Hugh Grant is, reportedly, fertile.

The 53-year-old actor has fathered another love child. According to U.K. publication the Sun, Grant fathered a son in September 2012 with a Swedish TV producer named Anna Elisabet Eberstein. This was reportedly only three months before Grant's girlfriend Tinglan Hong -- the mother of his daughter Tabitha -- gave birth to their second baby, Felix.

"They were pregnant with Hugh's children at the same time. It's an unusual arrangement," a source told the Sun.

Unusual is one way of putting it.

It's not exactly clear if the two women knew they were both expecting the actor's children at the same time.

They do now.

The situation came to light in December, when Grant's name was listed on the re-registered birth certificate of his son with Eberstein.

"Anna is being supported by Hugh all the way. She lives in a very comfortable property in West London and knows that Hugh is there for her," the source added to the Sun. "Anna's parents in Sweden know all about the relationship and she has their blessing."

According to the New York Daily News, Grant confirmed the birth of his second baby with Hong via Twitter last year, but didn't mention his child with Eberstein.

"In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum."

English people talk funny. Excuse me ... tweet funny.

Grant was much more talkative after the birth of his daughter, Tabitha, in October 2011. He spoke with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about becoming a dad.

"Everyone was right all these years, saying: 'Hugh, why don't you have some children? It changes your life.' Now that I have a child, it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some."

He added, "I can't pretend it wasn't a little bit of a surprise. But it's a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby's name in Chinese, because the mother's is Chinese, means 'happy surprise'"

How does one say that in Swedish?

When Grant's daughter, Tabitha was born, Grant's rep confirmed her arrival in a statement reading, "I can confirm that Hugh Grant is the delighted father of a baby girl. He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive."
