No one would have thought Hugh Grant would finally settle down, but Anna Eberstein made him do it. There’s no doubt Grant enjoyed the life of a bachelor for most of his life, and after what he previously said about marriage and lifelong monogamy, things took a turn. He even admitted he was wrong in his previous perspective on marriage.
Rumors of Grant dating Swedish producer Eberstein started in 2012, the same year they welcomed their son, John. They briefly took a break in 2014 but eventually got back together in 2015. They also welcomed their second child during that time. Eberstein gave birth to their third child in 2018, and they eventually got married that same year. They had a private wedding held at the Chelsea Register Office in London.
During an interview with “Today,” Grant couldn’t help but gush about his marriage and newfound happiness. Describing his feelings after settling down, he told Savannah Guthrie, “It’s really nice, I can’t pretend it isn’t. I should have done it before. I’m just lucky. I’m lucky. I’ve got a great wife. I love her” (via People). Although there were rumors claiming he married the mother of his three kids for reasons other than love, the actor was quick to defend himself and the authenticity of their marriage. He addressed the rumors on Twitter and said, “No, I didn’t, @Internet. I married her because I love her.”
