugh Grant is finally tying the knot. One of the best known bachelors in British history is finally getting married to 39-year-old Anna Eberstein, his girlfriend, later this month.
Grant is famous for playing the characters in films who are community-shy. The roles have been comic and he's acted in films like Four Weddings And a Funeral, and Notting Hill.
Grant, who is a campaigner for total privacy and who wants to make the life of the Press as miserable as all hell, has had many relationships with high-profile women.
The news of the engagement took place and people found out about it when the wedding banners were put up at Kensington and the Chelsea register office. This happened near the £10million home that the two of them stay in west London.
The official notice, that was given about the wedding, was put on display on the screens of the office at the Chelsea Old Town Hall.
A source close to the couple said: "This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come. He will soon be a pensioner and has finally become a family man."
Grant has three children with Anna and the he has had two kids with his former partner Tinglan Hong. He has dated many women in the meantime.
The best known relationship he has had was with actress and model Liz Hurley. The two of them broke their relationship in 2000 after being together for five years. The reason for the split is because he was caught with the famous hooker from Hollywood, Divine Brown.
Grant was also in a relationship with Jemima Khan for about three years before the news came from Khan that she had finally dumped him in 2007.
The award-winning actor has already been romantically linked to his co-stars Martine McCutcheon, Drew Barrymore, and Caroline Stanbury who is a sophisticated PR woman and the former lover of Prince Andrew.
Grant has finally settled down after finding Anna, who is a retail director, at a bar in London almost six years ago.
He was always assumed to be the perennial bachelor or, as Grant himself once put it: "a sad, lonely old man".
The actor plays a disgraced MP Jeremy Thorpe in the show "A Very English Scandal", which is the latest from BBC1. He saw two years before as a marriage that was "unromantic".
Grant said: "Do I think humans are meant to be in 40-year-long faithful relationships? No, No, No."
Hurley, who is now a really good friend of Grant, said in March this year: "Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person."
