Actor Hugh Grant is playing a new role in his real life -- father.
The 51-year-old Nine Months star has become a dad for the first time, welcoming a baby girl early last month, US reported.
The mother of the child is not known yet. (The hunky Englishman was last linked to Chinese actress Tinglan Hong.)
"He's going to be a great dad!" a source told the magazine. "He's beaming about his daughter.
“He's not with the mum anymore, but he's absolutely thrilled."
Grant told Vogue in 2007 he wouldn’t be opposed to hear the pitter patter of little feet.
"As much as I adore myself, I'm quite keen to find someone else to care about more," the A-lister said. "I remember reading a Warren Beatty quote when he finally had children and said what a relief it was to not be all me, me, me."
