The One Thing Grant Won’t Give His Child

March 19, 2012 by staff 

The One Thing Grant Won’t Give His Child, Actor Hugh Grant has remained tight-lipped on fatherhood since his daughter was born last year, but in a new interview with UK newspaper The Guardian, the Love Actually star says he’s “absolutely thrilled” to be a dad.

Though he admits he’s not been overly fond of babies in the past, his daughter Tabitha seems to have made him have a change of heart: “Um, lots of people warned me about that; they said never let anyone know, but the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually. I thought, well, I’ll bluff through – but very little bluffing has been required. I like my daughter very much. Fantastic. Has she changed my life? I’m not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I’m absolutely thrilled to have had her, I really am. And I feel a better person.”

While you won’t find any parenting books on his bedside table, Hugh, 51, does have his own ideas about how to raise a child and says he’ll be “incredibly strict” with Tabitha on certain issues.

“Well, it would all be total hypocrisy, of course, but things like good manners and not being selfish,” he explains. “It’s just unattractive in a child, I don’t like it. And discipline – I do think discipline’s important. I’m very glad that I had quite a strict mother who was big on discipline, because you really cannot get anything done in life if there’s too much.”
