Los Angeles, March 18 Actor Hugh Grant reveals that fatherhood has made him a better person.
The “Notting Hill” star hit headlines in November last year when he revealed he had a one-month old daughter following a “fleeting affair” with former model Tinglan Hong.
Revealing that his little girl is called Tabitha, Grant told Guardian magazine, “I did feel a little lumpy (emotional) when I first met my daughter, yeah. Lots of people 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,” he added.
Grant says he is keen to instill a sense of discipline in his daughter Tabitha at a young age, reports contactmusic.com.
“There’s a lot of over-parenting, to my eye, anyway. 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, ‘Oh, well, if you don’t feel like it, don’t do it, just express yourself,’ I’m not really very big on that,” he said.
