22 of 173: Hugh Grant's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Nov. 1, 2011 that the actor, star of movies such as 'About A Boy,' 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?' and 'Bridget Jones' Diary,' recently welcomed a baby girl. This is the first child for the actor, who was 51 at the time.

He has not revealed the identity of the child's mother and has also not confirmed any recent relationships.

'I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of a baby girl,' the actor's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com. '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 very friendly terms.'

Grant has never been married. He was last linked romantically to Chinese actress Tinglan Hong. The two have not confirmed a relationship and she has not commented about news of the birth of Grant's daughter.

Grant and Hong were seen together in celebrity photographs in April, as seen in the UK newspaper The Daily Mail, which reported that the two have been dating since January.

Grant has had past relationshipships with actress Elizabeth Hurley and socialite and writer Jemima Khan. He and Hurley dated for about 13 years and even weathered through a much-publicized sex scandal - he was arrested in 1995 for soliciting a prostitute. They broke up in 2000. Grant dated Khan between 2004 and 2007.
