Hugh Grant is getting married for the first time at age 57.
The Notting Hill star is set to tie the knot with Anna Eberstein, just months after they welcomed their third child together.
The actor, who stars in new BBC drama A Very English Scandal, welcomed his fifth child in March, with the 35-year-old Swedish TV producer.
Now, they’ll become man and wife after locking in the ceremony at Chelsea register office.
The official notice of their upcoming nuptials was on display at Chelsea Old Town Hall, not far from their £10 million home.
It comes as a shock to his friends, who reportedly never thought he’d get married. He himself once called marriage “unromantic”, saying: “Do I think humans are meant to be in a 40-year-long faithful relationship? No, no, no.”
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come. He will soon be a pensioer and has finally become a family man.”
Hugh and Anna also share son John, five, and a daughter, two, whose name is unknown.
He’s also father to Tabitha, six, and five-year-old Felix, whom he shares with ex Tinglan Hong. Read more
