Hugh Grant Chats About Fatherhood And Not Spoiling His Daughter

New dad Hugh Grant was spotted leaving BBC1 studios this afternoon.  Hugh dished about parenthood and how he plans to raise his daughter Tabitha.  He gushed:

“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.

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.”

“There probably is some truth that one of our main functions on the planet is to reproduce, because it feels like more of an achievement than it should.  Which is nonsense, really. But yesterday I took my daughter to see my father, who’s in hospital, and all the nurses were cooing over her. And I felt, well, pride.”

Hugh shared that he doesn’t plan to spoil his daughter:

“Good manners and not being selfish. It’s just unattractive in a child, I don’t like it. And discipline — I do think discipline’s important.  I’m very glad that I had quite a strict mother who was big on discipline.”

“My other worry … is not giving your children money. I see nothing but f—ups among my trust-fund friends. It’s like 99 percent f—ups. So I would not want to do that to my children.”

Even though Hugh is no longer with Tabitha’s mother, Tinglan Hong, he shared his admiration for her:

“She is a good person, a nice person; funny, clever, great mother.  And she’s been very badly treated by the media.”
