Gareth Gay/Landov

A little over a year after welcoming daughter Tabitha in 2011, Hugh Grant, 52, is taking another stab at fatherhood.

The actor recently took to Twitter to announce that he and Tinglan Hong, 33, have added another baby — a son! — to their brood.

“In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother,” Grant Tweeted Saturday. “Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum.”

Never shy of being a tad cheeky, the Love Actually star added: “And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.”

Becoming a father may have come as a bit of a surprise for the actor, but he’s quickly adjusted to daddy duty.

“Now that I have [a child], it is life changing,” he shared during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I recommend it. Get some.”
