It was Hugh's ex Elizabeth Hurley who accidentally spilled the news! She was promoting her show The Royals, when she mentioned the birth.
“I’m very lucky that 31 years into our friendship, he’s still my best friend in the whole world. He’s really a great guy,” she told E! “I see him a lot; I speak to him a lot. You know, he’s now a father of five, he has five kids and he’s a great dad. Yeah, he will remain my best friend for life.”
She gave more details on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “He had another one last week. He has five,” the actress said. “He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He’s an enchanting dad.”
She then joked that fatherhood has made Hugh, 57, a lot better. "Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person," Elizabeth said. "It’s improved him. He’s gone up the scale.”
Anna, a 35-year-old Swedish television producer, already has a five-year-old son, John, and a 2-year-old daughter whose name isn't public. The Notting Hill heartthrob also has two children with his ex Tinglan Hong, Tabitha and Felix. In fact, at one point, Hong and Eberstein were pregnant with Hugh's children at the same time!
