Hollywod star Hugh Grant, best known for playing bumbling Britons in romantic comedies like Four Weddings and a Funeral, has married Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein, British media reported on Friday. This is the first time Hugh Grant got married.
Grant, 57, who has played a string of commitment-phobic characters, married the 39-year-old producer at a low-key civil ceremony in London’s Chelsea district, photos of the pair printed in British newspapers showed.
The 57-year-old actor was wearing a dark blue suit, while Eberstein, 39, was dressed in a blue shirt and white skirt, and sported gold wedding band.
Eberstein is the mother of three of Grant’s young children. The Love, Actually star has two other children with former partner Tinglan Hong.
The photos showed Grant and Eberstein leaving the Chelsea register office in London on Friday and posing for pictures on the steps outside with a small group of family members. Grant wore a dark blue suit, while Eberstein was dressed in a blue shirt and white miniskirt and wearing a simple gold wedding band.
Grant’s publicist did not return a Reuters request for comment.
Hugh Grant is a married man, according to multiple reports. The 57-year-old Love Actually star tied the knot for the first time on Friday, with 39-year-old Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein. The two were snapped outside the Chelsea Register Office in London, England, with friends and family, just days after their engagement was revealed via an official notice of their planned marriage being posted on display at the local town hall. The couple have been romantically linked for six years and welcomed their first child, a son, in 2012. A daughter followed in December 2015 and in March, Grant’s pal, Elizabeth Hurley, spilled the beans on their third child. "He had another one last week. He has five," Hurley said on Watch What Happens Live, while discussing her ex and friend, who also has two children from a previous relationship. "He was over 50 when he spawned them all! He's an enchanting dad -- really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It's improved him. He's gone up the scale." In 2016, the Four Weddings and a Funeral actor told Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show that he considered marriage "unromantic," but indicated that he didn’t rule out tying the knot with the right person. "I can see the lovely aspect if you marry exactly the right person -- your best friend and it's cozy and it's lovely," he said. "But, people make so many mistakes. Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful, relationships? No, No, No. Whoever said they were? Only the Bible or something."

Grant, one of Britain’s best-known comic actors, is also famous for his own reluctance to marry. He split up in 2000 with his actress girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley after 13 years together.
“I’m not really a believer in marriage,” he told People magazine in 2015. “I’ve seen very few good examples, maybe five, in my life, but I think otherwise it’s a recipe for mutual misery.”
Grant, the star of twoBridget Jones comedies, also made headlines when he was arrested in Los Angeles in 1995 with a prostitute.
