Hugh Grant is a dad for the fourth time.

The British actor, 55, welcomed his fourth child on Wednesday, Dec. 16, according to Swedish newspaper Sundsvalls Tidning.

Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein, 37, delivered a daughter, her second child with Grant, the Daily Mail reports. The pair are also parents to son John Mungo, 3.

“I can confirm that I have another grandchild,” Eberstein’s mother Susanne told Swedish paper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda. “It is wonderful.”

Grant is also dad to daughter Tabitha Jīng Xǐ, 4, and son Felix, 3 this month, his children with Tinglan Hong.

Although fatherhood came as a bit of a surprise to Grant, whose firstborn’s name translates to happy surprise in Chinese, he admits it’s changed his life for the better.

“Lots of people warned me … [that] 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,” he told The Guardian in 2012.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have had her, I really am. And I feel a better person.”
